    Effect Audio cables thread

    Last week I've done some cable / IEM swapping over here with the EA Prototypes #37 and #38. A big 'Thank You!' goes out to the folks at EA for sending me these cables in the first place. What a wonderful gesture => highly appreciated guys! Before this I considered the Ares II (US$150) to be the...

    These were also my thoughts... Oh well, time will tell :) Thanks for sharing... looking forward to more impressions (in general) and your pics!

    EarSonics Onyx

    That has also exactly been my experience so far. With some sources the differences between single ended and balanced are simply huge (thinking about my good ol' Pono player in the past), while with other sources the differences can be subtle or not even noticeable (to my ears) at all :) Wow...

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

    My initial thoughts were: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! But all stories have to come to an end at some time I guess. So thanks for all your wonderful contributions / reviews over the past years Daniel! I really enjoyed reading them and I hope that many good things may come on your path in the...

    Reply to review by 'Kerouac' on item 'TINHIFI P1 MAX "Giant Panda" Universal In-Ear Monitor'

    Another great review imo! I like your writing style, which is informative and contains creativity & humor at the same time. This makes it easy to read (no pain at all, as you wrote above) for me. Also nicely done that you compared the two using 15 different signature properties per song. And...

    Rank the IEM's you've heard

    With the LPGT Ti you also have an almost unlimited amount of options to tweak the (low/mid/high) frequencies, for your IEMs when needed. These Lotoo DAPs (I have the basic edition, not the Ti) just have amazing PMEQ imho. I rarely use 'Off' myself. Happy listening! :)

    The Watercooler-- Impressions, philosophical discussion and general banter. Index on first page. All welcome.

    Thank you for sharing this over here (which I just noticed a few minutes ago) in this thread! Some time ago I 'unsubbed' from this thread, not because it ain't interesting (instead, there are lots of interesting posts over here imo). But because I just couldn't keep up with its pace. Sometimes...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    Thanks man! That was exactly my goal: to take the Axiom and the readers on a journey. I hope that the people who do take the time to read it (like you apparently did) will get some joy out of it. Or that they can at least forget about their problems for a moment, while they're reading or...

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

    And here we go! Although this is my 2nd review this year, it is also only my 5th one since 2015. So, I don't consider myself to be some sort of 'professional' reviewer at all. But if you take the time to read this one and listen to the music that comes on your path while doing so, then I hope...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    Although I'm aware that the Effect Audio Axiom ain't a cable and that this is a cable thread. I decided to post a review link here anyway, as there was also some sort of battle going on between three EA cables (in which luckily none of them got hurt) during the writing of this review. Now, in...

    Official Effect Audio Axiom discussion & impressions thread

    It took some time, but here it is, just before the weekend. My EA Axiom review: I realize that it has become quite a long story (which took me the past few weeks to create) in the end. But I hope that if you take...

    Review by 'Kerouac' on item 'Effect Audio Axiom'

    Introduction So, there I was, still catching my breath from a recent Gotham rollercoaster review ride. But somehow it didn't take that long before a new writing opportunity came along. Its name this time? The Effect Audio Axiom! Axiom information on the EA website...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    Oh yes, I can totally understand (because I also still have the Zeus XR myself) why this is a great synergy combination! The Zeus XR is quite analytical (delivering micro details in spades), but it can also use some cable help to bring out the lows a bit more imo. Matching it with an (overly)...
