My incognito portable rig, pretty much the opposite of the awesome teched-out setups y'all have. Photos to show you how little you see.
I wanted a Cypher Labs-based setup, I was concerned with a. the cost, b. having it stolen since it looks valuable c. having someone on the subway tackle me when I take it out because it looks like something someone shouldn't have on the subway. So I do this instead:
It's an iPad Mini (that I already had)-->Apple Camera Connection-->ALO USB cable-->ALO Audio International DAC/amp. The iPad Mini's in a book-style case, and I shove the amp and cables into a felt sleeve I used to use for a small Kindle. I snipped a tiny hole to poke the lightning cable through. Other than 'phones there's only about an inch of cable showing. And I'm getting the signal out of the iPad, bypassing the internal DAC and amp. And it sorta looks like I'm holding an appointment book. Even with the case and sleeve it weighs around 10 oz less than a CLAS-based rig (using iPod Classic for comparison) even though it's iPad-driven. Fits easily in a messenger bag and under my arm. I don't usually use the LCD-2's outside the house, just around the house. Sounds great and gets plenty of power, had the cable made to take advantage of the mini-balanced output on the International.
