Still, they sounded better than all my other C/IEMs at the time. But now that I'm a bit more seasoned, I can tell you that the 8.A don't do it for me anymore. That's why they're gone, and the SE5 are coming! 


Obviously, YMMV.

Pico power vs RS 71 A

High :
Pico power : has slightly better detail in high
RS 71 A : high is very good too

Mid :
Pico power : has clearer mid and clean mid
RS 71 A : has sweeter mid like tube

Bass :
Pico power : has better in mid bass region and faster speed
RS 71 A : has deeper bass

Soundstage :
Pico power : has wider soundstage
RS 71 A : has deeper soundstage

Black background :
These two are on par

Separation :
Pico power : has better separation
RS 71 A : is very good too.

Conclusion :
These two amps has their own character , it is matter of synergy with your source
That's why I keep these two amps for me
Pico power has more power and faster speed than RS 71 A

IMO

Wow, the portable towers of power have grown in a few years.  Awesome rigs!!!

 

I gave up walking around with portable amps a few years ago.  When on the move some iems and a dap is great nowadays for me.  However, I miss my ipods with some amping and giving them line-out love.  I feel they are a great source whether you are walking around or sitting. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to put all these huge LODs I purchased years ago to good use

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you guys don't mind me posting my non-portable ipod stations...beerchug.gif
