I hope someone has an answer to this question too. Is there actually a way for me to be able to check this myself? short of buying and testing it myself I mean. I'm full of n00bness, but people are talking about ohms and impotence
as if there's a scientific way to find out... sorry bit o/t.
I'd suggest iBasso D2 Boa but it's around $170. Out of you budget. Than NuForce Icon Mobile, quite close to Boa by sound quality, would be the best for you. I own D2000 and it's great duet with D2 Boa.

Man, the Mobile is cute!
I was just reading a rave review of the Icon in Sterophile. Maybe I'll check this out.
Edit: Just placed my order for the Icon (not the Mobile). I couldn't resist, and I needed something like this ever since my Griffin PowerWave petered out.

The Nuforce is good, better than I expected and similar to the Meier Headsix, but I do think the the D3 has a little more weight and substance and depth to the sound. Maybe the D3 is a German sport sedan and the Nuforce is a quick and nimble hopped up Japanese import with aftermarket turbo. Still, I am using the Nuforce more than the D3 because of the RFI problem with D3. It is a good match with the Denon and Ultrasone.

I'm a little distressed that Skylab disliked the Nuforce treble and forward mids so much, so I have to re-listen to it some more. Unfortunately I haven't heard the T4 yet.
