That was probably a new member with a low post count.

gnarlsagan do you think you could help me do RMAA testing? I got some of it setup but not exactly sure how to have everything set up. I need an idiot proof walk through man. Maybe you could help me through PM? I'd like to do a test on the Studio V and my other equipment as well. I managed to do a loop test of my Xi-Fi card which came out as being average..... Other than that not sure if I did everything right or if those results are accurate....

You'd want to talk to dftk http://www.head-fi.org/u/28295/dfkt about that.

The UHA6MKII about 30 hours I think. Same with the Triad on the 700mAH batteries but those are a bit of a pain to have to take out and manually charge. Pretty much just relegating the L3 to my desktop plugged directly into the wall-wart... redface.gif
 

How is DX100 vs. UHA6MKII, by the way? Especially amp vs. amp?

Well I still think the UHA6 MKII amp is superior IMO but for some reason I'm technically enjoying the DX100 better through its own Amp section after the update. It's not always about the technicalities in the end but for me it's pure musical enjoyment that I care about. I have to admit the DX100 amp is still extremely good on it's own. So far though I am enjoying the T1 Amp the most with the DX100 and am even preferring it now to the Leckerton. It took quite a while to break this amp in but it's really showing its potential now. So at this point I'm not really sure if the Leckerton is better than the T1 amp. It's all preference but I feel the T1 amp has better control and placement of the sound staging and is effortless in all 3 frequencies. But the Leckerton does have more versatility and in that it definitely wins. But still it's not really getting used these days. If it continues I may end up putting it up for sale. I mainly use the Triad L3 on my desktop and the T1 with the DX100.

I have the CLAS and the DX-100 is much better. In fact my CLAS is for sale on this forum.

Thanks, lee730. I still don't know if I'm willing to dish out nine hundreds for DX100 or whether I'd be better of with a DAC/amp for both my notebook and some cheaper DAP like the future X3 (I'd prefer to have as little gear as possible), but it's good to know your options.

It really depends on what you are after. Portability will always have its limits but surprisingly the DX100 seems to have been able to break that limit and take it to another level. Now of course I'm sure a more expensive home DAC and amp is gonna scale noticeably better. But that is transportable at best or strictly for home usage. It will depend on what your needs are.

so for the price whats better the ck4 or c3 bc there close in price

post #163 of 181

C3 is better as it is solely designed for Audio and not video playback ex, Ck4

post #164 of 181

There is a review of the CK4, and also a comparison against the C3, Sansa Rocoo p, Studio V on a French site tupperwav.com. Is anyone familiar with that site? There are quite a few reviews of high end products, but I have no idea if their reviews are reliable or not.

Comparison: They like the CK4 the best for audio quality.
