I had clas -db and sr71b. Not impressive at all. Both clas and sr71 are over priced imo.

If you can avoid portable route then just get full size.

I really don't like the look of chord hugo but might consider that since there is choice.

What did you find lacking?

Assuming I can't avoid it, is there a better portable option?*EDIT* my fault... chord Hugo ha.

Well I don't really like the dark sounding or amp with the added flavour.
Sr71b had the warm sound and nothing special. Two sr71b i had the hissing when the volume is very high (with the high gain) altho you can manually fix this by turning left and right several times but was just annoying.

Clas -db is a good dac,it extends the trebles,really beautiful sparkling trebles I experienced with jazz and female vocale but that's about it.

I was not impressed with the soundstage on clas.

When I compare my old burson 160ds vs sr71b+clas, its a no match. Burson out performs.

Imo clas or sr71b aren't that aggressive like burson amps.

If you throw in the price factor,

Sr71b/alomk3+,clas -db plus interconnects $1300

You can get lot of better full size at that price imo.

Just my experience. Ymmv

The Oppo HA-1 works well with the HD80. It sounds  fantastic actually. I am also using the Nordost Heimdall 11 cable balanced with the HA-1.  I think the soundstage is very wide and the music is jsut flowing. the base is defined as well as the terrific mid-range.
