I guess if you wanted a device that could drive full sized headphones halfway decently that was also portable, the HM 801 would be a consideration but it's DAC is truely nothing spectacular for a home rig. For about the same price as the HM 801 though, you could probably end up buying a Cowon J3, a Shiit Lyr, and a decent DAC probably from the F/S forum.
