    If I was to double amp the iPod shuffle, what volume should I set the shuffle to?
    Can someone suggest a place where one can buy some stacking bands, good ones, preferably through ebay.

    Yes @boblauer

    Any suggestion for amp that uses "knob" to vary output volume because I hate using volume buttons on my Aune m1s......well I just need an amp that doesn't colour the sound of my Aune m1s when I pair them up?

    You should max the volume on your first source as a general rule of thumb.

    I've been a bad boy of late and have also been lazy posting "Budget" rigs in the portable audio thread where the ones with esoteric rigs post! I used to tell guys posting in there that we had a budget <$200 thread and a Mid-Fi >$200 to <$600 thread as well, flog me now as I've really went crazy over the last year playing with budget gear and we could really have a <$100 thread or even an ultra bugie thread under <$50:scream: Just crazy what you can get even under fifty bones that sound decent (decent is in no way associated with "Audiophile) but listenable especially while out and about doing anything other than kicking back in your easy chair:wink:

    Let's post a few Chi-Fi delights:

    Which combination do you like the most?
  12. Mellowship
    The Benjie S5 is such a competent player for the price... And it scales so well with whatever headgear you throw at it... I've been using mine with a slightly modded Sennheiser HD407 that I got for 9 Euros. A great combination for under 50 bucks. Unfortunately I don't have a pic here. I will post some later.
  13. Mellowship
    For now, the Benjie S5 and the Einsear T2.

    @Mellowship is correct on the S5 however the T6 is so close in SS and power they are like pick your favorite look for me:wink: (I am a little partial to the S5 in the dark gray however) Either or scale nicely with a plethora of iem's and some efficient cans.

    Under $50 I would have to go with the T6/FBUANG F910 or the S5/Carbon ZST's, >$50 to <$100 opens a whole new lot with some more expensive iem's in the mix:thumbsup:

    I'll also add if you like the analog sound with some background ambience the Walnut/MEMT X5 sounds incredible to my old ears!

    Let me not leave this one out as it's still probably my favorite Chi-Fi rig, absolutely and still my favorite sub $75 rig:grin:

    Here you go! Benjie S5 and Senn HD407, with some pads I had lying around. Great combo, truly magical for 40 Eur or so.
