I know right? Today I loaded a couple of albums I hadn't listened for a while and I was surprised to hear details I had never noticed before. Such a great feeling.

I find my F806 sounds better than any Cowon model I've tried, especially with the Dunu. I still rate the Sansa Clip Zip and Dunu DN-1000 though. I use that player as choice with my Dunu over many others. If you can find one for refurb price (About $28) I deeply recommend giving one a try, see what you think next to the Sony. You may find yourself terribly surprised.

I really couldn't tell you sorry, I know amazon have them for about $244

I picked mine up on our FS section as an impulse purchase and never looked back.

Maybe I would "upgrade" to DN-1000 from GR07BE, but first I need a DAC, cuz my integrated sound card is so poor. :S

I found two:

 

Musiland 01 Mini 52USD

HiFimeDIY Sabre U2 Asynchronous USB DAC   57USD

But I read that Sabre has impedence >200 Ohm, and elswhere that high impedance is not good match for DUNU.
What do you think, should I go for the Musiland Mini? I appreciate any other suggestion! .:)

I use mine with the U2 DAC and love the combination.
post #878 of 1587

Thanks! And could I use that (U2 + DN-1000) without amp? 

Plus do you like your DN-1000 more than the GR07 BE (I see you had one :), is it worth the plus 60 bucks?

Absolutely. U2 powers the DN1000 easily.

And the BE had better micro details but the DN1k has deeper bass and better soundstage.

Thanks! I will borrow a DN-1000 for testing purposes.

 

Your U2 the async version?

 

Is it a big upgrade from an integrated soundcard? Or from a Fuze/Clip/iPhone 4/5? (these are on similar level)

For the price of BA200, have a look at Dunu DN-900 which is a superb mid-centric hybrid, and I think it is better than BA200 in every way

post #883 of 1587

Or the AX35. 

post #884 of 1587

Did you guys notice that ljokerl updated his massive table with DN1K? The score is surprisingly low, 9.2. I own some IEMs he also scored similarly (eg. GR01 is 9.2, R-50 is 9.1) and heard others (eg. Brainwavz B2 - 9.2) and kind of do not understand. These are all dual armatures with very little, near-to-no bass (GR01, B2). B2 is heavily sibilant. I can see that he is no bass-head and may not like V-shaped (is this really the case with DN1K?) but no-bass sound of some dual armatures he scores 9.2 aren't neutral either.

post #885 of 1587

I would personally rate them 9.3 or 9.4 having heard and owned many TWFKs he rates 9.1/9.2.
