Quote:Originally Posted by LECW Agreed with Rudi, as I tested the kobo 385 in Jaben and my personal Wagnus S. IMO
Thank you Eric
Until now for single ended portable amp Wagnus Epsilon S is the best in term of SQ

You are welcome Retrias

Quote:Originally Posted by BillsonChang007 I though it will be more fair to compare both iPad SQ directly out of their built in 3.5mm jack...
First I have compared SQ from iPad 4 vs iPad Air through hp out
As I share my impression...
Quote:Originally Posted by H20Fidelity I believe Rudi is hearing a difference, there could be many reasons, such as the circuitry, jitter and many other things I know nothing about. :P
While I'm here I'll show off my new toy which...
Quote:Originally Posted by lee730 Could have something to do with the USB implementation and the jitter impacting the sound?
Thank you for your explanation Lee
It is different between one idevice to other iDevice
Until know my best...
Quote:Originally Posted by BillsonChang007 +1! I though the M8 bypass both iPad's DAC and amp!
As long I know M8 or Theorem 720 and other iDevice dac , they bypass the internal dac from IDevices .
I am not so sure about the amp...
Quote:Originally Posted by Retrias Rudi , but doesn't the hifim8 bypass everything both amp and dac of the ipad. Wouldn't both the ipad 4 and ipad air both have the same exact sound? e.g the hifi m8 sound
No not the same SQ
Yesterday night I have time to do the comparison between my iPad 4 With My New iPad Air
Source : iPad 4 and iPad Air
Dac / Amp : Centrance HI Fi M8 With rsa version
Iem : Hippo Pro One monitoring iem with very good SQ and cheap
