Another vote for the iPod Classic > CLAS > JH3A > JH16's.  I received a couple of weeks ago a TWag2 Eclipse for the 16s and the sound improvement is significant for me.

+1, but take out the HDD, and replace it with a 256 GB CF card.

iPod -- aftermarket LOD --> CLAS -- aftermarket interconnect --> Triad Audio L3 -aftermarket IEM cable - [custom IEM*]

iPod -- aftermarket LOD --> CLAS -- aftermarket interconnect --> [upcoming] Alo Rx MkIII -- balanced aftermarket IEM cable --> [custom IEM*]

* some IEMs considered to be among the best are:
