2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our gear over to the care of Jude as we understood him.

4. Made a fearless and searching inventory of our audio gear.

5. Admitted to Jude, to ourselves, and another head-fier the exact nature of our audio gear.

6. Were entirely ready to have Jude relieve us of our audio gear so that he can sell it on the for sale thread.

7. Humbly asked him to just take the damn gear already.

8. Made a list of all head-fiers we had made snarky comments towards, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends when possible, except when doing so would cause their egos to inflate or inspire them to buy even more gear.

10. Continued to take inventory of our audio products, and when we broke down and bought something, promptly sold it on the for sale thread to somebody from Latvia with absolutely no feedback.

11. Through well-written reviews and cleverly designed, Jude-inspired avatars, sought to improve our conscious contact with Jude, asking only for knowledge of the next great pair of headphones or dap before anybody else learned about it so that we could start a thread and seem really smart to other head-fiers.

12. Having finally smelt the proverbial coffee as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicted head-fiers, and practice these principles in all our affairs.

The CLAS/iPod Classic is still here but added recently are Final Audio Design's magnificent Piano Forte IX's and the equally magnificent new release from Analog Squared Paper the portable (well, OK, transportable.. Actually, no! Portable as I take it with me to my local coffee shop) class A TU-05 tube amp.

The sound is simply wonderful, this feels more like a full sized set up than a portable. Battery life on the amp is around 7 hours which is more than enough for me.

Wow...

 

That Piano Forte looks like a jewelry

Nice gear but I gotta ask....with a 16GB player why not ALAC instead of AIFF?

Actually I've got everything in both AIFF and ALAC.  I keep all of my music on a 1TB drive and then only have the songs I really listen to on a daily basis on the iPod so the size of AIFF isn't an issue.  With my Etymotics I hear a slight difference in the clarity of AIFF over ALAC (which is probably all in my head)  so thats my main reason for AIFF.

I thought the venturecraft cable didn't support OTG, the one in this link right? http://venturecraft.jp/gadget_en/gdx.php. Don't really wana drop $35 on something that I'm not sure will work. It'll save a lot of space and look way better than anything I have right now that's for sure.

Yep as far as I know the Venturecraft cable is a Micro B to Micro B making it impossible to use with a normal DAC.

It works with an OTG device or an SRP-capable peripheral-only B-device which the  Venturecraft Go-Dap X is making swapping one end with the other unnecessary.

What you can do is buy a micro otg usb cable...cut up the female portion also buy a male micro usb connector and solder it up.
