    AUDIOVALVE LUMINARE: an Universal Headphone Amp with three operating modes: Low Impedance / High Impedance (OTL) and STAX

    Perhaps the german review should be taken with a grain of salt:

    D marc0's Journal: My Head-fi Journey

    Yes, in the last months several promising IEM came out, Fostex TE-05, T-Peos H300 and Dunu DN 2000 are examples. But the Altone 200 is even more attractive, since it has (despite the bullet shape) a small housing and a very affordable price.   The treble should not be a problem, I'm used to...

    D marc0's Journal: My Head-fi Journey

      So the SQ of the Altone 200 is equal or better than the TF10?   Than I should order them, until the preorder runs out. (sold my Tf10 due fit problems, but loved the sound quality)   Anyway, also thank you for your great reviews, they are helpful.

    T-PEOS Altone200 - 3 - Way - Hybrid Discussion Thread.

    Recently I sold my Triple Fi 10, since I had fitting problems. That was very sad, I really loved the resolution, soundstage and signature of the TF10.   The Altone200 looks promising, I like the relative small housing and it's fine to have a reasonable price due a plain design, packaging and...

    New Custom-to-Universal IEMs: InEar StageDiver 2/3

    Hm, maybe your mail is unanswered, since the staff of Inear currently exhibits at the "prolight + sound" fair in Frankfurt Main/Germany:     Within the "prolight + sound" fair the StageDiver 2 "S" and StageDiver 3 "S"...

    +1   A <1 Ohm output would be very useful for multi-driver IEMs.

    FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123

    Thank you, the comparison with the C4 is very helpful. I will read it attentively   Yes, I tend to be little sceptical, when it comes to sound difference with pricey gear.   To be honest, with the Beyer T1, I didn't hear a huge sound difference between a DacMagic and a DVD-Player for...

    FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123

    That's not the answer I wanted to hear...*g* (I hoped for a minor difference in terms of sq, to go with the X5)   The O2 seems to be a great device, but the X5 is also very temping for it's sound quality combined with portability and a affordable price.   Well, it will be a hard choice...

    FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123

    Well, the amping power is not so important for me, all of my phones are efficient.   However, an output with < 1 Ohm should be useful for my the TF10 and other multi-ba iems. X5 and O2/ODAC definitely provide this.   But is there a considerable difference in factors like soundstage and...

    FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123

    Has anyone compared the sound quality of the X5 to the O2 with ODAC?   I consider to buy the O2/ODAC for my Triple Fi 10, TDK IE800 and Philips X1. All of them are quite efficient and don't need much power.   Since the price of the X5 is not too far away from a O2 with ODAC, it might be an...

    AKG K812 Pro

    Well, I suppose the hasty price increase might be a plain marketing decision by Harman, to match the potential price of the upcoming flagships from Sennheiser and Sony. It is unlikely, that the new flagships will have the same MSRP as the current ones.   And, at least for the masses, a high...
