I published this in the wrong forum so I'm reposting it.
I have Grado SR80i and want to upgrade to SR225i eventually. I am also planning on buying a Cowon J3 and an amp (PA2V2 or Little Dot I+ Hybrid or FiiO E17- whichever helps in the bass department without sacrificing treble) 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?
3. If not using line out is a problem, then are Cowons not compatible with amps?
P.S. Any help with choosing an amp would be appreciated. (Price Range up to 150 USD)
