Previously owned Pro-ject Head Box, Schiit Asgard...interestingly I found an old Marantz PM6010 OSE integrated sounded better than either!
Meridian Explorer was nice although that's a DAC/headphone amp of course.
I'm currently coveting the new Marantz HD-DAC1, the Oppo HA-1 and the Naim DAC V1.
||Currently just my Sony Z3 smartphone but it does sound better than my old iPhone 5 and MUCH better than my 4th generation iPod Nano!
I am using Tidal and Sony Walkman app with my Sony Z3 and I'm eyeing the Sony NWZ-ZX1 and/or the Sony MDR-1ADAC headphones.
||Nothing really fancy, Van Damme/Neutrik Phono/RCAs and Van Damme/Neutrik headphone extension and Van Damme Blue series speaker cables.
