Pictures of Your Portable Rig Part VII - Page 8  

post #106 of 1013
I've listened to canalphones exclusivly for 3 years and i'm so glad i've bought my first pair of headphones for home listening, although i may wear the grado's out sometimes if the occasion is different from the norm - festivals, fancy dress party's etc....i think they look pretty cool.

The sound is as big as the amp is small. I love it, and highly recommend it.

To be honest, it was kind of a pain. The tubing came from Action Electronics, the Canare connectors from Markertek.com, and I just bought fine 30ga. silver from some shop in new york. They were cheap to build, but dealing with the thin silver in the teflon tubes was tedious. Plus the connectors are too damn big... much bigger than my amp . So I'll probably redo them with a better design when I get around to it (they do sound awful good though, if you believe in that sort of thing).

Thanks! I'm pretty thrilled with how it's sounding, this setup should make travelling and the summers (when my 2-channel room is too hot for listening) a lot more bearable.

Sweet rig Gary! What cable is that? Do I spy 3 wires? You make it? Damn that supermicro is small. Maybe in future I will buy a Xin amp for myself

Thanks. It's diy, and it's actually 6 strands of silver each in a piece of small gage teflon tubing braided together... and yeah, the supermicro is definitely "micro."

I'm fairly certain that word is used globally

Update:

(Notice the circle scraped into my laptop after a careless grado nickel mod )

80GB iPod>Bling Bling>Pengamp>E500

Next up: Tomahawk. the E500's are starting to show the abilities of my amp.
