Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI) - Page 879

post #13171 of 14743

At one point, I was using my FiiO E11 with the iAudio X5L which was very bulky and weighed over 300g. I used these together with my AKG K550s.

My X5L has now given up on both the line out and the headphone socket so it is no good any more. I now use the FiiO X3 and that sounds great without a portable amplifier added. The E11 makes a small improvement to the X3 with my headphones though.

Haha someone noticed then...

She's called Princess and she's a Netherland Dwarf/Mini Rex Cross.

And she loves TV its true!

 

Well my latest Toxic Cables investment, The Toxic Cables Balanced Viper arrived for my IE8's today.

Thank You Frank for yet Another epic cable!

Very Very well made, And using the IE8's in this configuration really brings them to life!

I mean they're good iem's anyway, But the balanced output through this SPC adds sparkle in all the right spots.

Its taken me a few years to learn about the terminology related to the hobby and what it all means etc, 

But I can safely say that the IE8's set up like this, Have a far wider sound stage, Bass is tight and controlled and the bass extension is very good, 

I no longer need to tweak the bass setting on the IE8's themselves, Thats "Zero'd" out now.

Highs are crisp and clear, And midrange is present, Smooth but not too edgy. ( How I like it )

Vocals feel more natural now and are more forward.

 

Anyway, I'll leave you with some pics....

Thank You!

Yes he is very cool indeed...

For a ten year old he has some fantastic loves/hobbies.......

He Listens to Jazz & Classical, Loves cars, Especially Subaru's & Classic Dubs.

He already has a Mac Mini in his room along with a Technics Micro Hifi, Turntable, iPod and a few pairs of cans.

He knows the difference between great and bad sound.....

He can play the drums and bongos/tom-toms at a very competent level.

And he loves Star Wars, Star Trek and LOTR :) :) :)

A Very Proud Dad I am! 

:) :) :)
