I'm ready to buy a pair of 1964ears V6stage, just need a portable amp + dac or amp/dac. Needs to be portable, but not ultra portable. How would you spend around $600 new or used? Thanks!
Portable amp/DAC OR amp + separate DAC recommendation
Maybe Headamp pico USB DAC/Amp ($500)
I know they've come out with some new ones, such as the pico Power. Check their compatibility with low impedance.

Looks like the Fostex is only for Apple iPod/iPhone - I'll be using my dac/amp with a Macbook Pro.

Dude, the human ear can hear everything that it possibly can at 16-bit. Unless your a studio engineer 24 bit, or even 32 bit, does not do you any favors. It only makes it easier to clip music.
You can get a lot of volume out of them. The company's proud of that.
They're big here in Chicago, but I'm not so interested in them. Sorry I can't help.
