Looking more at the spec's, this seems to have it all for a portable- up to 24/192 via USB, class A, no op-amps, ACSS with changeable filters. Is there any portable that has this feature set?
 
It is big though- it's based on the DI chassis which is roughly 4 times the E17 in size. I'll see how it attaches (velcro) to my laptop (which is also huge at 17").

This says :
 
[size=x-small]The NFB-16 applies the newest  high-end dual WM8741 and  USB asynchronous transmit chip TE8802 which can support up to 24Bit/192KHz input (AES and Coaxial inputs support up to 192KHz [/size]
 
 
Am I missing something here.

So the portable unit, by itself, is $148 (promo pricing) and the optional PSU, which would stay at home, is another $75.  Although not super portable (as in thin), this may be the best bang for the buck in a transportable DAC/Amp.
