    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    Yes, the wifi was off, which in a real-world application isn't feasible. I did not have another pair of BT headphones that support LDAC to test with, so I returned the M6 to Amazon for a refund. Sorry.

    [FiiO M6] Portable High-Resolution Lossless Music Player,Embracing A Wireless Future

    Thanks for the info, but I'm not convinced that it's 2.4 GHz interference. There's something wrong here. I did some more testing, trying out your suggestions, and it made no difference at all. I still get MAJOR audio stuttering when trying to use any LDAC mode on the M6 other than Connection...

    Apple AirPods Pro And NEW AirPods Pro 2nd Gen (from 23 Sep 2022) - Impressions

    I use my AP almost daily and have never had an issue with ANC randomly deactivating.

    Yes, I understand what microphonics is and what causes it, hence my comment that the APP doesn't have a microphonics issue. They also have almost no bone conduction problem. I can't decide if that's because they don't seal completely, if it's mostly eliminated by the ANC, or a little of both...

    Not mention the complete elimination of microphonics.

    I guess you could finagle it somehow.

    I swapped a few emails with Comply support, and while they gave me no firm info, it seems that they'll eventually be offering tips for these.

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    Perhaps "deceptive" was the wrong word to use, but Monoprice is leaning heavily on that THX brand recognition to sell the product. I guess it's like the old "THX approved" DVDs we used to buy. At the end of the day, that THX "certification" didn't amount to a hill of beans. It was more of a...

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    My return is partially due to Amir's findings, even though I'm fully aware he evaluated a unit that shipped out with beta firmware installed. While I generally liked the unit's functionality, I was concerned with reliability, resale value, and quality control. The other thing that bothered me is...

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    Interesting. I went through Monoprice's RMA process to return my unit on 11/26, and it was taken care of within 24 hours. I've already boxed it up and shipped it back to them.

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    That's a pretty sweet looking little tube amp. I may just have to check it out too! As for keeping both, I'm afraid that my budget-conscious self can't swing it. I'd have to be happy with one or the other.

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    That's been my experience with the MCTH as well, although the right tube will give it some warmth, especially noticeable with the Clears. While I'd welcome all of the functionality in the Monolith I'm a little concerned about losing the flexibility of tube rolling. Decisions, decisions. I've had...

    Awesome. I see you also own the CTH. Any thoughts on how the Monolith compares to the Massdrop Cavalli?

    Monoprice Monolith Desktop THX Amp/DAC (#24459) - Impressions Thread

    Anyone using this with the Focal Clear? I'd be especially interested in impressions of this combo while using the Monolith's internal DAC.

    Best Amp / Dac combo for Focal Clear's

    I currently have a Magni 3 and a Vali 2, and I think the CTH is a better match for the Clears than both. I'd rate them as follows: CTH > Magni 3 > Vali 2 The differences are distinct but subtle. I think the CTH combines the best of both of the Schiit amps. It has punch and dynamics like the...

    Best Amp / Dac combo for Focal Clear's

    Yes indeedy, I love the Clears! They're my first pair of $1000+ cans and the best headphones I've ever owned. I'm happy for the foreseeable future.
