Excellent review. As an owner of the RSA Protector I could not agree more that once you go balanced you cannot go back to single output sound.

Thanks man.  I agree, Balanced is indeed the way to go.  the additional costs often keep people from going there I think.  but if your paying lets say 700 for the HE-500, whats another little bit to get the cable you want?  the drag is I have some nice IEMs unbalanced.  dont know what I want to do about that.. lol.

I agree again with you Keith. I think people are put off by the costs and perceived trouble of buying balanced cables. I use my RSA Protector with the SE535J and await the SE846. I would suggest Ted at Headphonelounge.com. Great prices and a real gentleman and craftsman to deal with for custom cables.

I'm still hoping for a AK100/Lightning stack photo.  Anyone?

I am also hoping for RWAK100-S / Lightning stack. Small, portable, balanced. What can you ask more?

Lightning with the AK100 in tandem. I use a high purity silver IC that I make which takes up little room as can be seen.

Thanks jamato, nice picture. I found the all package is really small, but thickness wise, it is not pocketable I guess?

Depends upon the pocket. I put in my cargo pant pocket or my jacket or whatever and hardly notice it. And what is crazy, you get balanced excellent sound on the move.

Yeap, that's what is appealing of course. I am gonna probably get that little devil a bit later on after I save some money.

 

Would you mind telling me a place where I can order balanced cables for ciems?

Whiplash makes them. I would imagine RSA would also know of some sources.

Ted from Headphonelounge also makes great balanced cables at very good prices. Also, a great guy to deal with.
