      Couple weeks in of listening with the balanced cable... the Ananda can be technically impressive sometimes. Occassionally there's an...

      2.5mm to 3.5mm adapters arrived so I can use my HEX balanced cable on the Ananda now. It is interesting to compare the results. Sounds...

      My Ananda arrived. So now I get to compare against my rose-colored memory of the HEXv2 from 4 months ago. It sounds... quite a bit...

      That's rotten luck. Considering there are decades old planars and electrostats floating around that still work, that people put up for...

      There was no single issue with the HEX for me. The treble could've had a bit more sparkle, the bass could've had a bit more impact, the...

      Your posts were the main thing that made me reluctant. Ultimately the Ananda is well-vetted. The XS is not. I could get it and discover...
