As owner of a Titan Mod (B) too, I am very interested in your opinions. Also, what does exactly mean "one level above":

1) It does justify an upgrade

2)  It is barely one level?

3) its one dimension above?

 

Thank you!

I remember Rudi at least also got 335/jh16/mircale/1plus2/k3003/334 so I say he's more than all set...

Are you planning to compare it with the AK240?

My diy Friend mod exactly like RWA AK 100 , nothing change The dac Chilps
I have compared these Two
AK 240 is One level above AK 120 In term of sound quality , better soundstage like you sit In big concert hall

You are right , at the Store i have SM 64 v1
I have Tralucent 1+2 With UBER cable , SQ is better than SM 64 , with UBER cable is solid core , I just extra take care during listening .
For critical listening I hear 1+2 or my Fit Ear MH 335 DW

I haven't heard Titan mod B
Maybe Gavin from Tralucent audio can answer your question

I have compare my Titan mod like RWA ak 100 mod with wire .

I have compare between my Titan mod and ak 240
Ak 240 has better resolution and better clarity , has wider and deeper soundstage .
This is what I mean one level better than my AK Titan mod .

--> Do you consider the XC as a "non leaking" headphone ?  Do you think you could use it in bed near your wife sleeping ?

--> How the XC pair with the AK240 ?  

I haven't heard my ak 240 properly , it is still on charging since 6 hours haven't finish / full

LCD XC is very good close headphone , the isolation is better than my TH 900
I hear beside my wife , she has not complain
If I use LCD 3 , your music make noise I can't sleep hahaha

I don't have alpha dog

Sig DJ isolation is better than LCD XC

IMO
