As indicated, I'm looking for an amp for my Imod. (I mostly use Denon AH-D1001 headphones at work.) I use the Alo Audio OCC Triple-Pipe Cryo cable for my LOD. Price isn't too critical, but I would like to keep it under $250. I'm somewhat torn on an integrated DAC. On one hand, I'm quite happy with the sound of my Imod, but I also have an regular Video Ipod that I may want to use in the future, so an integrated DAC might be useful. (If it can be bypassed, so much the better.)
I have a Goldpoint amp as my desk rig, but I need something for lab use. I often move from bench to bench, depending on what I'm doing, so a portable would probably be my better option.
Kits are also an option. I've been looking at the AMB Mini^3 as a possible solution.
