    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    Are you sure this wasn't just referring to the design changes from Jupiter? The current shells for the Andromeda are rounder than the Jupiter and use different screws. I am very dubious that CFA has decided to halt production and redesign everything.

    No, but I did figure it out. It's a spacer for pairing with an external amp.

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    What is the issue with the scroll wheel that has been corrected? Mine is very often unresponsive until I turn it a few clicks, but I hadn't brought it up, expecting the usual "limited resources blah blah if you want an ipod buy an ipod" response that criticism is met with. However, if this is...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    LO to a UHA-6S.MKII for me. I still think the HO isn't an improvement over a Rockboxed Fuze or Clip+. In my mind, that isn't a dig at all and the extra features of the X1 make it worth the money, but the (X1 into) UHA-6S.MKII is pretty special.

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    I mean the Fuze, not the Fuze+. Mine looks like complete hell because it's lived in my pocket with my keys and whatnot, but it is still going strong after 5 or 6 years. I hadn't really taken the build quality into consideration, but if I factor that and the ability to play higher res files, I...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

      I'm not sure I'd say it's worse than my Rockboxed Fuze, but I'm not sure it's appreciably better either. I am considering getting an E11k to pair with it, but so far, on its own, I think the extra power output is the only edge the X1 has over a Sansa at half the price. Edited to add that...

    New RHA IEMs: The MA750i and MA600i

    I picked up a pair of these a few days ago, looking for something with lower bass extension than the RE400, which I do love. All of the stock tips were incredibly uncomfortable (I have a very hard time finding any tips that don't hurt. I had a pair of Comply T-400 lying around and that those...

    Hifiman IEM's: RE-400 and RE-600

      I had the same problem after three weeks (!!!) and just received my replacement from Hifiman...   ...and the rear of one of the barrels is badly scratched, as well as the left sleeve missing the raised dot. I am wondering if I was sent a prototype. I love the sound and they're by far the...

    PSB M4U1 - Thoughts?

    Quote: The size is my only issue with them. I have a very large head and have to do quite a bit of finagling to get them to fit down over my ears. I don't find the clamping pressure to be too great, but I think it's only a matter of time before the headband cracks based on the sounds it...

    Recommend unto me some IEMs around $200

    I'm looking for some IEMs around the $200 mark. I'll go a bit more if necessary, but less expensive is certainly better. Historically, IEMs and I have not gotten along. I have owned Denon AH-C551K and Hippo VB, but both of them were very uncomfortable. I have pretty narrow ear canals, and the...

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Quote: Thanks! I gather that both of those files were silent? I'm most curious about the 192kHz file. Do they become audible at high volume?

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Thanks! I'll take two out of four. That indicates that the X3 has low distortion at least up to 96kHz. I've had trouble with the warbles files as well. I was hoping for a test of a 192kHz file, but that's at least promising.

    For those of you who have an X3, could someone test these files?
