||Tried all the possible permutations of opamps and buffers supplied with the iBasso D10. Settled on an AD8656 Opamp with dummy buffers - until getting in touch with HiFlight and bought his Topkit with its two TLE2141 single channel opamps (silver-soldered onto an iBasso adapter so they still fit into the single-chip socket and keep my iBasso warranty!) and a pair of EL8201 buffers; sounds amazing!
||Heavy Metal! Old school dance music, D'n'B, Dubstep, some classical, some rap / hip hop, ABBA (I'm a big ABBA fan!), and Vangelis. A bit of everything really - as long as it is dynamic, powerful, well made, and well played! But it Must be powerful - musically and/or emotionally.
