PS: I am not an audiophile hence might have some noob question. Pardon me.
Guys, when I am driving, I use my iPad to listen to musics since my car had AUX input.
Currently I am using the 3.5mm cable to connect my iPad to my car AUX input using the headphone jack at my iPad.
I noticed that the base is not strong when I play music and it's sound light. I need to turn on it very high on my audio system when listening.
My car does have a 9 speaker BOSE premium audio system, but then it seems to me the music is not really good.
Hence, after some search, I noticed by using the headphone jack, music out from it will be pre-amp from my iPad itself instead of the car amp. Is this true?
Then I found that many people saying that if to connect from iPhone/Ipod to a portable amp and then to headphone, must definitely use line out adapter then only use a 3.5mm cable to connect to the amp/headphone.
So my questions is, will the sound quality improve if I use the Line Out adapted instead of the headphone jack?
Meaning from my iPad (connected with a line out adapter at the 32pin beow) > 3.5mm cable connect to my car AUX input.
Will it helps?
Then another questions to this, if I were to get a cheap portable Amp, those below USD100 ones, like the Fiio E6 or Fiio E11, will the sound quality improve?
