I'm post my portable rigs again... already can post picture...
just newbie stuff... still waiting for my hifiman and my DIY interconnect...
Nice rig, Santo! There's no way the W4R is newbie stuff, if you ask me :)
Modest travelling setups:
Klipsch X10 for planes, trains and automobiles.
Bose QC15, just for planes.
The new FiiO E12 might fit your bill better for home use, if you don't mind not having a dac included. Nice Rig, though.
How can you recommend the E12 when no one has heard it yet? I love FiiO and I bet it's a winner, but at this point, no one knows...
I was wondering that myself... When is it set for release?
I don't think the E12 has a DAC....it's just a powerful amp.
Thanks, I may pick one up as an upgrade from the E11 then!
You're right, typo on my part from my original post. Was thinking, "not having a dac included", fixed. Thanks for the catch and yes the E12 is only an amp.
That's why I said may, because I don't know... I was going of the assumption that it would suit his needs better than the E11 would for a home rig better because the output power is much greater. He wanted to start building a "home rig" and mentioned both E11 and E17 both of which are small amps and the E17 being a Amp/Dac. I'm not saying it will be good, bad, or anything... I simply said that the E12 should be consider as he said "in the process" which means considering options. I was stating that the E12 is a potential option in the near future, that is all.
I think we are all babies compared with Rudi
