...only without the clever "stacking" form factor!

I totally don't see the point f DSD playback on a portable device, not to mention that's almost no DSD content out there

 
Same here, most of my stuff is streamed on the go.
 
You are better off buying the new Walkman a series than any other thing if you want the best stacking and portability.

 
I want to be able to listen to music off of spotify and youtube hence the use of an iPod :)

Nice find. It says engineered \ best listening experience with 1A & A10. So I'm guessing it's not going to be better than PHA2.
