I feel like sswam is just a shill. He doesn't post anywhere but here, and only sings the praise of the Open Pandora. No better definition. The sig also promotes the product, I wouldn't be surprised to know that its one of the open pandora developer's account. Could just be a diehard fanboy...
Looks the the OP finally got the open pandora.
1. What other sources do you have? I remember you had an iPhone 3G that had been through the wash, and lost some functionality.
2. How is it better?
3. You didn't really mention which version you have. There is Classic, Rebirth, and 1Ghz version.
But that's not what this thread, nor this forum is for.
1: I have my laptop, desktop, PS Vita, iPod Nano 4th gen, iPhone 3G, and FiiO E7 to compare to. I'll be receiving an AudioQuest Dragonfly soon, and I'm gonna ask to borrow my friend's Clip+ as well. Maybe I can borrow a reference-grade DAP like the HM-801 or the RoCoo P from one of the members here. I also might send the handheld to NwAvGuy to have it measured.
2: I'd say the sound is much cleaner and has more texture than any of the other sources. It has plenty of power to spare and drives everything I've thrown at it quite well (except the SE-700). I only just got it, so I don't have much more to say yet other than its a far more engaging and enjoyable experience than my other devices provide.
3: I mentioned earlier that the only diference between the different versions is the CPU and RAM. The audio hardware is exactly the same. I have the Rebirth Edition.
