I have yet to find a Portable AMP/DAC/EQ | AMP/EQ | DAC/EQ combo...
 
Maybe something that you can program on the computer with a preset EQ?
 
Perhaps I haven't gotten to the point yet of learning about soldering in my own "parts" to shape the sound?
 
Thank you very much.
 
 
PS: I'm looking to unleash the Sub Bass out of my HFI-780's. I know it's there, I can hear it. I just don't want to distort/crush/bloat it.

I wasn't expecting Sub Bass out of those! I just think it's crazy to walk around with Tube Amps.
More or less for the "Ridiculous Factor".
 
What would honestly help my Sub Bass? Recabling? DAC? Amp (better then a FiiO E5 obviously)?

The headstage arrow 12he is supposed to have a great bass boost.  No firsthand experience though.

Heard that the EAP03 sucks so bad...
I just read that it has an OPA2132 chip.
 
Head Stage Arrow 12HE is $250 and only starts taking order starting July again.
 
Hmmm, I guess I will have to make one myself once I have enough willpower, motivation, determination, inspiration, and... Money.

A pity. I always liked the concept, it seemed like a good direction to go in, trying to providing useful features instead of pimping components. But a good amp section is always fundamental.

I read that the 2227 is warmer has rounder bass... I like the sound of that.
 
The DSP in it is just a crappy portable version of whatever you may find on your computer, it just create that fake surround sound etc...
 
I guess my best bet is to make my own or buy one with the right components.
I don't have much cash though so this will be tough.
