I believe that any home rig worth $1800 will beat it.

ur right about that. the clip is excellend out of the hp out as per rmaa analysis.

ur interconnect is 3 feet? good quality?

as mrarroyo said in his review ahbout the pa2v2 (excellent amp just not enought juice for demanding cans):

Although ranked last the PA2V2 would be my choice if I had $65 or less and I was only planning on driving Grado 60, 80, or 125 or Etymotic ER6 or ER6i. The synergy with those cans is fantastic.
smooth and warm, deep and wide soundstage

And ofcourse the famed sr80.

thats a masterful combination!

edit: 136 bux! u should be given an award

What is the most important part of the rig to you guys?
A kick-ass source? Or incredible phones?
No one seems to have it all. Are they really the ultimate rigs?

Phones are more important. Then the recording quality, then source/amp.

at about $2 a feet and from radioshack I say no, those are actually my first interconnects, I have the 6ft gold series ones that need repair so I'll get that started soon and probably get better ones from a more audio centric source, but that will probably be the last thing I'll worry about and definitely don't see myself buying $100+ cables (ALO Audio), I'll build my own before going that route

I think to really go all-out you need a 24-bit source. I don't see that mentioned anywhere here though. I guess I'd go for either a Sound Devices 24 bit recording rig being used for playback, or a small laptop computer with an spdif card feeding a Core Sound Headline dac/amp.
