Current music rig - Heir Audio Rendition 1 -> AK120 -> ASG-2

I don't usually amp the AK120 but thought I would give it a try.

Here's what I'm rocking atm. ASG-2 and the well known Colorfly C3.

So, what do you think of the combination? I've been thinking about picking up the C3 player for a little bit of time now. Granted I have a RWAK100 and dont expect it to be on the same level, but I'm still curious

I personally think they sound really good together Kenman, I'm using C3 especially with ASG-2 over a few other sources such as Studio V, Rocco BA and the now aging Cowon J3 by choice. C3 has slightly cool tonality which gives ASG-2 a slight lift, it's also rather capable in soundstage width and instrument separation so it keeps everything well layered. it tends to bring vocals a little froward and can be slightly mid-centric, though it's pretty neat for $100. You'll need a bit of volume to get ASG-2 moving and extract all their clarity though there's no complaints here, anything over 35/40 you're pushing the limits of what I'd listen to for extended time. It has good textured bass and a certain timbre you'd call the Colorfly house sound. Works well with ASG-2 and 1Plus2 as well.

Just remember the user interface is very basic and you only listen by album folder one at time, about 18 hours a charge. The player is not perfect but the sound is to be admired. I've had mine for about one year now and I've seen many other players come and go like iPod video, HM-601, a few Cowons, though the little C3 isn't about to leave. Good build quality too, metal frame, holds some weight to it. Amps well too, measures in at 0.4ohm output impedance.

What do you think? I've got an X3 on the way and my first pair will be with the GR07 BE (which I've read is similar in SQ to the 400).

I think you'll be alright with the VSonics.

It really depends on your preferred sound. These have a clean, articulate sound that doesn't offend. It's on the slightly warmer side of neutral, decent sparkle in the highs... Bass is not as much as the SE215s but it's enough. The bass of the RE-400s is faster tho. Doesn't linger as much as the SE215's. 2 different sound sigs... I like the Hifimans more. But again, preference is subjective...
