Will there be noticeable difference with a DAP like some of the Fiio/iBasso?
I guess you're totally right
Very much. Thus the steep prices for these audio players.
One of the weakness of DAP is the UI, iphone or ipod nano users usually hate the DAP UI.
Grab the new HRT idSp DAC if it works with 4....kickstarter or somewhere...try it before you dump $250+ on a DAP !
You can get the Kaisertone app for your Iphone. It plays Flac files and has 31 band eq to mess with. Or you can install the BBE app that sounds really nice too.
Yes, because it doesn't meet the requirements. I will abide by the rules.
So I ordered new op amps for this amp and made it sound fantastic - very smooth, detailed highs, tight bass with good quantity, and a bit of liquid 3d sound. I am using 2 ADA4637-1BRZ op amps and they sound fantastic. The ad8597 and the original TI OPA ones were a no go for my ears.
