Do you know if there's much difference between the 4s and the 40s?

Not much difference. The 40s are just slightly better in the treble region.

Why do you have this Walkman twice? One for the Mrs.? 

They are different players.

One is the ZX1 the other one is the F886.

The day-by-day i only take the iPod/Dac combo plus the IEMs. 

 

If i know ill be more than a day away form home I'll also take the blue bag with the extras. 

 

Everything used to be in one singe case, it was a perfect fit, but so unnecessary and HUGE:confused_face:.

 

Well, taking only the ipod/dac and iems seems more reasonable.

 

Most of the time I only carry around some IEMs and my phone. Sometimes the Sony A17 tags along but only if I know I'll have some listening time available.

For work I take my Fiio E17 and my XBA-H1s.

There's only one reason why this amp has a grill - Tubes. Welcome Cypherlabs Trio.

Fresh out of the box only after 20 mins dude :D.

OK, (almost) non-sonic thoughts. Nice shiny glossy case. A move way from the traditional CLAS texture. Attracts fingerprints. Gain (even on low) is like wow, is that really low gain? Not gonna try high on my IEMs, maybe when I get home to some higher impedance cans. A little warm but not as warm as the ALO Continental Dual Mono (granted that it's a DAC Amp with dual tubes, I don't know about the Trio yet). Dimensions actually match the AK240.

How's the Aurender Flow as a straight up DAC?

 

I'm considering something in this form factor for my Liquid Carbon...

I don like to keep music on my phone for some weird reason...

 

I do however used a old iPhone 4 as a iPod for the time being, but only for when i go for a run or to the gym.

 

I want so very much to purchase a Fiio X1, but I leave in South Africa, and the only way to get it is via eBay. the problem is that the SA postal service is always in strike, I got a new cable for my SE535 and new tips 4 months ago and it has not yet arrived. So I will wait till some of my friends go to USA or the postal service here get back to normal... To leave in a 3rd world country has its **** sides sometimes... Pretty country tho!!

Funny you asked that. I was comparing my Flow to the Invicta (v1.0) & honestly the RoV of the Flow is high. I'm not saying I'm ready to sell my Invicta yet but I'm kinda like questioning myself, the output is just not so convenient (it's using the 1/4" jack).
