I wait for that day of evolvement and enlightenment!

That day happened to me the day I reviewed the LCD-3's and Burson Soloist SL.

Very very nice sound, but it confirmed to me that there really wasn't anything I PERSONALLY(this is different for others) wanted otherwise to get in my sound and that its incremental updates are better suited for others

Are you trying to speed up my evolution or something? C'mon, I like slow and easy and incremental and stupid lol!

 

Ok yeah, if I were to try those LCD3's, I could see myself hammering on the brakes as well. So thanks for pointing them out. I'll be looking into the Soloist as well.

 

The only thing that the LCD3's have going against them is that this guy likes them:

I'll try to overlook that wink.gif

A lot of people post about noise and distortion during use while charging, but it depends on the power source, imo. Using my ipad charger, I hear no difference in sound; however, using a usb connection to my laptop, for example, and I get the high frequency squeek.

I'm still using my E12 practically all the time. So much so that I think I'm gonna sell off my BH, which see practically no play time anymore, to help fund an iCan!

I tried QLS QA350v2 LO>E12>ATH Ad700. This set up has good match, as E12's slightly warmness compensate well with Qa350's more cool sound and E12 reduced AD700's big but somewhat empty soundstage. The bass boost helps greatly with Ad700. Now I used Ad700 most of the time-I tried to sell this can for $50 but will never do that after I got my E12.

Yes, it is dangerous!

 

I have to thank head-fi, though. Back when I had the Q701 paired with the E12 on my desktop setup, I turned on some classical via Pandora. I was doing homework at the time, and felt like I was accessing a larger percentage of my brain... eek.gif

 

My grades have now increased, slightly, since picking up this hobbie... seriously. I just crank up some classical or jazz and it gets me in a groove while studying.

^^^^^^^^ This.

 

Anyway, if I plug the E12 on the USB ports of my iMac it charges really fast (up to 5V/1100mA max, as with mostly recent Machintosh computers/displays) so I can stop playing music and wait the needed time to reach a full charge. biggrin.gif

 

 

EDIT: I've tried to plug the E12 in my Mac keyboard while playing music, and suddenly...

Result: really slow charging time + horrid buzzing sound (the Mighty mouse attached to my keyboard adds even more noise, as expected)! biggrin.gif

The E12 will play while charging.

Ok I have a question.....
I was wondering what about a e17 and e12 combo???????
I am going to change my s3 for a s4....wink.gif
Yes I know the the non-US version has a wolfson dac but as far as I have read the dac in the e17 is better.....
so I was thinking of getting a e17 as a dac for the s4 and lo bypassing it using the L7 and driving the e12????
I plan on using a XBA-3, MDR-1R, HD518 and a few other xba's.....
I was also thinking if this is a good enough setup of getting a HD650?????biggrin.gif
I have a good offer for it........

this is my main amp ..... over my other desktops and other portables. This is really a work of audio art to me i use a few different sound prossesors to pre amp the signal, and she deffinatly gets it done i have the e11 as well and i am a major basshead. I am as well trying to find a way to give it a pure digital signal as well i have the l9 lod cord but i really dont care for apple devices anybody got any ideas witch way to go???

For the price, you could be looking at Leckerton's, iBasso's and what not that could do similar stuff.
