DX50 -> CIEMs on the go, DX100 -> CIEMs at my desk. :cool:

My current rig is the complete Nuforce Icon 2 setup which served me well but wanted to get something better and portable. I don't have a sophisticated audiophile level desktop rig however I know that current technology in portable is impressive, I also like the flexibility of a portable rig.

I listened to the D12 a while back and that was what put me on a search for better sound quality. I find that pairing the DX50 in coax mode, the double wolfson really shines, it seems to make the sound richer, the bass lush and the highs sparkle. Once you listen to it it seems that nothing else could pull the music in such a beautiful display. The last time I felt that way was using my mod with the RSA Intruder in balanced mode.

The best don't necessarily come from the stores, I appreciate your inventiveness, that is a really clever way to case the rig. :wink_face:

Haha, anything works for such a rig! Especially for a unit with lots of potential with upcoming updates; it's probably best we get some protection for the naked half-baked, because its got a long journey in the times to come. tongue.gif

Thanks! And I never knew that sort of material was called "corduroy".

I really like my new Astrotec AX7 with the DX50. Such a well balanced and detailed sound. 

Everything seems to pair well with it...

You got the AX7? how are they? I remember reading somewhere that you're not a fan of the BA's, so how does this one perform for you?

Where did you hear that? I prefer BAs to dynamic drivers for mids and treble, but I do sometimes like a dynamic driver bass more. 

They are great and based on the very popular TWFK drivers. After my experience with the B2s (I thought that they were good at the time), I promised to never listen to another TWFK, but I listened to this at the NM and I was really impressed. I asked Billy about it and he told me that it was a TWFK and I was quite shocked.

Imagine a less harsh and more bassy B2/DBA-02 with the same detail and separation and you have the AX7s. They are the best built TWFK driver IEMs, having a metal housing and have a nice copper/silver cable.

It also has a pair of treble filters if you like a more "traditional" TWFK sound.

Nice! Just out of curiosity is that an old backgammon case?
