A good DAP that sounds better than the Zune HD. - Page 2

So it will be going on tour shortly. All I ask is that you leave a review or at least some detailed impressions in comparison to your other DAPs. Either it will be in the curretn Rocoo BA thread or I may just create one specifically for the tour itself. It will be beneficial to the community I think.

 Lee i am interested in the rocoo p would this go with my AKG q701 and fiio e9?

having owned both the j3 and the s:flo2 i can say that both sound great, although the s:flo2 is easily the winner in sound quality, its absolutely god awful in everything else, battery life, UI, everything, but the sound is totally worth it. They seem to be hard to get now though...

Well the Rocoo P does have an output Power of 50mW. The Zune HDs output power is 22.5mW. So the rocoo P has more than double its power output. Just going from that alone if you considered the Zune to be enough power to properly drive your AKG I'd say the Rocoo would be even better. I haven't heard the Rocoo P or the AKG Q701 so I won't be able to help you there. I own the Rocoo BA and Studio V 3rd ANV.

 I definately am tempted to buy a studio V now, but how about the s:Flo2 or w/e it's called TEClast t51? is that compared to the cowon and Hisound?

I preferred my Hifiman 601 to the Sflo2 or T51. My Studio V is a big step above the Hifiman 601 in my opinion. So going based on that I'd say the Studio V slams the T51. The Rocoo P is on par with the Sflo2 according to ClieOs opinion. T51 is superior to Cowons IMO.

 is the studio V specicially desighned for the IEM's ? I mainly use only headphones. I definately am going to get the studio V now, but i wonder if they will sound nice with the akg's

It would actually be more suited to headphones to be honest. But the newer model is now also more IEM friendly since they significantly reduced the hiss. Hiss should not be an issue though on full size headphones. I am waiting for my replacement unit to be delivered and I'll confirm if the hiss has been reduced even further (my unit came defective and ran super hot, not normal operation). Studio V is very detailed, in all ranges. Treble is very well extended and articulate. Mid-range is upfront and in your face. Very nice aspect IMO. Bass is very well controlled, never overbearing and never lacking. It's tight and lean. The sound stage is very airy and wide. Imaging is like acid. Very strong and energetic.

If you are going for best sound quality and power the Studio V 3rd ANV would be it. You can also shop around for the older version which you may be able to get for cheaper as well. There is noticeably more hiss on it however but with full size headphones that most likely won't be a big issue. IMO though Studio has the best sound. Super long battery life, very sturdy build quality, has micro SD support (you can use 64GB cards by formatting them to FAT32). The UI isn't the best in the world though but is pretty simple to use. Access your music via the Resource menu (folder view) for the most speed. It also has the option to play all your music and shuffle. Viewing via albums/artists can be a little buggy at times. I never use that method though as I am not patient and like speed. :) If anything I recommend you create folders like I do and put your preferred music into those specific folders (like playlists).

Contact Jack via PM. His name is listed as Hisound on the thread. I'll post the link below. You can try ask him if you can do a review on it and get it at half off. Can't guarantee you anything but it may be worth a shot if it can save you money :).
