Is it worth getting a premium portable amp for the JH16?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How big of a difference will I see in the lows with a CLAS+Pico with iPhone 4S / Sansa Clip+ ? Should I spend the extra money and get the Rx MK3? I don't care about the cost as much as I care about portability and punchy bass, good vocals is a plus. Considered Mustang for vocals but I read that all RSA amps have minor distortion so I wasn't sure. Listen to 90% hip hop 5% jazz 5% soul/r&b

What do you have now? (source and headphones).

Jh16 has plenty of bass already. Going balanced will give you a punchier and broader sound. Even more, I mean. I had the slim. Fantastic amp. Very good battery life and tiiiiiiiny.
But... Consider also the bulkiness of getting a clas + the mkiii+ all the interconnects...
I recently purchased the fostex hp p1. Very satisfied of it. One interconnect, sturdy, beautiful. Just my two cents.

I have the Arrow amp and it makes a big difference coming from the iphone 4.  Ive got the 3G Arrow and I love the bass punch.  I know there are better amps out there, but I got it for under $200.  I have my arrow velcroed to my iphone.
