    Help choosing a portable amp and/or DAC for my Android phone (less than $100)

    The source will be my Android mytouch 4g and I'm looking for a DAC/AMP to listen to music with. I sold my Ipod Classic because the Android phone does all my music.

    Why does 1 of my receivers sound worse than the other?

    I have 2 receivers. One is a Denon and the other is an Onkyo. The Onkyo is much newer with HDMI and all that stuff but the Denon sounds better. Noticeably. Is it because the Denon has a better built in DAC? Or can it be due to something else? Btw, this is for both speakers and the headphone out...

    I just picked up a used Denon AVR-2800 not too long ago and there's "Analog" mode. Under the label "Input" there are 3 buttons: "Input mode" (this toggles between Auto, PCM and DTS), "Analog", and "Ext. In".    The main question I want to figure out is if I get a DAC like a uDac-2 and make...
