I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's got a very good forward yet somewhat warm sound to my ears. I was using my Fiio E17 through usb audio recorder pro before this and it is a big step up from that in terms of overall sound quality & detail.

Funnily enough Ive been using a E17 with usb recorder pro, clever app but I really like Neutron.

I really dont understand why the developed doesnt just make it an audio player as well. Theres a market for it.

I think he concentrates on making non supported dacs interwork with android, which is clever, I was kinda thinking that he should work with the Neutron dev or at least add mp3 support. There both nice developers and very helpful.

He is in contact with the Neutron dev, who is actively interested in supporting USB audio via USB Audio Recorder Pro.

Alright guys anyone can tell me in detail how this amp pairs with the jh16 or the jh13, especially the treble and also how it compares to the RSA intruder thanks guys

I will make it simple and say, with my JH16 everything is crystal clear and balanced. Bass is there, treble is moderate/tamed and the mids are wonderful...just pure fun.

Details are there  and its a forward amp in general, but a fun one.

Hey, I'm new to this whole audiophile thing. I'm currently using my Iphone 4s as my source with an EQ (like Equ or Accudio), to give my CIEM a little more "oomph" in the lower frequencies. But now I'm looking to get the CLAS db paired with the glaicer. Can I still use my  EQ software with this external DAC and amp?

I can't see why not.

What about the soundstage, is it too forward? Cause the jh16 has been known to lack depth.

May you elaborate.

I do apologise for my post not being clear, what i meant was that as a past owner of the jh16, i felt that its soundstage depth was rather poor compared to other CIEMs and it had a pretty foward sound. To put it simply, how does the apex change the soundstage.

No problem...wink_face.gif.

 

Well, to be honest in general the Glacier's sound stage is "Spacious enough" , at least to me.

The O2's sound-stage is more "3D", with some songs I prefer it, but with most of the songs the Glacier wins.

It has this ability to give the vocals (women) this "moist" characteristic...hope this helps...cool.gif. 

 

With all my headphones or IEMs , the one that sounded the best with the Glacier is the HD598....I just find myself enjoying it so much , as to be living the music...wish someone would try the combination, and prove me right/wrong.
