micro IDSD is a killer portable (!) amp Wink have the silver edition ! some cans are harder to drive - not necessarily 600Ohm ones laugh out loud / most planar, AKG712 @ 150Ohm, etc. - really require juice to make 'em sing Smilie I rarely use turbo mode on IDSD - normal mode does the trick ! powerhouse on steroids ! Rock

as for desktop Wink would say nano would be my choice (you can also drive speakers w/it!) as for portable (centrance / and I have "slim") - non of my iphones was able to power it up - but ipad did, so is laptop and to my surprise (I did try it w/samsung (don't remember the model - wasn't my phone)) Smilie samsung did power centrance - not sure how much battery it would drain ?! anyway - imho -both are designed for desktop/laptop application - and I would give "cake" to nano !

I've considering an entry level DAC for sometime now. Is the nano that much Superior to the micro here?

most planar HPs (all fostex RP series, most HIFIMAN (560 is a ... laugh out loud ), LCD series by Audeze, AKG starting w/612s / rater @ 120Ohm. 712s @ 150Ohm, and many - many others which are rated at more or less friendly impedance Smilie + 250-600Ohm senns or beyers ! do 600Ohm sound better (don't forget they do have the same sound signature - but are in a different world in their response and detail, especially in lower end (more vivid and punchy)) than 32Ohm - ?! - would say - a big YES (performance-wise) - drawback is you'll need an amp laugh out loud micro IDSD will not disappoint !
