I didn't say as strong, I was talking sound quality. But while on the subject, I don't recall him definitively saying how strong it would be in relation to the DACmini, I know he's said the goal is to balance off battery life with the ability to drive just about any headphone with the exception of the worst cases like HE-6 and K1000's. As far as I know they haven't finalized that balance yet though but if they're able to achieve that goal then I expect it should be in the ballpark of the DACmini.
Edit: I know that before and during CANJAM CEntrance was using a less beefy version of the amp but have since decided to forgo that idea. Here's a recent post from Michael from the M8 thread.
