Should I upgrade my portable amp.?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently own a iBasso-D-Zero and i use it with my ipod touch 64Gb with 1964Triple CIEM, for portable use.
then at home using itunes I use the D-Zero then my Ultrasone Pro 900, BrainWavz HM5 and HD650.

Should I give this baby up.? and upgrade or what i have now is good.?

thanks

Also price range needs to be 100-150$ at most cant spend 200$ on a amp

I haven't heard it personally, but the UHA-4 should run circles around the D-Zero....

:Does it need to be portable? Why not use the Dzero portably and invest in a better sounding desktop setup?

yeah, unfortunately i spent 80% of my time listening to music on the road/traveling.
so a real desktop setup wouldnt be necessary as of now

save up another hundred or two and look at the HP-p1 and CLAS range of devices.

 

They bypass your Apple devces DAC and use their own. The HP p1 has both a DAC and an amp while the CLAS is only a DAC

Yes, I agree with that, the bottle neck of your rig is the internal DAC of your iPod.
