Then apply for the NH900 at the least if you want an almost hi-end unit without battery hassles as it has an AA attachemnt too.

If you ever feel the urge to sell, you know where to callwink_face.gif.

 

I have a couple of NH1 and they sure wouldn't mind company.

And what do you know, it sounds pretty good. wink.gif This R051 has some serious bass punch when engaged. You don't find bass like this in our MP3 players today. Overall, I almost rate the sound that comes out of R051 HIGHER than the Hifiman HM-601 headphone out performance. I've created a hybrid of HM-601 warm sig and Sony house sound. biggrin.gif

The only problem is I kind of don't want to become attached to this because the battery's, discs and transfer times will cause me a slight hassle.

I'll transfer some Colorfly CK4 line out on a disc next. Thanks for reminding us about the old school gikigill wink.gif It sounds pretty damn fine.



(sorry for drifting off topic, but hey' it's portable and also a rig)


You Sir, have created a monster. The bass on the R501 is very smooth and punchy without being boomy.

 

Try it with an amp and let me know. Maybe its just the simplicity of the MD that it "just works" and for quicker transfer, rip to WAV and copy over to MD through Sonicstage.

 

The speeds aren't that bad and the sound is good. I use FLAC and sometimes convert them to WAV, import into Sonicstage and copy to the MD thru USB.

Kind of a low quality photo from an iDevice. Had a meet with a fellow Head-Fi member in Akihabara today :-

 

CLAS-dB+RxMk3, Go-DAP 4.0 (behind), DX100, MHd-Q7 amp, Go-DAP X LME49860 OpAmp (behind), RWAK100, Signature Pros, 1Plus2 Hybrids

Nope...line out of the CLAS is behind. Can't be seen. I'm guessing you're talking about a spare LOD on next to the CLAS that's completely unplugged?

post #1615 of 13896

Nope the one thats plugged in lol.

You have your LOD going to this socket.

But this socket is also an output is it not???

 

EDIT, Im looking at a different model arent I? LOL Sorry dude, MY BADdeadhorse.gif

Lol :D. Yeah. CLAS -dB (balanced). Yeah, with the new models, they moved the coax from the back to the front. I guess that's what threw you off. NP.

That if I chose to, I can add a bit of warmth etc via the EQ.

As for using it as a portable DAC, It is possible to use it as a Portable DAC with some 'Droid devices, 

Though at this stage I think there are still some niggles.

Anyway, For me at least the E17 is definately my Go-To amp now, And always my DAC I use with my iBook G4.

 

+1. In addition, the E17 hisses much less with sensitive IEMs (like the Westone UM3X) than the E11 did. The EQ settings are also very nice to have on the go, in order to avoid using the distortion-prone iPod EQ presets (talking specifically about the 5.5 gen iPod here).
