Not really a "portable" set-up but rather ... "transportable" !
Connected by an Optical Cable, I paired a (RW)AK100 with a "battery operated" Tubed DAC/AMP Bellina PRO from RedWine Audio (I ordered the Bellina Pro inside the "old" case because I did not like too much the woody case)
And I has my TH900 rewired Balanced to take full advantage of the balanced output of the amp. Plus I got a tube upgrade to
the MiniWatt Dario E188CC.
First impressions are very good and I could notice a real improvement in background silence when I use the DAC/AMP operated on Battery.
And since the battery is really convenient to carry the system from room to room, or even outside... I made a case to carry the Bellina + power
+ headphone + my RWAK100 used as source.
You will have some great hours on the road with those headphones! I heard the Signature Pro for the first time last weekend at a meet and their signature suits me very well. The Edition 8 is on the contrary not my cup of tea. The Bang & Olufsen handset will probably live for another 10 years
Well that is interesting. I say that I love them with the Tera, and you say it is not good...let's agree to disagree. What "does not cut it" in you opinion? Do you own the 1Plus2 ?
Got a short time with them at the Head-Fi meet up. Not long enough that I care to talk in detail about it. I just put them in my ear for a minute, tried a few tracks and instantly went back to my AS-2's and enjoyed it better. It's a matter of preference for most people but if you get a chance to listen to the ASG-2's definitely give them a try, no reason not to.
Didn't mean to be rude, just had a great experience listening to stuff this weekend at the Head-Fi meet up. That dynamic driver in there seems like a bit of overkill considering it can probably get great bass response while handling the mids as well (at least)
