I'm looking into a portable source/amp for my Etymotic ER4-P phones. Would it make more sense to get the cheaper Sansa Clip+ and an amp like an Airhead, or to get a more expensive player like the Cowon J3 without an amp. I need to keep my total under $300. I could stretch a little but I really don't want things to get out of control. I listen to a wide variety of music from classical to classic rock to metal. I'm also open to getting the "S" adapter if it can fit in my budget. I have a decent stereo setup (Cairn amp and Triangle speakers) and an x-fi hd in my computer, but don't know much about portable sources. Any ideas? Thanks!
