Pictures of Your *Mid-Fi* Portable Rig ($200 - $600)

post #1 of 707
Thread Starter 

Greetings & Salutations!

 

Since there was a bit of a confusion as to the definition of "budget" in the Budget-Fi thread, the thread members there have decided to set a dollar value on the portable rigs posted in that thread. Unfortunately this left a void for Head-Fier's to post pictures of their gear that was above budget standards in the Budget-Fi thread but not worthy of the "Oooh &  Aaah... Look What I Got" $1K+ regular thread.

 

(Really not to take away from all the absolutely amazing gear in the regular thread, but seriously who carries that kind of gear around as a portable?)

 

Anyhow without further adieu, I present to you for your viewing pleasure the Pictures of Your *Mid-Fi* Portable Rig thread!

Just a couple of rules here as well:

 

1. All portable rigs posted here should have a price from $200 up to $600.

2. Pictures, Pictures, Pictures...

 

Enjoy the new Mid Tier thread!

And to start this thread off right...

I'll open with a couple of my Ultrasone HFI-780's (Removable Cable Mod & HM5 Pads), Colourfly C3, FiiO E17, DIY mini & HP Cable, fitting nicely in a Pelican 1010 Micro Case.

 

And another...

Thanks audiohurric4ne!

 

I have no problem with the C3 paired either with the FiiO E11 or E17, since the EQ on the C3 is functionally useless the E17 adds often needed bass or treble boost.

 

There are those in the C3 appreciation thread that enjoy the C&C BH amp paired with the C3 over the FiiO's. I have not heard the BH but to my old ears the E11 or E17 sound good and they give the C3 some desperately needed output power to drive headphones properly.

 

You would be best to ask in the C3 thread as I don't subscribe to it anymore and they would be up to date on all the C3 amplifier pairings.

this is exactly the pic i have been wanting to see. a paired-off group shot of the wonder-twins. I've got the E12, and love its sound with so far every headphone in my collection, and have tried it with almost all my daps. Ordered the X3 last night, and am looking forward (looking? is not technically correct, more like "hearing", but you understand the idea) to getting these two together.

 

I Like it!
