Only one - Ether C, best closed headphone I've heard (and in the top 10 or so of the best headphone period that I've heard), easy(ish) to drive, mmmmm, carbon fiber; ahhhhhh....  Oh, did I mention comfy?  In fact, I'll mention it twice - comfy!   Only 2 - tougher question.  Ether C remains.  Probably the Senn HD650, comfy, lush, non fatiguing, reasonably priced, rebuildable, moddable.  Maybe, instead of the HD650, a pair of custom iems along the lines of the UERR - as...
Just a quick cross post from the QP1R thread:   Any way to get 24/192 files into the Dac-19 via the optical out of the QP1R? It was never an issue as I didn't have any 192 files, but now I have a couple or 3 or 4 albums in 24/192. I can always transcode them to 24/96. If anyone has a better way… oh, mine has the original USB32.   Are the Xmos and Amanaro USB only?
Listening to mine this morning with the Ether C. I finally got a 200gb sandisk card loaded up with familiar music. I had been using a couple of cards full of music the previous owner graciously included. The QP1R is really impressive. Highly detailed sound quality. It tilts to bright just a bit to my ears, but not objectionably so. It also makes a killer transport into my Dac-19 via optical. I think there are a couple of Dac-19 owners participating in this thread: Any...
I have an aluminum Kensington USB 3 reader - it gets HOT!
I'm someone who flipped a lot of mid-fi gear and spent a bunch of extra money. Dan gives sound advice. Flipping gear is kind of fun though.
Regarding the MrSpeakers EtherStats - As there has been a fair amount of comment and activity, I offer a link to an impressions thread.  Just a brief account of my experience with a prototype that per Dan is "quite a bit further along than the ones I had at CanJam."   Quick spoiler - I was pretty much blown away, and despite my fanboy tendencies, blown away just doesn't happen to me all that often any more.  Surprised, excited, new toy syndrome sure, but blown away, not...
Questyle case is indeed excellent.
I thought I'd start this thread, as there was a bunch of activity regarding these headphones on the recent CanJam Impressions thread.  Prototypes will continue to appear at upcoming meets and shows, so it seems appropriate to start a thread for impressions - knowing full well that these are a work in progress, and impressions will vary and change across multiple versions of the headphones.     I was in San Diego last week.  I had a brief opportunity to sneak away from...
Just a note - downloaded and installed v1.0.5 on my 2011 MacBook Air with no issues. I formatted the blank card on the QP1R first. Booted up with new firmware. Completely painless.
I just demo'd mine a little bit.  It is lovely, very solid, wheel feels cheap.  UI doesn't completely stink.  Actually not that bad.  Kind of iPod classic flashback, with a cheap feeling wheel.  It works fine though.  Quick sound impression - it sounds good, quite detailed, seems to drive the Ether C well, but it will take a while for me to decide for sure.  It makes a really nice transport out of the optical output into my desktop dac as well.  The Questyle case is really...
