I have just got back into Minidisc after a number of years abscence, i have been using a standard Ipod with of course MP3 compressed music and up until digging out my Sony 909 MD player i had thought the sound quality was just fine.... i was wrong. The difference between MP3 on my Ipod and the same album on my MD player at SP is chalk and cheese. So with this in mind i have decided to go down the SQ route and religate my MP3 player for runs in the park etc.
So, what is all this about amps ? I want to upgrade my headphones to something a lot better than i have, and with this will i need a headphone amp ? I am very confused about where they can be used and if you do use them what you get by using them. I live in the UK and only listen to my MD player when in the house so size of amp/headphones is not an issue, cost is also not to much of an issue as i really appreciate good quality music.
So what amp/headphones would you recommend (full sized/over the ears ones) and just what will i get from my MD player that i currently don't get now by listening via the headphone jack on the player ?
