Affordable DAP with available LOD

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Is the original Sansa Fuse the only affordable, readily available, non-Apple DAP with available line out dock cables? Couldn't determine via search. I love my Clip+ and Galaxy S with VooDoo sound, but would like to get decent portable amp, and that's pointing me toward finding a player with available LOD.

Just use the Clip+ with the amp. No LOD necessary.

I have a Sansa Fuze, and the headphone jacket to Fiio amp works great for me.

I realize that you can use the headphone out into an amp, but it's not ideal. I'd like something that has a clean line level output that will bypass the unit's own built in amplifier.

lol I think he means PMPs that are huge. About the only 'portable' player you could use with a DAC would be an Android tablet using an OTG cable or an iPad with the camera connection kit. Even then, the DAC can't draw too much power or it won't work.

 

About the only consumer players I know of that have LODs would be Sony Walkmans, Sansa Fuze (+) (or View which has long been discontinued), Zune, and iPod.

 

 

btw, @all thumbs, why is it that you don't want an iPod? I'm just wondering because if it's iTunes you don't like, just google "iTunes alternatives" and some should come up. I used Sharepod once and quite liked it, although I only used it to import songs from my iPod, but I'm pretty sure you can sync with it as well.

No, brick player is a player with big XX size and not really portable, for example: QLS QA-350

It was a response to the topic starters question, why use a LOD if you have a player with Line out on-board?

 


Also, you don't need to use a DAC with the T51, as it's onboard DAC is quite good and it has a dedicated line out, so a good amp is all you need.

Digital Audio Player (MP3 player doesn't really cover the load with so many different fileformats. e.g. iPods, Sansa Fuze, Cowon J3 are DAPs)

Line Out Dock (a device or cable to make a line level signal available from a devices 'dock' connector e.g. Fiio L9 is a LOD for iPod, Fiio L6 is a LOD for Sansa Fuze)
