In term of clarify, detail, separation and sound stage,

can you share the comparison between AK120 vs Soundroid (SDT)+iPod Classic?

Which is a better option between these two options?

My classic is in my car, but based on my test with my iPod Touch 5th gen, the different is very small as the up conversion of the SDT works really well.  However, I am not talking about DSD or FLAC, just iTunes bought M4As.  Also CEntrance is working fixing their M8 for 24/96 native input from an iDevice, and when that happens, I think most people will go for the M8 instead.  So the decision factor will be are you going to use FLAC with the Classic above 16/44?  If you are staying with M4A or ALAC, then the SDT is a very good buy now, especially with all the opamp options.

The battery life was the killer decision for me in which I went for. The M8 wouldn't last a full day of work so was out of the picture before sound even came into it.

 

Have you tried the MUSES01 yet?

Not yet, but I have listen to my 02 for a good part of yesterday afternoon and the night.  I will start listening to the 01 this afternoon as I don't think the 02 is good for me.

I saw that Sony just announced PHA-2 with DSD capability a few days ago.

Yes, and it does 128DSD not just 64 from the SDT.

Yes but I don't think that my ear will be able to differentiate between those two. :D

No, and unless it has optical input for DAPs, 128DSD from a computer now it's sort of not very useful.

The PHA-2 uses the PCM1795 & seems to support DSD64/128 natively than the SounDroid which uses the SA9027 DSP to convert to PCM which then feeds into the PCM5102A).

Between Soundroid (solid state amp) and Go-DAP DD (tube amp), which one sounds better when pairing with iPod Classic 160G?

Which one has wider sound stage, better detail, good separation, deep bass....?

For me, Go-Dap TT (Go-Dap DD is DAC only) soundstage is a bit narrower and more intimate than SounDroid. TT has more deep bass and sound a lot warmer but still as detail as SounDroid (MUSES02 OpAmp). The only drawback of TT is the playback time. Less than 6 hours compare to 10 hours on soundroid is a bit short.

Thanks for correction (Go-DAP TT).

 

I also found V-moda Vamp Verza.

Can you comment the sound between Verza vs SounDroid?

Which one is more superior in sound stage, separation, clarity+detail and bass?

I think the SDT edge out slightly but not by much.  However, power wise the VERZA tumps it so it will have better bass.
