    SONY NW-ZX2 DAP

    I've tried searching everywhere but i can't seem to find it. Does anyone know the voltage output for the Zx2 from the HP jack? I'm hoping it's within the 2.0-2.2V range, close to the line level output from DAPs with a dedicated LO, so i can feed the ZX2 to an external amp. And help or info is...

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    I do not claim to understand precisely how the DLC/ADLC technology works. Based on my scholastic research on semi-crystalline / amorphous synthetic polymers however, it's vital to consider that amorphous and crystalline structures can have markedly different physical and chemical properties...

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    This. I think that preference plays a huge part here. I just auditioned the Andromeda, Lyra II and Vega. I don't think that the Vega has any significant qualities that jump out at you upon first listen, apart from the heftiness of bass. With critical listening however, the Vegas begin to...

    SpinFit Eartips Thread - The cheapest audio upgrade

    Pardon me if this question has already been asked (I don't see it anywhere in this thread though), but in comparison with the Spinfit tips, do either the Ortofon tips or Spiral Dot tips have a larger bore? I agree with @H20Fidelity that whilst a design necessity for the flexible rotation motion...

    CanJam Singapore 2016 Impressions (February 20-21, 2016)

      I recall that the Martian was my favourite of between the 3 (The 10BA which I think is the Legacy, Martian, Merlin 2).   The Martian was balanced with great overall resolution, clarity and detail.

    Light Harmonic Geek Wave

      Larry, could you just directly answer his question with an actual date/ time period? Not the Source but the Wave.

    CanJam Singapore 2016 Impressions (February 20-21, 2016)

    Just some final bits and pieces.   The Opus #1 player seems like a very solid first DAP (and very first product) from thebit. Critical listing wasn't possible given meet conditions and the lack of familiar tracks (or a microSD card) but it sounded quite good with a warm-ish dynamic sound. What...

    Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Headphones, IEMs, Amps, DACs)

    No worries. Let's put an end to that.   Keeping to the subject of Chinese/Asian IEMs, I figured it'd be good to mention a really nice IEM that I stumbled upon during the recent CanJam Singapore.   Advance AcousticWerkes is a fairly established Singaporean IEM manufacturer that is well known...

    Seconded. I preferred that setup to the Shangri-La. Probably the best overall headphone setup of the meet for me

    CanJam Singapore 2016 Impressions (February 20-21, 2016)

      That would have been quite a treat! If I have some spare time (absolutely none in the near future though), I'd certainly be interested to head down to LMUE for a longer audition of the FLC8S.

    CanJam Singapore 2016 Impressions (February 20-21, 2016)

    CanJam 2016 Impressions   (Edited to include the continuation of this original list)   First and foremost I just want to express my gratitude to the organizers of CanJam Singapore ’16, as well as all who were involved in bringing this event to fruition – the sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers...

    CanJam Singapore 2016 Impressions (February 20-21, 2016)

    I echo this sentiment. Truthfully the reason I visited the Klipsch booth in the first place was to get a signature on my scavenger hunt as it was the last 15 minutes of my time before I had to leave. Upon first look the X20I doesn't give off the impression of a good sounding IEM, at least in...

    Perfect Seal AR6 (Ambiance Reference 6) | New "Ambiance" Lineup of CIEMs!

    And I've forgot one last point. I've managed to spend quite a bit of time with an 1964 Adel U10 and they are very different sonically.   The U10 sounds almost like a bass cannon compared to the AR6. It it warmer, more intimate sounding, and also clearer and a touch more detailed. The...

    Perfect Seal AR6 (Ambiance Reference 6) | New "Ambiance" Lineup of CIEMs!

    I haven't been active on here all that much lately, but I am very much enjoying the AR6.   Having spent significant time with it, here are just some of my conclusions.   1) I was wrong. The fit of my AR6 is actually good. It felt off at first and I didn't really understand why, but after a...
