X5 came in today. Feeding my SM64s and the need to upgrade the portable situation is gone!

Is that a 521

You using it as a phone or just as a dap?

It's the 520 but, it's the same phone as the 521 just att brandend.  I'm using it solely as a DAP.  I'm quite impressed with it in that capacity.   Now just to wait for a good podcast app with variable speed playback and it will be nearly perfect.

Weston 4r actually. I will agree with you that the Amp is a bit of over kill in some situations. I find that the quality of instrumental, Jazz and Vocal improve significantly with the amp. Rock, Rap, Pop Electronic and techno are rarely affected by the amp.

beerchug.gif I'm using a Lumia 925, and it has extremely low noise. (less than my FiiO E11.) I hate it when some people on this site say the Lumia's sound quality sucks. Its quite good. No matter what headphones I slap on it, there isn't any noise. Its cleaner than my sisters galaxy s4 and my parents nexus 5's. All I know is that the newest wp8 Lumia's sound good. I haven't exactly tried the lumia 521, but its good to know that even at the low end the audio is great.

hmm... Well, wp8.1 is coming next month... Be on the lookout for an update! Its going to add a personal assistant named cortana, (halo lol. Microsoft pulled a funny.) the ability to use a picture on the live tiles, 63853d1398025417t-wp_ss_20140420_0001.png and a lot more features... And lol. At the bottom of the picture it says Lumia 520 available at best buy for 50$.

Todays rig. Giving the ZMF Masters some out of house time.

This is such an inspirational thread. Such amazing gear and variety. 

 

Back from a gear hiatus after figuring out that I can get a line out of a Lightning connector iPhone. Hi all.

 

Here's my 'On the Go' rig:

 

Shure SE535s are brand new replacement from Shure after my SE530s finally gave up. I'm burning them in now. 

I used Shure SE530 for many years. Got them as gift originally when they were the E500PTH model and never put them down. 

 

Sorry for sub par pic. My Source is also my best camera.

Thanks!

 

The new (to me) cable system on the SE535s is great! Leaves recable options open for the future. I like options.

I'm actually waiting for the Shure iPhone adapter so I can upgrade my 'Stealth Rig Mode'. (UE Super.fi Pro 5 has ben filling in since Shure SE530s bit the dust)

The SE535 stock cable mini plug won't fit my iPhone case - but I read on these forums that the adapter one is small enough. Thanks Head-Fi.

 

Gear is no joke. I've come back to this forum only a few days and have already spent around $700.

Can't wait for the rest of goodies to arrive!
