Thanks. the pic was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S5.

For the moment I lug around my A17 naked. I often think about getting a case for it but then I look at it and see how good it looks without one I forget about it for the moment and save myself some money

Whenever I look at rigs I can't afford I just keep thinking "It isn't worth it. It won't sound that good." until I believe it :regular_smile :

Thanks. I always try to go for "Simple yet excellent" whenever portable stuff is involved.

Nice how different is the sound without the iFi?

post #16180 of 21934

Haven't tried the HD800 straight out of the AK100ii yet. I have compared the iFi to the AK100ii with my Angies, and I would say it's a wash, both sound excellent, so I likely wouldn't pack it with me if I'm using the IEMs.

 

updated: Tried the HD800 straight out of the AK100ii and while there was more volume than I anticipated, there was a huge falloff in dynamics. Everything seemed sluggish and flat.

I have the AK100ii, and have been thinking about the Angies are they as good as everyone says they are would you say there overall a flat sound signature.

With the SE cable I would call them neutral to warm with the bass attenuation at the 0 position, but dialed up they become much more "fun". I found them a little more clinical with the Balanced cable, but that could also be a function of the slightly less power output in balanced with the AK100ii.

I know this is WAY off topic (sorry), but how are the Ho's LS3/5As? I've been thinking about getting a pair before returning to Europe. There also seem to be a few manufacturers in Guangdong selling 15 ohm LS3/5A clones (but goodness knows where they get the fake B110 and T27...).

I didn't even know you could still source Bextrene!
