Dear headfi,
I've concluded my search for portable amp/dac to these 3 choices. I'll be using it with my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact + OPPO PM3's. Mostly listening to spotify 320kbps.
Meridan Explorer is the cheapest and smallest of the bunch. I've heard a lot of good about it aswell. I don't care much for size though since i'll be keeping it in my bag and not my pocket.
Sony PHA-1 seems really cheap for now. I geuss the price dropped a lot because of the newer models. Is it still worth getting?

OPPO HA-2, everyone recommended me to buy the matching OPPO dac/amp. It's the most expensive of the bunch however... New easily around 600 dollars around here.
So for that money, i can buy a Chord mojo...
so 4th option.
Chord Mojo. If i spend more do i really get more? It looks very ugly but apperently sounds the best out of all of them. 
I hope you guys can help me :).
