And as far i understand the upcoming top tier dap of hifiman with be more into the 1100 usd range..but as far i know its only be showed on shows and not yet on sales right now..
Plugging in a high end low inpedance phone directly on the dap wint give u optimal siund quality..but to be honest..if ur willing to spent near 1000 usd on a dap and more the 1000 usd on a headphone..why ur asking for budget amps then? Am a bit confused now..an amp is just as important in ur rig as the other parts as are headphone cables or even upgraded cables between ur dap and amp and upgraded powercables ( i found out recently myself!)
But ofcourse its all my personal opinion..good luck with ur decision.. biggrin.gif

 

 

lol well i was thinking high end dap is still a dap, maybe it can be surpassed by cheaper desktop gears... and im not sure if the hm602 scales up to dx100's level... some people even prefer it than the hm801... the dx100 is probably what im going to get anyway

24bit/192kHz shouldn't theoretically be better than 16bit/48kHz

The bit rates on the other hand...

True, but if you scale those files down to 16bit/48kHz, it should be the same quality.

It does, but first off, you will not be able to hear the freqs above some 20kHz.

Also the 24-bit is just giving you a wider dynamic range, which means that sounds can be quiter/louder. But since 16-bit already supports a dynamic range of some 80-90 dB, i can't see the point.
