    Effect Audio cables thread

    I have extensively tested all the Effect Audio range with the Solaris and by far the best pairing is the Janus Dynamic.

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    I own both (amongst many other Noble offerings) and I would say that the Encore has a significantly different sound (particularly in the lower and higher ends as well as the imaging, placement and separation). The K10 is a classic but the Encore is a masterpiece. Add a cable like the Effect...

    No. I think I maybe made a mistake in not trying different tips, now that you mention it.

    CanJam SoCal 2019 Impressions thread

    Loads of great stuff at Canjam Socal. Best IEMs I heard were the new 64 audio unnamed flagship. Really spectacular. Close runners up were the Jomo Audio Trinity, the TOTL hybrid SoftEars (Moondrop) and the Shozy x AAW Pola 39. Was surprisingly not a huge fan of the Noble Khan. I'm a huge...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    I think it really depends what IEM you are pairing with them. They are both spectacular cables. The Basso is amazing on my U18ts and the Dynamic is amazing on my Solarises. Unfortunately I could only afford one but I sure wish I could have both.

    Effect Audio cables thread

    Honestly, the Janus Dynamic was the better pairing with the Andromeda for me and an absolutely superb pairing with the Solaris too. I even commented to Eric that it was as if the Janus Dynamic was created specifically for the Solaris. It will undoubtedly be my next Effect Audio purchase (apart...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    I had the great pleasure of meeting Eric at Canjam Socal and getting to try out the whole range of cables with multiple IEMs (U18t, Solaris, Katana, Encore and Andromeda). He was incredibly accommodating and it was so great to hear his thoughts on all the best pairings for each IEM (which were...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Yes. I’ve listened extensively to both the regular SP1000M and the Gold variant. The Gold is definitely warmer but still VERY detailed. It’s a slightly richer (and, dare I say, fuller) sound than the standard SP1000M. The Gold is my preferred signature of the two by far and, paired with the...

    HIBY R6 - DAP Dual DAC Balanced Out - Great Reviews and Over 500% Funded @ Indiegogo!

    The latest update keeps disconnecting bluetooth, then reconnecting, then disconnecting on an endless cycle. The error message "com.android.bluetooth keeps stopping" giving you the options to "open app again" or "close" app. Clicking either does nothing to stop this endless cycle. @Joe Bloggs...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Thanks for the suggestion but it’s definitely an official Samsung charger as it was purchased at an official Samsung store. My SP1000M’s symptoms seem to be those of a faulty battery (which was clearly the problem with my previous one) but it seems like crazy bad luck to have two in a row from...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Appreciate the guidance but the charger that I am already using is to the specs quoted by A&K so it shouldn’t be a problem. And I am using the supplied cable too.
