Well first thing: They like the power of the source.
My best sounding devices are İpod Touch 4th Gen and Samsung i9100 (with Woodoo Louder software to boost the soundchip output).
A portable CD player like Sony D-465 sounds fantastic but I cannot travel with it all the time (also most of my archive are either FLAC or 320kbps mp3).
Sandisk Sansa Fuze (Rockboxed) didn't sound well directly. But last night I have paired it with my Fiio11 and it sounds slightly better than my other sources. Also bass boost on the amp (I prefer first step) works really well.
If I manage to produce a line out cable for the Fuze, I believe this little and cheap combo may make wonders... (not sure for now).
I have checked DSD's but they're out of my price range...
We need some information from the: Fiio X5, iBasso DX50, iBasso DX90, Colorfly C3 users.
