Looking to create a rig. I'm stuck at what source. I was looking at ipod touch 4g w/ LOD, ipod nano 6G, sticking with my Samsung M1, or Cowon D3. I'm going to be using an audiotechnica W1000X and it's as easy to drive as the CK10s. However, I might go for the stepdance for the better overall SQ and soundstage.
But using HO with cowon and samsung makes an external amp obsolete no?
So what would you suggest, 4D? Do you think the D3 will drive my w1000x to its fullest potential without disappointing, able to stand its own against an LO with stepdance?
