Last solution I can pay paypal to one of your friend, child, wife, mistress :wink:
The money would be paid directly and instantly to the paypal account at no cost to the recipient (friend-person mode of cofiance, that's how I do in my purchases in France or elsewhere)

Sorry, I don't do PayPal... got burned badly once. You may know the saying, 'burned once, twice careful'. The postal money order will work fine.

Thank you very much
I will confirm you good reception
I wanted to ask you what is your experience about balanced cable because my DAP (Xduoo X20 and Cowon Plenue S) has balanced output. I never tried. What is your recommandation about a good cheap cable : Brainwavz balanced cable? Hidizs ? Aliexpress cable?
I have no experience with balanced cables and I will test the output balanced with my Oriveti New primacy et yours OH500.
As much I believe in the balanced output contribution, as much I am very skeptical about the very type of cables used I have experienced it with living room HiFi equipment where I am satisfied now with cables made by a friend based on Mogami with Neutrik plugs and good welds.
Thanks for your notice.

To be honest, the only difference I noticed (my DAP has both single ended and balanced outputs) was an increase in volume. Otherwise, no increase in clarity or soundstage, and no increase or decrease in bass, midrange, or treble. Unless you are running really long cables (20' or more) there really isn't a benefit to using balanced. Balanced is better at rejecting hum from adjacent cables, which is why it's used in recording studios and professional applications like concerts and PA systems. The increased volume is a function of the amplifier/DAP's balanced circuitry, not the cable. If you want to try balanced, you could try this: https://www.amazon.com/Balanced-Rep...rrs+mmcx&qid=1617747834&s=electronics&sr=1-15 You could give it a try. The Oriveti's are very revealing, so if there is a difference, you should hear it. New Fantasia makes some well-constructed cables as well, but they are pricier. Mogami makes good stuff!
Happy listening!

thanks you for your expert opinion
My friend just receive the packet Very speed
It's incredibly kind of you not to have waited for the reception and the collection of the check. Thank you.
We must leave ourselves a good evaluation on headfi forum

So you think that all these discussions on this headfi forum and other specialized forums also when the contribution of a balanced output is screwed up. Is it just commercial and fashionable for brands to do a balanced output on their DAP?
I suspected a little. This is also what my friend, an expert in living room HiFi, thinks with whom I made Mogami cables. For him, Hifi cables are above all a scam, a way for brands to make a big profit
And he also told me that as long as they are short distances no audible difference
Placebo effect!
Indeed my mogami cables were as good as a Golden Cross cardas I sold
But personally I have no experience using the output and balanced cables, which is why I was asking your opinion
Thanks a lot
