hope to fix it soon and i will put for sale (if the 3ed sounds better!)

I have a regular Studio V too, they sound different enough to own both though still a similar house sound or flavour. I picked up the original for $150 shipped and loved that thing. The 3rd Anv however cost me a bit more.

Honestly, in a blind test I don't think after many months of ownership I could pick them apart (personally). The 3rd Anv sounds a fraction warmer keep in mind the word fractional. And the treble is slightly calmer. The main difference would be the first studio sounds a touch sterile which can come across as raw or overly analytical, whereas the 3rd sounds a bit coloured, (in a good way) just smoother and still the same awesome detail and separation. That's the best I can describe it.

Must be something In both for me to keep them side by side so long.

Good luck!

Not a DAC, but.....JDS C421 with OP2227 does share some of that  brightish clear, sterile, detailed sound IMO.

For example: When I run JDS C421 from a line out (Aune T1 for eg) that's probably the closet I've heard to a Studio.

But no DAC from me..

Thanks for your input! I haven't been using my portable rig in a while, so today was the day to bring out the Studio. Maan! I love this thing! I use the Studio + Meier Audio Quickstep + AKG K3003i = LOVE:biggrin:

 

I got home and the Quickstep was running out of battery, so since I was at my desk, I decided to plug it into my HeadRoom desktop amp instead of changing out the battery and still sounds great!

 

So that's why my question, if I could get this sound out of a dac, I'd be a happy man!  OR if Hisound and Fiio could combine powers and make an X5/Studio love child I'd be set!:tongue:

One thing you'll never take away from a Studio, it's unique house sound. ;)

I highly recommend this player with the FX850 and the SE5 sounds real good on it also with dynamic firmware.

yep! I've own the Studio and Rocoo BA for a couple of years now, and as a stand alone dap, it seems like the Rocoo has had more iems synergize with it vs the Studio.
