    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    Are you talking about direct output of Dense usb dongle or through BA300S tube amp per your signature? I guess it is just a matter of pair up synergy and which IEM or amp/headphones you are using. Dense uses old ES9218p dac and no amplifier, the same as in shanling M0 and Q1 and hidizs ap80...

    Westone UM PRO Series Thread

    So, now you can understand my reference to "deflated ball" ;) You get a lot more appreciation going from Pro 10 to Pro 30 when comparing, and more "meh" feeling going the other way. Of course, always subjective and depends on a personal taste, Pro 10 are super comfortable but I reach out to them...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    So everything was working and then stopped? Did you upgrade the fw? How about trying a different usb-c cable going to your laptop or different USB port on your laptop? Happens to me sometimes with other daps (more often with ibasso) and my laptop where port doesn't recognize connected device...

    Interesting machine from Luxury n Precision

    Don't have a regular R2R2k, only Red, and P6 is by far ahead of it when it comes to sound performance (more transparent, better layering, more natural retrieval of details), though it will dependent on pair up (testing it with uni Elysium). A few other things I can confirm, zero hissing with...

    Interesting machine from Luxury n Precision

    Not familiar with LP6 Gold, but saw LP6 Ti at Canjam NYC show. That one was a beast, very powerful. Btw, a few people already asked me if P6 is under powered. I'm not ready for a pair up testing yet, not even ready for analysis, want to keep it on burn in for a few days.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Exactly the tips and the size I'm using now with U18t, while Nio is getting some loving from SpinFits CP145.

    Considering apex modules are available for $99 per pair, wouldn't getting 4 atom xl pairs for $149 makes sense?

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    streaming support? driving something demanding? 2.5mm or 4.4mm? budget?

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Indeed, these are rare and made in limited quantities just for audio shows and dealers to have in the store so customer can audition CIEMs. Surprised a dealer would sell their only demo pair, but I recall @mvvRAZ bought universal N8 demo off dealer in EU in as well.

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    I assume you are comparing A18s and A18t by memory ;), but I'm also having suspicion that something could be off with my review unit. I might have to measure and talk to 64audio. That is a reason I'm holding back from sharing my impressions, just in case if something is off with tia drivers.

    In many cases graph alone won't tell you the full story. Here is a comparison measurement I just did of Nio vs U12t, both with M15 modules. While A/Bing both from LPGT, Nio has a noticeably higher level of sub-bass rumble while in measurements it doesn't look that way. But the rest gives you...

    Campfire Audio Ara

    While this is a combined review with analysis/comparison of new Campfire Releases (Andro '20, Solaris '20, and ARA), I actually put more emphasis on comparison between these three, including the new ARA.

    iBasso DX220Max DAP, a transportable answer to high quality sound reproduction.

    Just saw Valentium posted on FB, they have a custom leather case for DX220 MAX in their Etsy store.

    iBasso DX220Max DAP, a transportable answer to high quality sound reproduction.

    It's true, at full DAC digital volume it could be an overkill for efficient or sensitive IEMs. But that's where this dual volume control comes into play, similar to adjusting pre-amp LO output to give main analog volume control a wider dynamic range. For IEMs, it works better when you drop...
