This is my first post, so please be gentle :D
I've just taken the plunge and bought a very good set of IEM's and want to get some decent equipment to drive them. I only ordered the IEM's today, but I would like to have some gear ready for them when they arrive.
So I currently have an iPhone 4 with UE TF10's that will tide me over until my Miracles arrive, and give me something to use on the new equipment. But this is where you guys (hopefully) come in, I need some advice on a portable amp to drive them with. Ideally I would like it to be able to run my Sennheiser HD-25's also. I listen to Rock and Heavy Metal if this helps and like a balanced sound signature. I would like it to not be too large, but quality is the number 1 goal, so I understand it's not going to be coin sized. :)
Also, I know this isn't the correct section and I'll post another thread if you recommend so, but would you also recommend a better player? Or is the iPhone 4 OK with the IEM's and an amp? The Cowon J3 seems to get a lot of praise around here, would this be my best bet? Is it necessary?
Thanks all for your assistance in advance. I've read over a lot of these threads before buying my Miracles, so you've all already helped me without knowing.
