CK4 can easily find place in your jeans, size is portable and weight is good
Westones are super phones for top players, my old rig with Teclast T51 (cap modded) + Westone 3 was superb, but T51 died and i sold my W3. Now i've got some another perfect sound with another top player and another super Westones. lol
Glad you're enjoying your new 3MUx Berkovajazz!
I spent three hours with CK4 last night learning the signature, a wonderful sound.
Detailing is surely superior to anything I've heard, I have music tracks I've known for over a year, songs I thought I knew every detail and micro detail, but last night with CK4 I hear more! More detail and depth, samples I never knew where there with other players. It's not only about hearing deeper, also how gracefully CK4 positions and expresses these details.
For example, one song can be very busy with many samples going at once, yet CK4 lets you pick out anything at anytime following it, with much ease over other DAP's, separation is wonderful. Stereo and imaging is also very good on this player, not over done like S9 with BBE, very much to the recording and vocals sound nothing short of amazing. But the attention to detail is absolutely super! stage is quite big compared to S9, makes Cowon S9 sound like a baby.
Full of air and nice width!
Bass detailing again, last night one track I must of played 100 times! I hear the bass playing a slightly lower note every second bar, this track I thought was the same bass line right through the entire song for over a year
but it changes! (hard to explain in words) My only concern is some bass roll off which is effecting my lower impedance IEM, it seems to hurt most at lower volumes, but listening over half way not so much, but needs to be mentioned.
I'll have more soon.Edit
I should mention my volume down button is now working fine.Edited by H20Fidelity - 11/23/12 at 4:12pm
