    please help me choose Cowon D2 OR Sony nwz-a816

    I found futuresonic IEMs do not sound very good. Rather bassy and no real... well anything . So a more balanced player like the Sony might not sound good with it. Futuresonics' IEM is already compensated for bass roll off present in Cowon D2 or most iPods therefor I would say for these...

    cowon d2 vs creative zen

    Also there is the problem that Creative Zen sounds rather badly (for my taste anyway). D2 is clearly the better player out of the two.

    Better audio setup, Creative Zen with Senn PX100's or Sony A816 stock?

    The Sony NWZ-A8xx series includes fairly decent ear buds according to people who have tried them.

    Amp + A816 a negative?

    I prefer my Sony NWZ-S616 and my Sansa Express without amps. I find they sound worse with an amp. I wonder if their push-pull amp topology somehow isn't optimal for driving very high impedance loads like an amplifier. On the other hand my Sony NW-A1000 when switched to lineout mode sounds like...

    Samsung DAPs for Mac OS X

    Most north american samsung daps are mtp. Chances are so is the player you are interested in. MTP support for osx comes from free software called XNJB. Check to see if it supports your player. Though i would suggest you get an iPod as it is an excellent fit with your mac!
