    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    I'm not sure qutest supports DSD - even if it does via DOP, it internally resamples the stream back to PCM inside the DAC prior to analog conversion. Chord doesn't believe in the merits of DSD and optimizes their DACs for PCM. If you have a DSD track, you're better off converting it to PCM...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    he's probably just stating his distaste for the backward trend. If we could do 40+ hours way back when, and Sony can do 30 now, why are we accepting 15 from Cayin? That said, I think 15 goes against the grain and is EXCELLENT battery life compared to other DAPs I've owned.

    no option to work with Hidition remotely, like you can with other custom manufacturers?

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    it's more about the amp's performance qualities: stage, layering, blackness of background, resolution, dynamics, attack/decay, etc Yes, you're generally going to get better performing amps the higher up the audiophile cost ladder you venture. It's up to you to decide if that gain (over a...

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Dd sounds great because there is no internal wiring or solder joints. That's just more non linearity introduced in the circuit. The DD are awesome!

    Should I want wired USB-C IEMs for my smartphone? Do you want wired USB-C IEMs to your smartphone? Should they make more wired USB-C IEMs?

    Triton audio and plussound are two manufacturers who have usbc dacs built into their iem cables as an option. For convince this surely satisfies, but it probably isn't the last word in sound quality. If you're dropping $250 on a cable, you probably are serious enough to carry a proper dap...

    Those photos are quite good actually. Thanks for the impressions. I have my eye set on the 500 as well.

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Graphs were posted. Tonality looks nice (based on graph) - and the distortion is ridiculously low https://www.head-fi.org/threads/dunu-luna-worlds-first-pure-beryllium-rolled-foil-diaphragm-flagship-iem-impressions-and-discussion.923958/post-15466060

    Itsfit Fusion impressions thread

    I've been interested in the R3 - put the UNI in my cart and the coupon code isn't working. Perhaps it's only for customs.

    ISN H40 impression thread.

    instead of asking, I'll tell ya. it's skin oils reacting with the PVC. Some TPU sheathed cables are more resistant to oil than PVC, but not all. Most PlusSound and EffectAudio turn to hardened spaghetti for me after 6 months. Yet... I have three cables that have passed the test of time and...

    DUNU DK-2001 - 3 BA + 1 beryllium DD hybrid: the long-awaited follow-up to the DN-2000 and DN-2000J!

    Instrument separation is good. I never struggled to pick out and follow individual instruments. Layering - I'm only good at determining treble layering based on decay of cymbals and how well they sustain despite heavy instrumentation in mids and bass. Also bass guitar and kick drum being...

    DUNU DK-2001 - 3 BA + 1 beryllium DD hybrid: the long-awaited follow-up to the DN-2000 and DN-2000J!

    well, it's me man. I even had a problem with Rai Penta (one of the most ergonomic uni's available). I'm beginning to think it's anything with a metal shell. The DX2001 is a very comfortable earphone, especially if you rock them forward just a bit to ensure the part that connects with the mmcx...

    Wanted: 3.5 mm jack to 6.35 mm jack cable

    Probably easier to use a 3.5 male to 3.5 male cable with a 1/8 to 1/4 adapter.
