More the merrier! (Now I'm tempted to get my CIEM cable terminated to 4 pin XLR just so I can use them with the Raggy at the meet LOL) Call me crazy, but now I'm considering getting a Raggy / Yggy stack just for my CIEM.
Light Harmonic certainly has an eye for attractive / aesthetic hardware design (the Da Vinci DAC), but whether or not that will translate to UI design definitely remains to be seen. If LH pulls off extraordinary SQ, well designed hardware, & a decent smooth / attractive / functional UI, I'm pretty certain they'll have a real winner at hand, and possibly even the best overall DAP we've ever seen thus far.
I felt that the Hugo & Wagnus pairing was quite bad lol. :p I agree, a slimmer / re-designed version of the R10 would be fantastic!But then it would be the R10 / DX100 mkii & not a true successor of the R10 / DX100. iBasso is purported to be releasing a successor & not just an update / revision of the R10 / DX100. As such, it should fully expected that a successor to a current flagship will be improved in its SQ.Of course, if iBasso is inclined to release a R10 / DX100...
Agreed! Considering the size of Sony, resources available to them, & engineering / design prowess, Sony is definitely capable of creating a better DAP than what the current ZX1 is.Here's to hoping that the ZX2 (if it's even planned to be made) will be far more impressive! Out of all the current DAP makers, I'm betting that it's Sony & Light Harmonic that are the ones who will be able to produce a true AK240 competitor.
