1)  Open the case
2)  Connect headphone cable to the LCD-2's mini-XLRs
3)  Connect the 24VDC LiPo battery and attach alarm/monitor
4)  Connect interconnect cable to Sony PCM-M10
5)  Turn on the TBI Audio Millenia MG3 and listen to music!  




HPRC 2400F case, with Touch shown for scale.

Wow, thank you!

 

But wait 'til I replace the Sony PCM-M10 with the just-released (in China and Japan) Sony PCM-D100...

 

 

 

 

This puppy does gap-less playback (and recording!) of WAV, FLAC, MP3 and several other formats, at resolutions up to 192 kHz/24-bit, including DSD formats, with native support for SDXC cards.  And just look at the build quality. 

 

In addition to a fairly weak headphone amp, designed only for monitoring while recording in the field, It has both digital and analog Line In and Line Out jacks that are combination 3.5mm TRS (analog) and Mini-TOSLINK.   With 25-hours of play time on AA batteries, this thing will be a great DAP, but with none of the extra bells and whistles, such as playlists, shuffle, search by album, by artist, by song, etc.  It's strictly playback by folder selection.

 

Take it away for roughly $980 US when it starts shipping later this year.   That's a lot of bang for the buck compared to our current, problem-prone "audiophile" DAP offerings that cost the same or more.  

 

Best of all, if it's anything like its little brother that I'm using currently, the PCM-M10, it will work perfectly, right out of the box and will remain at firmware version 1.0.0, forever...

Ultra Portable setup

Source: Mod X3 with balance phone out

IEM: ASG-2

 

Upgrade Path: X5 in 2014

 

The form factor and build of the X3 are designed to be ultra portable, I can put it in my jeans back pocket.. The X3 feels really sturdy... The warm and bassy sounds with this setup blocks out the outside noise very well... I am also using comply tips which enhance the sound isolation (could be at the expense of some treble loss...).. Most frequently used setup

 

what mods did you perform?

Ohh. UERM and AK100. Not a great match. You need an amp. Trust me. As a owner of AK100 and UERM, I can assure you that your treble with get so much better, even if you add a budget amp. 22ohm takes about 10db of treble away from UERM.

Why? I love my AK100. No way that new sony is going to be better purely in terms of SQ(but you do need to mod your AK100 if you are using iems)
