    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    This is kind of annoying i thought 2.5mm jacks are unreliable enough. Now their ports are flimsy too. This is a big one. Honestly it never get any abuse on my side apart from being in a pocket. It just keeps getting worse. I think i will look into getting socket replaced, no other choice...

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    Could someone test something for me please. When you have your cable in 2.5mm jack, could you push the top of jack termination laterally and see if you start loosing contact on 1 side of your iems? I have started having this issue and wander if this is normal. Tried it with 2 cables with same...

    Nah. Its too niche for me. I need a portable dap. And dx300 is already not portable as far as i am concerned. Otherwise i would invest the same money to a decent desktop DAC/amp stack. There is no in betweens for me. And desktop gear would get little love anyway with my routine. That said...

    Well then if @Tristy would consider dx300 with nutube amp im mind. Price would come out almost in line with M8. At this point dx300 would upper hand in software i believe unless m8 got over its bugs. Also dx300 has best wifi connection i have tried. Problem is its a bloody brick. So much so...

    Pre-order the new Effect Audio Centurion and receive an exclusive MusicTeck gift!

    I would be laughing if it had some typical plastic sleeving sticking out of jack termination on a 4k cable. If you buy cable of this kind of caliber tou would expect to have as exclusive with no dyi-y crap in it. Its a bloody jewelery at this price point. So i must be flawless. It does look...

    Oh. Forgot that there are still daps without it lol. Dx300 while i loved its synergy with LX i think Odins mids might clash. The other issue on dx300, it has is upper treble roll off. You might loose a bit of sparkle. But soundstage while not as wide as something like R8, has very good depth...

    Be careful with Odin and dx300 combo. Upper mids will be very present. Grab a n8. Its got tubes and should have good stage. Everything else sucks though.

    Interesting, i find SD++ having marginally better soundstage than AE07s. I do agree about mids though but it only mainly affects lower mids, the way i hear it.

    Interesting. I thought that if they go for such a tuning they might aswell make it spacious sounding. Not sure how different are C from C-CU but looking and later ones graph bass is not neutral, but subbass is actually rolled of to abyss. That must sound like banging a spoon into an empty can of...

    So it seems traillii is simply wider in stage technically and not just some sort of tuning trick. Well it better be at that price😄 On a side note has anyone has a chance to compare odin to Obravo Ra C-Cu. I think they are semi open so should be quite spacious. Unfortunately, Obravo seem to...

    Is that something to do with treble presentatation? Is traillii brighter? I mean i remember u18t with its tia tweeter makes sound quite spacious in treble. But everything else is slightly detached and while i might be wrong, as I did not audition u18t and odin back to back. It felt like odins...

    Odins stage is cramped? Which iems dont feel cramped in your opinion the? Could you tel me which iem(s) you heard doing it better? The only ones that i have heard that beat odin was Audeze LCDi4 as they are open backs. But their tinality is like they were just pulled out of washing mashine.

    Well if it was just about tonality than i think Odin would not have enough to sway me over from LX. But Odins spacious, grand staging and air between notes is what really floors me. Even when comparing with LX, which already has massive soundstage and superb separation
