They told me they will ship my Roxanne early next week after I told them I don't need the CF case. 
Finally the wait will be over.
Congrats, Man. You'll love them. I sent mine back for refit today. Going back to 846

When I had my Westone ES5s paired with the pico slim I could not hear too much of a difference. Customs, portable amps, etc were a first for me, but believe me, in time you'll hear how much a difference a good amp can make. I could never use my phone to listen to music, unless my portable rig is out of battery and I've no way to charge it.

I wouldn't strap an amp to my phone either, not worth the hassle for such slight improvement (if at all)

Do you do iTunes Match for the 256kbps files?

I really have NO interest in adding an amp, but am seriously considering a DAP. Still trying to learn about converting my music into better files.

Thanks for the help.

The add on amp has nothing to do with volume. IRS has all to do with SQ. . Loud can be terrible if not with quality. .

I don't use iTunes Match since most of my music collection is already in FLAC. I down-convert them to AAC for portable use.

I am also looking at the Calyx M and Fiio X5. If the M will indeed be offered with a discount soon, the difference in price won't be that big!

well 600$ at the lowest vs. 350$ is significant. Below 700$ I think I would give Calyx a try.

Hmm there is a difference yes... But still, the price difference is not too much comparing their technical specs.
I think that the Calyx is more TOTL and competing against AK than the X5 does... But as stated... $350 sounds like a bargain!

Should the X5 be fine standalone? Or do you still need to add an amp? smily_headphones1.gif

I think the X5 is excellent as standalone. Anyways I only use iems. And I prefer to ak100 and even 120, but I did not much care for the ak sig.

Hmm the X5 is very very tempting!!! I think I'll just wait to see what the discount of the Calyx will be and then decide...
I will mainly use the DAP with the Roxy's... smily_headphones1.gif

I just got hold of my Roxanne. I was delivered last Monday but I was out of town. I am still suffering the effects of a jet lag and I need to crank up the volume a bit higher than usual to get to a good listen level.

 

I'll take Roxanne for the usual burn in before any serious comparison. My initial impression so far is the sound overall has much more weight than JH16. Cranking up the bass all the way to maximum is too much. Far more than the bass I remember from the demo I tried before. So far I like the bass settings from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock.

 

For now here are the pics.
