Looking for a USB dac that can work with the android and would still be pocketable(so not big, I can carry something along the line of an old 4th gen ipod and a PSP on one pocket , so around that size). I have been looking at the apex glacier (should this work? it is the successor to TTVJ slim), Venturecraft godap, and the xduo danba just posted , so those three would be my choice
anything else that sounds good for "modern" non classical music? along the line of rock , pop in the same size dimension?
Check out the iBasso D-Zero, using it now, it's fantastic! It's sound signature is not incredibly dark but it's on the dark side for sure. It's incredibly tiny as well!
