I found the Audio MIDI setup and set to higher format 88200. and 2 ch-32 bit (hope this is correct) and turned off a bunch of notifications and the equalizer in iTunes!

 

I could not understand why when I listened today to my iPod > Fostex HP-P1 (for the first time after getting the USB DAC/AMP) it sounded so much better than the MBP > 11.32......now I know it's not supposed to! LOL

 

What's after DYNAMITE? That's where the sound is at now on my home rig.

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.


I guess what I am trying to get at is is this channel imbalance a problem where it is too loud before there is no channel imbalance? I haven't tried my iphone4 yet maybe I'll give it a whirl. Just never had an issue with it before though :).

Yeah, its either no sound, channel imbalace, or too loud. I am not sure if the output gain of the lineout on the iPhone is the same as the iPod Classic. I only have iPhone 5 so I can't test it out.

Could be. I know eQu also helps in that regard. Seems to flatten the response out more when enabled to flat EQ.

My sincerest condolences.., ;(

EQ flat doesn't change the line signal level. It is unlike the DX100 or the S Flo 2.

Ops. :P Getting that mixed up with the HO on the iphone then.

That's my experience when using a headphone with high sensitivity/high efficiency drivers with a source that has an analog potentiometer and gain set for harder to drive headphones.

It happens too when you connect a source with very high line gain to a headamp with analog potentiometer even if that headamp was initially designed to drive low impedance high efficiency headphones.

I am agree with you , if you want more impact to make your fit ear 334 sound like LCD 2 rev 3 , please use in your set up Alo Rx 3 B

Minus : with Alo Rx 3 B is only minor hiss , doesn't reduce the sound quality my fit ear 334

I'm trial-ing a new Ortofon portable that will (is already?) sold in Japan - MHd-Q7. It's not as powerful as the Rx Mk3 therefore don't expect it to drive LCDs, Hifimans, or HD800s nicely. However for the TG!334, it actually is very very nice. It's a pity the form factor isn't as integrated as the Rx Mk3 especially with the CLAS -dB, however I'm actually liking the 3D holographic even more with the MHd-Q7. In addition Ortofon in general likes to have the more natural "old days" analogue kinda sound and this amp doesn't emphasise on bass as it does on mids/highs but this is where I find it matches the TG!334's more bass and mid-rich signature. Seems to add a little more balance overall to the TG!334.

 

I hope to write a review soon on the MHd-Q7.

So, this might be a weird (reversed) question, but can anyone tell me how the RE262 compares with the TOGO!334? It's funny, but I've never heard the RE262 and it's remarkably difficult to get my hands on one here. They seem like they have a few different shared sonic attributes --- I was wondering if anyone could confirm that fact.

For me the stock RE262 have a much warmer sound than the TG334, this is why I prefer the RE262 with the foams removed, brighter and more sparkle. However, from my memory, they are still warmer than the 334, due to the roll-off treble, there isn't much of treb energy in them. The RE262's mid is also more mellow, both are smooth and great with vocal, but the 334 has a more neutral tone which covers a wider range of genre, definitely much more versatile. The bass on 262 is looser, less quantity, 334 have punchier bass, more impact with better attack and speed, I would say that the 262's bass is a bit slow for me. The sound signature of  the 262 as a whole is more relax, more mellow, quite intimate with female vocals as well, kinda like a tube amp sound IMO, they are just not as engaging as the TG334 to me. Other aspects such as detail, soundstage, imaginng, extensions, there's pretty much no competition, the 334 have the upper hand.

 

Well that's a comparison from my memory, my RE262's cable is broke and I don't touch them anymore, the last time I heard them was like 2 months ago rolleyes.gif
