I have been very pleased with my current portable rig - an Ipod Classic 160GB, Ray Samuels SR-71B or Pico Slim and Cypher Labs Algorhythm Solo using UM Miracle earphones. However, it has been some time since I put this rig together and I would appreciate any recommendations for upgrading.
For example, are any of the current DAPs now at a level that would match my rig with the convenience of only one piece of equipment rather than a brick? Maybe the Astell although opinions still seem mixed. In my main two channel system I have a Baetis Audio server using JRiver so have a large number of files ripped to FLAC lossless if this would influence in which direction to go.
