    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    I could see some finding it slightly bright at times maybe? Even that is a stretch. Weird and wonky sounding? Could not disagree more, but he is entitled to his opinion - I just hope people do take it as gospel.

    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    Haven’t listened listened much to the Clear, but the D9200 would likely be closer to what you’re used to from the AKG, with its slightly elevated bass etc. I found the Clear immensely boring to listen to, as it’s sound signature does nothing to “help” the music, like increased low end or...

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Has this been compared by anyone to the Liquid Gold or Platinum by chance?

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Pretty sure Bricasti makes a delta sigma dac for one, as well as Auralic... and that’s just ones I know off the top of my head. Although, in before those don’t qualify as high end, highly regarded or good sounding by some arbitrary logic, ignoring all their glowing reviews and user feedback...

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    I'll be very interested to hear how that goes, since I'm between the SA-1 and a Liquid Goldx... I know the spark isn't quite the Gold, but I'd wager it has some of the same Cavalli magic of adding some heft to the sound, so to speak?

    Will these be getting a EU price/retailer any time soon?

    Not to put anyone down, this is just my personal opinion, but in my personal experience the XC was so bad, in every regard more or less, that I was honestly surprised how it had gotten so popular, when I heard it - So needless to say I'd consider the D9200 leagues and bounds better.

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

    Has anyone used this with HD800? I'm wondering if its reported "analogue" sound signature might help give the 800 some more body?

    The Liquid Gold is the one I’m leaning more towards too - since I’m generally not into tubes.

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    I’m somewhat hesitant about blind buying amps, since I’ve usually been disappointed with them, including an early Burson in the last - but haven’t heard that one specifically. Ive heard the original Cavalli amps and liked them in part due to the added body/low end they gave fx. My HD800... which...

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Has anyone in here had the chance to compare the SA-1 to either of the Liquid GoldX or Platinum amps? I've been considering one of those for a while, but apparently this amp shares some similarities?

    Denon AH-D9200 - 2018 Flagship - Impressions Thread

    Thank you, thats slightly concerning for me I guess. I know the pads won't be 100% identical, generally, but mine are definitely more uneven than Audeze's pads have been on the numerous pairs of their headphones I've had, or other stitched pads I've had. Especially given that its pleather I'd...

    Not that I know of - you might call me a perfectionist. I'm also an industrial designer, so I tend to pay attention to details. All of that said, I don't see the relevance of any of that: having a loose/wobbly hinge on a brand new 1800€ flagship headphone is not acceptable in my book. Its not a...
