I think theres more to than just DACs and amp sections. My iPhone4 sounds good for what it is but it doesn't even touch my Studio V or AK120 in terms of sound quality. I did feel the iPhone improved with amplification but nothing large or to warrant carrying amp with it. Ultimately I think imementation is the most important aspect in regards to the outcome in sound quality. The 3rd ANV is a testament of that IMO.
