Apex Glacier amp/dac review and appreciation thread - Page 22

post #316 of 792
Then you can reread my post. I said this amp was well built, neat and sounded good. Just not feeling that it made a huge difference over the DX100 amp. But of course I could only test it for 30 mn. Earphones are my Shure SE530x6, remoulded with 6 drivers. Once again, I am sorry if you felt I was dissing the amp lightly, which I did not if you read my post. It is in my opinion at least as good as the DX100 internal amp, but not making à 9319 9972 différence...to my taste...to warrant 450 bucks. But surely it does with an iPod, with is more its intended purpose I think. Anyway, lets not make this more than it is, I clearly ended my post with "great Prodi t though". I have tried many amps with the DX100, and non of them made me want to upgrade, excpet maybe tube amps as they have à very diffèrent sound.

Shop address is: Room 1805,18/F, Ho King Commercial Centre, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong

Really nice guy. His shop is a 50 sq feet room, but he had CIEMs too.

Thanks! It sounds like another great shop to visit in Hong Kong.

Ah! Jaben is also where I spend most of my audio time in HK (although I bought my IE800 at AV2000). Aura is another good store. I always drop by Kingsound Audio and Mingo too.

 

Most interesting that you mentioned the Private 335. I am not very interested in balanced armature IEMs anymore - too hard on my ears - but the 335, which I also listened to at Jaben, blew me away. It is like the 334 but with tight controlled bass. Truly impressive.

Will you be using just the amp, or amp and DAC?

I think you should play it safe and buy them all. This is supposed to be Head-Fi you don't leave anything to chance. wink_face.gif

If you take look at reviews, they all have différent sound signatures. The Alo Continental has a V3 just out apparently improving over the V2. I am trying that because I think tubes can bring something to my DX100. Depends on your transport and DAC.

+1. I have found Head-Fi members with good feedback and few years of posting history to be among the most reliable people I have ever come across.
