    HiBy RS8 flagship Darwin R2R Android DAP -- Class A -- news and impressions thread

    Yeah but given the price they will not exactly sell hundreds per day :)
  2. Cayin N8ii TOTL DAP + Dock in beautiful condition

    For sale due to switch to desktop amplification Cayin N8ii TOTL dap in perfect condition. Comes with box and all accessories. I checked Hifishark and decided to offer the lowest price in the EU zone. Price therefore is fixed. Offering such a low price because I need the funds for a new...

    T+A Solitaire T Wireless Headphone

    LOL as much as I would have liked to go and listen to them / pick them up, family things came in between. It simply was a bit too busy this weekend...

    Mark Levinson № 5909 headphone

    Great find.. I personally find the difference to be slightly smaller than 'in a different universe' 😉 but would nonetheless agree in terms of preferring the Levinsons to the Bathys... But to each his own right? For now I have no intention of parting with the Levs.. (But with the T&A Solitaire T...

    Mark Levinson № 5909 headphone

    In Windows 11 the maximum resolution is immediately (& properly) identified ... You should be fine there.

    Mark Levinson № 5909 headphone

    Will check this afternoon how to do this for windows... But on your Galaxy S22U you should be getting 24/96. That's the result when putting a query to the internal DAC over the USB cable. The UAPP screenshot proves it. There you see a 24/192 file being played at the 5909's maximum resolution...

    Focal Bathys Hi-Fi Bluetooth & ANC Headphones: Early Impressions

    It's interesting to see how the Focal Bathys, while positioned right at the top of the wireless audiophile segment, are the only ones constantly being compared with wired competitors. Of course this is logical because Focal is one of the rare manufacturers that also has a comprehensive line of...

    Naim Audio Uniti Atom Headphone Edition

    I remember reading somewhere (can't remember where) that someone concluded that the Atom HE sounded better over Wi-Fi than over ethernet... Wonder what the consensus is on that.... 😊

    Kindle FireHD 8 - an unconventional source?

    A little additional note on LDAC. I just installed AmrG Dev's Bluetooth Codec Changer to check on the way that LDAC is being used on the Fire HD series of tablets. I found that the Fire HD 10 Plus *sometimes* has difficulties maintaining a bandwith of 990kbps (highest quality LDAC bandwith)...

    Kindle FireHD 8 - an unconventional source?

    And an update from my end .. The Fire HD 10 Plus has been stellar so far. Contrary to what the OP did, I installed Google Play Services and from there I installed USB Audio Player Pro ... With the Anker Wireless Dock handling charging and UAPP handling streaming BitPerfect into my Questyle CMA...

    T+A Solitaire T Wireless Headphone

    The Hifiman approach is interesting in that respect.. Take for instance the HE-R9 combination with the Bluemini R2R add-on on adapter... perhaps a direction that Focal also could take?

    It appears that the Solitaire T is almost ready to ship. My delivery date was updated today and set to 14 November.

    Mark Levinson № 5909 headphone

    Samsung defaults to LDAC best effort, but that's an adaptive Bitrate. So like with AptX adaptive, it will try to use the best possible bandwidth ... I think most smartphones will manage keeping that at 990kbps. Unless you want to be 100% certain... Then you could enforce it in the developers...

    HiBy RS8 flagship Darwin R2R Android DAP -- Class A -- news and impressions thread

    Just to put it into perspective.. This seems to be a Musicteck initiative, not a Hiby one. Which will predominantly be aimed at drawing additional customers to Musicteck, not necessarily to Hiby :-)

    As long as everything fits within the limit of 10Kg hand luggage, I see no issue :xf_cool: .. Just a matter of leaving something else at home...

    Naim Audio Uniti Atom Headphone Edition

    Hi Daniel, if not too much trouble, would you also be able to add the cable that you used? (Stock vs after market and material 😇)

    Naim Audio Uniti Atom Headphone Edition

    Anyone wants to chime in with their top-5 over-ear pairings with the Naim Uniti Atom HE? (And if not too much trouble also the used cable?) 😁😎

    T+A Solitaire T Wireless Headphone

    I was given two impressions of the T, dating back to july (in German) ... Which makes me think this somehow must have been a pre-production unit. But neither opinion appears to be very well developed, especially not the second one ...

    HiBy RS8 flagship Darwin R2R Android DAP -- Class A -- news and impressions thread

    I'm not.. In 2022 so far I purchased a Shanling M9, a Questyle CMA Fifteen, a Mark Levinson ML 5909, the Cayin N8ii and a Naim Atom Headphone Edition... No more budget... Something needs to go first 😁😂

    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    Just out of curiosity.. What Bluetooth source(s) did you use? iPhone? Android? What make/model?

    Focal Bathys Hi-Fi Bluetooth & ANC Headphones: Early Impressions

    I ended up returning the Bathys and stick with the 5909... As much as I love the Bathys' form and execution, as well as its sound profile and quality, the reasons for me were the following: 1: My ears.. Especially my left ear touches the speaker inside the Bathys which, after a while, becomes...
