Telling people to post elsewhere just because they have a different preference isn't exactly mature. Have you ever thought that some people use their portable rigs in a different manner than you? Some use them around the house when they don't want to be tied to their desktop rig. Some use them in quiet areas at work or school like an office or study room. Some use them in hotel rooms after traveling on the job. Some take these rigs to headphone meetups so they can enjoy their full-size cans on the go.
Please, before you chastise your fellow headphone enthusiasts, remember that everyone has a different philosophy. None of these philosophies are "incorrect" and all are welcome here.
With that said, here is a rig of mine from long ago. Notice the removable single-entry cable.
Wouldn't most people that have traveling jobs just bring their laptop instead? So why not take a picture of one's laptop connected to a portable amp with your choice of open-back headphones instead? That would make much more sense to me personally. I mean, I was just confused and didn't mean to sound condescending or harsh at all. Maybe the last sentence, but don't take it too much out of context. I honestly thought it was for commuting/public uses due to the iPod. I didn't and wouldn't make a post like that to pictures with open-backed headphones connected to a laptop, for obvious reasons.
So, I apologize if people misunderstood or took my post harshly/condescending. I really am sorry, truly from the bottom of my heart.
I mean if farhangleo posted the picture with his laptop instead of the iPod classic, I would have known and understand it was for environments/situations like that. Honestly there is no need for 7 or 8 posts of attacking my post which was out of mere confusion (and some frustration).
That is not true. Why would you ask if I ever used the bus or train? You're the one sounding harsh and quoting and replying to my post three times. Have you ever tried a high-end IEM, or a CIEM or a high-end IEM with custom molded ear tips? I assure you the results do not sound like rubbish on trains, busses, or airplanes. I am not judging you for your setup, just explain to me the fact that you use it in other rooms and etc. and I'll get it. No need for the consecutive quoting and attacks.
How fast is your read/write in the SD? I have a Kingston 128 sd in my rock boxed 5th and the write speed is hopeless.. no more than 2MByte/s
Wait, no caps? You mean the caps are in the iMod right? Can't be cap-less.
My 256GB CF writes at 12 mb/s in disk mode enabled in apple's OF. It writes at 8 mb/s from Rockbox.
Yes to my ears the CF sounds better (to my surprise) than the SDXC on these DMod's. The CF sounds more dynamic with better imaging.
If you are not aware, the UHA-6S.MK2 amp has a specially designed servo circuit which can compensate the 1500 mV dc (from ipod lod without caps). The UHA does not have any dc blocking caps.
Have you tried other amps besides the E17?
I like the E17 but don't like the button placement. The top rubber band has to go somewhere and often ends up covering the Menu button on the E17.
portable but strictly for indoor use!
Ipad 3 playing dff's via Onko HF Player -> iDSD -> RSA Protector - balanced out --> toxic Silver Poison -> HE-500 = Lovely!!!
Yeah we shouldn't derail this thread and just drop that discussion. But to make a point tho, I don't give a damn about anything else other than my ears when it comes to this hobby.
