I think the sr-71 (best of the 3) and supermicro are better right now, but I have an old revision of the supermacro. I am sending it in next week for updates (those are free from Xin), and from what I hear I expect it to compete if not surpass the sr-71.
To answer your question- Yes- all three portable amps that I have had dramatically improve the sound of the ipod.

I bought the SLVR a while ago to replace my washed out Razr, with all the hype that Motorola created about it's audio capabilities, I was expecting something stellar. Sadly, I was really dissapointed with the SQ. My sister's Sony W810i, sounds significantly better.

I would've gotten one of those, but, Cingular didn't have them.... o well, at least I have something to listen to podcasts on.

Rockbox does extend battery life, but like caramelsoul said, you can replace/upgrade the battery in both the H1x0 and H3x0 series players. They go all the way up to 2300mAh if I remember correctly. Sometimes the fit can get a little tight if you upgrade the HDD as well, so some remove this blue rubber padding that's in there. Hope this clears things up.
