It's definitely not the same as the E6. The E6 is certainly more powerful than the Zip. I own them both, and here's the measurements of the E6....

True!

That can be debated, I think....we don't know how loud Tacoboy likes to listen, or what headphones he plans to use.

As I pointed out above, it's got more power than you think it does.

So do I.

No question there....it is a very fine output. Maybe it will be enough for Tacoboy without the amp, maybe not...he's got options, and that's a beautiful thing.

To Tacoboy....the optimum way to use the E6 with the Zip is to have the Zip volume nearly at the max (if you're running Rockbox, set the volume at 0db) and control your volume with the amp. Happy listening! (whether you use the E6 or not)
