I am looking for an affordable, easy to use DAP that is powerful enough to drive full-sized headphones, ones that may be up to 300-ohm. I take care of my mother who is very old and has dementia. But she can still learn how to perform simple operations, most of the time. The closer it operates to a standard tape deck or CD player, the better. I am thinking of using the DT880s, ATH-AD900X, or some other open back headphones. I am open to recommendations for this too.
The DAP can be portable, or transportable, I dare say, like her current plug-in-the-wall "boom box". I am thinking about the Fiio X3, but I think that would be too complex for her. She has good ears and I made the mistake of letting her listen to my setup with the DT880s. Now she is calling them her own. :-)
Suggestions will be appreciated.
