Listening to song (album actually) now through my Schitt Vali and Modi. Excellent suggestion.

isn't that a great album too?  new Rolling Stone has big article on the Keys and this album in particular thats very interesting...

is the CD version a lot better sonically than the YouTube version or amazon mps3?  high rez out yet?

the Keys make fun of high rez equipment in an interview i read, so i wonder....and most of their albums are "low fi" even

on vinyl...anyway I've been listening to DEEP BLUE for days on the cloud through ATH RE700S, TX2S, IM50S and other

gear of that ilk...actually sonds better than on my On-1s... Dangermouse was co artist on this Keys album and its saturated

with strange buzzing noises and synth warbles that get confusing to really good phones, but that the ones mentioned above

seem integrate into a coherent gestalt....nature of the beast i think...

Yeah, but the hi-rez version is badly compressed like the CD. The vinyl on the other hand seems to be decent enough http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/list?artist=The+Black+Keys&album=Turn

whoa, thats interesting data on the dynamic range difference of the vinyl, hi res files and cd.  think i will track down a vinyl copy.of DEEP BLUE...

Thats crazy info, is that typically true of a lot of new cds and high res files??

I've never heard a high res. album, but this album is far from lo-fi. I never listened to the youtube version. I bought the CD from amazon, and they sent me automatically a mp3 version. It sounds marvelous. Great out the FX850, and very very good out to of the TE-05.

Took the plunge on some Singolos, CKR5s and some Tenors. Never owned them so might as well jump aboard. Can't wait to hear em all. It is a good time to be in the hobby.

Well, this has been discussed many times. Some people will argue that the vinyl measurements aren't 100% accurate due to added noise and such but the fact is that if a CD uses a compressed master and the vinyl doesn't, the vinyl is always the clear winner and you don't need expensive headphones to hear the difference. Of course, this is not a universal thing - often there are CD releases that use the same master as the vinyl release and that master can be either good or bad, so sometimes both may be highly compressed. The same goes for the HD releases - there are some great HD releases with high dynamic range and superb sound but very often the HD releases use the same master as the CD and IMO that totally makes then unworthy of the premium price. But hi-res vs CD quality is not something I want to discuss yet again. I'll just say that often the reason people are impressed with 24bit stuff whether it's a hi-res release or a vinyl rip is only because of the superior dynamic range of the particular release and not its bit depth.

The sad reality is that the Loudness war is still going strong and a ton of great albums are just destroyed by it but probably the good thing for all the studios is that the average listener seems to still not realize that. For instance, most people still claim that Adele's albums sound fantastic and they still measure sound quality by how loud a song is, completely unaware of what dynamic range is, what it does and what pile of garbage some retard in the studio has created from a great album.

Oh exciting time to be in this hobby with all of the mid-fi choices. I'm using the Doppios connected to the Schitt Modi and Vali and large small opening Heaven V tips. The imaging and instrument separation is something mind-boggling. I just can't imagine the Tenore sounding better than this here, but I will find out soon enough. Not as dynamic sounding as the BA-200, but pushing in that direction. Yet, the BA-200 couldn't dream of having the clarity, instrument separation and transparency I'm hearing out of the Doppios... Just stunning to my ears. And also the sub bass is excellent coming out of a dual BA. I have to say the Doppios, TE-05, V and FX850 do something extremely well that's better than the other ones. TE-05 pushing toward a BA sound, and the Doppios pushing toward a dynamic sound. Okay, need to force them out of my ears so that I can go to bed. Good night.

Oh, my. I don't know when they started offering it because they certainly never used to back when the JVC FXZ200 was a thing, but I've just discovered that Tenso now forwards to South Africa.

Oh me, oh my. Think I'd best just... Not investigate any further until I'm done with my studies and have a real job again. Yes indeed.

When ordering Tenso.. Just go crazy on the purchases the more you buy the more you save on shipping. lol. 3 to 4 iems and phones at a time. Gotta maximize that shipping and handling charge.
