One of my ALAC albums (Best of Bond - James Bond 50 Years - 50 Tracks) insists on playing chipmunk style with 1.080beta. It's the only album of ALAC that does that. Those same files work fine in DX100 naturally.

What's the sample rate / size?

Don't have any ALAC files anymore since I moved away from my macs to a NAS file server for my music. Can help you try if you can upload a couple tracks... also read from erji official 1.080 will be released soon.

Hmmm..standard ALAC. 16/44.1? I left it up to iTunes to do the ripping. This isn't a highres AIFF or anything.

I was considering TP for my hopefully coming SE5way but with the new prices, no f***ing way. I would import HDP R10 or wait/import HM901 instead of TP.

 

For AK120, it is still darn expensive mate, at least for me. I have gotta see how much I will save and how long I will be able to save. There is FiiO X5 coming too, it seems like a it will be a perfect price/performance device with high end capabilities.

Didn't someone say he could still get some TPs at the old price on the TP thread ? Musicday ?

Some TPs landed in Source Components For Sale / Trade forum. Just keep an open eye. You'll get it even cheaper than the original price. Same case with the AK120 or any other things you want in Head-Fi.

Don't be so sure about that - they maybe secondhand but everything is releative to the current full retail price, so, ironically, we may see some people selling their TP for more than they originally paid for it...

You took the words right out of my mouth. X5 may be a good option, price-wise.

You are right Mim, musicday, if I am not mistaking, found a way to purchase from the old price in a limited stock.

For the moment, I am about to spend all my money if my ears are big enough (the appointment with audiologist is on this Friday), so the case is kinda closed for me. I know Rboxed Clip+ is not the best DAP for SE5way but I am not Bill Gates's son either so I have to move on, keep on tightening the belt and save for another high end purchase. After I finish the master and get a job, I will be happy to join your sides friendly head-fiers happy_face1.gif

 

When the time comes, I will try to see what are my options and search pretty much everywhere I know. I also know there are extremely friendly people around in here so I won't get lost. Then we will see what is the best option for me; TP, X5, R10, DX50, AK120, HM901 or any other new comers.

 

Maybe Gavin would enter into a DAP world? He has the iem, the cables, the amp. Why not DAP?

Well, people are smart enough to see/give values of 2nd hand items. But if they have too much money to burn, it's up to them rolleyes.gif. I would never buy TP at current price. The old price is already pushing it. 

Actually, If I don't have an SE5 my TP would be long gone to the land of For Sale/Trade.

Jazzy, if you ever want to sell your TP, please don't forget me, I am also pretty close to Netherlands too tongue.gif

You are always welcome to come to NL. We can meet up and you can try TP, AK120, amps, and some other stuff. Who knows you like the TP a lot and decide to buy it. One thing I can promise is that I'll sell it cheaper than the original price wink.gif.
