Portable amp to drive full sized cans .... Everyone is always asking this ....

It seems that a very knowledgable reviewer, Steve Guttenberg, stated the Furutech / ADL Cruise drove his difficult to drive HD580s very well in his review which can be read here :

Portable... eh?

I would consider the Cruise more transportable than portable as it is quite large and the wedge shape makes it problematical to stack with a DAP. The Cruise is undeniably powerful and has a lush and capacious sound-stage. 

 

Cheers.

For me ... if it fits in a blue jean pocket it is portable ...

I just received the Cruise in the mail, and had planned on selling it in the box unopened, but I just had to look at it LOL.  I can certainly see why people keep saying that photos don't do it justice !  Man is it ever beautiful. it is smaller than the photos make it look too. Oh well ... I decided to go desktop instead, and that is still what I am going to do, but if I were still in the market for a portable, this would be on my short list based on the looks alone LOL.

I can tell you with NO DOUBT that the Leckerton UHA-4 will make the HD650's SING.

FWIW, I just heard a HD600 running off a 2stepdance and boy did it ever make choral music sound good.
