  1. Looking for an iBasso AMP12 (stock or modded)

    I'm looking to buy an iBasso AMP12. Stock or modded, blue or black. Send me your price shipped to Canada, paid via PayPal (or EMT for Canadian users with excellent feedback). I haven't done a ton of trading on Head-Fi but here's my CAM profile with lots of positive feedback...

    I received the FiR kit from @dleblanc343 today. All is present and accounted for.

    Unique Melody Bone Conduction Family (MEST&MEXT and their siblings) Announcement and Impression Thread.

    I had a chance last night to do some back and forth between the MEST Mk2, the VE EXT, and the VE Phonix and while there are things that each of them do better than the MEST, neither of them do everything better than the MEST and offer no compelling reason (IMO) for a 2x - 3x price bump.

    Won't be any worse than the stock case. The DX300 doesn't run very hot anyways. Way cooler than my old M11 Pro

    Got my case from Easecase today, it’s pretty nice. Seems well made.

    Happy 25th Birthday to OK Computer.

    On May 21st 1997 Radiohead released their third studio album Ok Computer and began their pivot from the early guitar driven Pablo Honey and The Bends into their experimental electronic sounds that would reach full fruition with the 2000 release of Kid A. OK Computer bridged those styles...

    Unique Melody Bone Conduction Family (MEST&MEXT and their siblings) Announcement and Impression Thread.

    Very little. I've always been very sensitive to sibilance and it has prevented me from liking headphones that I otherwise loved (Denon D2000, HE400, IMR R1, 7hz Timeless). If I listen for it on the MEST mk2 I can hear that the SSSS is there but if I don't listen for it, it does not jump out as...

    I love that gold faceplate paint job on the AMP12.

    Mid priced IEM cables thread.

    Got this bad boy today: It’s the CEMA 22awg SPC cable and I had him use the “sword series” hardware instead of the standard carbon fibre style ones. It’s a nice beefy cable and looks great.

    I want the Indigo's so bad. I love my MEST Mk2 more than anything else I've had and I want to just buy the Indigo's, block HeadFi in my firewall and be happy for the rest of my life.

    Eventually. I needed some good solder for some cabling anyways so adding the caps to the order was less than $25 since I was already paying for shipping. I quite enjoy the DIY aspect so the W is a great place to start.

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 09/29/21 1.04.305 !

    AMP12 finally arrived. In stock form it's already a clear winner over 11Mk2. More dynamic and greatly increased space and imaging. Doing the W mod as soon as a set of sacrificial KZ's show up, only 4.4mm cables I have are 2pin and I really don't want to test my DIY skills with the MEST Mk2. If...

    I'd love to participate in the NA tour (Halifax, Canada). I agree to the terms of the tour.

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 09/29/21 1.04.305 !

    Yep, I agree with this completely. The MEST Mk2 is exceptionally smooth, all the way up. Pairs wonderfully with the DX300 (only used AMP11.2 so far).

    Yeah, I'm no stranger to soldering. Done plenty of repairs/mods to things like guitar amps, game controllers, mice, old school PC boards. I'm only doing the caps for the W mod, not going to mess with any of the smaller components.

    Canada here. It's 7c. It gets up to 40c here in the summer and it's humid and gross. I've been in Vegas in 40c and it was pleasant. I don't know about 52c though, that sound gross.

    Nice, I've got a Xiaofan cable that I am quite fond of as well: I have had a chuckle in the past seeing some of their insanely priced cables.

    That's a nice cable. Do you have a link to it?

    I looked at that one. The cable decision for me was among the hardest to make. I looked at a bunch and decided on a custom request from CEMA. I really like fat cables and they have a new 22awg SPC cable so I got that with some different connectors on it (I hate the fake Carbon Fiber pattern that...

    Yeah, I’m at the point where the MEST mk2 and DX300 are giving me everything I need. I’m still in the tweaking mode and waiting on AMP12 and the caps to do the W mod as well as a new cable for the MEST but I think I’d have to spend multiple thousands of dollars to even see a fraction of a...

    I switched back to the TW01 last night after a few weeks with the Final TWS and I think I might prefer the TW01. I really liked the Final but the TW01 is just a hair smoother I think.

    absolute yes on that one. The Anima has piqued my interest greatly off the little I’ve seen of it.
