most definitly. at one point i got out of the hobby. then got back in and it was worse than before....toxic cables,dacs,daps,amps,interconnectors,adapters,multiple iem's, its fun, just cost alot of money.

yeah, this is why i keep myself away from headphone and only focus on iem, because i know if i get involved in headphone as well, i might need to eat bread everyday.. hahahaha

Yes redwine had the cable, refer to Q&A of the RwAK120-B it mentioned there, if you want the picture click the link http://www.head-fi.org/t/663188/the-astell-kern-ak120/4275

100usd

Hey, 90 pound for the interlink from Toxic cable shipping included, worth it for the superior quality.

there's people paired it up with sr-71b, how about alo audio rx mk3? how does the sound different to rsa combination? anyone came across this?

post #1134 of 1183
I asked ALO about the pairing with sensitive IEM and their mk3, and they confirmed they'd be some hiss. I assume an honest answered; they redirected me to some of their other products.

i see, thanks for the response, tomorrow going to be a busy day for me, gonna send my ak120 to US for modification and go to an audio shop to get rsa sr-71b and going back to my homecountry at midnight

Could always make your own cable... TRRS jacks are available...

Main problem is finding a right angled TRRS.

Right angle still easy to get but to get a metal 1.. I think not exist in the market yet. Let see what I get from Frank.

That's how I feel. Decided to order a pair of Westone ES5 CIEMs to replace my W4R and ATH-CK100PRO instead of converting my system to a balanced one. I'd like to wait for a non-proprietary balanced input/output iem amp. I'll move the BTG-Audio midnight cable from my W4R to the customs when they arrive in 3 weeks and live in bliss for awhile~

Do you guy think worth to mod to change the RSA to Lemo 4pin connector? The outlook for sure better not sure if sound quality. Of course ignore the warranty issue.
