Not so simple if you have fit issues or defects in your IEMs. Gregorz will support you but you have to jump through hoopes and ship back to a proxy which in turn will cost you a lot more due to shipping charges. Just food for thought.

Here at i am still wondering where to find a friend in Europe in the first place. But we digress. Wrong thread.

Well it seems there's a 334 for free here...no IC, and even listed as $0.00 ;-) :-

The Default 001 cable is good. I tried a hybrid copper + silver 4 cores cable. Although the sound become more fuller n bass got more layers. It just dun have the prat n fitear magic of the 001 cable.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I think it gives credence to two points that we tend to make: firstly, always try the default cable first; and secondly, different cables bring to the fore different things. The bottom line is what you like with your fitear really depends on your personal preference of sig. It may happen with an aftermarket cable, or it may just be the default cable suits your tastes best.

Unless you like both and appreciate both sigs and keep both cables as some crazy fitear owners do (myself included, I'll be the first to confess). smily_headphones1.gif

Hi TG enthusiasts!  

 

I have a question for those that has experienced testing the TG with many sources.  I own several portable and desktop sources, and noticed that the best source that brings out the best in TG is the objective DAC/Amp combo.  I tried the Fiio E17, and it doesn't seem to bring it out as much as the objective combo.  Anybody think there is a better setup, that would beat out the objective combo?  

 

Thanks.

it really depends on what you're looking for.

for me the strong presence of sub bass on the 334 makes me feel that the bass is sometimes "slower". it's not what we're used to on multi BAs (mostly because BA usually suck in the extreme frequencies).

obviously the 334 has a lot of bass so it adds to that feeling. I would avoid any warm or bass boosting amp. and might prefer an amp with a slight roll off in the sub bass compared to the O2/odac to lower them and make it sound snappier/faster on some musical genres (just EQ down the sub bass a little with the O2 you'll get what I mean).

 keep away from most TOTL powerful amps for they usually like to hiss and the 334 loves to share that part with you.

my latest discovery is the leckerton UHA760. I make it my favorite portable amp for the 334. not trying to start a FOTM here, it is not the best sounding amp out there. but it calmed the sub bass slightly and made the 334 very nice to my ears,+ the easy volume control for sensitive IEMs and total lack of hiss made it my preferred combo to use. still the odac/o2 gives you a clearly bigger soundstage, so there is that. I love the sound of the O2 but I have troubles with channel imbalance and end up using foobar's volume control to lower it "a lot" even though I have a 1time gain on the O2.

so again no perfect candidate for me. maybe getting the o2 with -15db gain would be the answer?

I know what you mean about the channel imbalance with sensitive IEMs for the O2 amp.  I had trouble with this since ToGo is so easy to drive.  If you purchased your O2 through JDS, you probably have it at high gain setting.  You can lower you gain by snipping two resistors inside.  Do a search on lowering gain for O2 amp.   Once you lower the gain, you should have a balanced sound at lower volume level.  What's amazing with o2 is there is no hissing even at high gain, it's pretty amazing.  

 

What I want is a portable that has the the performance of O2 DAC/Amp combo.

got it from JDS but asked for 1x and 2.5x gain switch. he did it and sent it so fast that I had to open the box to check because I couldn't believe it smily_headphones1.gif. but it's still too high for comfy volume setting with the togo and jh13 for me. other IEMs are ok and my hd650 is very happy.

about portable and odac/o2 perf, it seems like the dx100 is one of the best bets (if you call it portable^_^). from memory the signature and resolution was pretty close, but I don't remember if the soundstage was of the same level. but I didn't try the 334 on the dx100 so you might want to ask around how well the combo works.

I wish I can lower the gain even more.  My next will be customs, probably JH 13pro FP.  Last CIEM I owned which was 1964-T, 1x gain was too loud still.  I guess since customs have higher isolation, it sounds much louder.

yup, that's why I mentioned the UHA760. -12db gain and digital volume control.

Which I happen to have for grabs.  :tongue_smile:

Have you guys tried Microstreamer?  I always wanted to source it with sensitive IEMs to test how it sounds.  I"ve tried the dragonfly, and it doesn't seem to be as transparent as the Objective combo.
