I just bought a Grado SR80i. I am also planning on buying a Cowon J3 and an amp (PA2V2.or Little Dot I+ Hybrid- whichever helps with the bass) I am very new to the audiophile world and have some questions.
1. I know that using line out from an iPod to plug into an amp bypasses the opamp. However, I am also aware that Cowon does not have a line out (correct me if I'm wrong). I want to know if not bypassing the internal amp affects the sound.
2. Also does plugging Cowon into an amp affect the EQ setting.
P.S. Any help with choosing an amp would be appreciated.
