It's an SRD-X i.e. the portable amp with transformers inside and not the SR-X Mk3 Pro headphone.

Agree, it is a great portable amp, and quite reasonable to use at home as well. I can assure you it works just as fine with Normal Bias ESPs

Yes, the SuperFatCat SRM-001 option is a great choice when full portability is required (e.g travelling, etc) but I still prefer the SRD-XPro for that favourite outdoor listening spot in the bushland behind my home with the full size ESPs - more comfortable for a longer listen than the SR-001 Mk2s

You mean the SR-X/MK3 Pro I guess?! Yeah, thats a great 'phone.
The one I had were not original, but probably as close as it gets. Best of luck finding one...

Yeah they are extremely rare, and I have no idea what they cost.

I have a mountain in my backyard, so I can sit on my porch with my HEV70/HE60 plugged in and still enjoy the country through my iMod...

Granted.

Though I guess any of us would need to move to find a location with a good beach relatively close to a good set of mountains (probably why we focus on getting paradise for the ears before we focus on finding the best visual location to listen in)

You can always try Reykjavik. It's surrounded by both the sea and mountains.

San Francisco has some mountains not too far away

Maybe I'm moving to Hawaii in 3 years when my wife can retire at 54 years old with 75-80% of her salary as her pension plan payments (90% if she waits till 58 years old).

Also has a great bakery (another essential for me) and fellow ESP owners nearby but the temperature range gives me some concern as to how frequently I'd actually utilise the 'beach'.

Has always looked appealing. Will visit someday I'm sure.

Yes, has a good balance of views too, but humidity there has always been the killer for me (Yes, I am too picky - Reykjavik too cool, Hawaii too humid )

You could use one beach all year round as they pump hot water into the sea there but there are only about a dozen or so days each year when the air temperature is high enough here in Reykjavik. Some of the places near the glaciers are much hotter though but no beaches unless you count the violent streams which flow from those huge blocks of ice.

What kind of hot water do they pump in the sea ?
