post #856 of 862

my like-new re262 is up for sale

 

time to go to a new loving home, i have gathered too many iems.

Would Fiio X5 be an adequate source for the 262 or should I go for something more neutral like DX90? Appreciate any other feedback on source matching and amping as well.

this.

 

 

re262 has kinda rolled-off highs , and they need a decent/good amp to really shine.

without amp , they  are so-so

 

cheers

I take it that DX90 would be the best bet to keep the highs extended as possible? Any balanced sources that would have enough driving power for them without coloring the phones too much? I got an HM-700 but I don't think it'll be strong enough power-wise although I don't find it's signature all that bad, most noticeable is more defined sub bass and better soundstage depth.

 

I don't actually have the 262 yet but it's on the way! Looking forward to those mids :)

The only other source I have is an ipod classic and the only amp I have is Cayin C5, which will most likely be too smooth for the 262.

the dx90 has very good highs and is spacious without being too mids-in-your-face , so it coplements the 262 perfectly

 

plus it has a built-in amp to drive the 262

even better would be to get the re600 , for 140$ used are quite a bargain and they are 262 on steroids

262 are good , 600 are much better

 

cheers

Thanks for the tip I'll look more into the DX90 :)

 

I have the 600 actually lol. I love the bass and the soundstage has a nice 3D presentation but it is a touch on the dry side and the mids can get a bit shouty depending on the song. It works well with pretty much every genre though.

 

I just got excited and wanted to drown in the best mids ever, plus if I didn't grab it I might not ever get to hear it. Hoping it'll go great with my ambient collection
