Thank you!  Not so portable, but it sounds great and lets me wander from room to room!

It's the Parterre.  My favorite iem so far. Might look a little different with the Comply's on them (which sound surprisingly great).  I've been doing a little tip rolling lately!

3 days a go the first time I have heard Fostex HP V 1 tube hybrid amp

Source : AK 240
Amp : Fostex HP V1 tube hybrid amp
Headphone : LCD XC

Sound quality compare to my ALO Continental V2
High : Fostex HP V1 more crisp and detail with more volume
Mid : is more sweet and intimate than my ALO continental 2
Bass : ALO has better bass impact
Separation : Fostex HP V1 has better music separation
Soundstage : Fostex HP V1 has wider soundstage
IMO

You are right it was Fostex TH 900

Please try Chord Hugo in Tokyo , I am sure you love it biggrin.gif

 

Hi Rudi,

 

Actually I did get a chance to try the Hugo at the Fujiya show last month. I brought along my Alpha Dogs to that event. Timelord (distributors of Chord) had a presentation of which I attended - I really should put the pix I took in the Chord Hugo thread.

Maybe the ADs were the wrong choice for the Hugo but I felt the whole signature to be almost too clean-cut surgical. I didn't bring my TH-900's as the last time I took it to a show its swivel broke :p. The Hugo is a nice DAC/Amp but I personally feel that a more "musical" (i.e. less analytical) headphone/earphone is more suited to it for my sonic tastes.

Awesome! Is there a thread anywhere on what materials to get and how to make a really high quality LOD? I am very interested in this. Something comparable to an Alo LOD? Thanks!

In Rudi's dictionary,"or" & "and" mean the same thing when it comes to buying gear. Hehe

Hi Sean

All it matter of synergy in audio gear
I love my Hugo , first about the sound quality and second about the flexibility to pair with my other amps or dac or dap
IMO

Ak 240 in my opinion is improvement from AK 100 , sound quality very detail and better clarity compare to ak 100 / 120' , very wide soundstage , bass impact is less than ak 120
Overall is neutral and natural sound quality
If I pair with Hugo , I get the balance sound quality , with improvement in bass region and sound fuller
I like ak 240 too
But I hate the high price for DAP biggrin.gif

Rudi you should also try the AK240 with balanced cable, might make you forget the high price :D  I really cannot find an better pocketable device for use on the go....
