Oh yeah, they "bang" all right LOL! Actually, if you want some progressive rock that "bangs", well, I think you'll need something a bit heavier. Hmm, this might do. Crank up them S500's boys!:

 

Edit: Oops - not the S500 thread... Crank up whatever you're listening to lol!:

3580 and 3680 are reported to sound exactly the same,  check Joe's thread.

I said no such thing. The 3680 has warmer midbass and less high mids. I prefer the 3580 but to each his own. smily_headphones1.gif

naaah they share similar contours but I'd say that this is almost exactly the same as the new astrotec excalibur:

So my quest for the greatest DAC/AMP combo for the cash has lead me to this interesting looking item.

700

Called an AUNE T1..While I was searching those cheapo DACs on ebay I kept on landing on one of these. I told myself if these sound as good as they look these can be something special in the world of DAC/AMPs.. This one is a bit pricy compared to the others and does cost 2X as more as a Fire Phoenix. The read online are composed of some very lofty claims for these and it seems to be a regular theme when describing the sound that is coming out of these. So I just ordered one. I will have 2 sub $50 DACs and this $200 AUNE T1 to check out very soon. I will compare this to the others I have..If these sound like what the guys are describing online.  I think this is what I have been looking for in sound hardware, and one I can tune by changing the tubes on here.

 

I know with the money I spent I could have easily bought a high end DAP. But you know what, I recently figured out that I love my tube amp from my Bravo. So much so I decided to take the next step and try something higher end..Considering high end DAC/AMPs can cost in the thousands. I will throw this one in as being cheaper dac/amp...I eagerly look forward to hearing this AUNE T1. And I will report back here with what I hope is the best sounding dac/amp my ears have ever heard..

The AUNE T1 looks exactly what I might be looking for. =)

I'm just glad that I'm still happy with my clip zip and sgs2. How long that will last is anyone's guess lol.

It's a slippery slope...once you have a high end DAC (which is considered inexpensive at $500-1000, middling at about $2500-4,000, and the sky's the limit for the really "good" stuff), then you need a preamp/amp/speakers which can do these justice (you won't hear any better sound than your weakest link, so a $3000 DA converter playing through a $200 receiver and Radio Shack speakers would be a total waste, couldn't hear what the DA can do), next thing you know, you're mortgaging the house, selling the car, working 3 jobs...

Well the MH1Cs have arrived today, and initially am not so impressed,

I have been listening to the R1's for the past few days and they have just been brilliant for me,

Hopefully with a lot more burn in they should be a whole lot better.

They just don't seem to wow me at the moment,

post #4755 of 26798

I must say... I'm enjoying the MH1C over my R1 and FXD80.

 

So far the double flange included with the  R1 works best for on these for me.
