I have leckerton for right now... But really not sure if it is a right choice to replace it for a T1+OAC combo for extra.

Do you guys hear any hiss from T1? I have mostly low impedance IEMs/Headphones.

No hiss at all from T1, but when I plug in my 5.5G iPod, I get hiss from the iPod (or LOD?) which I initially thought was the T1. T1 alone - no hiss.

All recorded music will exhibit some sort of hiss. Likely, it is not hiss from the LOD, but from the music. The iPod 5 also has quite a bit of hiss from the headphone out, similar to a Cowon D2 and iPod nano 3G. Good sound, but more than normal hiss. 

 

The T1 does hiss, but levels are on the low side. It isn't as silent as the Pico Slim, but few are. It is a little less than the Vorzuge amps at low volume levels.

It's super quite though lol. I mean its so low that its not really audible unless you are making a conscious effort to hear it & that is with no music at all :P. The iRiver RWA AK100 seems to be the quietest I've heard yet in terms of black background.

I've not heard the RWAAK100 in a quiet environment yet, so I have no idea, but I'll take your word for it as your ears seem sensitive enough.

Yeah Shigzeo it kinda caught me off guard as well. Almost soulless type blackness lol. Like the "void". ;)

Folks, I've jumped on the T1's bandwagon yesterday after managing to borrow some cash tongue.gif. Now looking forward to its arrival (which hopefully would not take long).

I'm about to order one this weekend.

lol well are you at least happy to be in that hole? :P.

 

Better to be satiated then to be underwhelmed with your purchase :). I've never been at this point where I'm simply satisfied with what I have. That seems to be an oxymoron here on headfi. Well other than my portable sources that is lol. Depending on what will come out I'll still be checking those DAPs out :P.

Yeah. Gavin was extremely helpful and I can't fault his impeccable CS. Same goes for the amp's package. I don't know how you guys feel, but when I'm paying something >$200 then no matter how good the thing is, I'd like it to come with a nice big (ok, maybe not big) packaging with lots of accessories. Simply makes you feel proud as respected as a customer. The T1 at least hit that for me, compared with the Arrow 4G which was in consideration.

 

Haven't got a decent amp for comparison here but I'd pit it against the Studio V. Hope my Z1050+T1 combo is going to wipe the floor with the V tongue_smile.gif.

post #254 of 543

lol which Studio V are you talking about?

 

The Studio tends to hold its own quite well as a single unit. The newer 3rd ANV has improved upon things especially in terms of hiss. Still not perfect but they are getting there :).

The 2nd generation one. It trumped my Z1050 as a single unit, and because it's so good, that's why I hope it's going to be utterly defeated by the combo, just to reflect how much of an improvement the T1 brings.
