no you can use the elpac. but its not portable at all since it cannot be powered by batteries (unless you heavily mod it I guess)

If you can wait, the Xin SuperMicro IV. Otherwise, I would look into the Xenos as recommened above. Or if you put in a bit more money, the Tomahawk is a good choice as well

If the Headphonia Saga doesn't bother you then go ahead and get it. Like you said, nothing's been really proven yet.

Spend $150 on a good home amp, then $100 on the Go-Vibe V6(m) for portable use?

Perhaps...

Spend all on a home headamp. Sounds better than a $150 one and you'll feel like staying home more

Haha. I'm thinking about the Gilmore Lite because I heard it got good reviews. I also heard it sounded really good with Grados.

To the OP, the most concerning part of this "saga" to me as a consumer (not including the obvious ethical issues) was the several comments made regarding it's sub-par build quality.

Actually, I always thought that the Dynalo (Gilmore Lite) was more of a thing for Sennheiser headphones that really benefit from a clean solid state.

For a portable amp, I can't recommend much at the moment as I'm being swept away by my SOHA to places where my portables can't take me

If you don't NEED a portable setup, you'll benefit greatly from a desktop amp and there are quite a few in your $250 price range.

SOHA and Millet Hybrid would be great Tube Hybrid amps that should work very well with Grados. Solid state, I love my PPAv2 and it was pretty nice with my MS-2, but perhaps a MOSFET buffered amp might be nicer to get a little more warmth. Check out an M3 if you see one in the for-sale forum.

Simply put, YES.
