Panasonic HP-HJE900 Zirconia. Note: Yuin PK1 Was in the list but it became unfunctional almost since I bought them, woe for me because I waited about 2 years, no guarantee. Bad quality, I think, will not buy another.
|Headphone Amp Inventory
||Phonitor 2730, Practical Devices XM5, Cmoy (bought on eBay), self assembled Mini3 and M3, FiiO E7. Muse Mini DAC with 4 TDA1543 DAC ICs (got it to take the optical signal from the Shanling CD Player as an input to the Phonitor).
||Sansa Fuze 4Gig with 16Gig card; Sansa Clip 8Gig with 8Gig card. And Lastly, an Ipod classic 160G. I also use a Media Player to hear music and see movies. The quality of my Media Player is exceptional, music output is from an optical cable.
||Ordered to build cables for my Phonitor 2730 with Canare L-4E6S, their Quad audio cable with Neutrik NJ3FC6-BAG connectors. Neutrik connectors for the input of the amplifier. I don't hear difference between cables, however, nice made cables look better, do they?
|Other Audio Equipment
||Harman Kardon HK3490 (Stereo 120 watts per channel). Speakers Ascend Acoustics CBM170, Shanling PCD3000A CD player.
||I use all my equipments manufacturer's default.
||Almost all genres.
||Good music and good movies.
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
||Movie DVDs, Satellite Television (FTA), Philosophy Books, Technical Books, I discovered the MEDIA PLAYERS that use a Hard Disc and/or SD Cards, USB inputs of any kind (Hard Discs, memory sticks, etc.) I presently own one that reads DVD ISO files (movies, that is), read FLAC, OGG, WAV, MP3, DTS audio, and many others. It has a DIGITAL output that can be the input of a DAC and it produces the best audio QUALITY that I have heard in my life. Media players are the next advance in media players. You can rip SACDs and hear them, and can have 2 Terabites or more of media files. I own the Argosy HV335T 3.5" HDD 1080P HDMI Mobile Video Media Player bought on eBay to GOWHOLESALER.
