What does your nickname means?


Minimalism can sometimes be a virtue.

 

Not too many people realize how incredible the JH-16's can sound right out of an unamped portable source.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if the most highly praised universal IEM's like the SM3's right out of (any $$$ source + any $$$ amp) will be capable of surpassing a simple setup like the JH-16's with the Clip+.

 

On top of that, the 16's full potential isn't even close to being reached with the Clip+.  This is my dilemma at the moment because I'm not sure what my next DAC/amp upgrade should be.

 

My nick? I rather keep it a mystery.

i also agree with what you're saying, no offense to the people that have done it, but i dont understand say buying an imod, and a 3-400 dollar amp and then some 250-350 dollar headphones. for the same amount of money you could get a clip and a set of 13's or 16's and have higher quality audio :/

 

but once the 3a is out, the best setup will be ipod classic + algorithm solo + 3A, and as far as im concerned there isnt even a desktop rig that could touch that, and its portable! the best part for me is that ill be able to take it to work :D

If I'm out and walking around a lot, I like to use my iPod touch + FiiO E1 + IE8's. Love the remote when I walk around so I don't need to mess with my iPod.

 

If I'm not moving around much and can sit down at a library or something, I like to use my iPod Touch + Headstage Arrow + IE8.

Please excuse my ignorance, what is an algorithm solo? I googled it but nothing about hifi or portable hifi came up. I am seriously considering the 3A/16 combo for my classic so this interests me!

So do I, I also want to listen to this combo. AlgoRhythm Solo => JH-3A, BEAST.

On the day that I am really mobile, with lots of outdoor interviews, the JH16/iPod Nano combo is my favorite rig.
