    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

      I just had to retire my Glove A1 due to a fault and am looking to either find a replacement unit or get something different. How does the Mojo compare to it in a nutshell? Would you choose one over the other?

    The Astell & Kern AK120

    I just received my second hand AK120 from ebay and have to say that I'm blown away. Upgrading from a Rockboxed Clip Zip, the difference is astonishing! I'm using it with my UM Shure SE530x4 reshells and HD-25, and the AK120 is simply a joy. With CD ripped ALAC and FLAC the level of detail is...

    Astell & Kern AK120 impression thread

    Unique Melody can make CIEMS from your old IEMS and as my SE530 cable had broken, I decided to send them to UM to get them reshelled and add an extra driver (4 drivers rather than 3) to the mix and a new crossover to balance the new sound out. They sound fantastic!

    No worries, thanks for the reply.

    Astell & Kern AK120 impression thread

    How does the AK120 sound with the SE535 without amping? I'm seriously considering buying one to go with my UM modded SE530 (+ extra driver) and HD25, heard a few good things about this pairing, but would love another opinion.

    Advice: Modding Custom IEM fit

    A little update, I've been using my wife's clear nail varnish on them which had made a bit of difference, they are certainly coming loose a lot less, but the fit is still off. I might try and slather on some more varnish in key areas over the next week or so, but if that fails I'll see about...

    Amp for hd25-1II

    I was really happy with my Rockboxed Clip Zip straight into my HD25. Nice and punchy, great detail and soundstage compared to my iPhone and you can dial in a lot more bass/treble if you want with the EQ settings. I'm sure an amp will help but if you are on a budget then I can strongly recommend...

    REVIEW - COLORFLY C3

    Quote:   Thanks for this initial impression. I'm currently using a Clip Zip (Rockboxed) with my UM SE530x4 and love it, especially the extra bass which I can dial in (+24db + Rap EQ is skull-crushing!). Was seriously considering this C3 but unless I hear that the overall SQ is a big step...

    REVIEW - COLORFLY C3

    Quote:   The curse of high-end audio! I know that feeling, having bought CIEMs and got a Clip Zip (which I love), I'm still fighting the urge to sell all my worldly possessions to but a Colorfly C4 or HM801.   Sounds like you have a pretty sweet setup already, but if you are going to...

    REVIEW - COLORFLY C3

    Thanks for the great review, very happy to see that Colorfly have brought out a more affordable DAP. I could never justify getting a C4 but this is very tempting indeed.   My only gripe is the lack of gapless playback, something I'm very picky about. Shame there's no ALAC support either...

    Advice: Modding Custom IEM fit

    I'm pretty reluctant to given that my first set took 8 weeks and the remould took 9 1/2 weeks to arrive. Add to that the fact that AmpCity (UM dealer in the UK) have gone kaput and I'm sure you can see why I'm holding off sending them back. The fit isn't so bad that it's unbearable, it's more of...

    Advice: Modding Custom IEM fit

    Wow, thanks for the advice on this one. I might have to give those comply wraps a go at some point. My monitors seem to have a better fit when it's hotter (guess my ears swell up a bit) so once autumn/winter/british summer kicks in I'll try them out. I think I've figured out where the bad fit is...

    Advice: Modding Custom IEM fit

    I recently got a pair of CIEMs from Unique Melody and while they seemed to fit quite well when I first got them, the left monitor is now a little loose on the fit, leaking in a little sound especially when I bite down. It's not compromising the sound much, in fact the bass is fine even when the...

    Unique Melody Remold Impressions Thread

    Finally!   The SE530x4s have turned up. Colours are correct (though the yellow is a little smokey), fit is perfect and the very quick listen I had in my office left me in audio heaven.   It's been a very long saga and I'd be hard pressed to recommend UM due to their long wait times, or...
