KOJO KM01-BRASS : With a (32Ω) 20mW +20 mW impression and appreciation thread - Page 13

Thanks Rudi,I left it unpolished just for the photograph to show the slightly "aged" effect. :-) Each time after wiping it off with a microfiber cloth, the pristine shiny look is restored.

Just got the Kojo today. I did listen to it with dx50 and like its SQ but it is harsh in high notes of treble. Is that normal for the almost new one? Would the harshness be less?

Congrats for your new Ko Jo brass edition
I heard many Ko Jo in brass edition ,all sounded not harsh in the high
Very smooth silky clear and clean sound with strong in midrange

This is the first time I heard that Ko Jo high so harsh

Normally for all other amps the first sound out the box are brighter , after burn in will be less bright

What kind of cable do you use ?
What kind of iem / hp do you use ?

IMO

I am listening to mostly vocals but in our vietnamese language so most of the high notes (high pitch notes) are harsh. I did not hear this harshness in another portable amps I own.

Rgds,

Could it be the music I downloaded (128 bps) and they are not WAW or FLAC.
That is not true since I have switched to ipod 5.5 as a source using ALO imod IC cable (copper) I do not hear any harshness. The music was downloaded from itune copied from CDs (253 bps)
