can you recommend me, by the way?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

FYI: i'm a silent reader from 2011, signing up just because i'm feeling like it :p 

 

let's just say that i'm just a 'broke' student.. and i'm having a budget difficulty with this.. what should i buy for my retiring rigs?

right now, let's say that i have a budget to cover one for each categories,

and i have an access to:


DAPs:

DX100 for 500US$

AK100 for 450US$
C4 for 350US$
 

AMPs:

nothing, i prefer direct :p

IEMs:

F111 for 450US$

EX1000,350US$

Stagediver SD2 for 400US$

 

 

 

i'm listening some Vocals/acoustics (Eva Cassidy, Susan Wong, Yao Si Ting, to John c. Foley, Phil Collins maybe), guitar instruments, not to prefer some trance like Guetta/Armin when i'm feeling like it.

 

the big question is..
which combo should i take?

and, if you have other suggestion, please mention it here!

no love for DX50 though, i mean, they're good for their price but the sound is so-so for me, it's like.. there's something missing, imho.

 

thanks, headfi!

 

 

anyway, sorry for the broken english!

I don't want to be rude but if your a "Broke Student" run away as fast as you can. As this hobby will leave you with an empty wallet for a long time.I like my set up but there's always that "Room for improvement" thought that runs threw my head :gs1000smile:

@honkytime Lmao, I knowwwww that feeling! Been on this hobby since 3 years ago, ended selling ALL of my setups just because I want to upgrade to better setups.. My wallet is crying on me.
Want to stay away, but I can't frown.gif those audio bliss is just too... You know what I mean wink.gif

@zamorin well yeah, I sort of like heir's, but I prefer dx50 more than x3 if I were to choose..
