    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    Quote:   LODs with built-in DACs... I can only imagine how expense the high-end cables will be!   Quote:   Thanks for the tip, I'll try double amping. But I must say, the adapter-DAC is surprisingly good for a $30 plastic bit.

    Headphones you regretted buying the most

    Bose Quiet Comfort 3   They're great for travelling (the ANC is superb), but the sound quality does not match the price.
