I only just got the SM3s so will probably stick with them for a year. I would want customs eventually however. You can upgrade the SM3s to custom yeah? Would that involve going to an audiologist and sending your SM3s back to Ear Sonics with the mould? Would this kind of upgrade be substantial/good value for money?
I'm also going to paste my previous questions again here as they got buried in the thread before.
Hi all...I'm considering buying a used DX100. Almost my entire library is lossless 16bit/44.1kHz. Most of my listening is alternative rock (for want of a better term eg a lot of Radiohead) and some electronic (not dance, but for example The Knife, Fever Ray, the Notwist, Ulrich Schnauss). Also 50% of my listening is LIVE recordings (good quality audience bootlegs or soundboards) of the same music.
I have SM3s. Only for portable use, not transportable or desktop.
I can't audition the iBasso or the F series Sony's in Australia so looking for some guidance.
1. Is the DX100 likely to suit me more than any other standalone DAP?
2. I've also got an iPhone and iPod. Is there any PORTABLE (not transportable or desktop) DAC/amp combo around the USD 600 mark for iDevices that would beat (not match, because I would prefer the one box solution) the DX100.
