I have a friend who's mother was sleeping with the step brother of a guy who used to work for a former supplier of a subsidiary of Chord, and apparently, my friend heard that if you use SPC cables on iems and plug them into the Chord, a little cat will die in Japan. True story.
Guys, let us all stay calm. Several headfiers say it sounds great with all formats, and then one guy with 12 POSTS comes, says an UNNAMED professionnal reviewers says it sucks with low res files, and we are all in a panic. Let us all take a step back from this kind of post. I am not saying the guy is lying or anything...but I would need more substantiated information to form an opinion.
