    Went to canjam SG this year, now I'm in a limbo between Z1R and Tia Trio, I found that Trio to have more refined sound especially the bass but less treble sparkle and less grand sound stage. Meanwhile Z1R, I gave it 2 more listening, I must say the sound is a bit less coherent but it conveys...

    >make IEM >any portable source won't drive it to full potential If that is the case, what's the point :triportsad:

    It's similar in a way that it has that u/v shaped tendency but other than that it's a very different presentation, pp8 is very squeaky clean studio feel meanwhile z1r feels more like a cafe type of environment. The bass in z1r is far superior in all ways than pp8 but for the highs I think is...

    I can't stand the Z7 and Z1R headphones, there's just something not right about it for me but somehow I like the IEM.

    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    Ordered my Gumby from my local Schiit distributor, website say Gumby ordered now will be delivered in the week after 10th of August, considering I'm in Asia plus shipping and everything is it possible that I will get it around the end of August?

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Anyone tried fixing dead dial and display by themselves? I mean like soldering out old broken components for a new ones? I never opened my unit but the dial and display is dead since September because of slight power surge, the only solution they give me is to flash firmware which is software...

    Hifiman Edition X

    Been trying to find comparison between the V2 and ether, I can only find between v2 and flow or v1 and ether. Could anyone give me the impression between the two?

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

      the fact that DP-X1 is very digital in nature didn't help the IE800 making harsh sounding tone in some parts of songs, so maybe it's the DX200 itself also but I think it's also the synergy that makes the combo good.

    New Inear Prophile-8

    I made a cable from local shop using eidolic jacks and pin with copper litz cable. I don't want to alter the original cable for balanced so this is the end result lol.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    So I guess the whole unresponsive touch screen issues spawn from low quality screen protector? Not software right? If that's the case then I feel much better.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    I almost expected this to be at least around $1200-$1500, thank god iBasso sees what's happening in the market. I'm totally interested in this as a replacement for my DP-X1 because of the amp module, the looks and possible build quality, hopefully on software front they won't disappoint like X7...

    Astell&Kern AK T8iE MkⅡ(Impressions and discussions thread)

      Yeah, but I suggest you get those bluetooth MMCX adapter just so the cable won't move too much from body movements, I got the mk2 but the connector still feels flimsy (although I still haven't experienced any problem after using it for 2+ months).

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    Hope this will trigger a resurgence of high end DD, I just can't get into BA even the higher end ones.

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    LG might be getting a new adopter here, I'm not sure whether it can replace my DP-X1 but it ticks all the boxes. Such a shame Samsung has to go all through this.
