*Review to come*
Bought those as a portable go-to set (subway use, airplanes, travelling, etc.) and am so far very pleased. I previously used Etymotic IEM's (ER-4P and HF3) which are known for their clarity and...

Sounds great with the modded AKG Q701. Nearly as good with that as my main amp that originally cost $350. Impressive! In fact, the Vali added nothing to the sound of the modded Q701, which is...

Gear mentioned in this thread:
My temporary rig, until a few new toys come in. Loving the sound, and the Socket 1 LE is the best sounding portable DAC I have ever heard.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
IPC 7G 160GB + VentureCraft Go-Dap DD Socket 1 LE (w/ MUSES02) + Headstage Arrow 4G + Heir 8.A (All dual-locked together)
What case is that for your ipod?
Just a hard case from amazon I found. I love it, protects and looks very nice in the stack.
I've spoken to the company on the phone yesterday who have been really good about it,
They've ordered a new batch in, And are sending out a new one.
So should have it by the end of the week...
Beautiful photos. May I ask what kind of interconnect you are using? Is it 3.5mm to 3.5mm, or optical to optical (Toslink of some sort)?
Considering the Heir R1 is just an amp it is a 3,5 to 3.5 using the Headphone out of the AK100 to the analog in of the R1!
I just learned that, that's why I asked...
There are a few portable amps that input with optical (iQube v3)
As my learned chums have just confirmed, yes it is the Heir audio Magnus 1-ic 3.5 to 3.5 interconnect and yes the port closest to the volume on the AK100 is an optical in.
I have two portable DACs/Amps that do it with the Fiio E17 (dont rate at all) and the fabulous MyST 1966 PortaDAC.
