That's true. I have yet to see someone actually compare the amp section of the VERZA, or VAMP for that matter, next to other amps or DACs alone. The real question is how large of a sound quality difference do you get from just a line-out connection to an amp? You'll likely be using the VERZA with a mobile device, with mobile listening. The increase in sound quality with those applications is very likely diminished and would therefore be a waste of money were it not for the ability to charge the battery. If I needed an amp and DAC for portable, non-mobile usage, a highly regarded combo would probably be a better investment versus a built-for-mobile combo.
