Ok im still fairly new to all this, but ive gone ahead and bought a few portable amps/headphones over the last month to run from my Iaudio U5. So far i run the amp straight off the headphone jack and then plug my headphones into the jack on the amp. But ive read that this will only increase the sound and not actually the quality of the music. Can someone clarify this with me. Will i have to go out and purchase another mp3 player with a line out to get full potential of my amp/headphone setups. To me it seems i have gained some quality when i run my MS-1's amped, unamped i can very well tell the difference. This has totally confused me now.
