IHIFI 760 + 770 (pg 13) + 800 (pg 25) : From makers of the 812V2 / 960 - Page 7

post #91 of 481

I decided to place an order on IHIFI 760 and have a play with it while things calm down next door.

Hi,

 

I hesitate between several player (760,dx50 and x3) and I would like information on the 760.

 

My interest is just the sound and for the home, therefore the weight and size is not a problem.

 

The player will only play with a Grado SR80i, nothing else.

 

Could you detail the MSEQ function ? He has a possible setting of bass and treble ?

 

Thanks.

If it's just for home use then 760 is one to consider, mines done about 70-100 hours now and I've been hesitant to say anything but my unit has opened up quite a bit in detail. It's specifically rather good in layering and soundstage (wider the n DX50) and rather thick in the mid range with strong presence to lower mid detail. Because 760 is slightly warm in tonality it pairs well with brighter headphones and IEM, helps even out, so I'm guessing it should pair well with your Grado. There is a bass preset under MSEQoption and 3D, plus it has other presets like jazz, classical, rock, pop etc, but I never use them.

If you go ahead be sure to give the 760 50+ hours before making judgement as I was rather suprised at the outcome.

Thanks for the reply,

 

Equalizer is customizable or just preset ?

 

The only player I own is a sansa clip +, there will be a vast improvement in quality with 760 ?

 

I'm about to buy my first dap...

You cannot adjust bands on the equaliser like Sansa, only presets (like ipod) , you cannot adjust bass or treble. FiiO x3 is a better choice for that. Really 760 may not be best for your first dap after clip, it does sound quite a lot better than the Sansa but is really designed to be played on a flat setting, basically locked out of EQ.

take the problem differently how sounds the 760 flat eq compared to the clip + flat eq ?

 

I know that the issue is difficult, be that on the 760 I do not feel the need to turn eq ?

It will sound well refined with more detail, you'll hear deeper in vocal extension and depth to instruments, the timbre of instruments will sound more natural, realistic. Deeper detailed bass with increased texture . The low end on 760 Is already a touch emphasised I'd be surprised if anyone would want anymore, the sub-bass is deep and poweful. (But a little bit loose) Treble ever so slight rolled off.

Overall 760 will sound more mature, more grown up than the Clip, instruments will image better, you'll get a better sense of staging and hear beneath the layers easily , but a touch warmer in the mids. Usually what we do is adjust our headphone to suit the player, no EQ is used. So the gamble is much higher whether the players signature suits each individual, but the mind is also very powerful in adjusting itself to the sound.

H20Fidelity, have you ever had a change to listen through RE0s and UE600s? What do you think about these pairings?

I've heard RE0, but before I owned the 760, it does sound nice with dynamic based gear from what I've tried. I think the main thing to remember with 760 is try and pair it up with brighter sounding gear. Something like R-50 or B2 that sound a touch bright/thin I can see pairing well with the warmer IHIFI. Balance out that tonality.

Stumbled over this on mp4nation. Wondering how this would work with classical music in FLAC and beyer Dt770. Any idea?

No Idea sorry. 760 pairs well with brighter sounding gear from my experience, it's signature a touch warm and rather musical. It has a specific timbre or character which makes it enjoyable however it's not the most detailed player I own and lacks a touch of seperation, it's impressive in soundstage and layering as compensation. I'm being a little harsh though comparing it to much more expensive hisound players one studio v, it's much better than any Cowon or apple source.
