Currently building a portable rig from scratch. I currently mainly rely on IEMs
Many sources say that the CL 720 produces a lot of hiss and is therefore not very good for IEM centric use. How bad is it? How black is the backdrop?
- I know there won't be a problem with the ER4s i currently use, but for future proofing and potential new purchases (UERM, SD2, ATH R70x, etc.), I am not sure how the hiss will affect the versatility of the rig.
- How complicated is it to setup / does it perform (as a desktop setup)?
The final rig would then probably look like this:
iPod Classic 160GB -> CL 720 DAP (-> another AMP w/ lower noise floor (for IEMs) ->(currently) ER4s
Although it would be very long lasting and future proof, it would be very expensive + very bulky (frequent flyer/on the go).
Currently weighing it against the Mini M8 (lighter)or even the HP-P1 as a cheaper option.
Do you guys have some experiences in this direction?
