For a long time I have been seeking a flat frequency response in my portable rig. I currently have the KRK KNS 8400. They are the flattest headphones I could find within my budget. I thought that pairing them with my Clip+ (rockboxed) would be excellent. Unfortunately, I have had two Clip+'s and the headphone jack has failed each time.
Apparently the Fuze has the same problem. I have been wondering if the Clip Zip has fixed this problem (and if it is even rockboxable at this point).
Anyhow, I have come into some money and am now seeking a portable rig that can give me the flat frequency response I desire. I have been looking at iPods with a bit of skepticism. I understand that some iPods really suck but that the ones with Wolfson DACs sound a lot better.
Regardless, I am seeking a flat frequency response. If it means that I have to get a player and use the line out instead of the headphone jack then that is fine considering I have a PA2V2 and according to this link (see below) the PA2V2 is flat (anyone know of the credibility of this measurement?).
I further wonder if there would be any other problems with the PA2V2 as being a neutral amp.
Any suggestions as to what I should do? What players I should look at? Should I go the line out route? I'd appreciate your responses head-fi. Thanks for taking the time to view my thread :)
