post #5416 of 12946
I wouldn't recommend using one of those rigid 1/4" to 1/8" adapters. It puts a lot of strain on the HP jack, which is probably just attached to the circuit board. You would be better off using a Grado adapter (good quality and reasonably-priced), or making your own adapter cable with a Neutrik line socket and plug. If you always use the 580s in this rig, why not just re-terminate the cable with a good quality 1/8" plug (e.g. Viablue, Switchcraft or Neutrik)?

I probably use the 580s less than half the time. I get the best SQ out of them but I don't really want to carry that much gear around 24/7. Re-terminating isn't a bad idea though...

Loving the porn music bro, that's a sweet looking rig, I bet it sounds luscious. Is that a balanced LOD? Do you hear the difference with IEMs?

**EDIT** After watching the video again that's not a balanced LOD at all right? The AlgoRhythm Solo just has the USB there instead?

My Turn 

 

With my 2 day old ASG-2s !!! 

iPod Classic 80GB -> ALO Copper Cryo LOD -> C&C X02 Amp -> Aurisonics ASG-2 

 

this ASG-2s...have surpassed so many TOTL universal IEMs and one custom ( customs are difficult to rate as it is extremely difficult for me to find demo units locally ...) that i have tried the list include the SE535 , TF10 , JH-6 , Westone 4 ,westone 3  , UM3x , Heir Audio 4.Ai and 3.Ai , tzars , H200 , ER4s , EX1000 , X10i and the GR07... gotta admit i have tried all of these at one point of time and 4 of these at the same time with the ASG-2s and the ASG-2s were leaps and bounds ahead them all...

I keep switching between my Tzar 350 and the ASG2 and I must say that the ASG2 do seem to be the better all round IEM. The Tzars whilst sounding extremely detailed also seem to sound extremely anaemic after the ASG2. I listen to a wide variety of musical genres and haven't found anything that the ASG2 doesn't sound good with.

Where would you order the ASG-2? I can only find the custom fit version.

If ASG-2s is leaps and bounds ahead of the EX1000, then I will have a problem with the EX even tho not now.

I got mine from a local retailer, you. Can email dale from aurisonic and they can arrange an order for you. Got to say this morning I am spending time with my buddy Joe at Hans dinner and he has the TG334... On his portable setup ipod classic hp-p1 and translucent T1, I could not hear a difference we were both shocked tried it with his setup and mine, could not tell a major difference,every extension was the same, I thought his Tg334 was defective, then we went back and tried it on his desktop setup only then we saw a difference only on high end equipment will the tg334 show a difference but even that difference does not warrant the $800 extra you have to pay...if I had to pay a price for that difference to matter it would only be $300 more expensive and that's being generous, so the asg-2 should be priced in the $1000 section or the TG334 in the $800 range but instead the asg-2 is $500 and the TG334 is $1300... Going to wait for my local retailer to have the demo unit for the 1Plus2 from translucent another iem priced around the $1200++ price range

It sounds good for the price, the bass boost is a ZO bass, you can get a free laser engraving of your choice, and you can re-program the digital potentiometer.

And it all has that in a nice, truly portable form factor.

Finally almost done with my rig. Got the O-rings today to tie the rig together. Just want to replace the Fiio LOD with a low-profile one and that's it. Looking for an RSA Shadow too to compare to the Pico Slim. The F111 pouch is actually a perfect size for a bag to store the whole rig, with the UE tin for the IEMs.

The rsa shadow was a little warmer than the slim. But imaging, drive and bass impact went to the slim
