Hey guys so I'm relatively new to the whole amp/dac life and was wondering what would be the best option for me. Right now I'm running my W3, FXZ200, Denon D2000 directly through my ipod touch and macbook pro. I'm looking for something that will make my music sound more full and engaging with a larger soundstage and was wondering if it would be better just to get a great portable amp (since I use my ipod touch on the go mostly and I can't use the DAC feature since I'm using an apple product) and get a great DAC to use at home through my macbook or would it be more convenient to get an amp/dac all together?
Right now I am some of the portable amp/dac I'm looking at the Leckerton UHA-6 mk II, Apex Glacier, Ibasso D12, Pico portable amp/dac, Ray Samuals "The Predator"
Regular portable amps I'm looking at are the JDS Labs C421, Pico Slim, Ray Samuals The Blackbird, P51 Mustang, The Shadow, The Hornet, The Tomahawk, C&C X02, Alo Audio The National, RxMkII, Headstage Arrow 12HE 4G
I know it's a lot of info but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
