We are in the portable section. Didn't think it really mattered what the source was. Laptop, iPod, Portable disk player, ect. Maybe i'm missing something?

Well...an iPod or any other portable scource that cant output a un-DACed signal, cant use a DAC. An ipod cant, unless u use some of those huge bricks to get a clean digital signal instead of analog. The D10 is a DAC/AMP, and the DAC is the real deal, but the amp is just decent. So if ur scource is an iPod or a scource that cant output a digital signal. if you just need an amp get the P3+, which is 80 bucks less, better amp section with 9 volts, which will drive headphones alot better than the D10
