    I'm quite interested to actually see how many users connect their iPods upto an amplifier via a LOD. I am considering to purchase the Fiio e5 and a £10 LOD from eBay.

    since the impedance rating is at 64 ohms, i get like crazy bass with the amp

    I'm going to get a LOD, so that means I will probably need to buy an amp anyway. I am choosing for either the iBasso T4, or the Fiio E5. I was actually quite shocked to see someone post on this thread xD.

    I actually have the Headsix (http://www.meier-audio.homepage.t-online.de/amplifiers.htm)

    I just got it since everyone rated it above the iBasso and Fiio on head-fi. xd

    Audiophiles ftw.

    Hmm. I've read around that the iBasso is better than the fiio, probably due to pricing.

    The fiio is really small though, so it might fit your needs.

    Well I don't like that much bass, just enough. I still need a balanced sound to enjoy some vocals.
