On vacation in Navarre Beach, Florida - here's my travel rig:  

 

WAV on SD Cards > Windows 7 > Foobar w/WASAPI > DACport LX (sitting on a heat sink) >  16VDC external battery powered iBasso PB2 Pelican with LME49990s and HA5002 buffers > balanced Toxic Cables Silver Poision > LCD-2 rev.1 

 

It's 64-degrees, windy and overcast at Navarre Beach, today.   I'm hanging out indoors while the girls are out "shopping."  During the day, the Pensacola Beach spring break crowd is no doubt wishing they had gone farther south - but the weather surely isn't dampening anyone's evening agendas.  smile.gif

Hi Ian!

 

I still use the Sony PCM-M10 > Stepdance as my truly "portable" rig - when walking the dog or hanging out in a hammock.  biggrin.gif   But I usually wear the Beyerdynamic DT-1350 for that purpose - especially when in public - instead of the LCD-2.   

 

The rig above is for when I'm going to be listening in a hotel room or elsewhere, on business or personal trips - gives me higher quality than I can get with the Sony PCM-M10 > Stepdance (better DAC, more powerful amp) - but I use the same 64 GB microSD cards for my WAV files - whether using the Sony PCM-M10 or the 10-inch laptop shown above.  Reading the files from the laptop's SD card reader avoids glitches caused by other apps competing for the hard drive.

 

I'm still following your posts at the FAD page - you're having a really good time with your portable tube amp, it seems!

Ahh, thats a relief Mike, I can't imagine you without that set up. I am really enjoying the amp, wish you were closer so you could have a listen.

My system has really changed now. I just got this week one of the last HiFiMAN HM-801's available and am loving it both as a stand alone player and connected to my amp. I am now down to one box when out and about and loving it!

So now the blackbird and CLAS will depart and in all likelihood the LCD's as well.

I have been thinking about the DT1350's for some time, do you enjoy them and knowing how I like my sounds do you think I would. The other one I am contemplating is the T70P which would probably end up as my only full sized headphone, I like the idea of noise isolation. Enjoy your vacation my friend.

Ian,

 

The DT1350's are uncomfortable - they're notorious for that - and if you try putting some larger ear pads on that Beyer makes available, you can lose the good seal and suffer a loss of bass.  I can wear them for a couple of hours, no problem, but as with most supra-aural designs, they pinch the tops of years against your skull - so you start out feeling OK, then it kind of hurts, and later on, you get used to it, but when you eventually take them off after a couple of hours - you feel relieved.   Overall, given how much you like your Final Audio Design Piano Forte IX, I'm at a bit of a loss for recommending anything else, but the DT1350 is very neutral, with a smooth transition from bass to midrange to treble - and the bass is amazingly tight with great extension - the DT1350 sounds good even with my Sansa Clip+ - which is my ultralight rig, that I prefer to using IEMs now, but the DT1350 scale up very nicely with more power - sounding even better.
