If he max out the volume of the micro iDSD, would that still be considered double amping? In the nano iDSD, maxing out its volume would make it exactly like a DAC.
Yeah. The iDSD has a design where best SNR (and other measurable stuff/least distortion/best channel balance) is at 12 o'clock to 2 o'clock. This is only through the headphone out. The preamp achieves channel balance at a really early point of the travel.
