 DAPs you possess: Have or had AK120, Hisound Anniversary 3, RoCoo, Ipod Touch 4, Sansa Clip+ etc. and a couple of amps. I've heard a HM901 with stock amp card and recall it's sig.

-Descriptions and links to review(s) you have posted: http://www.head-fi.org/products/spider-realvoice-vertical-in-the-ear-headphone/reviews/5223

I also have great files to use. I'm dying to try this one as I really like the topology, DAC and opamp selections. Parts and block diagrams don't make a unit great but starting with good choices can sure help. If it works like the vid and sounds like I hope, this one ticks all the right boxes including price.

-DAP(s) you possess:
