After some days with 2 newly acquired amps (T1 and the Glacier), the Apex Glacier gave me the chills, even more than the DX100 used to, esp. in the music instrument separation. The micro details are there, but with some songs , I noticed clips and some noise while listing, so I thought it must be the Glacier, so I muted the Volume....No Hiss or interference or whatever...it was just revealing the tracks with so much clarity, that I could make a bad recording from a good one...I never thought I could hear this from a portable amp. This makes the Glacier, unfortunately , unbearable with some tracks , while the T1 amp is more fun, esp. with my Sen. 598 (which I find it so neutral and totally underestimated here at Headfi) which sounds amazing , not revealing, but amazing as in enjoying almost all my tracks with this amp/can.

Technically the Glacier is better ( but double the price) , but the T1 does a very good job in keeping you in the "Music moment", many times I went continuously for hours, without any irritation. There are cheaper amps out there, but I doubt they are refined like the T1 to be enjoyable.

It loves my JH16 (could not make any background noise), and it added something that made them sound , not better, but (just can’t describe it easily) more engaging and relaxing, with a fine detail, but not overshadowing or emphasizing this detail.

The T1 is one of the most "Fun" amps I listened to, it just works, simple and clean---->

Just saying I love Utada. Kingdom Hearts got me into her music. Amazing. Her none speed up/ altered version is sooo good. <3

 

cheers

True, but my thing was I was only wanting a set or two and it was enough for a few weeks. Then I was like 0_0 and realized I wanted more. I should go for some LCD2s and Fostex ah900s. I want to see both the closed LCDs and New AH600s though before I do that.

Yeh I eventually made the move to larger tips and shallow insertion and t seemed less 'in the head' if I understand correctly and a slightly better seal for lower end...go figure. I used to be a big fan of deeper insertion. Although I don't think it will be a world of difference to that 'in the head' soundstage you are experiencing currently though, so I'm not sure if you will the get as much of a difference as you may expect. Let us know how you go?

 

@turokrocks keep the sexy photos coming. Gotta love that blue LED glare against (I'm guessing) silver LOD..

How come no one has compared the T1 amp to the ALO audio RX3B?
 

post #750 of 5603

Because there aren't many T1s out there in the wild, as those who have an RX3B would probably be content with it, or have spent too much on it to spend another 250 on the T1.
