Pictures of Your Portable Rig [Part XI] - Page 43

post #631 of 1377
Thanks guys!!

They are indeed the Sennheiser HD1000 Charleston released in 1995 a part of sennheiser's 50th anniversary in limited numbers under 1000 worldwide i believe. The drivers are based on the HD435, but 140 Ohms and are held into the metal frame my means of little gold springs.

This is their first proper outing since i got them a month or so ago. The old earpad foam had turned to dust and it made them unwearable, luckily Senn still keep spares for them. They are a real change from the HD650 very bright in comparison and surprisingly comfortable thanks to the adjustable leather headband strap.

Here's a few more pics, sorry about the quality

Wow. Gorgeous dosn't do them justice

They look light, and the springs look cool, they sort of add to the comfortable-ness, light-ness look

Thanks Matt, they are very lightweight, you dont even realise your wearing them.

I think of them as my gold plated livewires

Hi Ben, How's live. You talked about modding your Xin the last time we meet. How did that evolve?

And I saw your website went offline. No problems I hope?

Bigger Portable

My suggestion of the ultimate portable rig. Thought your rig was big. Mine's BIGGER:

We start for our source with a macbook, black is cool, but where going money no object here. Enter the gold macbook pro: (ps, that gold should help do some magic in the audioside of things ;-))



The standard 250GB is not gone cut it with WAV files, so slap on a BIG external HDD: LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra ads 500GB extra.



The iPod touch has become obsolete now as a source, so install remote buddy on your macbook pro. Make the pro a wireless hub and use the touch to control the macbook.



Connect the macbook with the your favourite brand of optical wire with the altmann Attraction DAC, which is powered by a small 12 battery like for example the Native Outdoors' 12v Battery Kit:



Then use a nice cable to connect the DAC to the Lisa III "portable" headamp. Size isn't a problem anymore, we're just going for portable and highest SQ:



To get this all fit nicely together, use a bagpack like this nice Logitech KINETIKā„¢ 15.4 Backpack. Could not find a nice bagpack that was transparent to see all this audio glory



After this you only have to add your favourite headphone. IEM would be a shame now, so i am thinking Big Grado's and the likes.

Any sponsors out there to help me make this happen?

Haha Jelle, what a crazyy rig. I wonder if the gold does anything for the MBP sound quality.

If you don't have a battery, you can always hook it up to a bike.
High quality portable audio for the fitness/enviomental geek in all of us!

Walkgood, are those UE11/10's?

I remember on Abi, you loved X3's and were sticking with them, then to SE530, now to customs and a pico!
