Best portable rechargeable DAC/headphone amp w/ spdif coaxial input
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
I definitely considered that but I like the 40 gig of storage and the incredible video quality it has. Not to mention support for FLAC files, which is all I use. Just have this terrible disease that keeps me wanting more. Also want to have more power to run higher end headphones and not be stuck to only high sensitivity phones designed for portable players. Basically, I want my home stereo to go with me everywhere essentially.
Do you know of a better unit with rca coax spdif input that runs off a rechargeable that will give substantially more output than 34mW per side into 16ohm? I am definitely willing to look at everything. I don't know much about the Matrix but I do like it's looks a lot and that is important to me too.

actually you can just go and get a dx100 , sure it will be 200 dollar more expensive , but it does everything , that you described that the q5w will do , it also came with an OS that people still make apps in general for rather than getting stuck on windows CE
Windows CE is definitely a drag. That's for sure. The Q5 is pretty nice sounding on it's own though. I really am just trying to get more power to drive my AKGs. I figured might as well try to get a better outboard DAC too. Why not, right? I'm not looking for a new DAP. There is a Leckerton too, but I can't recall the model offhand. Does Ray Samuels make anything like I'm trying to find?
