The discovery thread.! NEW DannyBai's take on the new Yamaha EPH M200 PG 1769!! - Page 1613

post #24181 of 27055

So, I was using the Fiio E9/E10 DAC/amp combo on with my iMac and the Hope VI. That was a decent combination, but today I received my Schiit Modi DAC and tube hybrid Vali amplifier, and Oh Schiit! This brings out ever minute detail that I didn't even think the Hope VI was hiding! What a fantastic desk DAC and Amp for the Pandora Hope VI. Try it fellas!!

 

 

I also A/Bed the VI against the X1 (using the DX50). I still love the X1's sound, but it sounded like a toy speaker next to the VI...

 

 

 

Finally, he shall go nameless, but I would like to say thank you to a hi-fi friend who felt I was worthy to hear what many of our top reviewers consider the best universal IEM out there: the 1Plus2. I should receive it tomorrow and give impressions as soon as possible. This has become a great week for me in listening to wonderful music. Thanks again my friend! :beerchug:

 Awesome eric! Looking very much forward to your impressions. And the lender is a worthy dude no doubt :)

Well carcacara08, I just want to hear them, but I'm 99.9 percent certain that I will never pay over $!K for a universal or custom earphone (or headphone). Although I can close to buying a significantly reduced in price Senn. IE800, but resisted in the end. I think a little over $600 for the Pandora Hope VI was my limit (and that was a tough fight, but it's worth what I paid for it). The V8s are calling my name, but they're a bit too high for me. I'm really content. I don't expect these earphones to shoot that much above the FX850 or H3. The former is just mind blowing to my ears.

Thanks! I went with the Tenore for now. My wife hopefully won't notice the purchase.

The Ostry KC06s looked interesting but I haven't had much luck with the IEMs from China. 

Build-quality is alright but somehow all of them (VSD1 and a few others) have died on me in less than 1 year.

 

When I'm ready to buy another pair of IEMs, I'll probably look at the Zero audio Doppio or ATH-IM02.

Bhazard said they complement each other. Each of them is good in their own respects. At least, that's what he said.

Those ostrich birds sound so good, I am going to use them relentlessly. They will be lucky to survive 6 months let alone 1 year. Hmmm - I'd better get the KC06A's as backup. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Quick comparison between the KC06 and M200 when you have the time? :)

How does the Shure SE315 compare to KC06 and B3 Pro 1?

post #24192 of 27055

Oh for all geek mofos out there based on the numbers is the geek 720 like 1/3 or 2/3s more powerful amp wise compared to the 450s??? And the 1000 is twice as powerful as the 450s??? Just curious about exactly how much more power each are, cuz of the numerous options.

 

Thanks in advance!!!

Yeah my issue isn't as much to do with budget (Budget isn't sky high obviously) but finding the right pair of IEMs that are comfortable and sound great.

You just gotta take the plunge man as I get the feeling you're gonna be here in a few months time still deciding which IEM to pick if you don't.
