    I tested with Burson Soloist 3XP/Composer 3XP combo and Conductor 3XR. Very nice indeed. That you don't need a lot of power doesn't mean it hurts. (unless in high gain, because you could damage your IEMs😂)

    Not yet. Good idea though. ;-) The cable on Bravado 2 is good sound wise. It's just quite stiff.

    I never heard the nemesis. Looking at the tech inside, the MK2s are way ahead of their predecessors.

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    I wanted to buy UAPP. Problem is, it only works when you're online as it constantly checks for the license. I asked the developer about this and they were kinda coy about the issue. Has that changed? Can you use it offline?

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Firmware update I can't update the firmware on my N6II. Neither OTA nor local. The device has a rather old version 1.xx installed and shows 2.2en available.

    The cable is standard 2 pin, so you can swap it. You can see in the first picture that I swapped it for another cable. Also, Shozy now offers a 4.4mm balanced version

    It leaks some sound as it is a semi open back design. Also sound leaks in, so you can hear what's going on outside.

    I am experiencing some bugs, especially when using the search: Some keyboard buttons (the ones on the left side of the screen) simply dont work. Also, are you planning to release further firmware updates for N8? Thanks
