Would be hard to say I love them after only a few days of use, but I definitely like them. Sound quality and the portability factor compared to ATH-ESW9 got me thinking about getting rid of ESW9.

 

For now I am keeping both and will be thinking about getting a Fiio E7 to see how a portable amp will work with my rig.

I've stuck my modified iBasso T4 with 15dB bass boost to my Cowon V5 (since that player has no EQ and I need all the bass I can get for watching videos), but I don't really use that player either. After those amps the next best one is the FiiO E5, in my opinion... go figure how bad the others are. ;)


Wanna send me the rest of them then? :p

This is My Rig.

Japan's high speed train, the Shinkansen has been taken.

The amplifier names Trapezium.Made by Tokyou university students.

This is "discrete amp"

White part is the amplifier parts. Are interchangeable.

Most important question: How does this baby sound? What opamp is that? By the way, a very nice rig you have there :)

Whoa, the real estate on that PCB was well used. What's with the red LEDs?

Because they probably already have the IEM/Phone/Amp that they want to stick with for a while. I didn't start getting higher end interconnects until I got the headphones/amp that I wanted. Of course they have the money to spend and why not?

Same could be said about Mac computers (not 500 percent though(?)) but people still buy those don't they? But it's only like 13 bucks for the plug anyway.

Hi RAFA & dfkt

 

Trapezium sound is Very Gooood.Change the sound amplifier to replace parts.

α is standard set.β is option parts.

 

α sound...Very Clear treble. It features Gentle-listening music.

I like the growth of high-frequency

 

β sound...S/N ratio is Very high.sound stage ? It is wide !  red parts not LED.

 

Trapezium is the best in my own amp.

I can not explain poor English so well.

Yea man. Total cost if you include all the wire and techflex I got is still only $50 and I have a lot left over. That is only 1/4 of the cost of my IEM used. I made it for looks mostly.

nothing too fancy here, but my ears are enjoying what they're hearing nonetheless :)

 

I usually use my Fiio E7 as a USB DAC connected to my laptop, but it's found use as part of my (trans)portable rig to drive my K702's when I'm wandering around the house:

however my current preferred portable rig is still my simple iphone+TF10 setup:

reference voltage. in this case 2.5v forward voltage (that is the usual voltage ref produced by a red LED, other colours have a different reference voltage), this clean and known reference is then used 'looked at', sometimes gain is added to this known level, to regulate the voltage for supplying other components on the PCB.

nice looking discrete amp, or should I say AD??  looks similar to the burson and audGD discrete opamps

Ahh, that's cool, thought you bought it.

(Although I still think viablue is overkill in an interconnect, kinda diminishes the grandeur of the iem jack)

... and yes, my musical tastes are vastly different from those of people my age. I already fell in love with old songs ever since I was a kid.

My new toy, iphone 3g 16gig. A friend gave it to me! Wow, I really like the way it sounds.
