Not really a photo of my portable rig but more a shot of my efforts to keep a portable audio bail-out-bag.

I'm really bad at packing for trips the night before and then pulling my hair out on the road as I discover which cable or widget I forgot at home. I constantly travel pretty far off the beaten track, mostly where replacements are impossible to buy.

This represents everything needed to take my ipod classic/ CLAS/ Continental rig on the road. The only unrelated extras are the lightning cable and 12W wall wart for my ipad.
Anyone relate?

I can relate precisely because I'm the exact opposite to you. I always end up bringing too much every time I go somewhere or do something...

Today's comprehensive exam rig: RBed Sansa Clip+ >>> C&C BH2 >>> Earsonics SM64 V2.

 

 Surprisingly fun synergy between this mish-mash of budget and hi-end gear!

Heir audio 4a.i + DIY silver dragon + whiplash cable

Better bass impact ( more tight and precise then the original cable ) with better clarity and separation

The Pelican 1020 will work with room to spare. I'm carrying my X3+E12 combo in a fo leather pouch that came with a pair of Koss Porta Pro and my InEar SD-2:s in a InEar-branded Pelican 1010.

Spotify sounding great from my Sony SP and Fiio E7 also managed to shoot some video and take a few pics on my walk with the dog today and the sun was out!!:smile:

I use a camera case for my rig and it gives plenty of protection and they are all under 20 USD. And come with a lanyard.

Will the 1020 still have room to spare for an ipod classic together with the E12?

I use this with my HiFi-M8 / iPod Touch combo:

But check your dimensions first, since I'm not sure how much taller your stack is against mine...

The Hugo with the AK240 and the Roxanne is the just awesome. The AKG 3003 and the ibasso are now for sale.

 

The AK240 as source for the Hugo and the Roxanne is the end game for me I think. I've found the holy grail with these combo, so not going to look to upgrade for a while, which is sad as I loved  hunting for the holy grail in my portable audio.

 

The hugo has replaced my Schiit Gungnir, the ALO audio RX3B and the CLAS i had before and I don't them at all now I have the Hugo.

I love all type of music but my favourite is Rnb, Hiphop, Jazz and blues.

 

 

For Rnb and Hiphop listening I used my ipod tied to my ALO and clas setup as must of my tracks are in 320kbs format and I loved the sound with that setup but for highrez audio I use my AK240 with my Roxanne. 

 

 

Now I've just replaced everything else, except for the AK240, HUGO and Roxanne.

 

I now use the ipod with Bluetooth though the HUGO when I want to listen to my usual 320k files, but when I'm at home I can use my HUGO as my home DAC connected to my Schiit Mjolnir through either my active speakers or my LCD2 headphones.

 

When I'm out and about and in the mood to listen to some highrez or DSD files I use my AK240 as source for my HUGO with the Roxanne.

 

A bit OTT I know, but it's what I enjoy so don't mind the cost.

 

To answer your question I find using the AK240 with the HUGO and the Roxanne to be a lot more fun listening to music than I did when it was just the AK240 and the Roxanne. The Roxanne now sounds a lot more like full size headphones using the HUGO then it did with just the AK240. I now rarely  use my home setup unless I want to listen using the active speakers. My LCD2 have now taken a back seat to my Roxanne when used through the HUGO.

 

Don't get me wrong the AK240 with the Roxanne was really good, but adding the HUGO has moved it a few steps up.

 

 

I did try the AK240 with balanced, but to me it didn't really make that much of a difference and no way did it sound as good as it does now.

If you like fun and " complex " set-up, then, like me, you can add a tube amp between the HUGO and the Roxane :

Ak100>HUGO>TU-05 tube Amp.>Roxane

VERY GOOD, but... not a chance to pass airport security with this set-up redface.gif !






In few months my TU-05 will replaced by it's small brother, the TUR-06 (also tube based) that has exactly the sale size than the HUGO ( just thicker), and then, the shape of my set-up will be a perfect brick. redface.gif

Just one question left : does AK240>HUGO sound better than AK100>HUGO. Logicaly there is no reason, but....?
