LOL it's hi-fi logic. Expensive? Must be good.
Get the product and you can't hear a difference. Meh, it's expensive, and I can pretend to say it makes a difference to make myself feel better.
I always thought external iPod DACs were a waste of money.
I've tried other types of signal switchers in the past and found that some of them can add background noise to the audio stream, things like hiss or hum noises.
I was wondering if has anyone noticed the FiiO HS2 having any adverse affect to the sound? Or is it dead silent with no background noise?
Opinions from people who actually tried the HS2 are appreciated.
I'm just curious as to why you chose to use two amplifiers for comparison? I think that for doing comparisons like this, you would want to eliminate as many variables as possible. I.E., run source A + source B > HS2 > CMoy > headphones. Who knows? one amp might be slightly colored compared to the other despite identical specs.
I'm not doubting the outcome of your test - Don't get me wrong. When I A/B, I try to keep the cables the same, amp same, just have one variable - the source or amp or whatever I'm testing.
That said enjoy the clas regardless since you have it! LOL.
Thanks for your feedback. It would be great to get a few more opinions before I take the plunge on this little device. Specially from people with sensitive IEM because they usually are quite tricky if you don't get a black background.
Sometimes there's noise when you are switching but other than that no. (Tried ES5 and JH10X3)
