Gear mentioned in this thread:
The Kemet film caps have improved the sound stage, 3D imaging and extensions of the lowers & bass. This direct-out mod itself purifies the sound and renders more details. But during that process the caps make a big difference from my experience.
Modding the 5.5g's has brought me the fun and rewarding experience.
I also have and still own a RX MK2, but the Leckerton is clearly the winner in my opinion.
Not a great photo, but my current rig: iMod (with internal caps) > Fiio LOD (want to replace with a low-profile one for convinence) > Pico Slim > FitEar F111 with Whiplash TWcu cable. ALO Rx MKI looking on.
Should have a TTVJ Slim coming in soon to check out. Still interested in the Vorzuge Pure and RSA Shadow. Would be willing to do a temporary trade with people in the US if they have those amps. Let me know if you'd be interested since I really would like to hear those amps!
Source : IPhone 4 S
Dac : Cyberlabs Class - dB new version 2.00 Vrms
Amp : Wagnus Epsilon S
Headphone : Fostex TH 900
Cable : Moon Audio Silver Dragon V1 mini USB to Lod
Wagnus mini to mini
SQ : Audiophile desktop SQ
This is a beautiful setup. I always wonder what esw11ltd sound like with AK100
Mass Kobo 385 (which itself is large) seems small by comparison
How is the SQ comparison between Mass Kobo 385 vs Wagnus Epsilon S ?
Kobo 385 cost more than Wagnus Epsilon S , am I right Sean.
I love the SQ from my Wagnus
Yes you are right
Looks so simple like cheap amp , but if heard the SQ you can feel this high end SQ
Every source you pair with Wagnus sound so good .
Lol. Never ending story... that's audio life.
Anyways, I love seeing your rig rudi. Makes me want to buy the TH900. Your setup looks so nice.
I love the design too actually, not cheaply looks and yet it exudes an aura of $1000+ ......i think !
Very nice set up
Your Venture Craft mini to mini is like mine , I scary to bend
I haven't heard xduoo xp1, how is the SQ ?
Thank you kimvictor
Fostex TH 900 is the best close headphone to date .
You won't regret to buy Fostex TH 900 .
Very easy to drive .
If you give better set up , your Fostex TH 900 shine more follow your set up .
