no kidding, I was expecting it to be like $90 or something, turns out to be $200 eek.gif

A tera player and ie800 would be like $2000 at least Ahab. Bit more than 200!

I meant the zippo amp, I should've checked the hidden pic first, I'm an idiot -.-

Haha. For a balanced (btl) amp I do not think two hundread bones is to big a ask. It is also a design you will not see anywhere else.

oh I don't have much experience with those yet, I'm just saying it "looks" like a premiumly-cased cmoy amp but is actually something more grander

Many thanks......

Looking to add to your collection?

Zippo amp looks really nice...small...

 

I wonder how does inside look like?

 

I cannot find from their website...

post #2243 of 17432

They do not actually have them as they are not the designers of the amp and the designer is on holiday. This is a real shame but hiss is minimal on IEMs (even though gain is doubled because of BTL circuitry) so i do not think output impedance is over the top.

 

I think this is a hot topic so shall i start a thread over in the portable amps section, are there going to be other potential buyers to share impressions with us? If so i will start a thread

I had no idea the Tera Player was nearly $1200 USD! Looking through their website I saw it listed at 840 euros and though it was a type-o...obviously some might view it as worth it since they already own them but I just can't justify that type of expenditure on a DAP that doesn't even have a UI lol.

It has UI, just not a GUI. wink_face.gif If you ever get a chance to check one out, I highly recommend it.

Haha I stand corrected. I wish there was a cheap way to try it out, I have a hard time imagining better sound coming out of what I already hear from my Z2, but if it sounds better than the Z2 then it must be amazing!

It has quite a usable navigation system add it happens. Sounds unreal of course although I did sense a slight bad roll off that could be as bit off putting but transparency was the best I have ever heard.

So here my pictures of my first portable rig:

  • iPod Classic 6G 80GB, Rockboxed
  • Fiio E17 + Fiio LOD
  • Shure SE215

 

Off-Topic: I'm in need for some upgrade advice for best bang for the buck upgrade. Which part to upgrade? Budget between 200-400EUR. Not completely satisfied with the SQ. Bit narrow and dark, bit dull sounding. Advice here: iPod 6g 80GB - E17 combo- not satisfied - recommendations?

 

And when I'm at home I plug these AKG K550:
