Most likely a defect cuz i don't hear any sibilance on my sets whatsoever. The highs are nicely extended but not overly so. Sucks to hear that about your set. :  (

dubstep in a loop @ 90% volume on iPod nano 5th gen. I guess my pair are rejects from factory because I got them new but w/o packaging from eBay.

I have two words to say about the hype that goes on about the Hifimediy Sabre Dac: hype on!

 

It really does sound amazing. Anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive and awesome "bang for buck" upgrade to the ELE DAC need apply! :)

My ELE is relegated to my daughter's desktop and kind of collecting dust but I do listen to them occasionally due to it having a different sound sig of the Hifimediy. The ELE is still a good value but the Hifimediy is IMO a big step up.

CKS1000 does require MASSIVE amount of burn in. Around 100 hours of burn in I kinda regretted buying CKS1000 as only bass is better than EPH-100. After 300 hours of burn in CKS1000 leaves EPH-100 in the dust

Well my XWF600 arrived and straight out the box these are not my kind of sound signature. Not bad after some burn in but not what I was looking for.

Sorry, I haven't heard the E17. Hopefully others who have will pipe in.

Yes, the sound is better than E17. However, don't forget - this is just a DAC, E17 is a DAC and an Amp.

Sabre can push HE-400 to a comfortable volume (barely), but E17 has a lot more power.

For sensitive phones, go with Hifimediy.

...orrr, you can pair it with a dedicated amp! smily_headphones1.gif

 

I run mine through my Asgard, into my HD600.

Ok so now I have enough funds to make my purchase it really comes down to the CKS1000 or the Fidelio S2 for my next upgrade in audio (from CKN 70's).

 

I'm really not sure which one to go for though, it's only between 2 options at least which helps lol. I should maybe wait for more impressions of the S2 first.

It's the equivalent of the ODAC. Almost everyone who has owned both can hear no difference between the two.

 

Yep, it's that good. It destroys the ELE is every way possible.
