Designed to be thinner/slimmer/less thick/whatever you call it, dangit. Most of us do not care if it is 2" by 2" or even 1" by 1". The current wave of new portable amps are downright still just too thick to be pocket friendly. You can't freakin' call it an improvement over the last generation of amps if it's still as thick as the previous batch or thicker than the previous batch regardless of sound, unless of course the previous generation was already thin enough.. I, as a consumer and a portable head-fier, am very disappointed that there has not been any progress in making amps more portable, at all. Mind you, this is excluding USB DAC amp combos at the moment since they are targetted for individuals who use transportable rigs.Don't mind me, I don't know how to design amps or even read schematics, but I'm sure a lot of headfiers wouldn't mind if the parts were spread out, flat to decrease thickness.
