    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    Sound very good - open and airy. Neutral to warm tonality. Very detail. Good right bass. The he1000se is not that easy to drive. Volume 125/150 and I listen at medium. Jalo's got old ears so he always turn everything max. Not sure which camp you're falling in. Jalo can give you a better...

    Astell&Kern new flagship A&Ultima SP2000

    It sure got enough power for iems. Any iems on the market currently I believe. Ier-z1r is considered hard to drive for iems but it's still an iem. Lol. Then you got nothing left to lose for not trying and keep on your journey. You almost there. So close... lol

    Cascade Headphone by Campfire Audio

    @KB We don not hear the Cascade as boomy, the bass is prominent but we went to extraordinary lengths to make sure the low freq was very tight, and we feel we did a good job here. Yes I like electronic music, hip hop, rock and EDM and the Cascade excells at such. I hope people can come to the...

    Metrum Pavane

    Thanks for inputs Tony. That link belong to Grizzlybeast, I think and I read many times already. I'm still cannot come up with a conclusion for the sound of the Holo. I got an idea for the sound of Pavane (my type of sound) and an idea for Yggy (stay away from this). Hopefully some of you...

    Metrum Pavane

    Now you're back, he's probably be back as well ;). What's the difference between level 1, 2, and 3 in term of sound? Everything is about the same such as sound but clarity and transparency increase as you move up level or everything is better? Similar to the Holo Spring DAC as you move up level...

    Woo Audio WA8 Review - Head-Fi TV

    WA8 is my first tube amp and I would to play around with tubes. So very likely we have to depend on Woo if we want to roll tubes since the tubes are soldered into the circuit board? Also, if we change tubes for the WA8, would it make small/big change in sound say compare to the bigger tube amp...

    Woo Audio WA8 Review - Head-Fi TV

    In few things - maybe something wrong with your wa8, or something wrong with that CD, or something wrong with your ears. Not normal for max volume unless pair with hard drive cans.

    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    ​Any idea or approximate when it hits the US soil? I had family lived in China and Japan. I could ask them to buy and ship over here for me but if the X5 is coming to the US soon, then I don't want to bother them.

    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    ​Yeah do a comparison between the two that would be great. One thing with the X5-3 is that it got all touch screen and can't do the rubber band like the X5-2. What's the solution for this, tape? Lame!
