Yes, I heard ifi iEmatch but doesn't it change sound? Love to hear someone who has tested with IEMatch if it does not affect the sound but just get rid of hiss.
Besides, interest to hear what amp Ken used to tune the andro... Maybe Alo RX?
Only source that i could get hissless was iPhone actually. The rest of daps and amps create minor hiss and either make the sound slightly bassy (if output impedance is close to 0.5 ohm) or thin (over 2ohm) and quite hard to find ideal source/amp to pair with.
It does change the sound, that's the whole point of this device. You are changing the output impedance and andromeda is sensitive to output imp. changes. Higher output imp will result in leaner, brighter sound and lower impedance output 1< will result in warmer, bassier sound. Other than that, I don't think it affects the SQ any other way. I've heard that sony zx2 is a really nice pairing with andromeda and zx2 has 1.5 output imp, so you can use IEMatch to alter the output impedance for better match.
