Question is, even with them being the same chipset is assume that the topping uses better internal components.

Part of me is thinking less in the box is better though, which would suggest my existing cheap as chips pcm2704 ele-d02s will continue to do the job.

I like the idea of having a proper volume control though to use on my desk setup. With the amplified ele I end up having the volume set to 1 otherwise it's just way, way too loud!

If I don't go down the topping route I'm thinking of a bravo ocean and either the line out from the existing ele or possibly a stoner acoustics ud110 :-/
