Advice for portable amp around 200
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I do not believe you can connect the Apple 30-pin LOD port to the ODACs USB input.
I would say to get the Fiio E11 portable headphone amplifier ($50) and a Fiio L cable ($10), us that with your iPhone4.
Otherwise the cheapest DAC that can connect to the Apple LOD port is the HRT iStreamer, and it's not really a "portable" DAC.
E17 has a DAC, which you already have, E11 cannot be used whilst charging, JDS Labs C421 is your best bet, excellent sound, and can be used whilst charging, you just use a nice Mini-Mini cable to connect the 2, and get a nice LOD to connect it to your iphone.
The E17 comes with a DAC, the E17 comes with USB, optical & coaxial (digital) inputs, none of which will connect to the iPod's 30-pin LOD port.
