I don't know if this type of thread has ever been created, but I am interested in buying a high quality portable audio player that plays FLAC audio, as well as a high-end portable amplifier. I am currently using a 4th generation iPod Touch (64GB), paired with a Fiio e5 amplifier and Sony XB-1000 headphones, but it seems as if it only boosts the volume, and my music sounds "hollow", if that makes any sense. What do you recommend I purchase (up to $1,200 total)?
Please also share what portable combination you use as well, thank you very much!!!!
