I commute daily by train and bus and proud to say, I carry a stack. Its not visible as I carry a messenger bag daily for my paperwork and files. You're right, life is too short to think about what other people would think. You paid for your gear. Not the OTHERS!

I carried one for a while, but I want something I can put in a pocket. It's easier to access the player that way, especially since I wear a backpack most of the time.

I don't alway carry a thick stack. Today, I just had the iphone and iems. It depends on my morning mood. When I have the thick stack in my messenger bag, access is also easy. Again, its all good. Single or multiple stack, all good.

Nah we are not talking about 6", not even 2", because it doesn't have to be that thick to be sounding excellent if you got it right.

Now making yourself look like a complete idiot in public is nothing compared to making yourself look like a terrorist with a bomb, and you might get shot by a security force when told to lay down the "weapon" but you can't hear.
Ha ha to the last comment. As for looking an idiot in public. I have a news flash. No one is looking! No one could give a rats flash about your "rig". That's not meant as an unpleasant comment BTW. It's just that as a 57 yr old it has been both disappointing and liberating to realise that you don't have to be concerned what strangers think about you.
As to carrying something around that would not look out of place in a research facility. No thanks. Just my iPhone and super slim Arrow for me. What other members choose to carry around is entirely their choice as what I say above equally applies to me! smily_headphones1.gif

I work in a high security area ( police building) and have been stopped about 8 times by the security and police officer what I have in my hand, they weren't scary more curious, I'm using a AK100 and a X02 amp with my ASG-2

Well, let's be honest, our amps do look a bit like concealed explosives. wink.gif

Especially when you're pressing buttons frantically rushing to a certain song! tongue_smile.gif 

 

Imagine someone assuming it's a bomb... they snatch you're rig and smash it to pieces... then they ask questions... frown.gif

Just make sure you hear when they ask you "Don't move".

In that case they may snatch only after you are shot if you don't respond to " Put that thingy down and your both hands behind your head".

Haha, just stare at them blankly and get teary of the death of your rig. I would. frown.gif

I find the AK120 really does not need one. Otherwise go to the AK120 thread, there are many recommendations (RSA 71A, Pico Slim, Pico Power, Tralucent T1, etc.)

New Toy arrived today......AK120 bigsmile_face.gif

 

 

 

AK120 currently with my Tzar 350 - Now this is a nice sound :-) I really cant believe how much of a step up the AK120 is from the AK100.
