Thing is my home rig is a speaker setup, NAD M51 Dac > Fostex studio monitors with dual Fostex subs for stereo bass. Much better than using headphones ;)

 

So the only thing I'm really interested in is portable hifi at the moment as I'm happy with my home speaker rig.

 

So I went nuts and bought all the JVC's, but they are at good prices at the moment, I got the FX650 for $114, the FX750 for $140 and the FX850 $249. Next I will probably buy both the CKR10 and CKR9 :D 

 

Before I was interested in IE800 and EX1000, but kinda lost interest in them, the JVC and AT seem like they will have much more interesting sound, even if they are technically inferior, they may sound more fun to listen to, at least that's what I'm going for lol.

 

I have a DX90 and ZX1, two very different sounding sources makes for many good pairings.

Interesting approach. All good choices. I must say that listening on the go is very different from listening at the office or at home- the latter probably calls for a more refined sound (eg. W60), whereas the former needs a bit more flavour! I do all my listening at the office or at home, so hence my choices :)

 

If you already have a speaker amp/dac, btw, you'll save a lot of cash on that end when you get a Hifiman HE6. They run beautifully out of speaker setups!

So cool - I also rock Fostex`s own speakers in my home system: I first had the GX250s, but then side-graded to the G1300s with the cw200 sub woofer.  Truly awesome sound. . . .

Why don`t you get the CKR9 LTD ?  It is supposed to be a perfect blending of the CKR9 and CKR10 sound signatures . . .
