Any one using a DAP with the SR-001 MKII Stax headphones? Which DAP's may be good enough to use with the Stax?

I use 2 setups.

iMod into the Stax energizer

iRiver h120 optical out > MicroDac into Stax energizer

Sounds as good as the SR-001 MKII can get.

I use my iPod photo. Lossless and rockbox with crossfeed. Sounds bloody wonderful.

I used my 1G iPod nano for the SR-001MK2 system.
Playing back Apple Lossless files I found it to be a good enough source for the system.

Sounded quite nice, especially for a portable system.
