    HiFiMan Susvara

    Well after a week with the Susvara and the DHC Prion 4s cable I can say I have zero regrets. Didn't take long to get dialed into the sound, which is very addictive. I have really loved the Abyss for the last 2 or 3 years, first having then Phi CC and then the TC for the last year. My impression...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Yeah it is alot more subtle than the TC. Which is kind of what I wanted but it is not as immediately impressive as the TC. I spent some hours with the Susvara last night and there is alot of nuance to the sound and vocals can sound very emotive. It is just not as bombastic as the TC so it is an...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    New member of the Susvara club here. Picked up a Prion 4s cable with it also. Having the Superconductor on the TC and having owned the Lazuli Ref before I must say the Prion 4 is head and shoulders above those ergonomically (even at 8ft). Now to letting the burn in and the brain burn commence...

    Matrix Audio Mini-i 3 and Mini-i Pro3 DAC

    Did some more reading on various sites and currently it is just not Roon certified and cannot be used as an actual roon endpoint, have to push from the phone via airplay. not the same. I believe Matrix are trying very hard to get the device certified though.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    I just picked up a new TC yesterday. Compared to my Abyss Phi with CC pads there is more detail but out of the box (I have probably 5 hours on it) the soundstage is noticeably smaller. Anyone else notice this?

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Hi, I picked up the Abyss Phi when I had the Dave, I did not have an external amp. At the time I was using the HE1000, which replaced my Utopia previous to that. I was running the Abyss Phi with CC pads direct off the Dave. After a week I put the HE1000 up for sale as I much preferred the Abyss...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Hey, I currently have an Abyss Phi that I am using straight from DAVE. I think it sounds excellent but of course have the itch to hear a decent amp in the middle. It appears many think the Abyss Phi benefits from an amp over DAVE, though some are on the other side of the fence. I am considering...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    Quick question for the Formula S owners. I recently picked up a Phi CC and I am considering a Formula S to throw in between it and the DAVE. Does the Formula S output the same power from the 1/4 inch as the other output types? Sorry but I am an amp noob. thanks

    Audeze LCD i4 TOTL In-Ear Monitor Discussion

    I recently received the Effect Audio Leonidis II for my i4's. My rig is either Surface Pro to Hugo 2 via Curious USB cable + Roon with i4 DSP, or as mentioned with my M Scaler added. Anyways I have had a handful of decent aftermarket cables before for other in ears like the Tia Fourte and Zeus...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I see your point Amberlamps, however having heard Dave + Blu II, which essentially gave me tingles I am very happy with my decision. Every time I have heard Dave by itself it has left an impact on me, TT2 did not. I expect the gains of adding an M Scaler to both DAC's is relative. In regards...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Re TT2 vs Dave, my opinion is that it depends on the headphones you intend to use. I have owned the Utopia's for over a year now (with Danacable Lazuli Reference) and I am still very happy with them, from a sound perspective first but also from a build quality, design and comfort perspective...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    For sure. I sold my WA8 after I had the Hugo 2 for 3 weeks. The WA8 is of course a very different flavour though to the chord dac’s. Once I got addicted to the speed of the H2 I found it hard to fully enjoy the WA8. I expect the TT2 will outclass the H2 handidly. However whilst I was going to...
