    It was in my prior comparison. I prefer the soft modded WM1A for it's unique flavor.

    It does not. 3.5 is serviceable, 4.4 is completely crushed. This is with 4.4 output - 3.5 setting still impacts 4.4.. it's... weird. I'll need to test 3.5mm output on its own. It is likely much quieter.

    The iDSD BL has a different presentation. Less detailed and clear with a three blob kind of soundstage. On the inverse it was more forgiving and musical.. warmer. I've got an iDSD Signature coming my way to do some comparisons which should be interesting. BL VS Gryphon though I prefer the...

    I have no ability to delete posts. Personally though I believe comparing THD numbers doesn't paint much of a picture when comparing the two devices - which I've done extensively.

    I'd say it's a design issue honestly. The THX (which has a LOT of power) and Fiio gear, among some others have no noise floor with my IEMs. Even my WM1A is significantly quieter. The Gryphon was not designed with measurements in mind I can only assume and Ifi figured it wasn't a big deal because...

    That's because you posted them on my review, not this one.

    That is only one metric, and not one I'd consider relative to absolute performance. They sound quite different despite the on paper .002% THD difference.

    Earlier in the Gryphon thread I had posted some early impressions and comparisons of the xDSD Gryphon compared to some other units. While those impressions still stand after a good number of weeks I've become more familiar with the device and would be happy to share my full review. The xDSD...

    I think some of your impressions would make the negative list, but otherwise a solid review!

    Huge amount of features. Stronger DAC/Amp. Really the list goes on, it's a massive featureset.

    Ah, I failed to notice it was your job to write reviews for a company so maybe that is why things came across the way they did. Here is a picture of the A90 pot. Looks to be the same one - for the price I'd just hoped they would have put in a relay. Otherwise, looks like a nice unit...

    Most of this review sounds like an advertisement. I'd suggest adding in some personal preference and character in the future. Surely there's more to gripe about, despite it being an overall great amp. That volume pot looks a lot like the janky one in the A90.

    Alright! Time for an in-depth review of the Burson Play folks. Before I get into the details I'll tell you a bit about myself and my preferences. I've been into headphones and my quest for improved sound started when discovering my trusted FiiO E11 + Galaxy S combo. This combo is still alive...

    Review by 'Voxata' on item 'Cayin i5'

        Today is my long overdue review of the Cayin i5. I had trouble getting this review complete due to a holiday emergency and a slow recovery however, better late than never.  *disclaimer* I've received this unit on a tour for a week in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not affiliated with...
