Need Some advice: Ipod Touch/Ipad Portable Amp

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey guys....

 

Haven't been on the forums in awhile. Why? I've reached audio nirvana with a combination of Senn HD800's, a Woo Audio 22 with  Tung Sol 6SN7GT oval plates and Wyred 4 Sound DAC1. It really is something spectacular!

 

So now for the next challenge. I'd like to get a super portable amp to work with my Ipod or Ipad when I travel by plane, at the beach or catting the lawn. All my music for the Ipod is ripped to 320kb

 

I am looking for suggestions for a headphone that will satisfy the following:

 

1) It only needs to drive IEM's

2) Small size, ideal size of an Ipod Touch??

3) Beach worthy

4) Cost $300 or less new, used amps will certainly be a consideration

5) Natural sounding, not colored or bass heavy

6) Battery life 8-12 hours (cross country flights)

 

Any input on creating a short list of quality amps would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Fran

You could look at the PA2V2 amp or take a look at the DecWare ZH1 portable to name a few. You get about 100hrs with PA2V2 and about 50hrs on the DecWare. Check them out, I know there's other's.  atsmile.gif

Got the Amp....I love it. The sound is excellent, perfect for what I wanted it for. Sound quality is excellent, very neutral without sounding overly colored. Plenty of bass to boot!
