post #8356 of 14960

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 #8357 of 14960

^^^ 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.

Heaven II + hippo biscuit + wav = my new best iem setup.

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?

With Dave Brubeck - Take Five (FLAC 24bit).....hmmm...i need my whiskey !

Sorry, not so portable !  let's say... transportable : RWAK100 + TU-05 + TH900

 

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

 

Recently I added and some damping material at some strategic places 

 

  

 

and also added on the back an XLR (NOT balanced) plug, just because the 1/8 jack is Sooo fragile  (OK it was not so easy because it's crammed inside).

Congrats, very few things will be as satisfying as the feeling when you finally have find the setup that gives you smiles whenever you press the play button.
