Hi guys, need some advice on a new setup please.
I'm a trained sound/mastering engineer and at home I have my iMac running through an Apogee soundcard into a pair of Focal CMS 65s. Sounds lovely, the monitors are amazing and the Apogee brings such a wide and detailed soundstage! I often use it just with my phones, Beyerdynamics DT250s, and it's just as good.
At the moment for portable, I have an iphone and an A-series Walkman, both sound OK for portable gear, but nothing close to my home setup through phones, the difference in clarity is night and day through the same phones.
I'd like to know if I can get anywhere close to the quality of sound on my home setup, with a portable setup? I'm not going to change my phones as I've had them 10 years and I love them over any other phone I've heard and I know their sound inside out. So I guess I'm just interested in source and DAC/amps where applicable.
If I can't get close to the kind of clarity I get at home, I'll stick with what I've got and live with being a bit disappointed with the sound, but you think there's anything I should check out, let me know.
I've read through so many reviews and forums on the internet, and they all say different things (and obviously none of them compare gear to gear I've already got) that I'm a bit confused as to where I should be looking.
