I simply cannot work my camera around Hisound's Rocco BA, the gloss front finish is terrible to work with.
I need special filter or lens to kill the reflections.
Anyway, my main rig is finally complete, I use Hisound's Rocco BA by choice over Studio V and DX50 for Rhapsodio's RDB+ v1 Mini.
The synergy is just to clean and crisp compared to my other players, these two will stay tied together as one.
Finally completed yesterday after my SPC 7N OFHC cable arrived!
Yes looks much better than the blue cable that was on their previously, the white and purple go well together.
Believe me the Rocco out performs DX50, with this paring, much clearer and detailed, airy, better coherency.
1Plus2 is better, higher end sound, stronger technically and the bass is unmatched (1Plus2 dynamics and bass impact are just to strong) however for a fraction of the price I think $400 for RDB+ v1 Mini is still a good 75-80% what 1Plus2 offers IMO. They certainly sound like they're similar gene pool or blood line. I could of purchased 1Plus2 unit but stayed with $400 hybrid for now, rather than outlay an extra $800 odd dollars on top for 1Plus2. I'll stay on this and meet a sane level of diminishing returns.
Very happy with the Mini, I wouldn't of bought it otherwise. My decision made after demoing both 1Plus2 and RDB+ v1 Mini for lengthy amounts of time.
I use a crystal piccolino 3.5 interconnect between my AK120 and amp (various Govibe Portatube, Alo Rxmk3b+, RSA 71a) to drive either my Fitear TG334 or Fostex TH900.
In my view and to my ears, the cable improves the sound in almost all aspects, most noticeably in rounding off the bass. The clarity is also helped a great deal.
