Hey all! I'm a long time lurker, but its my 1st time posting...so please be gentle with me! :)
Been meaning to ask you for opinions for an upgrade, or a switch in sounds...preferably a lateral upgrade rather than vertical. It can be amps or a new pair of IEMs altogether...i've even thought about getting Altoid cMoys lately...
Just to give you a rough idea of what i like:
I listen to plenty of movie ost + anime OST + game OST music. Most of my tracks are composed by Kajiura Yuki, Yoko Kanno, Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimamura, Joe Hisaishi, Hans Zimmer etc.
I also listen to these:
JRock bands: FLiP, SCANDAL;
Folk/Celtic: Akiko Shikata, Enya, KOKIA;
Instrumentals: Yoshida Brothers, Yann Tiersen;
Epic/Movie Trailer music: E.S. Posthumus, Immediate Music
Nu Metal: Linkin Park
Electronica: Daft Punk/TRON OST
Here's my gear so far:
iPhone4 16GB > Livecable's 22AWG Silver Plated Copper LOD > Fiio E5 > RE-0
I currently like the extreme detailing of the RE-0 but would like to add to it a bit more impact on the bass. That being said, I'm no basshead and would not be attracted to stuff like MONSTER...I like something to be able to play a good repertoire of my music with good details, soundstage and clarity with just enough bass as the cherry on top.
Granted, the RE-0 is awesome so far since much of my music is criss-crossing the genre lines; the composers i listen to just LOVE to blend genres like there's no tomorrow. I need equipment that is like a good knife cutting through a multi-layered cake. I want to see all the layers without deforming them while slicing through.
So...Ladies n Gents. Any ideas?
