Using RE0 with an Ipod Touch, would an amp/dac combo like the D-Zero, sound better than a dedicated amp like the cMoyBB using a line out dock? I'd like a better sound quality overall.

Well you can only use a DAC if you have a digital connection and the iTouch does not have a digital output. There are a FEW devices that can pull digital off iDevices but they have to be specifically made for that and you'll know it if they do. A DAC/AMP will still give you more convinience and will probably improve your sound when hooked to a computer. I'm not familiar with IBasso products but the E17 will be release within the next couple days and it's what I'd look for in that range. There's a lot of different CMOY's so it's hard to tell.post #3 of 42/15/12 at 8:30pm
The fiio e7 and iBasso D-Zero are both great and the e17 is coming out soon too. since you have an ipod ouch that means you dont have rockbox and are stuck with apples **** EQ and the fiio e7 and e17 have EQ's built in, the ibasso doesnt but it has better build quality and is slimmer.post #4 of 42/15/12 at 10:29pmQuote:Originally Posted by Deki

Look up an app called "Equalizer" from the app store. It's a no mucking round dedicated EQ with flexible options. You won't need to deal with the original players EQ also have an overall boost in SQ. I discovered this app a few weeks ago, you will notice a huge difference both in SQ and flexiable adjustments. Best thing I could of done for my touch
