Same here.

I saw a different cable with Jerry's Roxanne during the Mook HF. Looks like an Ag coated Cu. Ask for that cable VZ. And sorry about what happened.

JHA customer service is generally top notch. I agree with everything that has been said though with respect to the cable issue. But I also believe Jerry will do his darnest to make it right. In my experience, he always has.

Agreed.

Has anyone used the Roxanne with any of the Astel & kern players? Does the 3ohm output impedance effect the sound?

One of the Daps I used at CanJam for the Demo was the AK120 and I did not notices any issues other than what I mentioned earlier about the tizzy highs, but the issue showed up on three different rigs.  I did not hear the issue on the final round of demoing (once Jerry got me a good seal) or with my customs set.

Awesome! Thank you for your insight

I've used the AK120 Titan on it and they sound good :) no problem with the 3ohm output.

Good to know! I ordered the AK100mkii with my Roxanne's. Just waiting on both now. Hopefully they will have the cable fixed be for I receive mine.

Pretty stoked! Will be a big step up from my Westone 3's lol

on the AK120 there was a bit of sibilance on some edm tracks. But otherwise, no difference with a Titan.

Bass is well implemented even at full tilt, doesnt bleed.
post #2396 of 8331

But, in some cases, poorly-controlled treble can actually be a result of too high an output impedance from the DAP/Amp, can it not?

post #2397 of 8331

I do know from reading off folks here, that high impeded DAPs & AMPs will suppress bass, not sure what it does to the treble frequencies. 

AK120 does play well with the demo Roxannes, just hoping that JH will fix the sibilance on the final product.

Yeah, high output-impedance DAPs/amps, when driving very low impedance multi-BA CIEMs, seem to yield poor synergy in terms of weak (or poorly controlled) bass and increased (or poorly controlled) treble. (*broadly-speaking).

 

I can't comment on the high-impedance cans side of the issue, as I have no experience with cans.

Ah cool, so generally speaking (given a same set of iem/hp)

 

paired with Low impedance dap/amp = warm 

paired with High impedance dap/amp = bright

 

So how does this relate to hard-to-drive, hi-impedance headphones? Does it also contribute to a different sound signature or just affect the volume output only?

I demoed AK120 with my JH16 and didn't like the bass amount and texture on my JH16. I used my C5D and it did make the bass better but the overall sound was a bit grainy compared to DX50. I suppose it's due to not having a true lineout.

People may like the sound out of it with low impedance iem but certainly it is different. It feels like the sound is colored. whether it's good or not is up to individual's preference. Definitely not for me.

I didn't get the chance to demo Roxanne on AK120 coz It did not work for me on JH16. But Roxanne definitely is a step up over JH16
