AAC outside of Apple/Android is a crapshoot of compatibility problems though. Pretty much any mp3 encoder will produce a file thats decodable by any device. That isn't true of AAC, at least not yet.

That amp has a permanent 1 db bass boost applied, so it will sound very slightly more bass heavy. That's just gimmicky crap though. Quality devices like the fiio let you turn off eq.

Headfi has some knowledgable people, but very few of them post about audio players. The quality of the information there is very low, so you tend to get a lot of crap.

People hear increased volume as more bass, less volume as more tinny. So if you describe a louder device as having more bass, I'd point out that this is because its louder :)

Match the volumes...

The main advantage the fiio has is that it can drive headphones a lot louder than the Clip (or most portable players). If you have headphones that need this, its very nice to have. If your...

The clip puts out about a half volt which is a few dB below line in level. You could use a preamp with about 2x gain, but I'm not sure its necessary.

If your amp has volume controls, I'd use...

They're the same Qualcomm DACs as most phones use, so I'd expect pretty good audio quality. Their integrated part is pretty good.
