Great taste in great music is always easy wink.gif

I got see him live a couple times. Once with Amos Hoffman. In the end, the iDSD does justice to jazz music. beerchug.gif

I believe the Lightning version of the CCK can be used by itself. (That is how I use it with our iPhone 5 phones and iPad Air.). Our original iPad and iPhone 4s that uses the old style Apple connector needs a USB printer cable and the adapter plug that comes with the IDSD Micro cable to plug into the old style CCK and then into the iDSD Micro. We have to use a wrapped, regular USB printer cable, but are on the lookout for a short USB male to female cable that will be shorter, and won't need the USB adapter.

Analog pots do tend to have some channel imbalance at low volume.

Turn it up!

If it's too loud then engage IEMatch.

FOR HEADPHONES

 

What is the best file type to use with the iDSD Micro in your opinions?

Stereo DSD or SURROUND 5.1 DSD?

+1! But IMO, for almost all my 32 Ohm impedance headphones, I uses Eco + Ultra Sensitivity in order to set my volume to desired position.

These guys do great optical cables apparently:

Yes, they do! I had a short toslink cable custom built by Sys Concept to connect an AK100 to a Centrance HiFi-M8. Works perfectly! Very pleased with their work.

This company makes an excellent sounding Optical Glass Cable...

A friend who used to claim "All Cables Sound The Same" was blown away by the wonderful sound of these Optical Glass Cables...

 

 

He purchased the "ITEM # TLTLG-OS" ...

Hi guys,

Anyone with HD800, do you listen at normal or turbo mode ?
Normal mode at around 11 to 12 o'clock volume felt just right for me.

Would like to seek more user experience.

Thanks.

normal. i haven't found the need to use turbo yet...maybe if i pick up the he6 one of these days. but turbo is more than adequate for the hd800

I use turbo on my AKG when watching movies on my desktop as for some reason, movies sound seems to be softer than my music in FB2k. Other than that, no need for Turbo mode smily_headphones1.gif
