I'll definitely be bringing them.
This is what I'm thinking of bringing so I don't have to keep on switching out gear. Most of my my gear is DIY, with the exception of the LCD2s.
I have a pair of Thunderpants, which I'm not sure if I'm bringing yet. And the other pair of DIY headphones are my Magnum v4s with Ohrenholz cups, which I will be bringing.
The 2.5 rigs that I'm thinking of bringing...
1) iPad2 into a camera connection kit into a PupDAC (prototype) going into an O2 and then either LCD2s or Magnum v4s.
2) MacBook Pro into Gamma 2 DAC then simultaneously into "The Wire" amp and Cavalli Compact Tube Hybrid amp into either the LCDs or Magnum v4s.
For those that don't know...
The Wire is an amp based on the premise of a wire with gain. It is similar to the Objective 2 in this way.
The PupDAC is in my mind one of the best portable DACs that can be built for the money. Like the Gamma-2, it can supply D/A conversion to two amps at once.
The Cavalli Compact Tube Hybrid Amp and Gamma-2 DAC have been around for several years and are both quite popular in the DIY section of this forum. The CTH is a hybrid - tube and solid state - that takes 12AU7 or 6DJ8 type tubes. It packs a nice punch for its size. The Gamma-2 is a very small and versatile DAC that is considered to be high end in its design.
