I tried it earlier tonight and it sounded pretty great at about 75% volume on high gain. I guess I'm asking if it would really benefit from a beefier amp.

hahaha, I'm sure one of us will buy it!
The Quickstep. Not sure it's better, but the black color matches my TP more appropriately.
If this is your first portable amp, then you are doing quite well.
Just got another Quickstep off the FS forum. Yes, I am that crazy and I change my mind often. Yes, I do think the Quickstep is that good.
However, after a few minutes of trying the Quickstep, I realized that something was wrong. It sounded terrible. It took more of the volume pot to power my headphones and the sound lacked deep bass and space. I opened up the Quickstep and realized it was in low power mode. While this doubles the battery life of the Quickstep, it sounds pretty bad. I tried the Quickstep after the change and everything was right in the world again.
Just a tip for anyone who buys a Quickstep on the FS forum - check to make sure it is on high power mode. You would be very disappointed if it is.
I can't help but wonder if the seller knew what impact that switch setting had made on SQ. It's easy to imagine he/she may have sold it because he/she was unimpressed with the sound.
I'm glad you figured it out - and that all is well with your purchase!
