post #4951 of 23630


iPod classic 160GB, Fiio E07K, Fiio L9 LOD, Shure SE215Ltd. I'm already obsessed and just starting out. Sorry for the bad camera pic. I just wanted a photo of my rig on here. I am also looking for a better LOD. Thanks

Nice rig bud :-)

How do the SE535 sound with the stock AK100?

Do the SE535 fit in the pelican case as well as the AK100 when not used? I was thinking of getting for mine but ideally want to keep my AK100 and Tzar 350 in it together.

Thanks, man!

SE535+AK100+cable fit into Pelican 1010 prfectly. The silly thing I did is buying some special foam pad for cutting. This case and rig do not need it. The case is lined with something  like rubber and nothing rattles and moves inside.

As for SE535ltd-japan - I'm loving the sound.

But I prefer it with the first Listrid's patch - I read you had some issues with your AK100 because of that. With the patch the sound is more dynamic, the bass and localization of instruments are awsome!

Also I\d never thought that upgrading a cable would make such a difference...

That would be Go-Dap DD Socket 1 LE with ALO the National. My new Go-Dap TT is in the second.

You're from UK? Nice to see Forza doing well internationally (known him mostly more locally, from Polish audio forums). ;-)

In the end you are probably right bro but I like to MYTHbust, think of it like this

Apple put that awesome dac in the ipod video because it was more entertainment based (watching videos/movies) and they accidentally made an awesome music player smily_headphones1.gif

But... The first gen itouch which came very shortly after the 5.5 was even more entertainment based (so you see my interest now?)

More than likely apple had some kind of a contract deal with wolfson so a high end dac would probably cost about the same to manufacture as a crappy one, you know they're goal was only to improve

So I went ahead and sent my 5.5 out for an internal Imod and also bought a 32gb 1st gen itouch in mint condition.

I will construct a very honest and detailed comparison between an IMOD 5.5, a regular unmoded 5.5, a 4th gen itouch 64gb, and a 1st gen itouch. All will use line out, same amp/switches, same cans, same exact music files, same LOD cable

I know the itouch has better wiring and circuitry than any ipod video, ... This shall be EPIC

Everyone says the 1st itouch sounds like crap but c'mon man REALLY!? Why would any other itouch sound better?

Look forward to the comparison. Sounds great.

Agreed. I bought mine new in '06, and I will never sell it. It now has a new battery (easy replacement, just don't break the headphone jack connector in the process) and a 120gb hard drive. Might go SSD when the prices drop low enough.
