Hi all -

 

Need advise on a portable DAC to pair with a current-fen iPod Touch (64GB) and an Alo Continental V3 amp.

 

I gather from the iOS7 thread that I no longer need an MFI-compatible device but can get a digital out using a Lightning CCK, which I have purchased.

 

So my question is - what is the best portable DAC I can get for $500 or so?   Or, given the fact that the iPod can only handle 24/48 files, is it even worth bothering with another DAC - should I just stick to a LOD?

 

(I plan to use this setup with an Audio Technica AT-W1000X and Fidelio X1 headphones)

 

TIA.
