I have a pair of Noble Kaiser Encores, and will soon have Audeze LCD-X for home use. My main playback device is my iPhone X with local ALAC files, but I am running out of space. So, unless I convert my ALAC files to MP3 320kbps I'm going to need to use a separate DAP. I've been looking at the A&K Kann (or any other such high-end DAP). My thinking is that such a device would provide me with the portable space for the music, while also being a DAC for my CIEMs and an amp+DAC with enough high-end to get the MOST from my new LCD-X. That way I wouldn't have to buy two separate devices (one DAP/DAC + a desktop amp for the LCD-X) Is this logical thinking? Or, would I better off with a desktop amp for the LCD-X over such a DAP device? Blended in to this decision, is also if I do not use a DAP and instead a DAC and separate desktop amp at home, I would as I mentioned above convert my ALAC files to MP3s - would this be more severe step back whereas I would be far better off with the DAP where I could have the lossless files but then be driving the LCD-X from the DAP rather than a desktop amp?
