I recently obtained some high quality custom IEMs, and am looking for a good amp/DAC setup for them. For amplification purposes, is a Fostex HP-P1 going to give me significantly better sound compared to the Pico Slim? The HP-P1 is significantly more expensive and larger, but it is also serves for DAC. From an amplification standpoint, it seems like the HP-P1 might be a bit of overkill, and I don't want to spend more money than I have to. Should I get the Pico Slim, or is the extra money on the HP-P1 worth it?
I'll be playing my music for the time being from a 160GB Ipod Classic, and maybe upgrading my source later.

Let me know your thoughts,
