What kind of portable amps might y'all recommend for a high end CIEM like the K10?
I am too long invested in the Apple ecosystem to use anything but an iPod for the player, but I am totally open for amp ideas. I would like something with great battery life (20 hours minimum) and low impedance, good for sensitive iems, and no hiss/noise floor.
I had a JDS C241 that I really liked but didn't last long enough for me. I have another one that had great battery life but is unshielded and hence gets a lot of electronic interference.
I also have the JDSLabs and like it so far; but am thinking of switching to the RSA SR-71B that seems to be awesome and unanimous in the reviews here for IEM: no ground noise at all and an awesome autonomy!
I would not recommend the ALO MK3+ as ALO confirmed to me the presence of noise with sensitive IEM..
