I own/owned many sources, you can check my profile.
Recently while tinkering around I've been using H-200 with Sansa Clip+ finding they sound resonably good together, especially when you consider the Sansa's price point. I can plug my Westone 4 into the Clip+ but it does not offer the same results as H-200 does. There's something about putting these two pieces of gear together, no amp, straight from the Clip+ set flat running FLAC with SPC cable on H-200.
Not only do they sound great with this source they go exceptionally loud. I could easily use H-200 with say for instance.. Studio V or Colorfly C3 which by all means sounds great, but there's something about that damn Clip+ with H-200, something about the PRaT between them that's really smooth and enjoyable. Pick a Clip+ up for $25 - $30, install Rockbox, buy a nice little silicon case and you're done. I do not usually recommend the Clip+ at all, but in this instance I will give a golden star.Edited by H20Fidelity - 8/1/13 at 11:08pm
