    What is your current favorite portable phone external dac/amp?

    Yes, it is worth the change. Even I could not bring myself to do it. My friend.helped me out though. I am no more thinking about selling them. In fact any local electronic repair guys could do it.

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    backer #750 chose gray + black leather case. Now the wait begins. Even I would prefer translucent / clear silicon case.
