As said in my post, I was an advocate of your standpoint for ages, there is a difference though, if SQ is your primary factor (rather than the convenience of a one device does all)
The only way to potentially guarantee new and improved sound quality is to introduce a new and improved format (MQS in the first instance for this thread) whilst staying with the same manufacturer... After a certain point the technical specifications mean nothing (137db SNR vs 138db SNR let's say, what real world difference is that?) Other than that, you've got differences in tonality / tuning, which may appeal to some, whereas the older style / unit / model / firmware...
Good question...How I see it, and you can track my history of phones if you like, had too many to list whilst replying to this on my phone, is that having a higher end DAP, the sound quality is more of an important to the designer, and you can hear that so so easily...It is the difference between, and find your own analogy as you wish, having cigars instead of cigarettes, a fine wine instead of cider, a 4k TV instead of a crt, much more of a window into the music...I have...
Haha, yeah,Agreed, I was changing phones more than I changed my underwear and was never fully happy...Now I have a ZX2 for music, and a Tab S / Yoga Pro 3 for movies
IIRC the bitrate comes up when changing the track, I know what you mean though that it is good to see
The fit is key on whether the Laylas are dark or not...For me, I have to push the base of the housing further into my ear (lessen the angle of how the housing sits in my ear) to bring the treble out - if not, whilst by no means dark, it does seem like some of the treble is sucked out of the sound......I'm getting some new tips to play with though, so - will see how that goes......Oh, and if you haven't worked it out, this is with the universal, rather than custom Laylas,...
I've still got some discmans, but yes, very hard to find fully working units these days, ironically the one that is still going strongest is the D5 I have, dating from iirc, December 83...
Trouble is, define best... Tonality, PRaT, resolution? There is no one device (at the moment) that covers all bases well...
I'm sure it'll beat my little setup for sure, but - it is a question of by how much...The demo room, about 10' square, speakers 2' from the wall, all soundproofed, so - not too bad I guess...
From the 2.5 or 3.5mm jack?
