Yeah it weighs kind of a lot so I'm not gonna drag it around haha. The difference with dac/amps after a certain dollar value started to register as negligible as long as you're getting clean power. I've never had an amp "save" a pair of headphones that I didn't enjoy. In my earlier days when I was pretty broke, I kind of went against the grain and just built up a collection of headphones, not headphone amps like I'm seeing these days LOL. I have a fairly decent library of cans, and I've been using the same amps for like two years now!
