I began a quest of having a good can setup a little over two years ago. Now - after various iterations that we all have been though - end up spending enough money that we should have bought something at or near our end game up front comes into play. For example just in Audeze, I have the LCD-Xf, LCD-3f, LCD-2f, EL-8 (Open and Titanium both with Cipher and std cables, and various DACs and Amps ranging from my first Massdrop CEtrnace DACport Slim through Deckard, Micro iDSD BL and even Pro iCan. Yes I am a hoarder - flat-out - and leave typically 4 sets of cans at a time on my desk with Woo Woo Tandem Stands - okay this is getting too long - so to the point. Even among my Focals, various standouts such as Fostex TH-900mk2s, Shure IEMs, some Sensh's and Ultrasones I love - I gotta say if I'm grabbing a single non-NC set for literally anything - i.e. connected to Roku Ultra Remote to directly from CX-A5100 or iPhone 7 and I want great sound with no fuss - the Sony Z7's are my favorite easily. With them I'm not messing with Amarra SQ+, often no Amp, External DAC or even fancy cables - they just work great - isolate great and can rumble with movies or sail along streaming MQA via Tidal HiFi. Honestly I think dollar for dollar they are the best thing that ever happened to a one or two pair owner with a non-crazy person budget. While I wouldn't recommend the cable for true portable - a small velcro org strap from one of your HDMI purchases or the like can help. When younger guys who work for me look at my conditioned power supply or linear DC upgrades, or even my AQ Cables with 72v noise suppression wizardry I give em their first dose of point of diminishing return speech and tell them to keep it simple. Tell em to skip a dedicated hi-res player for now and stack a dac/amp with their phone and a set of Z7's - its just dead simple quality. For $700-$800 bucks they can use the Z7s for portable, work, gaming and entertainment system - and the right portable dac/amp can link to their receiver, Roku, Blu-Ray, Phone or gaming rig.
