I currently use my nokia 920 phone which from reading gives amazing audio quality to my headphones. Denon D2000 + Sony MA-900
 
Someone has offered me the  Colorfly C4 for £350 delivered and I am considering buying it.
 
As I am unable to test it I am unsure if I would notice much difference over my nokia phone and Fiio amp?
 
Your thoughts?
 
I plan to listen to Flac or uncompressed Wav audio 
 
Thanks!!

A FiiO amp? Probably a better idea to drop that cash on a new amp rather than a new source. The phone is pretty nice, but an amp upgrade could do wonders.

I have a Fiio E7 amp 

Unless the Nokia allows for digital out and you are using that DAC, (I don't think it does) you are using the E7 amp only, and it's not a very good amp. On par with the E6 amp wise. I'd buy a new amp if you have that money to blow on headphone gear.

I don't think the 920 has a line out, so adding an amp is pointless.
 
To the OP, that's a great deal, being in the UK these things rarely turn up used
so get it, it'll be a jump up from your present sound and the D2000s deserve 
something better
