    Earsonics EM 10

    Can someone confirm who owns multiple TOTL iem is it true that I’m missing a lot with the EM10. As per crinacles posted reviews and chart of various and expensive IEM, EM10 is described with low dynamics and lifeless... Well I can’t talk about dynamics much as I haven’t tried any other expensive...

    Shanling UP4 & UP2 - Bluetooth 5.0 DAC/AMP with ES9218P, balanced output, supporting LDAC, HWA LHDC, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC.

    AAC should be used on iOS only, unless something finally was released on Androids that i’m not aware and sounds decent. license of AAC i s held by apple itself and others fail to be implement it with similar SQ

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    There is no working, officially released protocol that can carry video streaming data on BT.. Yes it is "doable" with RFCOMM and good coding skills, lots of effort and very bad results at the end. Maybe there is something on stackoverflow I don't know, but I really want to see working BT video...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    That's true it's simply hidden wifi and has nothing to do with BT connection that we use for music listening. BT technology stays the same it uses shortwaves to connect to devices, only software layer has improved a lot, but it's limited. I can confirm that apple managed to push very good AAC...

    correction no dedicated video protocols over BT due to its nature and limitations :)

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I don’t want to go back and forth with you. This A/V is just: “The Audio/Video Distribution Transport Protocol (AVDTP) is used by the advanced audio distribution (A2DP) profile to stream music to stereo headsets over an L2CAPchannel intended for video distribution profile in the Bluetooth”...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    This is the link of what bluetooth is “capable” off.. As I said in BT connectivity numbers doesn’t have much in common with real-life experience. Better show me an app/phone that is capable to transmit video over BT. Ok if not found at least give me a codec which transmits video over BT :) Large...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Well for iphone users be aware that Lotoo S1 will have background noise/EMI if you will use mobile data. For me it makes S1 unlistenable. With WIFI only S1 is nearly silent, plane mode dead silent. I've ordered EMI shielding tape+wooaudio cable, will try to shield an inner shell of S1 and see...

    Oppo PM-1 has bigger driver than PM-3 and I believe is way better sounding HP. I’m wondering as well if these paid bit perfect players like audirvana make an audible SQ difference between itunes or streaming services

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Some of these EQ presets are really good and does the job for me, but EQ'ing manually has it's limitations as well, my colleague was trying to set his HD650 close to my PM-3 sound and while he got closer with one music track, once I put something more bass heavier hd650 started to burp. As well...

    But so does many other cheaper models. If price/performance ratio is the main thing that matters I don’t think you need to punch above 5$ costing earbuds on aliexpress

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    So if such a tiny device can have that many quality EQ presets why can't other dac's ? Even with no EQ set, my pm3 hp sounds way better than with iphone, I can hear that planar omphh in bass on lower volumes, where through a phone it can go shouty/edgy, but dead. Might be as pm3 are underpowered...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I bought in ears “earsonics em10” and was so disappointed that at the beggining I wanted to sell them, but this dongle improved the sound and even my oppo pm-3 sounds way better with it. I use different EQ settings though which are available on S1. Even with none it sounds a bit warmer for me...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Yes exactly, I’m not sure how it’s advertised though. Only thing that annoys me is interference with phone, but I preffer this in exchange of what I can hear via S1

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    I can’t comment on standalone dac’s as I bought only budget, portable dac/amp combo for mobile use.HA-2 sounding cleanest, but with S1 presentation is on different level for me. There is a track “Borusiade - A body” and there is a part where vocals starts echoing left-right channel, with s1...
