    . . . and a link to a review / preview at Sound and Vision:

    Review: V-MODA VAMP Portable iPhone DAC and Headphone Amp | Sound and Vision Magazine

    Still limited to 16/48, though, due to the limitations of the Apple interface - darn. I would love to see this thing use the digital out on the iPhone up to the full capacity of the hardware - if the iPad can do 32/384, why can't the iPhone?

    There is one little issue though - One review noted that the iphone in normal mode (enabled as a phone, 4g etc.) interferes audibly with the DAC or amp. This is critical, since the difference in amps is extremely subtle compared to the difference in various headphones. Of all the other reviews I could find, none mentioned this. I'm not about to turn off my phone just to eliminate interference.
