i got to take my previous statement back. this thing sounds wonderful with pimeta!

 

previously i didn't set the volume of my rocoo P to max (or HDMS mode), for the sake of saving battery life. somehow this compromised the sound quality. but when i set the player to hdms mode, the studio-V is getting outclassed!

You can also amp your Rocoo-P with the Studio-V and see how this sounds wink_face.gif

i'm way ahead of you :P already tried that, i didn't feel any improvement over the internal rocoo P amplifier. lol

 

now i know pimeta is obviously a much more higher end amplifier. i'm curious how this amp stacks up against 2stepdance

did anyone know how to physically differentiate the ROCOO with ROCOO P?

 

or maybe the menu inside not the same?

They both have the same contorller chip, but RoCoo P comes with a separate amp section that is similar to that of Studio line.

Which one sounded for you better ClieoOS, T51, or Rocoo P?

I kind of answered the same question before, but here is the answer again - T51 has a little more bass impact and more textured lower end. RoCoo P is a little cleaner and more detail on the top end. To me, they are pretty much on par when only SQ is concerned.

The clearest DAP I have ever tried, it beats my previous Hifiman 602/601 and Sony X1051 in term of transparencies, the only weakness so far it turns sennheiser HD-25 i II into bass polite cans smily_headphones1.gif

It all comes down to synergy as well. While my IE80s are a dream made in heaven with the Studio V its not the case with my FX700. Just too much clarity and it makes the music annoying. Now when using the 601 with my FX700 its a much better pairing.

Thanks for your answer.

We will resume the retail price which is USD 179 next month. So, Please take the last chance to bid for the ROCOO P or STUDIO.

These definitely break in. I'm very happy with stock FW at this point, IEMs included. The top has opened up just enough where stock is preferred. It's also got more texture and the mids has lost that extra thickness. Really happy with this unit. It has a very non HFi type of presentation. Nice and natural without spectacular spotlighting or electronic glare while still informative. I suspect I could give it a run with an Ipod touch3/lod/amp but it would need to be an amp that cost as much as the retail Rocoo on it's own and then we run into my bulk issue. I wouldn't mind trying a Studio at some point but for me, the extra thickness isn't that appealing. Rocoo is a sweet spot for me.

You can use them fine but when there is no sound you will here some hiss for sure. Im experiencing it, with my vsonic gr06 that are rated as 24 ohm, to such a degree that im really considering buying one of those adapters. But with headphones with higher imp, in my case 60 something n over, the sound is perfect.

 

Great soundstage and the little sucker sure has some powaa.
