What would your recommendation be for a good portable (without an amp)? We both seem to feel the same way about the dt250-80s and I see in your profile that you have similar musical tastes. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks,
Electronics guys... we have our plusses and minuses. With advent of digital everything, we're being phased out

I haven't found any contemporary portable CDP that adequately powers a headphone by itself. So I've simply resigned myself to using a portable amp with my portable CDP (I use a Sony D-FJ61 CDP) and with it I use a Meier Audio Porta-Corda. I found I wasn't happy with a single 9v supply for the Porta Corda so I use two 9v batts in series for 18v supply. I run line out from the Sony into the Porta Corda and am fairly well pleased with the result. It even adequately drives my AKG-K501s.
