Great sounding amplifier

I was thinking of buying an amplifier for long. I have cayin N3 DAP. The DAP sound pretty good. So, I thought of buying an amplifier from cayin. The C5 is really a very good sounding amplifier. Iam not an audiophile who possesses high cost and high performance head phones. Iam simply using cayin C5 with my Sony Walkman NWZA45 and with RHA basic S500 and MEZE 11 NEO earphones. For me the combination is really giving me a great sound. There is subtle difference in sound but that difference is really gives me great pleasure. Only one drawback is that the amplifier is little bulky. It should be smaller in size and must be compact enough so that we can carry it anywhere with ease. One star less because of heaviness. Previously I used Sony product but Cayin is a great brand if music is concerned. The brand deliver pure music.
