    The Stax Thread III

    Hi, As I had to repair a couple of old Stax Lambdas, broken on the side "D" piece, I have created a 3D-printed piece: to enable some movement, I have created the axis as a separate part printed inside the other: You can find the part in eBay or in a webshop...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Now hearing the Mobius through LDAC by a Shanling M0: extremely small, 99 €, and I got in the deal a 64 GB card for 1 € more. Excellent sound - as good as cabled (with jitterbug!) Wired it is also a decent machine, clearly better in my system than the Meridian Explorer 2 except using MQA files.

    This may account for the dullness of the sound of 44.1 in my experience... This may also account for the dullness of the sound of 44.1 in my system, and the brilliance of true 96 kHz

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Hi, I have a technical doubt. I have seen that the Mobius appears as a 48 kHz device in 7.1 and 2 channel, and a 96 kHz device in HiRes. These settings cannot be changed, neither in Mac or in Windows, while my other DACs can be set at any sample rate I want. This means that, unless a firmware...

    Shanling M0 - Nano size, touch screen, LDAC & aptX BT, USB DAC/transport and ESS Sabre ES9218P, FW 3.2

    I made some small mods and the protective case is ready. It is designed to: a) protect the rotating knob from being pushed/rotated inadvertently in your pocket b) protect (most of) the screen borders from damage when hitting the ground. Only the uppermost corner remains "free" c) be able to...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    The USB cable has 4 wires: two data and 2 power. There is no galvanic isolation so noise can enter the PS in the Mobius through the power pair. There is nothing noisier than a PC (except for big SMPS's). The "decrappyfiers" work either passively, by filtering, or actively, by taking the data...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Following the recommendations of someone in the forum, I put a "USB-decrappyfier" in front of the cable connecting the Mobius with the Mac - A Audioquest Jitterbug that I used to use with the Meridian Explorer II. It is a must - the effect is enormous, and it really changes the level of the...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    It's been already some days with the Mobius and I am already forming some opinions. These cans are musical. I always wondered what people meant by musical, and now I understand it. I find the Stax precise and more realistic, but not "musical". The Mobius is more enjoyable. I still would prefer...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Mac running audirvana+ - Meridian Explorer 2 - kimber hero cable - SR252s - Stax Lambda Signature. While the headphone output of the Meridian is quite poor, the line out is excellent. Best mobile sound I ever had. (In the past I had use Benchmark DAC Pre + HD800 and preferred the Stax set up...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Received mine. As with MelonBag, my Indiegogo was lost in customs and they sent one directly from California, with the warm setting included. Very nice surprise! Excellent treatment from Audeze Initial comments: I bought it mainly for mobile music, then for movies. No gaming whatsoever...

    Shanling M0 - Nano size, touch screen, LDAC & aptX BT, USB DAC/transport and ESS Sabre ES9218P, FW 3.2

    In reality, it is only thick in the knob area - the other side looks thick but in reality it is a bezel to protect the screen border:

    Shanling M0 - Nano size, touch screen, LDAC & aptX BT, USB DAC/transport and ESS Sabre ES9218P, FW 3.2

    I have found a problem that the plastic case does not solve: the side button being pressed or moved by my clothes in the pockets of trousers or coats. This switches the M0 on (or off as the case may be) and it is a nuisance. I have created a 3D printed box that can be used as a clip, but also...

    Audeze Mobius review / impressions

    Hi, I have mine on order and they are already in my country, according to the tracking system; but I fear that it will happen just the same to me as to you!. At least in my case, it is not the headphones, but apparently my head shape. In my case, I have not had any single 3D headphone...
