We will continue to adapt as Tidal slow cooks us...    
Hi all,   Here's a short review of the LT1028ACN8 as a buffer in the iBasso PB2:   I've done a lot of A/B testing with the iBasso PB2 this morning, to compare the LT1028ACN8 as buffers vs. dummy buffers and the popular HA5002.   The LT1028ACN8 is absolutely the the "cleanest sounding" buffer op-amp I've ever used in the iBasso PB2 - noticeably better than the HA5002 for resolution and transparency, but offering less advantage in terms of current gain.   For...
Keep in mind that the HA-2 is still being improved.Beta testers are on the 2nd prototype now and a third is forthcoming. I'm not going to hold back in saying that I'm very impressed with OPPO's ability to rapidly respond to feedback, not just with firmware changes, but also with hardware improvements. And their engineers aren't afraid to dig deep and debate suggestions, sometimes educating us rather than just blindly seeking a consensus of opinion.The result is that HA-2...
 They are still on sale...       http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00001P4ZH Tyll Hertsens' comments in this Dec. 11 interview pushed me over the edge:          http://youtu.be/qEqDLyxqsuk?t=40m37s     (at the 40 min. 37 sec. mark)  That and the price history from http://camelcamelcamel.com/Koss-PortaPro-Headphones-with-Case/product/B00001P4ZH  At $25, these make great gift items for introducing friends and family to something that's a lot better than ear buds.   Yes,...
 From what I'm hearing about the H10, it definitely qualifies as not being a waste of money.  I consider lesser purchases, at or below the likes of the JDS Labs O2 or ODAC, to be representative of where you will later find your money to have been wasted.

 Thank you!  That's a great tip! Mike
 Yes!
 Thanks for your detailed report Luke! The line I've quoted baffles me though, because when I borrowed a friend's Schiit Lyr for 30 days, even buying and rolling tubes, including Mullard NOS, that I eventually gave to my friend, I didn't like the Lyr's "fuzziness."  Nothing I tried could overcome the lack of resolution.   When I reported my findings here at Head-Fi, Jason Stoddard even paid for shipping both ways so that he could test my friend's Lyr, only to declare that...
