So my home rig is in my signature. I love it. But, the reality is I can almost never really use it since the LCD-3 might as well be a small speaker and the other people in the room don't care for what I want to listen to ;)
So first question... is something portable, cost no object, competitive with my home rig?
If yes or at least approaching yes... help me out. The headphone has to be an (c)iem so I can easily go one ear if needed. Perfect world I would like to have 1 rig that does it all. All being usable on the commute, in my office and at home be able to use the PC as the digital transport and feed either the (c)iem or the Dynaudio while being charged.
I believe I would like to have a means to boost bass either through EQ in the DAP or a switch/dial on the amp for when I'm on the transit. Needs to be dead quiet with sensitive iems.
My problem is despite being around here for a decade... I've never spent any time in the portable market so I'm totally lost.
So commute, office, home... (c)iem, powered monitor... pc, dap... so lost.
I had originally thought about the CM8 with an iPod Classic, then came across the AK120, iPod/Cypher/ALO combo? Keep the home rig swapping the LCD-3 for an iem, keep the Zune for the road/office and call it a day?
I was going to get a JH13fp or JH16fp but word is the Siren series may have lower models so... holding pattern. So what do I do?
