Atm, A10 is the winner, both in size, look, SQ
(price is around the same if you buy the A10 from MP4nation)
I'll get back after going out, and give you better impressions and comparisons.
I'm glad you took my suggestion and tried the A10, and then ended up loving it!
Great, that's exactly what I thought. It's the same thing Danny has told me since he also owns the E5, E11, ZO2, and A10:
"Sound wise, it's very musical and warm compared to the E11. The E11 is more powerful and more punchy. The A10 is more relaxing to listen to. It never distorted and I actually enjoyed the sound more from the A10 but I think you'll like the E11 better with the cans that you own. The E11 is just better with bassy cans/earphones."
I believe I'm going to stick with the E11, because I love the more punchy bass. I want as much bass as I can get.
So with your D2000, how does the bass feel with the A10 vs. E11? Is the bass from the A10 as clean as the E11?

Yea, that's another downfall, but I just love how this amp sounds. And if you order from Micca, it comes with an extra battery and a wall charger so you can charge one battery while using the other.
