    Second that. I don’t need android. Would love a small, stripped down R2R dap. The hamstrung UI didn’t fully lose me but the low output power does. Exciting device nevertheless. Look forward to impressions

    Gosh I don’t remember re home button and N3pro which I briefly owned once upon a time. Three albums at a time?!? Ugh. Five at a glance was bad enough. Have to know what you want to hear I guess, because browsing will be unpleasant

    I’d love to read a few comparisons between Thieaudio Oracle/Monarch and new Oriolus, the Szsz-thing.

    The Watercooler-- Impressions, philosophical discussion and general banter. Index on first page. All welcome.

    Love(d) this album. Saw them live 1986(?) Rochester NY. First time stoned. Strictly contact. Angriest crowd I’ve ever been in. Bruce Dickenson stopped mid song and irately threatened someone in the audience for spitting on him. Fella got stabbed in the floor. Total turn off. Never listened...

    ThieAudio Signature Series Tribrid IEMs

    I tried them on Oracle. Signature sounded too diffuse for my taste. Great tips though. I attached the new Spin Fit W1 tips last night and was pretty satisfied. It all came together sonically. W1 is like Azla crystals, I believe, but narrower bore and less prone to losing shape. Cheers Edit...

    ThieAudio Signature Series Tribrid IEMs

    I’m getting excellent fit from pretty much any tip I use. I tend to avoid foams but maybe give ‘em a try. Trying to find a narrow sweet spot without increasing bass

    ThieAudio Signature Series Tribrid IEMs

    I asked for comparison because Oracle bass is at times rather too potent for my taste especially with tips that constrict the nozzle opening. The rub is, those tip types increase stage, separation, clarity. Great iem for sure

    It’s more than pulling; try pinching too. Get a firm grip with thumb and index finger. As you pull straight up also pinch at the same time, as close as you can, right where the plug sits flush to the socket. Doing so should require less overall upward pulling force

    Greetings. Penon Legend iem for sale. 13 BAs (x2), 3 tuning switches. Purchased new from Penon a few months back. I am the only/original owner.

    Moondrop in-ear monitors Impressions Thread

    Moondrop SSR. Wow! Bought my set soon after initial release, never bothered much with em. Decided to bring them with me on a trip outside of US. Spin fit 360s (spacer ring on iem nozzle). Original Oriolus Isa 4.4 cable. Plugged it into Hiby R6 20, medium gain. Marvelous! Throw some MSEB...

    Astell & Kern Kann MAX

    After determining Dignis has nothing in the works for KMax I opted for the AK Italian leather. The blue-green is a nice color. Nevermind the cost. OTT obvio. But after spending for KMax I’m gonna flinch over that much more? Anyways the feel is also satisfying, fits snug. Side button access less...

    Were you able to score the Amber cable from a US dealer?

    Yes, happens to my unit also. Warm, yes; hot, no. Never been hot to the touch even high gain, volume 70. Seems normal to me.

    DX320 ROHM dac chips, Android 11, AMP11MK2s. 660 Tool and Original firmware .img on 1st page. New FW: 2.03.855

    I really can’t do much better than I’ve already poorly wrote—dx300 sounded awesome like full size speakers in my ears, liquidy, full, analog, powerful (wattage-wise). I haven’t had it for over a month. Memory is shaky. KMax, I hazard to state, has perhaps more space between instruments, more...

    Astell & Kern Kann MAX

    I have to wonder if I can hear hissing on my all-BA iem because KMax amp is perhaps too powerful for such even on low setting? Hoping this can be addressed via firmware update without charging sound signature.
