That is why Audioquest make this
That is why I let my own player go to a new home... Loved the SQ, but usability issues turned me off... Now, if Questyle sold their amplification IP under licence to a DAP manufacturer that knows how to make a good UI, but has not so great sound quality (looking at you Sony!) then you really could have a giant killer.
These latest comments definitely place these in the same ballpark as the Pioneers I have... Will have to wait for a UK stockist so that I can a/b for myself.
Welcome everyone Today is Head-Fi's 15th birthday, and - whilst I cannot offer you any cake, discount codes or otherwise, I can offer you greetings of the day!

Bum, that isn't good guess they wouldn't have hung around for long at bordering 40% discount! As to HD800 vs the M1, I only a/b'd for about 10 minutes, with the HD800S, and I can say that the Sennheiser treble was brighter / sharper (I would argue - brittle) sounding, the bass didn't hit as hard or as low, and the mids were a little recessed (both pairs powered by a Hugo)... That isn't to say that the HD800S sounded like dollar store in ears or anything so ludicrous, I...
Difference being, a dealer of numerous products can talk about anything that they carry, a manufacturer can only talk about their own products. To be back on track, looking forward to the Master 1 vs Utopia shoot out when it happens
yes...With some caveats though, which are beyond the scope of this thread (ie converting PCM to DSD), sounds a bit pie in the sky, but if you have good enough equipment it is easy to tell...This, annoyingly, coming from a previous non believer who was into NOS DACs...
FWIW not all of Tidal is lossless, could've been bad luck?
