post #11881 of 17426

Recently decided to downsize the portable rig. No more rubber bands and stacks for me! Pretty happy with the results!

I didn't think Rockbox was comparable with 6th Generation iPod's?

Due to some circumstances, I ended up with a copper cable which changed the entire sound )




Now with the new cable though........... I couldn't stop listening and the "just one more song" syndrome kicks in. I don't wanna offend anyone but unfortunately id have to say this pairing rivals SD3 with stock cable. Only huge diff is that with SD3, the vocals and background is extremely contrasted. Not so much with this pairing





But on the whole, as a ciem, pretty satisfying, although my next iem will be SD3 and the one after that is most likely a TOTL universal. Things do change though and I might be wrong about my plans.

Today I have the chance to hear ALO International +

The different between ALO International and International +

International + :
DAC Is IDevice like iPhone 5 s and IPad Air ready for use

The physik is lighter

Can be charge with micro USB .

My short impression :

High : more detail , better clarity
Mid : more clear and better pronounce
Bass : has better bass detail , but not as deep as Imternational
Separation : better than international
Soundstage : wider , the depth International is better

Overall : SQ has improvement in detail and clarity , wider soundstage , I remember sound character like my Duet , Duet has more balance

IMO

But, a rockboxed iPod wont connect with any Cypher Labs products.  Of course, its easy to un-rockbox....

I'm glad it still works with the CCK, even at a limit of 24/96...
