Why is that

Custom is the way to go bro.
post #1459 of 1646
I have custom mini to mini cables from forza audio out of necessity but I have perfectly fine stock USB cables and some budget belkin USB cables which have worked fine for 10 years. I am all for gratuitous spending but I have a personal line. If others want to extend it to interconnects and power cables that is also fine. Personal choice.

Toxic Cables Silver Poison Westone W4R Cable

Toxic Cables Silver Poison USB to LOD

Toxic Cables Silver Poison Mini to Mini 

Cypher Labs Algorhythm SOLO (Original)

Ibasso P4 Warbler 

RSA SR71-B hiding in the felt bag in the corner

 

between the ibasso p4 warbler and the sr71-b with the CLAS and the toxic Cables sound phenomenal. Personally i like the wolfson sound vs the AKM thats just me .

AKM is simular to what the hpp1 has in it, obviously not the same dac chip, the original CLAS dac chip is a high end Wolfson Dac chip.  wolfson vs akm dac chips alot of people say the wolfson is a more aggressive sound. the newer CLAS has options that obviously the older versions dont have, but if you are using single ended it still sound exceptional.

honestly ive tried ALOT of amps and the Ibasso P4 Warbler is a Amazing amp the power output, the ability to change opamps and buffers, i also have the RSA SR71-B so between the ibasso and blackbird both sound exceptional with the CLAS.

Yea the clas makes anything sound better

Hello. Without using a multi-meter Is there any way to tell if I got the new fixed Solo -R? Mine came with 2 short 30 pin to USB cables and has a much lower output than my original CLAS (Tactical Edition). As for the sound, this is very disappointing. Compared to the original CLAS, my Solo R sounds thin and "digital". I don"t know if its still burning in, but I am quite disappointed. My original CLAS is fuller and more dynamic. Vocals are warm and details are fantastic. This one sounds so recessed that I actually prefer the hp out of my ipod touch 4th.

BTW - my setup consists of an ALO Continental V3 Hifiman HE500 playing FLAC and ALAC through a 32gb ipod tough 4th gen.

Ask David. Owner of cypher labs.Anything bought now should be the new revised version.
post #1469 of 1646
Could just be the A and Bing between the original wolfson chip vs the akm chip both are going to have their negatives and positives.

Do the new -R CLAS use the AKM chip?  It doesn't sound as aggressive to me as the Fostex HP-P1 that uses an AKM chipset.  The CLAS -R sounds warmer and fuller but not as aggressive or quite as dynamic.  Two different flavors.
