I do this all the time. I'm very happy with what I ended up buying. Good luck with your adventure

Yup Yup, got a job so I'm slowy picking off item from that list! Sadly a Wii U and a 1080p are about 40% of that budget.... so I'm passing up on a Litle Dot Mkiv and Getting my MONSTER HUNTER FIX, instead [which btw has a nice Ost :D] 

 

U know you an Audiophile, when you repourpose your entire room lay out to make room for moe cans! [Used some old Metal Hangars to make Head Phone Holders.... they actually work really well! The hangers can withstand about 8lbs without bending and dropping cans ^^]

When you wear full-sized, open headphones portably if at all possible, since they sound so much better than your portable sets...

I'd have trouble doing that considering the general need for isolation where I do my portable listening. I do use a full-size set, though, which is kind of annoying in the winter because the oversized strain relief on the cable entry tends to get caught on my hoodie and jacket and keeps yanking them off my ears.

 

Nice set of ear warmers, though.

I don't even know what the "thing" does. Does it have 1 source, 2 DACs, and 2 amps or something? Why are there 5 separate units in the rig? D:

It assures the people who make each of the separate components that they still have a market, no matter how ridiculously lopsided the cost vs benefit / usability vs benefit ratios on this stuff might be.

What's a transport? blink.gif

 

Besides, even with all of that gear, and whatever headphone it powers, I highly doubt the user could actually detect much of a difference between that rig and a significantly smaller package...it's like bringing FLAC or 24/192 music with you on a bus. XD

Reminds me of the dream I had when I saw a pair of grey M50s with vacuum tubes coming out of them.
