    ibasso DX160 is this normal or is my defective

    There are 2 sleep timers on the unit, one that is under the display setting and then the sleep timer within the Ibasso music app which actually powers off the unit. I will try disabling the sleep timer under the display setting and see what happens. Thanks

    Android music player question

    For those using Android players, can you install 3rd party music players? and will those work with the dac? Or are you stuck with the default music for best performance

    Do different DACS sound different?

    it always made me wonder how good is a top end dac/amp/source vs a mid tier dac/ampsource. Take away from all the aesthetics and just by SQ/performance alone, how much of a jump is it really. Everytime a review is made it always makes the newer version seem that much more amazing. A lot of times...

    Why high end headphones (and IEMs) are (mostly) hype.

    At some point diminishing returns must kick in. And from what I can tell most companies buy ba's from Knowles or have them tune it in a particular way. So I wonder how much "research" these companies are actually doing.

    Opinions - get new IEM or Cans?

    The T2 + looks promising, the Mangird Tea looks like it has a large shell and may be uncomfortable.

    Opinions - get new IEM or Cans?

    I have a 1000-1100 budget. I listen to a variety of music, from Pop, Rock, contemporary, Jazz and etc to alternative (from the 80's, 90's, and up). I listen to some classical music but not really that much. I'd say about 15 percent of my music is classical. Comfort is huge for me, if i can't...

    Opinions - get new IEM or Cans?

    I was looking to replace my current IEM (Westone AM Pro 30, used to be in a band, not anymore). I wanted something that would be usable at my desk when I'm working, when I'm in bed resting or when I go out/travel First place I looked was at the Westone line. I like the westones because they (to...

    Looking for advice on IEM or Source

    I liked the sound signature of the Kanas pro even though it didn't fit completely right. I liked the sound from the final audio B2 (limit amount of time spent on it though). I know that I don't want something that is bass heavy/focused, just bass that is true to the audio recording. And a...

    Looking for advice on IEM or Source

    okay, so your recommendation would to look at IEM if i wanted to instead of trying to replace the Onkyo Dp-S1

    Looking for advice on IEM or Source

    I have tried the Westone, the the AM pro's allow ambient sound to come in so the isolation is much lower than the standard UMPRO 30 (but very comfortable). They sound a a bit forward/mid focus to me but I'm not hating it, I'm actually indifferent which is why it has been so difficult for me to...

    Looking for advice on IEM or Source

    I was using the Kanas pro until my left ear started to hurt (the right is fine). It's not the ear drums it's the out part where the IEM sits. Not sure if it's the weight or what but other IEM that I've tried seem okay so i m guessing it's the Kanas pro. It has gotten to the point where I can't...

    Is the Shanling M0 the best option?

    I was using my ipod touch as a transport with some of my portable DAC's but sadly the touch is dead. I'm looking to replace it but most of the devices that can be used as a transport with a Dac are actually players themselves. After looking around it seems my only choice is the Shanling M0, Now...

    Question about eqing on a dap

    Thanks, for the info. my ears are sort of volume sensitive (never had ear damage). let me explain, Onkyo DP-S1 has a max limit of 60 and when I am listening to music in bed at nights (i am using the Westone Umpro 30, which has an impedance of 56 ohm). My volume is at 7-8 based on the loudest...

    Question about eqing on a dap

    The dap that I am using is a new (Onkyo DP-S1) and I have tested it using the same IEM (westone UMPRO 3) playing the same songs on my iphone, note 4, on my computer, on my friends FIIO Q5, Galaxy S8. I even went to the local audio store around where I am and have loaded the songs into the A&K 70...
