Hey, I know it seems like a competition some times, but it's really all about the music, right?  I like the portability of your rig.  And the broccoli band is awesome!!

(A new amp, then new headphones/IEMs, then a new DAP) then repeat. And when you're sick of it, move onto desktop. smily_headphones1.gif

Not a bad start man! You might consider sending the iPod into be iModded. That would climb several steps up the ol' head-fi portable ladder.

Vinnie at RWA said he only found ipod 4G, 5G abd 5.5 G which are the best sounding ipods to be modded.
I am not sure he considers to mod the 7G classic.

According to the info the mod is only for the 4th, 5th, and 5.5 gens. No? I have the 7th gen.

TPGsanti,
TBH if you think ipod 7G is a choice of your DAP you can save money to buy the Cypher Labs Theorem 720 dac/amp (cost $800 new). If it is not in your budget range then sell 7G to get iBasso DX50 or Fiio X3 ($150-$200).

Thanks for the suggestions. I do plan to keep 7G for a good while. I have looked at dac options. Cypher Labs Theorem 720 being one of them, but sadly not in my current budget.

As of right now I must take baby steps, and really keep budget in mind. As well after RockBoxing SQ has greatly improved for my 7G iPod IMO.

You cannot go wrong with a first gen. CLAS.  Beautiful sound, Wolfson chip, and I think they're on the used market for around $300 (if not less).  This combo has kept me from diving into the high end DAP market (so far!).  Then, when budget allows, upgrade the amp.

I charge the Theorem every 2 days, which automatically charges my phone.

Pebble watch lasts 8-9 days per charge. 

very nice LOD
Could you tell me the name of LOD?
