While I'm waiting for my sweet Flare Audio R2Pros to arrive... Was fiddling about and decided to try Neutron player for iOS... Gosh! Suddenly I have no need for any external amps with the pre-amp tuned up in the app. Making me fall in love with my EX1000 all over again. Makes it even good enough over bluetooth > Sony SBH20 > EX1000. So much so that I just ordered a 25cm for the EX1000 to use with the SBH20 lol.
That said, can't wait to see how the 5mm dynamic on the R2Pro stacks up against the EX1000 :)
