Finally, thank G-d, what appears to be the ultimate portable rig

I think I have hit it. Please check below to see if there's anything to improve on. The sound is the best I've ever heard in portable. My mind is still open, (i.e. wallet!).

it's probably stealth-portable. let's say you have that in a backpack, and all that is popping out from there are the UE10s. yeah your back may have a bigger lump on it than normal, but from the outside it looks pretty svelte! I look more chunky with my rig due to the K81DJ, even though my alternative doesn't involve an external DAC. Good job!

I use it while working out daily, lifting weights and elliptical machine. I have the Headroom body belt which fits everything. I'm pretty used to it already.

The only question I have is in the car. Is it better quality to just use the car's CD player or my rig with a cassette adaptor? That whole thing is clumsy in the car! (I have a Chrysler LHS which has a good stereo system).

I'd just use my car'd cdp. Even if you hook up your cdp, the music will still be coming out through your car's speakers.

Those tape adapters sound terrible, even with a good source. They introduce a lot of audible noise (hiss). I'll admit that using the tape adapter out of my Tomahawk sounds better than it did from my iriver H120's headphone or line out jacks, but even then, the tape adapter itself is going to be noisy no matter what. So unless your player is going to be a large digital jukebox rather than a PCDP, it's not worth it. In your case, use the car CDP.

You drive a hot little sleeper!

Sounds like one hell of a portable rig, back on topic!

Wait. You strap a laptop to your body while you're working out? With all those other components? You are the Rambo of hi-fi.

If you stay in Glasgow then it's wise to not bring religion into any conversation, especially in some of the "more" primitive drinking establishments, once you adapt to this policy then it tends to make any topic containing religion off limits.

And yes......Rangers & Celtic fall under the phrase "Religion".

uh.. the laptop kind of takes it out of "ultimate portable" contention. Also, you could do better with the cd player.

I can't decide if the quote in your sig is the funiest thing I have ever read on this site, or your "Rambo of hi-fi" comment. Considering I spit iced tea all over my keyboard, I would have to vote for the latter...
