Yes, if there is poorly recorded material the 334 is going to let you know for sure. I have spend many hours re-ripping CDs and it has paid off big time.
I can hear the difference between MP3 and Lossless.  I went to using a DAC/AMP which I plug the 334s into and that is another giant leap in quality.
Even more important then lossless. Most MP3s that I have left sound much better now. Sometimes I have to double check what format the cut is recorded in as I don't remember re-ripping and it sounds so good (just did it as I am writing LOL). I am hearing notes and whole instruments in songs I never have before!
 
The three together, FT!334, lossless format, and a DAC/AMP = DYNAMITE

Hi Sara
Please try to compare with WAV file , I think you become more dynamite .
WAV is my file music that I always use

Yeah that's just about the only little gripe that I have with the uha-6s mkii. You have my dream rig! Can't wait to hear your impressions on how the leck dx100 334 sound together. popcorn.gif

If you use the DX100 with it the channel imbalance will be a none-issue. Because the DX100s line out is adjustable so there will be no channel imbalance issues unless you are just trying to find a fault. The hiss on the DX100 is so low that to make complaints about it is laughable. It's barely audible even with no music playing on low gain (I actually have to listen for it to even notice it at this level). Slightly audible on medium gain with no music. But it is quite audible on high gain without music.

This week I will publish review of the DX100 and 334. It is long past due, but the combo is very good.

for me the tg334s really shines on my r10-dx100's line out only.. very very transparent.. i just EQed especially the 8k region to give it some spark.. some tweaks on the 31 and 125 region to give

 

it a little bit or warmth without compromising the transparency..

 

when I use the dx100's phone out at low gain, you will notice how warm the tg334s will be.. the difference between phone out and line out is dramatic for me..  ymmv ..

Negative on both counts. Contact iBasso.

I agree so much. xD

 

After listening to my TG334s on my iPod classic 7g - CLAS - Continental V2 with ALAC files, I've never once listened to my iphone 5 with mp3s and AACs again.

??? When I'm listening to my leck on the laptop, and turn the knob really low I start to get channel imbalance too, it's not just him!

Can you do the review with the uha-6s mkii as the amp? That's the rig I've been dying to get. I already have the amp but I'm probably going to get dx100 first and then eventually get the 334's.

It's very typical of potentameters to lose tracking near the bottom of the dial. Doesn't make it OK or not depending on whether you're just testing for it or it's actually is in the listening range. I know an Ipod touch has a very high line out so could be an issue there with sensative IEMs. 2 solutions would be a better tracking pot that still works as well otherwise (which may not be available to fit that position) or to have the overall gain lowered.

Sorry, the Leckterton? Maybe I misunderstood. If the Leckerton has channel imbalance at low listening levels then that's just a characteristic of an analog potentiometer. Only way to 'fix' it is to listen louder, lower the gain or replace it with a digital potentiometer. The DX100 should not have this issue at all because it uses a digital potentiometer. Mine, for example, doesn't.

 

In regards to the hiss, contact iBasso. My DX100 does exhibit low level higher frequency noise so I contacted iBasso and they replied that the DX100 should have a noise floor of -117dB.which is far from audible. Here's their reply to me.

 

Hi,
I am sorry to hear this.  I dont know what is happenning, however, if you can hear the background noise, then your DX100 isnt normal.  The DX100 has 117dB SN, you are not suppose to hear background noise with it.
Please consider to send it back to us, we only can tell the problem after we have this DX100 on hand. You can send the DX100 only.

Following that message was directions to ship the DX100 back to them. They sent that to me on the 18th of August, 2012. Still haven't sent it back because despite the noise it still sounds too freaking good. rolleyes.gif

I don't think the ipod has that high of a line out output that you'd run into channel imbalance on the volume pot. I think something more along the line of the Sflo2 or a power monster maybe. But even then lol I still highly doubt it. Where I actually ran into this issue was using it on my desktop in bit for bit mode with no volume control via the program connected to my DACport LX. That is Class A and has a lot of power where I did run into this issue. But using it with cPlay not an issue at all :).

you will be surprised, the ipod line out output is the highest I have ever listened to (solo is also very very high). With the ipod, I can't turn the volume nob at all, it's just tooooo loud.

I had listened to the TG334 on many top of the line portable setups. Now I am using the earpod with my iPhone 5 running AACs. wink_face.gif

The line output of the iPod is really high - I run into channel imbalance on the volume pot even with the UHA6SMKII when using my CIEM. The CLAS is worse.
