I currently have an 07 MicroStack from Headroom. I am also looking for a more portable system to take with me for trips and stuff. I've owned a bithead in the past and while it was great didn't offer quite the level of performance that I like. I'm considering a predator from Ray Samuels Audio. The USB DAC is nice because I want to have something to listen to my laptop with without having to move my desk and take apart my Micro Stack setup everytime I want to listen to my laptop someplace other than home. I've also considered the Tomohawk as well because, while the DAC would be nice I would probably mostly use this portable amp for listening to my iPod on long trips and such. Any comments or other suggestions for a good small portable amp for sub $500?
