with my hydra 8core cable, its more refined throughout the spectrum. the bass tightened and its such quality that made me go wow.

 

the trebs that i found a little harsh were tamed.

 

the mids are as lush as ever and i think the overall sound became smoother as well. the soundstage is impressively wide with a nice depth to it.

 

i have zero fatigue and i dont hear any hiss either.

 

i had the sony 1070 and it had hiss so i got rid of it.

 

i decided to get this over the AK120 for the purpose of UI and syncronisation with my itunes (transcoded to ALAC)

 

overall i prefer the ZX1 against the AK120, gotta love them hardware buttons and the sound discrepancies to my ears are next to none.

 

the cost savings alone allowed me to get a better cable!

 

really loving my setup now.

 

Thanks so much, both you guys :bigsmile_face:

There was someone asking about gapless on the ZX1... happy to report it works fine, no pauses or anything :)

Can anyone hear the difference between power amp and the default player with all eq off?

post #2948 of 7455

Oh god da***it another very good review with SE5way, you guys don't just let me go on buy FiiO X5 huh? :happy_face1: Just kidding, I am happy to see it really pairs well. Since I will never get hard to drive cans, maybe I should take a look at it again. Mim and Greed both say it has enough power to drive SE5way.

 

I think for somebody who is going to use c/iem all the time, ZX1 is a hell of a dap.

Just get both and problem solved :)

Considering ZX1's low output power, maybe Amperior could be a better choice. Most people were using amps with HD25 to get the best out of it.

Buy it for education to figure out which is better :veryevil:

 

The ZX1 is definitely a killer dap for someone like me who only uses (c)iems. I never understood the need for all that power that some of these daps have but that's just me.

I will stay only in ciem world too but my SE5way is a little power hungry. However thanks to Mim and Greed I feel okay about it. On March (my birthday) I might get one to make myself happy.

A cable upgrade helps as well.  SPC really makes the HD25 sing.

 

But Amperiors are quite a steal these days...
