Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI) - Page 142

Does anyone remember "Dr head mini"?
I found this from my closet. I think i bought it almost 8 years ago when it first came out. I was listening to some music using this setup and it was pretty good (make sound fuller than clip's)

For everyone asking, the photo features my sig plus a Heir 3.Ai kindly loaned by a UK owner for my comparison. My comparison and impressions therein have been posted on a UK forum but am unsure on Head-fi rules about linking. Briefly then, 4.Ai: Fantastic across the board and best imaging / soundstage my ears have heard in a universal. It makes you realise the SE535 and PFE 232 are 2D and linear. 3.Ai cannot match either. Tiny bit more at the bottom end and it would be nearly perfect. Accordingly still a niche being filled by my PFE 232 (or 3.Ai for that matter)

Well.. my rigs aren't as awesome as rudi's, but they get the job done. It's a work in progress! Currently getting ready to have the 8.A's reshelled.

That's how you get the best out of your Terra. /s

Actually, the use of an external amp in this case is desirable (no sarcasm).

Oh skeptics.

Nothing to do with skepticism.

Also wouldnt double amping just add to the "problem"?

Anyhoo, my friend has just had the most amazing ideas for a portable rig... He should post it here, now smily_headphones1.gif

You are most definitely right Skamp. The digital volume control means you are losing a few bits at low volumes. Outputting to an analog headphone stage while at max volume means you're getting all the bits you for the sound.

No a skeptic. I notice an increase in clarity and overall experience when I use a desktop amp or a portable amp.

You only lose 1 bit every ~6dB. It's unlikely to be audible (I wouldn't swear on it though).

Anyway, my point was that an amp would correct the high output impedance and enable the Tera Player to behave correctly with all headphones / IEMs. It would help reveal the Tera Player's "true sound", if you will.
