    NEW Shanling M6 PRO - Dual AKM AK4497EQ DAC, New Improved Amplifier, 600 mW Output, Android OS, Snapdragon 430CPU 4GB, 2.5 & 4.4 Balanced

    My interest is piqued after receiving email today about this. However I am a tad concerned about the "Loseless Hi-Res" feature.

    Audiolab 6000CDT dedicated CD Transport

    I have the CDT arriving tomorrow. I discovered I missed listening to physical CDs and wanted to buy a CD transport. My collection of over 1600 compact discs have been ripped to FLAC and I listen via SONOS, Bluesound, and/or Cambridge CXN. In fact, I own a lot of Cambridge gear: CXN, CXU, CXA60...

    Is a DAP audibly better (v.s. a Samsung phone) for easily-driven IEMs?

    Probably not. However, my number one reason to opt for dedicated DAP over phone is the ability to listen to music without annoying notifications interrupting the listening experience. Sure I could go through the rigmarole of disabling phone stuff and such but why?, I still need the phone stuff.

    Acoustic Research M2 Audiophile-Grade Hi-Res Portable

    Don’t sites like APKPure or APKMirror offer older versions? Not sure anymore as I just stick with ARMP Pro now on the M2

    You should be able to get an APK for it.

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    $200 US + shipping. I opted for cheapest shipping thru regular post and it still arrived within a week with tracking.

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    I received a Null Audio Tiburon UP-OCC Cryo Copper cable today. Ordered for the EX1000 along with 4.4mm balanced plug. I have to say that this is FANTASTIC! The connectors actually fit the earpieces and threads tighten up perfectly. Much better than the previous NA cable purchased a couple of...

    Lots of folk here seem to already have DX160 yet there is no listing for purchase on iBasso site. Explain.

    ZX300 remains in my DAP stable. This ZX500 is very underwhelming.

    Tool - Fear Inoculum

    The physical Special Edition CD is well worth the effort to obtain (at normal msrp)

    Tool - Fear Inoculum

    There's a discount code for HDTracks here. Also, I just bought the FI Special Edition CD on for $75 CDN which isn't bad considering what it is.

    TOOL on HDtracks

    Oddly enough Tool as an 'artist' and all their catalogue including Fear has been pulled from Bandcamp. I can't find it anyway. I read over on Steve's forum that the BC download of Fear in FLAC was 44.1/24 when it was there. I ended up snagging an elusive Special Edition CD on Amazon for $75 CDN...
