Ok, so I went for the Apogee Duet 2.   Currently running that, then the Little Dot through the Duet 2, and the HD650's through that.   I have achieved new pinnacles today, new climaxes ... I have eargasmed like never before.   What's even better is that I'm going to be on the road in the US as of a few months, and my Little Dot is set up for UK voltage. The Duet 2 seems sufficiently powerful that it'll run the 650's adequately on its own too, and it's slender...
Actually, thinking about it ...    A DAC might be a more sensible option for me, no?   Looking at the Apogee Duet 2. It's got features I don't need, but it's damn sexy and it will do everything I need it to ... 
Oh awesome. In that case, it's definitely one I'll consider.   You wouldn't know any others similar to this one would you? Not asking for endorsements or recommendations necessarily, just products which I can then research.
I was looking at that.   Now complete n00b question here, the inbuilt amp in the X-fi (or any other similar device for that matter) isn't going to interfere with my Little Dot Mk III is it?   Otherwise something like that looks absolutely ideal. As slim, small, slender and stylish as that would be awesome too, and that's well under budget.
So I'm running a pair of HD650's through my Little Dot Mk III, which is plugged straight in to my macbook.   I'm looking at improving the weakest link in my system over Christmas, and I'm assuming at the moment, this is the soundcard in my macbook (it's NOT a macbook pro).   As well as this, the 3.5mm female headphone jack on my macbook is almost completely ruined. I have to sit the cable underneath the laptop otherwise the connection is intermittent because (I'm...
Firstly, I make no apologies for the spelling of organise.    Anyway, I'm using a macbook, and iTunes for my media library, VLC (and sometimes VOX) for flac, and spotify for ... well ... spotify shit.   The trouble is, my flac collection is growing larger and larger, and obviously iTunes isn't renowned for its love of flac, or even the ability to sort it into a library.   So how do you sort your flac collection? Obviously, my low quality music sits happily in...
Just want to add my bit of love for the HD650's.   Sporting my pair now, through a Little Dot Mk III with stock tubes.   I've never heard anything like it before, but like others have said, they're a bitch for upgrades.   All I keep thinking about now is which DAC to buy, which portable headphone amp to buy, when I can justify spending money on upgrading perfectly sufficient stock headphone cables, when to buy more tubes for the Little Dot, when to buy a new...
Bump
Hahaha, brilliant. I've been lurking a while now, and I really love your posts.   Thanks for the advice.   I think it's worse than that though. The cable is still connected, the issue is where the cable has actually snapped. Underneath the cup.  
First, the disclaimer: I bought these when I was out in Canada, before I knew any better.      I'm a fairly heavy user, and as you can see, the Boses' (is that the plural of Bose?) flimsy cables were no match for me. Sound has gone completely from the left cup where the cable has worn away (pictured), and is crackly in the right, where the outer cable has worn away, but there's still a connection.   That being said, I'd still rather they were fixed than...
