Thanks for the Great answers. I would certainly be interested in looking at a Digital solution to the Iphone. Im basing my original statement on the little bit of research i did last year.
I have the N900 right now Zenche. I find the sq (out of the box) a little less than my Ipod touch but the N900 is warmer and seems to have a little more depth to the sound. Have you made any modifications that would make any improvements and is it compatible with any kind of external DAC? I dont mind keeping the N900 and using it solely as a DAP if it is a reasonable solution. Also that means i can use it as An ODB Key in the car.
So this brings me on to the Statements of the Iphone not being so bad. I dont find my dads i4 any better or worse than my itouch 2. I hate them both. Perhaps i am of Audiophile status?
BTW if i do plan a DAC/ AMP solution then it would be an added bonus if it would work with my Macbook pro. Also an iphone would be good for me as i can take a digital signal using my Cars Head Unit and i find a direct digital signal from the Ipod actually better than CD's so i know that Iphone/ Ipod has great potential to sound nice. Just not out of the box.
