Hehe
Maybe its a rock or something hard to make a space betwen dap and amp. In order to protect the interconnect cable

when size is no matter anymore...here's my another lovely 3 stacks setup...

 

IPC (wav files) + Fostex HP-P1 as DAC + ALO MK3plus + Beyer T1

 

 

 

 

 

looks like a real men's rig..heh..:D 

post #8359 of 13164

^^^ I like that one...

 

 

I always thought the HP-P1 was larger, but I guess it's no too bad in perspective...

Any rig with the HP-P1 is a keeper!

My current portable set-up. RWAK100 and JH11 with Fiio cable.

iBasso DX50 > Onest11 Pure Silver 3.5mm InterconnectJDS Labs C58N SPC Mini-XLR to 3.5mm Headphone Cable > AKG K240 Mk. II 

 

 

Sometimes..a cable can really make the difference between an amazing sounding rig, and an augasmic sounding rig. :p

Woah, that's a really awesome photo!

But did you blind test it? wink.gif

Not yet:) I'll have to give it some "burn-in" time before I determine anything for certain.

As of now, the only slightly noticeable things are that it sounds a touch brighter than the stock copper cables; which is what I was really after. smily_headphones1.gif

Don't forget to do proper volume matching though. A louder sound tends to make anything sound "better;" people don't even seem to consider this when evaluating sound differences between cables. As in the case with the FiiO RC-MH1 cable, whose sound quality I still need to write about, initially it sounded better than the stock cables but then I realised there was a difference in volume. Silver is a better conductor of electricity when compared to copper, so perhaps there's an impedance difference just like the purer copper of the RC-MH1.

Speaking of which, this has been my portable rig for the past week.

Nice rig:)

But yeah, when I test/compare two cables, I'll tend to level it to where I find it sounds best at the "sweet spot", so in that way, it makes it easier for me to see which one is better. I understand we have impedance stuff in between, but I'm no sound science guy to worry too much about that.

I just saw this on the Musica Acoustics website, Vorzuge Pure 2, has anyone heard this amp smily_headphones1.gif?? If you have, can you share some impressions?
