Strictly speaking not my portable portable rig (for that I just use an iPhone with Etymotics MC3 headset). This rig is what I use in hotel rooms when I travel for work or holliday (over 100 nights a year). A sandwich with a SR71-B amp in the center, a 240GB hdd iPod Classic with 320kb aac music on one side and a 256GB ssd Whipmod with alac music on the other side feeding JH13 custom iems. All cables are the upcoming TWag V3 from Whiplash and this rig sounds awesome. To me it is as good as a HM801 or C4 with hires files.

I'm drooling for that storage - it's just what I need. Did you do the storage mods yourself?

I think it's finally time to post my portable setup here. I've been a long time HeadFi reader with postings smattered here and there and the inspiration and longing this community creates is amazing. I've seen some awesome rigs lately and here's mine.

 

 

1000 1000

WARNING: Images are DRIPPING with clarity - fullview highly recommended blink.gif

 

 Source: iPod Classic 6th Generation 160GB

Amp/Dac: Fiio e17

LOD: Fiio L9

Cans: Denon AH-D2000 (Shortened Cable, Reterminated with R/A Switchcraft 3.5mm, and sewn at the y-split to shorten the length and reduce tangles)

Portable Bluetooth Speaker: Braven 650 (supports APT-X codec) 

iPod LineOut Dongle: Creative BT-D5 (supports APT-X codec)

 

The Beyerdynamic DT 770's are my cousin's, not mine, but they wanted some photo action too ;)  He's running a iPod Classic 160gb, e11 and L9.

 

 

I carry the iPod and e17, along with a male-male 3.5mm and the bluetooth dongle in a handy leather carry case from an old Navman. Fit's in my pocket when i'm on the go. I'm supremely happy with all components of my rig. 

 

In case you aren't familiar with the Braven 650, it's like the Jawbone Jambox, only the sound quality between the two is like comparing LCD-2's with a pair of Beats. The Braven delivers incredible sound (for a portable bluetooth speaker). The sheer volume and clarity that come out of this thing seem to defy physics - it's a powerful little thing. 20 hours and charging functions for mobile devices too.  It's worth a look into guys and girls - we can't keep our lossless music all to ourselves ALL the time...

 

Just wanted to also thank CogsandGears for all help he's offered in the past, as well as others in various threads, who have steered me in the right direction :) This thread alone has been priceless.

 

Onwards with the gallery. More pictures to come.

No. The Classic I bought modded on eBay from China and Whiplash build my Whipmod with the ssd drive

Anybody know of any good cases for the Classic? The back plate scratches extremely easily.

It's a very easy mod once you get the damn thing open! biggrin.gif

post #89 of 14099
Nc8000, did you consider the JH16's? What was it about the JH13's that led you to them?
post #90 of 14099
Yes I did consider the JH16 (although it had barely come to the market at that time, I have had my JH13 for nearly 3 years now) and later tried the universal demo which confirmed to me that the JH16 has too prominent a bottom end for my taste (my reference is ER4-S).
