That said, the iems (less cable) is just one of the components along the pipeline tho. The final sound product is by trial and error. One has to be able to identify whether a component has the potential for greatness. For example, my 1st amp ever bought, the Alo Rx Mk2, was lifeless (to me of course). I shook my head that piece could be sold for that price at that time. After I tried J3, Alo RX MK2 and 4A.i (all sold long time ago), I knew how hype could spread here at HF or one man's trash is another man's' treasure. Thru diy, I have found the greatness to my ears, because it allowed me to try things at my disposal. Am I the 1st head-fi'er who dared to send 2 volts to amp risking loss of both amp and iems? Yeah I was crazy. LOL.
