I have an E17 & ZO2 as my amps running them with Ultrasone 900 Pro.
My source atm is Galaxy S3(US-Sprint), I was thinking about getting an IPod classic 160g or Touch only because I have been reading about LoD giving a much higher sound quality...
I like that I can carry my whole music library on 128GB USB sticks anywhere I go, I have an OTG cable for my S3 and with that I could add music to any device instantly via my S3 so players size is not important to me.
I mainly listen to EDM that I buy on beatport in their uncompressed wav format.
So to my question, would it be worth it to pick up an ipod today with a LoD dock (fiio to start > order a higher quality one off ebay)
My main concern is SQ, I also read a few things about silver producing a completely different sound, does anyone have any experience with silver & EDM music ? How does it affect bass ?
I did test drive IPod Classic / Touch through 3.5 in Best Buy yesterday even tried with my amp, the sound difference seemed strange, Classic even with E17 & +6 / +12 gain did not produce as much sound as my S3 ( volume maxed ) seemed like 35% on my S3.
Touch seemed to have a cleaner sound, tighter, more accentuated then again they were different tracks so I don't know...
What do you guys think ?
Thoughts, suggestions ?
Thanks in advance ;)
