- I tend to get sensitive to the highs freqs so these bother me pretty fast. I'm probably one of few who uses the 846 with the black filter permanently (Grado GR10 is for sale :-)).

- So should a custom IEM fail indeed, it's harder to resell afterwards.

 

All this leads me to stock IEM's and meanwhile wanting to hear them before buying it.

Might try eighter the Earsonics SM64 or the Aurisonics ASG-2.5 right after my Hifiman 802 experience though :-)

 

FWI - I have tried/owned both 846 and ASG-2.5 on my Tera.

 

Tralucent 1plus2's, and especially Ref.1's, blow them away as in: way, way better than either of them. There is really no comparison....I sold both of them (846 & ASG) after 2 weeks of trying them.

I used to own Westone W4R and the sound was good with the Tera but was lacking a wide soundstage that I like.

Wonder how W60 is, any improvements?

Now let's try to discuss and see what universal IEM works and have great synergy with the Tera Player.:)

The Apple earbuds are a great start for those who don't want to pay lots of money for IEM

Tralucent IEM's (1plus2 & Ref.1) are well known here at HeadFi to have one of, if not, the widest soundstage of any IEM or CIEM. The soundstage is jaw droppingly wider than any IEM I have ever heard. If you are after realistic soundstages and dynamic live sound you really must try either of them especially with the Tera.

Agreed! Especially the depth of the soundstage of the Ref1. Superlative

I also have 1plus2 and Ref 1. Ref 1 combined with Tera produce the best SQ I have ever heard - mobile or not.

And I have not even heard these phones with Tralucent Uber cable which supposedly takes them to yet another level. However that cable costs as much as the phones, and is not portable enough for my usage scenarios.

Okay, okay, I get the picture :-)))     (seriously, you too thanks for your opinion tgdynamo!)

 

Sent a mail through the tralucent website yesterday but no answer yet..... And no Ref 1 on their site.... Most of the site under construction.....

Anyone knows the story behind this brand? Nr. of employees, service, adequate behaviour in warranty cases, etc?

Not to spoil your upcoming weekend by reminding you of SD cards but out of curiosity, where your cards eventually rescued by the IT wizards?

It is universal. Prepare to be stunned when you eventually do hear them with Tera. These are even significantly better than Koss Porta modified (which I know you love and I agree those are amazing especially for the price - I did not expect to ever find iem to be even close as good as Koss, so Ref 1 was truly eye opening to me in terms of what is even possible with iem's in terms of competing with great open phones).

I like the new title. :bigsmile_face:

How does one convert DSD files into 192kHz/16bit files for max output quality in the Tera Player? I have a bunch of DSD files and would like to play them on the TP.

 

XLD my favourite convertor, only handles up to 96kHz WAV or "original" which for DSD64 is 352kHz/24bit - too high for the TP to handle.
