If I were to switch out the FiiO L8 with a FiiO L9 would the sound quality make that big of a difference?

 

In a word YES.

However there is more to it than just swapping to an LOD.

The Source makes a huge difference,

So say you're listening to 128kbps mp3's then its gonna sound not so great either way.

When I swapped out to an LOD I noticed the difference immediately.

you're going straight from the DAC to your Cmoy and the signal is going to be cleaner, Crisper

& more detailed.

 

Wether the difference is Big or small is down to YOUR ears, As we are all different in how we 

perceive sound. 

 

Hope this helps a little?? :)

what if the people that uses ipod uses ALAC, which should be the same as FLAC anyway, considering they are both lossless file format

Go on over to the basshead thread and you'll see that double amping the E11 with the ZO2.3 is a popular basshead setup. I think it may be a bit bulky in the long run to double amp but I can't think of anything that would be a big upgrade that would retain the sme amoun of bass for sub $200. I was loking at the C&C BH but I havent read enough on it.

I listen to mostly ALAC. Either ripped from CDs or convert from a WAV download.

iPod touch 5G -> harman/kardon NC. No amps, I simply prefer plugging straight into the iPod jack, the bulkiness of having bricks attached to it has never appealed to me. 
So you attach bricks to your head instead lol

Nice! I assume that this edition is an absolute rarity :-D
Is this thing able to power the JH16 properly?
This cable looks awesome but anything but flexible...
