@~Magg86, may I ask why you are using two E11's on one rig?
post #1355 of 11499
I must say Magg86, those are some interesting interconnects.

I'm still searching for my perfect portable rig - right now it seems like the beginners' setup below is holding me over, until I source a good amp and DAC (and have the money to splurge on them, too!)...

 

 

Cowon Z2 - FiiO E11 - Sennheiser IE80

I am sure most people could find a use for it hehehe, it is a very nice item! Your rig looks like it is doing a nice job as it is so there is no rush in upgrading. Instead of upgrading tiny increases at a time, now just wait until you can get something end game!

I think USB sounds a little bit better (in intense listening, not so much casual listening) and coaxial and optical i have not yet tried but i would expect to be better for a few reasons and the fact they also support up to 24/96 when usb and BT are just 24/44.1. I have not run it out of battery yet so can not say ;) Bluetooth is getting better though like with the UE9000!

Bluetooth transfers digitally so the loss shouldn't be great if any. I always blamed the DAC in those bluetooth devices.

post #1358 of 11499

it is nothing horrendous, one may think it is a bit gimmicky but it separates it from anything else, adds huge compatibility, iPod Touch/iPhone/android/any phone really and also sounds better than most things i have ever hear!

Pretty cool. Was reading your UE9000 review are you going completely wireless? :p, although shame younger siblings do not appear to have wireless bluetooth (have no need for nc)

post #1360 of 11499

If i was to i would have to get a wireless transmitter for connecting the UE9000 to the 1866 which is no biggie. If this is possible (i think so right) then i will at one point for the hell of it but i do not use the 9000 enough to rush into getting one right now. Also the 9000 is in NC/V Shaped mode in bluetooth....

 

Yes you do have to pay a premium for wireless

Imo that wireless DECODER is guilty of the sound degradation, along with what UE intentionally designed to alter the FR. The transmission loss shouldn't be big, it is the decoding's fault.

xd2-53.nice,

 

Just wondering why you are double amping? 

And does it make any improvements??? :/

post #1363 of 11499

Next set of gear to listen to and review...

 

Ortofon MHd-Q7 already done, VentureCraft Go-DAP DD Socket 1 (with Muses 01 OpAmp), Tralucent 1Plus2 with silver cables, and VentureCraft crazy thick gauge interconnects/LODs.
