RE: Travel and Music

Interesting thread, as I'm putting together a higher-fidelity away from home system. When actually traveling I use a tablet and Bose QC20 noise cancelling earphones. This sounds pretty good, especially on an airplane where without the NC feature no bass will be heard except the roar of the engines.

But once at my destination I tend to want a higher quality sound, so I will take my Denon HEOS Link as a source, and use it's internal DAC, and a Stax SRS-005MK2 electrostatic earspeaker system. I already had the SRM-252II driver unit from a larger pair of Stax phones, and acquired a barely-used pair of SR-003MK2 in-ear phones. These are very small and portable compared to the full sized model but surprisingly have nearly the same sound quality.

The only problem I found is that when I go back to listening to speakers they sound muffled now!
