    Ghost of Tsushima is a must-buy

    Probably the best looking game I have seen. Make no mistake - I have a PC with 2080Ti and have seen what AAA games look at 4K HDR with all options maxed out these days. And Ghost of Tsushima is just a PS4 game (obviously you will have to play on a 4K TV and PS4 Pro to get the most out of it)...

    Current high end IEM that sounds closest to Westone ES5?

    I lost one side of my ES5 a few years back, and since then I have bought numerous other TOTL customs and universals, including the K10, Layla, Legend X and Tia Fourte, but none of them seems to be able to give me the smooth and lush mids and good bass - the almost LCD-2 like sound signature, if...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I have a Tumi which is practical for business trips but too bulky for ordinary use. That said if I get a Hermes I doubt if I would use it everyday. If I get the IEM I would certainly listen to it - but probably not a lot coz I already have a ton of them and these flagships just keep coming out...

    Would you guys choose the IER-Z1R or a Hermes briefcase? I know it is a strange question but it is related to my upcoming birthday present...

    AK SP1000 vs. AK380 ?

    AK240 is actually pocketable, this is why I keep it.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I am looking forward to the pairing of amps and SP1000 units. Cu SPK + Cu Amp, Cu SPK + SS Amp, SS SPK + Cu Amp, SS SPK + SS Amp... It would be an interesting comparison.
