I think you and me are on the same page dude. You only have to visit my feedback page to see I'm moulting off all my extra gear. I've come to the point in this hobby where I really don't need all that gear and prefer a more capable home rig to fit all my needs and leaves me content in my happy place. By the way, I'm guessing you heard the mobile amp which won't been released for awhile yet and hasn't even been named yet and not the Liquid Carbon. The Carbon I reviewed for Headphone Guru and thought it was a freaking spectacular little transportable amp. I've pre ordered a unit and have been busy building a nice home rig around it consisting of a Chord 2Qute and some better cabling. I even went out and ordered myself a Ether to go with it, wonderful pairing by the way. As a happy aside, my WA6 sounds wonderful with the 2Qute. I'm really happy with the direction my new home rig is headed. Right now I'm trying to decide whether I should leave the Play It By Ear amp downstairs or maybe move it back into my bedroom. My thinking is WA6 and Carbon mated to the 2Qute as my main rig and the Play It By Ear and Vali hooked up to a Modi 2 as my mellow out in my bedroom rig. I'm on the fence concerning my CLAS-db DAC. One side says sell it and just use the Modi 2 while another side says keep it. I'm also contemplating maybe getting an Airport Express for my iPad Mini so as to wirelessly stream my tunes. I'm not crazy about a big honkin USB cable attached to my iPad Mini via camera connection kit.I heard a prototype of what I'm assuming was the LC with my TH900's at a meet like 2 years ago. I quite liked it and look forward to being able to try Romy's with other cans, although I'm not sure how much I care about that sort of thing while commuting anymore.
My gear usage has really stagnated lately -- pretty much just my SR009's, HD600's, and Signature Pros for outside. I'm not sure I ever see my interest in this hobby returning to what it once was, tbh. I still appreciate good sound and nerd out over the build quality and aesthetics of a lot of this ****, but the compulsion grab it all up just isn't there anymore. I think I'll always feel geeked to at least try ****, though, and definitely appreciate the potential for such to come with the aforementioned cohabitation.
Edit: ardgedee's embed vaguely reminds me of Space Ghost music. I like that.
