    Upgrading from an Ibasso P3+

    I'm still using mine, awesome amp and very portable with the aaa batteries. Tried playing around with new chip sets?

    Does the RSA predator require burn-in?

    If you look on old Predator threads in the portable amp section, you will find the Predator benefits from 1000's of hours burn in to fully tighten up. Once done, it does sound very. very nice.

    Is it possible to determine if a Ety ER4 is a P or S model whithout listening to it?

    If you have a mini multimeter, take it along with you. The resistance in the 4P signal cable will be 27 ohms, and 100 in the 4S.

    Can-con 2 (Sydney 2012) Meet Aug 18th 3:30 to 8:30pm (near Epping station)

    Tralucent Audio was a nice addition. Their iems were superb, but for me, for what i use iems for, my er4's do the job admirably. Their little amp was outstanding though. I thought i had heard it all, from iBasso's very tweakable amp and amp/dac combos' to Xin's offerings- their little amp...

    budget audiophile flac portable player?..

    I second the call for the Cowon iAudio 7. 16 gb, really really good battery life, fantastic sound quality, handles all formats. This is my main rig now, paired with ety ER4p's it is a superb rig- you just have to learn to live with the user interface (if only it was like the Sony S63* series).

    'Can Con' Sydney meet 10/07 Unique Melody,, Jaben Australia, Twisted Cables & Krispy Kables to join us~ Major prize giveaway by Jaben Aus~

    This hall isn't a council building. It is the masonic temple on York Street- a rub of the nose, followed by the scratch of the crotch whilst your left trouser leg is raised 3 1/2" above the ankle whilst facing East, in the right company, can produce some unexpected results. I will have more...

    Let me know the final/preferred date and i will see if i can get hold of the keys to a nice old hall in Fairfield for the day. Lots of tables, solid brick building with concrete floor and large enough to easily hold a national meet (if ever needed).

    P4 the Warbler a new portable amp from iBasso . . first impression pg 3 . images Pg 6&7 . . .

    Ron, quick question, is the P4 a noticeable step up from the P3+ sonically? The P3+ has the advantage of being powered by batteries you can buy in a supermarket. Does the sonic difference outweigh the ease of battery replacement aspect with the P3+?

    Anything in current production that can match the Xin SuperMicro (size/quality/price)?

    For the size, i have heard nothing that comes close to the supermicro. It is an amazing little amplifier, you could almost say jawdropping. I have listened to a few small sized amps from fiio and ibasso, and as good as they all are, none compare to the supermicro.

    Replacement cable for ER4's ?

    Good day folks,   I have just caught my ER4 cable once again, and the sound has dropped out of one of the channels. I have emailed Etymotic enquiring about a replacement cable, but after my last dealing with them, as good as their service was, it reeks of effort just to replace a cable.  ...
