post #16 of 26

Anyone have any more thoughts on these? Might pick one up for use with JH16s and possibly LCD2s.

Have had my Island about three weeks now. Sounds great with Senn HD 600s and HD25 Aluminum. Not good for AKG 702s

Thanks. Not very familiar with the 702s, but from what I've read they seem less forgiving.

Hey! 

 

What about the match up didn't work with K702's? I'm curious, as I've now acquired K712's...

I tried The Island with Q701 a few days ago at E-earphone Osaka. Not a good match in my opinion, sound was very thin and something felt missing. Bitperfect playback of FLAC files with Foobar.

Can someone please help with driver installation on Windows 7/64. i inserted CD and used 7 zip to extract driver files and receive an error message.

 

Thank you

You took the words right out of my mouth. I think its a power thing. The 702s are great fed by my Schiit Lyr. They are supposed to be hard to drive.

Thank you for your help, I returned The island to ALO, I found their support inadequate.

It was just plug in and play with my Mac Mini system. I wonder why.

Windows requires drivers for high resolution playback, Mac has them baked in.
