    Hey Everyone,   Package is secured and DAC is currently being warmed up. I'll have a few hours today to write some notes. Tomorrow I'll focus more on comparisons.

    Not exactly, quality of wire and coatings are key. If the wire isn't properly treated before being sleeved (regardless of sleeve)... the wire will degrade. (Oxidation, etc) It also depends on climate in your local area. If moisture is high or the wire is exposed to heavy moisture (ie stage...

    Not unheard of, it is solid core. With enough strain, or even continuous strain can affect the longevity.

      Yup, Paradox Slants are one of the best closed headphone I've heard and definitely a nice compliment.

    Liquid Gold - 2014

    What kind of tubes are you using? S7 changes drastically with different tubes.. one of the few amps that can sound totally different.

    You're using bright headphones, of course the sound is going to be bright.

    I'm one of those that aren't keen on the HD800/GS-X mk2 combo as well. You aren't alone Ricky!

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

        This is part of the reason why I didn't want to use the word, durability because it really is the wrong word to use here. As I said before rhodium has better resistances to degradation such as oxidation, tarnishing, and erosion. Like gold, it is MUCH better than silver, nickel, and...

      Rhodium plating is even more durable than gold plating, which is why it was introduced. Again not for what it does to sound. I agree, rhodium is much more suitable for "high end" cables.

      The purpose of gold-plated plugs aren't meant to improve sound quality, although some may argue that point. Any cable maker or plug manufacturer worth their salt are doing so for the simple reason of degradation prevention (erosion, tarnishing, etc.). As for the wire composition, that is what...

    My opinion is that the Analog does indeed sound better in its native interface, single-ended. With speakers, the difference is pretty substantial, with headphones.. not as apparent. Still, when I used the M9 with my MSB, it was definitely better using RCA even though I feel the balanced input on...

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

      Still deciding but I have a Bricasti M1 on order via a local dealer.

    $999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage

    Tech specs are nice, but trust your ears. Personally, the Sony is the best all around DAP IMO. It wasn't meant to drive anything other than IEMs and portable headphones. It has plenty of power for my 120 impedance CIEMs although a bit more grunt would be nice. With the new FW update, the...

    $999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage

    Responsiveness seems similar to the AK120. Pretty well done UI though.
