I think I saw this recommendation earlier in the thread, but I will reiterate it:
Get the Fiio X3.
It seems that others have had success with the X3 and the Dn-1000. I have used the X3 with the Akg Q701's and it drove them. If it can drive the Q's, it should do fine with the Dn-1000.
Also, the X3 just sounds brilliant, imo.
(this was a reply to jptj24, but it did not show up as such).
Thanks for lettinge know I am currently saving to get the X3. After all, what I had planned if I still had my walkman Z would be amping it, so as to match the impedances. But the X3 looks so good it doesn't even need amping. I'll be sure to post my impressions when I get the X3.
Edit for quote fail lol
