Pictured above V-MODA M-100 headphone, iPod 160 GB 7th Gen, CLAS -db DAC, ALO RX MKII amp, Leckerton UHA-6S MKII amp and Leckerton UHA-4 amp. I got over 2000 bones USD lying there in that picture an I'm still waiting on my Heir Audio 4A Customs which is another 700 bones. I'm dreading whats going to happen to my savings when I start experimenting with balanced amps. Thanks for making me a poor man Head-Fi.

Nice family photo:)

@DF, out of curiosity, why did you go for the -dB over the -R if you were going to use SE mode?

Your recommendation was the breaker that made me decide to go with the db. The plan is to go balanced down the road. Ray Samuels has a well known highly respected balanced amp as well as ALO. AlO even recently put out a second lower priced balanced amp so I think there's room enough for me to pick and choose and find a tailored sound that will work for me. By the way, could you link me to a good interconnect for the iPod to -db. The supplied interconnect works fine but I'm not to happy with it and was hoping to scrounge up something more low profile.

My daily frequent-use portable rig:  W4R+Studio V

This might not be the best sounding rig, but definitely one of the most portable listening setup :)

I have the SR-71b and was never really impressed with it. It improved a lot with balancing but still not to my preference. Having said that, yesterday I managed to try my friend's Intruder and I think this time Ray has nailed it! Would be interesting now to compare the Intruder to the International.

 

The Rx Mk3 is still nice but the pot scratch & hiss does get to me on the odd occasion.

About the same height as the CLAS -dB+Rx Mk3 but it is longer as you can see. The length would be the same as the CLAS -dB+RxMk3 with balanced connector.

 

 

All this make that RWAK100 on the left really attractive - balancing size & quality-wise.

I still like the HP-P1 for the total package in one box....

It's been a while, but I am back. These rigs have gotten super crazy!! I've attempted to keep mine as minimal as possible so I can  use it everywhere.

 

Nano 3 ->Xin SuperMini IV -> Silver Custom LowPro -> Yuin Pk1

The rig is kept together with 3m mounting strips, which are incredibly strong. No bands required.

It all goes in this most perfect case - a razer orochi case that has a divider in the middle so I can put the rig on one side and the yuin pk1s on the others. Perfect size.

My set up with ultrasone signature DU :

Source : dap AK 100 standard 

Dac : iBasso DB2 balance Dac 

Amp : Ortofon MHd Q7

headphone : Ultrasone Signature DJ

cable : ibasso DB2 > AK 100 use optical cable sys,concept inc

            Ibasso DB2 > Ortofon MHd Q7 use DIY 4 braid solid silver core 18 awg

   

 

Sound Quality : 

Ortofon MHd Q7 pair with AK 100 has not enough juice to drive headphone , I must use IBasso DB2 as external Dac to make the SQ more balance 

more sweet , and better detail and separation, better bass impact and better bass  body .

this one of my best sounding set up , the SQ so sweet for long listening
