I had a portable rig: iPod 4G/CLAS/SR-71b/Westone 4r. All cabling is Moon Audio Silver Dragon v1 IEM.
Recently, I reached out to Drew to address problems I had with this rig:
- About 1/3 of my digital music collection is 24/96 in lossless uncompressed FLAC and WAV; this rig is limited to 16/48;
- iPod does not natively support FLAC, so I had to use a third-party app for FLAC that was at times buggy and did not play other formats - had to run iTunes and FLAC player
- I travel a bit for work and this rig was a brick to carry around when I travel
He suggested keeping the SR-71b and buying a AK100.
I could not be more pleased - all formats are accepted, 24/96 hi-res is no issue and the AK100/SR-71b footprint is relatively small - tiny compared to my previous brick. Needless to say, the SQ is absolutely stunning
Once again, Drew gave great advice, excellent service and quick shipping.
