You have made a fair point and to my ears so far, I cannot detect any differences given that I have converted all my files to Apple Lossless format using dbPoweramp

 

Having said that, I will conduct more listening tests with full sized cans and speakers to compare below:

 

1. onkyo HD player playing files stored on ipod touch storage with airplane mode set to on. This is to check if shutting down the wifi on ipod touch will yield better usb audio out performance

 

2. 8player wifi reading the same files stored on wireless hdd and check if the usb audio out is being affected

 

I am thinking the Hugo is so excellent that it will eliminate the noise, but I can only conclude if I listen to it more in different settings (probably quieter environment).

 

 

God, I wish I have more long weekends for me to geek out this stuff....

Seems a lot of us drink brewskies whilst listening to our rigs - should be a thread dedicated to it.

Transportable Rig : This is my office / home based rig for use with my DX50 / PC / iDevice

DX50 -> mini coaxial into DB2 -> 3.5 to 3.5 into Duet -> Balance HPL cable to HD600







At the moment I am using a whiplash audio mini to mini between the DB2 and Duet, but should have a Hirose to RSA balanced connector arriving any day soon for a fully balance setup :-)

I find that the supplied mini coaxial cable that came with the DX50 to be very difficult to manage and unpliable.....I'm not sure whether I can get an alternative and slightly longer mini coax cable to use to connect the DX50 to the DB2.

Initial impressions are that the dual Wolfson DACS in the DB2 are a distinct sound improvement over the DX50s one.

3. Bit perfect high res and DSD and any other large digital file gimmicks
4. Excellent SQ because of Hugo and 1p2

ipod touch 5 (onkyo HD  or 8player (wifi player)) > ipad cck > some cheap micro usb cables (In fact, I compared around 4 cheap usb cables in different lengths using HD800 and concluded this cable produces the smoothest sound) > Chord Hugo > Furutech (6.3 > 3.5mm adapter) > Tralucent silver/gold cable > Tralucent 1plus2 > Ortofon tips (Large)

The only missing piece is the uber cable but such is life...
Do you commute in the back of Rolls because I am not carrying my Hugo and a 12 piece stack around in the subway wink.gif

Thanks for that Matey :o

 

When I reterminated the cable I closed the RSA connector and then needed to get it open again, in the process, snapping the casing. The tape is a stop gap until I can get another connector and some heatshrink.

please disregard my previous post becos my portable system failed.... :( and a co-worker passed away after long battle of cancer....

 

today is not a good day.... and I am going to bed...

 

I dont travel in any luxury cars. I am just the annoying guy who takes two seats on subway so to put a car battery to power the portable system...

If you can, listen to it yourself, then decide if it is worth it or not.
