post #4861 of 23636

Thoroughly enjoying the simplicity of a stand-alone DAP. So far, loving the sound with this pairing. Will need to test out some of my other toys with it, but I'm quite impressed with the SQ of the new AK120.

I haven't heard Westone Star tips
The shipping cost to indonesia is to expensive about 35 Usd , that's why I hold to buy Westone Star tips .

Pre-amp stage is Raytheon 6111SQ Sub MT tube. For power-amp stage, they use NJM 8080 that surface mount onto the PCB, so it can't be replaced. My pre-order deal also come with dual Raytheon 5707 tube but they will ship later this month due to last minute modification.

 

My initial impression on TT is that it's warm and very smooth. Clarity is not as good as LME49860.

 

Here is the inside.

Pretty much the same between X and TT. On the box, it said 80mW at 32Ω but it's actually 120mW at 32Ω.

Great rig, I have the same apart from the Uber. How is it in terms in ergonomics ? (the sound I am not asking...) Could you use it on the go ?

I wish, but I can say with 100% certainty... you wouldn't want to take this cable outside. It might be well suited for traveling, meaning in an area were you can sit down, not moving around, but the one (rather larger) con that I have with the cable is the ergonomics and fragility. Even adjusting and moving my head (bopping my head to the beat biggrin.gif) can bring some weird strain on the cable which is a definite no-no. The sound is amazing, so if you are okay with a cable that keeps you stationary (for the most part) than the uBer might be for you. I haven't tried it on the go yet, but I'm scared to try, so if you get it, YMMV.

Hi Rudi,
You can buy the Westone Star tips from an eBay seller in Canada. I believed it is ard US$19, with postage included. Got mine from him. I used them on my SE215 Ltd
