    Sony NW-ZX300

    Wow, I found the problem - that new cover art feature kicks in ONLY if the files does not have ANY cover art embedded in them already (even if it is of the kind that zx300 cannot display - for example a progressive jpeg). The embedded covert art always have precedence over the external one and...

    Could you please try the "Bass Shaker" from https://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php and see if you can hear distortion in the sub bass - something that sounds like a rattle? I have AF160 and I can definitely hear it. The THD curve of AF160 is very similar to AF180 - it is closer to...

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    I'm exactly the same! Somehow the ear canal of my right ear goes upwards too soon and I cannot get seal. No such problem on the left.

    The 200GB SanDisk has the greatest ratio Gigabytes/dollar of all cards. (And it is not so much smaller than the 256GB ones)

    Cayin N3 Hi-Res DAP with AKM4490 DAC, apt-X Bluetooth, and Line, USB & Coax Out for $150

    @CayinSupport - There is a little plastic sticker on the leather back of N3 - are we supposed to peel it off? Or doing so will damage the leather?

    Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

    Do SpinFits work well for Noble IEMs? How do they fare in isolation and do they change the sound signature dramatically?

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    My replacement Mojo has a little QR code and a number (in white) between the two headphone jack. The original unit didn't have such a mark nor the many Mojos seen in pictures all over the web. Can somebody that has bought Mojo recently confirm that it now has that mark?

    That's one really thorough (and useful) review!  Are you familiar with ATH IM02? How do they compare?

    New iRiver AK70

    That's exactly what I was saying - AK know their game well. Also, I meant no disrespect to anyone - I heard that stance about what they prefer and why from lots of people and it all makes sense.

    New iRiver AK70

      That's always a possibility.  Do try the AK70 though, I really think it sounds great. I'm enjoying it together with my IT03 regardless of its higher output impedance (~ 2‎Ω). The balanced output is half that though, I just got a balanced cable to try it.

    New iRiver AK70

    I think the whole AK3XX series was marketed towards guys in their 50s or 60s that love their "analogue", velvety sound (besides, they don't hear much above 12-13KHz anyway). Turns out, with the right implementation the VERITA DACs (AKM 4490--) are ideal for that. Now, the AK Jr and AK70 are an...

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    I think I experienced something very similar - it was only in one channel, I don't know if I call it ringing, more like constant "wuuuuuu...". I first thought it was my Vali 2 (the tube going bad most probably). I'll try to restart Modi (I was keeping it up and running for days (weeks?) ) and...

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    Ah, great. I understood that Hifisound sold some units with issues and decided to complain to Fostex, return the batch and wait for a new one. Other distributors might just continue selling what they have.

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    Mine arrives in 3-4 days. I'm wondering if there is a way to spot these units with issues - by the serial number or some visual cues.
