Regarding the ZX-1, are you happy as-is or will you change to carry a stack with portable amp?

 

George, you are more than welcome to try my ZX1. Anytime next week.

 

I adore mine with any pair of FitEars customs......

I use it as it is. The only time I use an external amp is when I need to (i.e. for the Alpha Dogs).

Assuming that the picture there isn't what being tested, then maybe Setup A should be more defined as :-
Transport: Sony WM-ZX1

Source/Amp: PHA-2


Set up B :
Transport: Sony WM-ZX1
Source: PHA-2
Amp: Mass Ko Bo 385

 
But if the 1st pic is really what's being tested (not knowing what the back of that looks like), then Rudi is really double amping and that could be a reason why Setup A doesn't sound so good.


P.S. Did I just refer to myself as the 3rd person again?!

Thank you Sean and George
You are right I make in set up A double amping

George :

I will try lod to mini follow your recommendation for my Sony WM ZX 1
Like I done for my I devices

Looking good Rudi! You really are one lucky fellow! 

How does the Duet perform up against the SR71B, National, RX3 & Intruder etc?

Sure you can, but some might improve more from it than others. Only thing is that you need 4 wires end-to-end.

What is the mp3 player in that photo? I love the look of it..:-)

Xuelin IHIFI 760. It leans towards warm and musical. And it weighs 250 grams if I remember correctly. Takes a Samsung galaxy S4 battery, supports true line out for amping. You could literally kill someone with it - it's that heavy.

I was reading about that player and by the sounds of it it's probably very similar to the fiio x3 when you use line out, the only downside of the Xuelin IHIFI 760 is that is only expands to 32gb
