What you ASG-2 owners need (expect for Gintaras) is this little Colorfly C3.
The UI is very basic however the sound you'll get from ASG-2 is really nice, lifts the tonality towards cool just a touch and supports instrument separation (these are areas C3 is known for working well). I could use a number of sources such Hisounds Studio V, Rocco BA, Cowon J3 though I choose the little Colorfly for ASG-2. What also helps here is C3 suffers just a touch of low end roll - off, so you smooth over a fraction of that mid-bass hump present in ASG-2's signature, that's how I'm hearing it though we might also lose any sub-bass some find absent. Personally, I don't mind the mid-bass hump with bass ports set at 1 and 1/2 clicks, I feel it helps form the presentation ASG-2 is trying accomplish also contribute to wild foot stomp dancing at random, though I don't want much more. For example,Cowon J3 overcooks the presentations low end, I get a little too much bleed coming through covering mids, C3 sits well while keeping things separated. By about 38/40 on the volume you're pretty much rocking your own live concert, so don't worry about driving power issues.
Spend $100 and rake in the benefits of your new audiophile
player. I believe Gintaras owns one and will happily tell us how it sounds.
Highly recommended, especially for those rocking smartphones. You can take it further!Edited by H20Fidelity - 8/17/13 at 4:48am
