Ok, this is what happened. i purchased the new Sony Walkman NWZ a728 about a month ago and WOW, impressive sound quality was an understatement. After messing around with the DAC settings the thing was just flawless SQ wise. But i returned it for the Cowon D2 after reading all these glowing but partialy fanbased reviews because i planned on using it with a portable amp. I guess people say it has a clean enough headphone out to be used with an amp. However i just find the sound quality too robotic and not as to my liking as the Sony player. Just wondering if anyone could tell me if the sony could be used with a portable amp from the headphone out like the Cowon D2, since it lacks a true line out. I just couldnt find any info on this perhaps because its a newer player. I really want to go back to the Sony, its just so slim and sexy and if i could use it with a portable amp i would be in heaven, thx guys.
