Can anyone recommend a thinner amp that's also an upgrade over the current Penguin Amp I have?

I'm currently pairing it with my iPod Classic 120GB, and I'm looking for something thinner (thus more portable).

My budget is $150.

Thanks,
Bernie

EDIT: Currently looking at the Minibox D, does anyone know how it'd compare to the Penguin Caffeine Ultra?

Or that, I guess. My understanding was that it won't be as thin, but I might be wrong.

Info here: iBasso

Its thinner than a Penguin i think, as to whether its an SQ upgrade, only testing will tell.

You should look hard finding one thinner than the Minibox-D.
