So it's been about 10 days now since receiving the IHIFI-760.
I'm still rather happy with my purchase, I feel no regrets what so ever and completely content with the player. Different to what I thought previously I'm now enjoying 760 paired with Etymotic ER4S more than I was the first time. Not sure why this is, maybe the player has broken in, I did change some different filters. I've been happily using this pairing for a few days now.
Areas 760 shines are.
Soundstage (decent width / good depth)
Coherency (ability to understand lots of samples at one)
PRaT (good rhythm and swing to the music)
Detail (with a hint of warmth beneath)
Bass impact (especially amped from line out)
Black background (very dark space like backdrop behind the music)
The battery meter similar to DX50 doesn't seem to work properly, gets about 8 hours in and displays flat with plenty of run time left (rated at 18 hours). The battery (Samsung S4) can be changed as we're aware, however you need to unscrew 4 screws on the backplate to gain access, which I might do and grab some pics. I really have no major complaints with the player and it lives happily beside my DX50 and Studio V, in some ways I prefer with ER4S over the Studio. Still a major fan of the MDR-V6 pairing.
I also tried some amping with C&C BH and it really shinned strongly using the line out, I could pair my H-200 up and they sounded great, impactful bass, good detail levels, impressive soundstage width. Another pairing I tried was using Traluents T1 amp and ER4S, that sounded rather special, crisp, clean. So not only is 760's headphone out rather capable and powerful the line out is very clean and perfect for amping. I don't know if the player will grab much attention here, but I enjoy it. it's very unique in design and sound. Overall IHIFI-760 is rather musical bringing out good PRaT and rhythm in your tracks, really bounces along nicely.
