There's a little more info to be found in posts to these threads:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/749214/audeze-el-8-the-el-8-is-a-must-hear-at-ces-2015/2790#post_11366191   http://www.head-fi.org/t/684394/audeze-lcd-x/5985#post_11367079 
^ I agree.  The closer a flexible cable resides to the jack itself, the less damage can be done to the jack over time.  Using the OPPO-provided USB A -to- USB Micro B cable would be better for those who don't handle their gear with finesse.  And ultimately, a custom terminated WMC-NWH10 would be better still - with a right-angle plug.   I've never been one to make "bricks" out of my portable gear, as I tend to bounce between two extremes:   Situations where I want to...

Even HDTracks is announcing new Zep titles.  It's seem Zep was holding out, selling only vinyl and CDs.
 People equipped with very efficient IEMs or headphones - those capable of delivering their best performance (or at least a satisfying performance) with the A17's amp providing only 10 mW into a 16-Ohm load - could surely find themselves content to run the A17 without an external amp, as long as they also like the signature of Sony's proprietary DAC.  But, yes!  That's a great idea for those with headphones that need more power - to have a custom cable crafted - modifying...
 I like that custom cable idea.  Lots of portable stacks out there are at their tidiest with custom cables. I wouldn't wear full size flagship headphones on a commuter train or bus, but I would also be reluctant to whip out an expensive looking brick of portable electronics. A bag like that Case Logic offering keeps things a bit more discrete and provides padding against knocks and tumbles.  As soon as you add anything to a small DAP, it's tough to think of it as...
^ I agree it would be kind of clumsy, but would work OK in a small bag somewhat like this:
You must not have examined the links I provided in the post you are quoting:http://www.head-fi.org/t/755879/oppo-ha-2-portable-headphone-amplifier-dac-discussion-thread/135#post_11363727Hint: Connect them together in this sequence.
      
 Oh, good!  Thanks for the "reveal." Mike
