    iFi audio hip-dac: The Tour!

    May I ask why you would expect people to cover the onward shipping costs of a tour model? They are going to be giving up their spare time and giving your product free marketing, also the turnaround time will be extremely restrictive for those out there who work full time. I believe, as a gesture...

    My adventures with the Jade II had 3 chapters....Chapter I, well documented here already as part of the loaner tour. I had them for a fortnight and sent them on to my friend, audio creator of the best headphone amps I ever heard and one of the best Dacs that money can buy, Dill3000. He raved...

    Reply to review by 'Takeanidea' on item 'HiFiMAN Jade II'

    Whoa...that was sure worth the wait! Impeccable description of the essence of the Jade II, even the Hifiman amp didn't get too much abuse and that's not made by you! Wonderful stuff

    Review by 'Takeanidea' on item 'Status Bt One On Ear Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Headphones'

    Hifiman Ananda

    I had the Ananda on tour. I also have the Fiio M11. The M11 is a good sounding DAP, and it brings out the qualities of the Ananda. It's not thin at all, especially with something as easy to run as the Ananda

    Review by 'Takeanidea' on item 'VE (Venture Electronics) Zen 2 Dice Edition'

    Introduction Purchased by myself from VE directly. Retailing at $158 for a limited time, as of October 2019. Wild Lee, owner and force of nature behind the legendary VE brand, has said that you are basically getting the cable and paying nothing more for the Zen LL Earbuds. Existing Zen owners...

    VE (Venture Electronics) Zen 2 Dice Edition

    VE ZEN II. This is the Dice edition. The Dice is the name given to the cable, which is a triple twisted copper cable. The earbuds are sensitive enough to need no amping and sophisticated enough to perform better with a DAP, DacAmp or Dragonfly/HE Odyssey type ultra portable dac dongle

    Power output of Chord Mojo on max volume

    max output voltage is 5.3w rms. RMS means root mean square. It is a measurement of a sound wave which is dynamic. 3 volts is what a cd player sends as output to an amp; so the Mojo goes much louder than a cd player. You have been lucky; your LCD-XC are unlikely to have been damaged.
