I'm thinking of creating a very lightweight and portable set up
does anyone know of a amp that is as small as the new ipod nano?
The Mustang?? Was seriously considering this one myself for the Nano but don't know dimensions
O and just went on the Samuels' website and discovered the Shadow needs a wrap-around LOD cable because the plug is in the rear of the amp. Makes the portability somewhat of a challenge vs. the Mustang whose cable connections are in the front of the unit.
Most of the time I prefer the E5 to HPO but your IEM choice and signature preference would go further to determining the E5's value.
Visited the Apple store today. OMG that thing is small. I mean almost TOO small. Wondering if any amp could be paired with it. Now that I've seen it, I'm thinking more of the iBasso T3 or something like that. Even the Shadow, I think, would be too big for this tiny little thing
RSA Shadow pairs nicely with 6G Nano (and JH16's).
PS: the LOD is an ALO Low Rider (highly recommend it)
I have to disagree with you on that one. I noticed a definite improvement with E5 and LOD vs HP-out on my iPod Touch. Without the LOD it sounded the same if not worse (using the included interconnect cable.)
I've been considering getting the new nano to go along with the E5 for an ultra portable rig. I checked the dimensions and they are only millimeters apart in size; my LOD is probably bigger haha
