However, assuming we're talking about the JH16 - I have always had the player around the upper 130 \ lower 140 setting in the office.
Although there are variances in the different tracks, they are generally the same ones I have been listening to for months - give or take the odd new album.
Wow - I would have found that painful at 190 plus.....not so sure now...might have to see how the player sounds now at that volume.
The EQ has always been set to Closed (off) - it does get louder if I switch it to Open(On)
@Rozeqcloud - Love his new album. I play it most days and I appreciate the brilliance of it more with each listen. There are so many layers to each of the tracks, I seem to discover something new with each listen.
I found on first few listens that it appeared disjointed and random - That I think is its brilliance, because as you listen to it more, you discover that it is anything but random and that each song is carefully crafted and the whole album fits together as one. For example, its taken a while for what I thought was just a cacophony of sounds at the beginning of "Holy Drinker", to click and understand that it is not just random sounds, but that it all flows and fits together.
Each time I get to the closing bars of "The Raven", I find myself thinking...."Is that it? Has it really been an hour!!! "
I guess I'll let iBasso know and keep an ear on it and see if the volume keeps going down over the next few weeks.
