Thanks!

 

Can I just say that I love the SRH1540? It's perfect sound sig for me, and matches well with AK100.

Whoa. My close backs! VOXOA's are gone, but replaced by much higher end close backs.

KEF M500

SRH940

SRH1540

Absolutely love all of them.

 

 

 

I guess I can post these at the portable thread too.

I really wish to try the SRH1540 too!! T.T I am so jelly right now and I'm serious...ly jelly.

Happy listening!

In a few months, I may be building a tube amp instead of O2... Because O2 mainstream haha might as well get a ZMF headphone or save up for SRH-1540 if I deeply fall in love with it

Aren't tube amps hard to build?

Yeah redface.gif guess I will have to stick with O2. Build it then maybe sell it out locally + sell my E09K/E07K for a full tube set up xD Tube DAC + Tube amp or a really good Tube amp + X3 biggrin.gif

Good luck with that! I might want a desktop DAC/Amp setup, but I'm broke now. Any cheap(Under $200 total) DAC/Amp that is low gain and low impedance(something better then AK100 and UHA-6S.MKII)?

Probably the best review I've written. I didn't proof read anything, so there may be some errors, but I like this review a lot.

Thanks!! The FiiO E07K have a really low output impedance but the E09K is much more powerful but with output impedance of 10Ohm. It's a warmish pairing although not warm enough for my taste xD I'm planning to sell it for around USD120~ or trade for a DIY O2 kit + enclosure.

Never tried neither of your gear but I personally like the iBasso D7 xD

So, a quick questions for my friends. I'm planning on getting a desktop set up after selling my M500 and possibly the UHA-6S.MKII. I want a full desktop set up for my SRH940,1540 and UERM. What DAC/Amp can I get for $400 or less that is better then UHA-6S.MKII(via optical). I don't need any usb inputs. All I need is a optical input for AK100. Or should I just get a amp and match it directly to AK100?
