Portable? As in with a Handle? I haven't seen a Portable Turntable with speakers since the mid 80's. Your only chance is eBay/Craig's list, and even if you found one it would still suck.
Why? Leave the amp hooked up and playing (I've used a DirecTV music channel in a pinch) 24/7 for 7-10 days, then listen. Just be sure to place the amp where children won't be tempted by the Glowing bits, and place it somewhere that is clear of combustibles (paper, draperies, gasoline, thermite... etc.).   If I'm going to be listening to any of my tubed amps anytime in the next next 4-6 hours I generally leave them on (They sound better after being on for several hours...
Since you exchanged information it might be wise to swing by and take some pictures of the damaged truck, that is if there is no additional damage.
 Drew is a legitimate dealer, so he qualifies for a free pass (if registering early enough).Sorry - Jude already answered.Jude does get around, I ran into him at the OnHigherNote function. Although he ran away before we had a chance to chat (between the Luxman amp and all of the hot air being generated by the High End audio types there it was hotter than Hell in the room so I was in the hall and ultimately I was probably the one who ran away
I disagree with the statement that "Most" of us with computer based setups are using Active monitors. Is is true in so much that most Computer based systems are using crap cheap computer speakers. Most users who are after higher sound quality however output to some form of amp to drive conventional speakers. I have no less than 3 separate computer based systems, all use conventional speakers. 1) Office System - Coaxial out from my 4TB office computer feeding an Exemplar...
What? Can't afford a set of "New" Headphones?   or for that matter a "Modern" Solid State Amp?  
Any DAC that they come out with WILL have COAX digital input. What Jason was alluding to was the difficulty in getting USB to sound good, but he hinted that Mike (A known perfectionist) was finally smiling regarding this dilemma. So I'd expect a DAC that has Both COAX and USB (Also probably TOS Link, but who really cares about it  ).
Koss KSC-75. Silly ass question, it's subjective. Might as well ask what's the best color.
Also, the reality is that 130 mW (.13 Watt) @ 600 Ω, 260 mW (.26 Watt) @ 300 Ω, 600 mW (.6 Watt) @ 100 Ω, and 1 watt @ 50 Ω (1000 mW) is an indication that the amp is infact acting as a near perfect current source (Doubles power as the load impedance is halved).   Everything else being equal (It seldom is) a headphones Efficiency or Sensitivity works this way. For every 3 dB increase in Sound Preasure Level (Measured in dB) it normally takes twice the Power...
I'm a huge fan of the Asgard. It's pure magic with my HE-5LE's. Even though the claim is that the final production (sic) HE-6's are as easy to drive as the 5LE's I found the Asgard HE-6 pairing overall to be inferior to the Asgard HE-5LE pairing. I think the HE-6 are great (IMO they spank the LCD-2's) but I'd say the Asgard liked driving the 6's, whereas the Asgard Loves driving the 5LE's, go figure?   This opinion was formed at the recent NY meet, so it was under...
