    Using AMP with DAP

    I have A&K SE-300 and WM1AM2 DAPs and I just got Audeze MM-500 headphones. I'm looking for an external amplifier and way to connect my DAPS to the amp and use it to drive my headphones and Fiio speakers.

    Do most people use cases on their DAPs

    Do most people use cases on their DAPs? Many DAP's come with a plastic TPU case, but other's DAPs don't and you'd have to buy one separately. The plastic TPU cases are nice because they don't add too much bulk to the player and you can see the beauty of the player through the case. The Leather...

    Player for my daughter

    Hi, My daughter wants a music player for her birthday. We stream amazon music and pandora. I don’t want to give her a device that can surf the web like an iPod or android. Anyone have any suggestions? Fidelity is less important than price and features. Thanks!
