    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Is there a situation when you need to control both at the same time? Form my experience you have to control only one unit, either Soloist in normal mode (Composer is in DAC out mode) or Composer (preamp mode) when the Soloist is in headphone power amp mode.

    iFi audio iDSD Diablo - A portable reference done our way!

    This is clear that you can put many things inside. Did you try to use in on the go?

    iFi audio iDSD Diablo - A portable reference done our way!

    Interesting. I still have a lot of questions to the iTraveller. Yes, it is nice to have it in the package but practically I don't find it very useful. Did you try to adjust volume on the go in the iTraveller? I use the Pelican case 1060 for transportation only (to put it in your backpack if...

    Etymotic EVO: World Tour

    As far as I understand no balanced cable comes with the tour unit, right? Need to find IPX/T2 connectors asap to make a custom 4.4 mm cable at home. Ideally I should listen to it out of a 4.4 mm output of my iDSD Diablo to utilize its fully balanced circuity

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    I believe these are some spare fuses/ IC opamps.

    Etymotic Research EVO impressions and discussion thread

    Great review! The only thing which slightly scares me is the bass, bass, bass topic, taking into account that two drivers out of three produce bass I wonder what is happening with the rest of the spectrum... Hope this is not Earsonics "home sound" when (with the exception of s-em6 v2 and may be...

    You can switch Soloist into headphone power amp mode to bypass it.

    iFi audio iDSD Diablo - A portable reference done our way!

    I do appreciate that they have it in the package. Currently I use Diablo as the only source being far from home and my desktop system. My planars eat the battery in turbo mode very fast so after 3-4 hours I need to use the iPower to keep everything running, and I appreciate that there is no...

    Burson Soloist 3X Performance Head/Pre Amp - 8Wpc XLR with MUSE72320 volume control

    Well, on the other hand this is one of the best price/performance ratio amp in my opinion. I don't count Chinese brands here since this is a different league. I believe that the next quality level would be somewhere at Nimbus US4/5 which are 4-5 times more expensive.

    As per the Manual: green - MQA blue - MQA Studio My unit shows exactly these colors for Tidal Masters with Roon OS at home and with UAPP on the go.

    I tried planar magnetic Dope Audio IEM. Eco mode was just fine. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/dope-audio-earphones-%E2%80%94-unusual-planar-iems.944771/post-16378684

    All etys for me work with 3 flange stock ear tips only - this is the way to keep them firm inside and to get maximum isolation... :wink: Tried many different options with them and always stayed with a 3 flange.
