    MQA Deep Dive - I published tracks on Tidal to test MQA

    Great true review about MQA. I was one of those who was conviced that I am getting better than lossless from MQA. Actually I wanted to hear the difference and some cases, it is sounding better than CD quality files but not always. So I subscribed to Tidal for last 6 months or so to evaluate for...

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    I am still enjoying my Saturn One very much and if you like the sound of Beyer T1, I would choose Jupiter One over Saturn One. Of course, I haven't heard the Saturn Two yet so not sure how they compare to Saturn One. Either of these Hyland headphones are not typical bass heavy hitter. But they...

    I finally received my pair of Jupiter One. And I have been listening to it every chance I get. This is my initial impression of this headphone.

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    I haven't tried stereo tube amp yet. I do have tube headphone lamps and enjoy their sound very much. Hopefully I will have a chance to purchase tube amp for my stereo in near future. Bluesound Node 2i is definitely keeper for me and I just attached USB harddrive with bunch of my FLAC music...

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    For my experience, to combat the solid state harshness other than going full blown tube amp/preamp, I used the tube buffer (Musical Fidelity) for my two channel system for number of years with good result using solid state amps.

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    Okay, I compared several of Tidal MQA files vs FLAC files and I can definitely tell differences on quality for the better but only certain songs. Not sure if that was due to strictly MQA characteristics or some other aspects that I don't know about. Right after today's church service, I came...

    Tidal Masters & MQA Thread!

    I have tried Spotify premium as well as Pandora for several years but usually my listening session rarely goes over 30 minutes or even less. And I switch to LP or CD listening which last few hours sometimes afterward. So I have been using Spotify or YouTube music for casual listening or finding...

    Yes even the old favorites like M3 and PPA will benefit greatly with Sparkos opamps replacement. These amps never sounded this good. Even Firestone Cute amp sounding great with Saprkos.

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    Just about every Grado headphones that I tried, I preferred G-cushion but I actually prefer L-cushion on my Saturn One. I do love about Saturn One's large soundstage though but it is not artificially large in my ears. I haven't tried tube amp yet but Headroom Millett Hybrid amp really sounds...

    Grado durability issues ?

    Wow, consider yourself extremely lucky. I have Koss KSC75 and Koss Porta Pro both but to my ears, these don't hold a candle against the Grados that I have heard and/or own. They are one of the best bang for the buck for sure but I definitely prefer Grado. I guess it is true that everyone hears...

    The Hyland Headphones Saturn One, Saturn Two and Jupiter One thread

    I had a chance to listen to my Saturn One for about two weeks now. Others have already done a good job describing its sound signature so I am going to give my first impression briefly. Hopefully it will help others who is thinking about purchasing it. First of all, this headphone was built by...

    I just received the M1060 from one of the head-fier (ver.2) fully intended to sell the headphone if I am not satisfied and get something else as planar magnetic driver headphones from such companies Hifiman, Audeze, etc. This is my first time for planar headphone listening session and I must...

    If you could only have one pair.

    HD 600 or ER4S, either would satisfy my headphone needs although they are polar opposite of its intended usage

    Help me pick a DAP

    @nickwin   Don't get discourage by my comment regarding ER4S with X3 II without an external amp. This DAP is sounding much better than iPod Classic without an external amp. If you forget about all these getting extra sound quality with an amp, etc., after about 10 minutes or so listening to...

    Help me pick a DAP

    I still have functional iPod classic and recently bought X3 II. Its UI wasn't that bad for me. It is not as easy nor intuitive as iPod Classic but I got used to it real quickly. I might not like the ER4S with X3 II without an external amp but ER4P will be very nice for that DAP. If you have a...

    Of course, if I am on the go with just X3 II, I will take other IEM besides ER4S and it will sound great.

    X3 2nd generation is what I have. Once you are used to the ER4S with a good amp, it is tough to go back with just a DAP.
