the offer is till there.. in kind..  I could perhaps offer my wife instead of myself while I listen to my wonderful new sounds..

 

Not sure she would agree,

 

She is cute though

 

Haha, thanks again

This might sound like a silly question but is there a way to maybe emulate the 8620 sound signature by maybe dialling down the bass setting on a stock X3?

Would be great if that could be done, but no.

I ordered an O2 amp from Epiphany acoustics that arrived on New Years's Eve. I bought the connecting cable yesterday and hooked it up and it has already improved my system. The Fiio X3 sounded good already; the new Fiio cables on my Shure SE215s made a big difference, but this amp has truly transformed my system from the first time I plugged it in.

 

Thanks for your great advice. It saved me a lot of time and made a huge difference for very little money

 

Thanks again

 

Cheers


Got mine from Oliver a few days after New Year's, the Epiphany Acoustics O2 is really nice. Congrats on money well spent...to both of us. :beerchug:

Would just like to ask, does this mod make a noticeable difference in SQ?

Currently using my stock X3(+2db treble) with the beyerdynamic custom one pro's(may upgrade to some jh customs later)

Wish to have more clarity and soundstage.Listen mostly to alternative rock, pop)

Btw this is my first post on head-fi:D

Well I hope it does, as I'm seriously considering this combo of gear later in the year. :D

 

Would I be better off just using the X3 in DAC mode to drive the O2 amp on the desk and do the mod in post 1 of this thread for when I'm on the move or is it worth getting the ODAC as well? (Presently use Grado SR60s at home and Senn PMX-60 neckbands when out and about).

The warmness comes mostly from the headphone amp section and not the line-out.

Yes, E12 will be more neutral than X3's internal headphone amp.
