I'm due to change the way I currently work, in the sense I will no longer be working out of the same office everyday but instead will be going to temporary offices so all my gear will have to go with me.
I currently use a (desktop) external DAC with a Headamp Gilmore Lite amp with my AKG271s so I want to replace these with portable versions.
I've decided (not purchased yet) to go with Senns momentums on ears.
Criteria are as follows:
- All gear must be portable.
- Battery life is redundant. All gear is to be used on charge from USB (laptop)
- Source is a Samsung I9100 Galaxy SII (needs to be on charge during use)
- Need to be able to received phone calls throughout the setup (hence not having laptop as source)
I've been out of the loop for a while, certainly since considering using a phone as a source was crazy.
Can I get a DAC output from the phone via the headphone jack (since I need the micro USB for charge)?
I'm researching as we speak but any suggestions are very welcome.
