Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion) - Page 9

Not as good as a digital connection smily_headphones1.gif

Currently I use an iPod Touch 4G with Pure i-20 - with lossless files it's hard to hear any difference from the original CDs smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, I agree, unfortunately this is not possible (Unless somebody proves me wrong). Samsung S3 is able to do it with some Dacs.

I tried it with my Larocco Pocket Reference (IMO, better than Pico DAC/AMP), and the headphone out of the Walkman with S-Master Pro MX is 95% as good as the lineout + amp.  The headphone out on these Sony walkman are really really good.

I tried  a Arrow 4G, Just Audio uHA120, E11 and Orb Jade To Go, and in most case I prefered the Sony HO when using IEMs. My Fidelio L1 is the only portable  can that seems to benefit from an amp but the difference is so small that I usually don't bother.

Yup, pretty much mirror mine take on the headphone out especially the pairing with IEMs.

Line out is taken from headphone out, or is there a separate line level output?

Yes, line out is supported.  Here's the Walkman LOD that I'm using.

Wow...that's a cool looking color there.  How about a "super lighting connector" to set an industry on fire ? wink_face.gif
