e12 cost $130 ish.  The Pioneer sx650 will just trounce it for half the money. Just don't get me started. ;)

Why sir, the whole long forgotten point of this entire site is just that, to get people started.

 

30ish bucks will get you a wicked tripath based amp if you recable the phones to use it:D

For the $ folks, not absolute. ;-)

Thanks for the suggestions folks, but I said X3 because I would use that for a portable DAP. I already have a big vintage receiver at home to drive the dogs at home. It'd be kinda difficult to take a Asgard 2 with me to school tongue.gif

I picked up a Pico Power but not sure I'm keeping it... Do any of you electrical/DIYguys know how many watts per channel the pico power does into the Mad Dog? Does anyone else have and like the combo?

 

I'm toying with getting (or keeping!) either a more spendy portable amp for the 3.2 at home and the Alpha Dog at the office or getting a cheaper amp for either place. I was suprisingly impressed with the O2 for the Mad Dog but the potential capacity for better is always out there... 

 

If you had to split $400 between home and office, what would you choose? One spendy portable? Or something like an O2 for home (where I listen less) and an Asgard for the office? Etc...

At this point, I expect people are wondering why a Curad box is the "Recent Image In This Thread" :D

 

So, is the idea to put it in between the drivers, to keep the pads separated ?

For those who are subscribed to the Alpha Dog thread as well, a Curad box seems comparatively normal.

But but but, does the pioneer come with rubber bands to attach your DAP??
post #1586 of 2903

Nope, that would take a pretty big rubber band.... and a big 12 volt battery and a power inverter.

I can confirm now that the CEntrance HIFI-M8 is a nice pairing with the MD's.  The HIFI-M8 must dump most of a watt into the things.  They respond very well.  As a quick aside to those that have the HD650 - the HIFI-M8 is pretty magical with the HD650.

This reminds me of when TusChan made a portable Stax rig...
