By the way, are you sure you don't make the sound of the Clip actually worse by using the FiiO amp? I very much doubt it improves the RE2 in any way (can't say about the Portapro, but probably it makes them louder).
Yes, porta pros is a bit too much for clip+ to handle alone (60ohm what were they thinking ~25 years ago?
). What i like about fiio e5 is that it makes RE2 sound a bit warmer
, other than that i haven't noticed any change in SQ.
P.S. I wish clip+ had a clip like fiio e5 does, it seems a lot more durable...
