After Sansa Clip +, what now?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all!


I've been wanting to upgrade my current DAP to something that can provide more power to drive my IEMs so that I can get a fuller sound!


Does anybody have any suggestions? I'm already noted the existence of the following DAPs which are potential upgrades:


1. Cowon J3

2. Sony Z series

3. Galaxy Android Players

4. Sansa Fuze +


My requirements are:


1. Android/ Rockboxable

2.High output power

3. Clean sound of the same or (preferably) higher quality than the Sansa Clip +

4. Microsd slot/ Large capacity


I'm still a student so my budget is not exactly plentiful...... Does anyone have any other suggestions towards the DAP I can use or should I go for an amp instead?


Thanks in Advance! (:

For FM radio listening, the Sansa Clip Zip floor me with its FM reception quality. Much better than my expensive AVR.


I have tried with and without extra help of the Fiio E6. The Sansa amp section is loud enough to drive the Senn HD280 to deafen level. For more bass, I use the JVC hrax 700.


Budget gadget for those who love FM radio, Sansa clip zip is the way to go. Get yourself a full size can like Sony V6 or the Senn HD 280 and prepare for some ear blasting with quality from nearby FM stations.

What IEMs are you using?  I'm astonished the Clip+ isn't loud enough.

I personally use an SM3v2. Actually, I have no complaints about the volume. I think that the ipod touch provides more separation, power and detail...... and the sansa clip + doesn't.
