    Vibro Labs is going on sabbatical

    Maybe just working on the headphones then?, but still hold out hope he will give the IEM side of it a shot again. Thing is the IEM arena is competitive let alone the Chinese flooding the lower end with punching above their weight for the money IEMS which makes it very hard to operate extremely...

    Vibro Labs is going on sabbatical

    Luke coming back to do earphones, surely not? I thought he would be too busy mining now days to do any IEM's... I'm still loving my Mayas and regretted not getting them turned into custom fit by him and then missed out on the "earphone" model which lasted five minutes before he pulled out of...

    Rupert Neve Designs Announces The RNHP: Precision Headphone Amplifier

    It's great knowing peace of mind with the Amazon returns policy... personally from experience I don't think you will regret getting the RNHP which I think is a very underrated amp. Always can buy led black out cover dot tape or half transparent led cover tape for those LEDS if they do...

    Lark Studio ::OFFICIAL NEW THREAD:: Reviews, Impressions, Discussion

    Have to say I am missing the LSX sound already with it's organic detailed nature and the easy fit for a universal. One amp I would loved to of heard these with would of been the Rupert Neve's RNHP amp as from experience it should be a killer pairing but if anyone does if they can update here...

    Thank you for that info QBelfry, had just been looking on Amazon to see what Prime options there was here in UK but all there was is two Chinese sounding straight adaptors, one by Hzjundasi with no reviews at all and a Geekria which has had one poor review regarding been one channel down so...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Cheers guys, much appreciated, I thought it was but just wanted to make sure after learning about the 3.5se to 4.4 bal restriction as I will now get my skates on and order an adaptor so I can listen to my Meze premium cable which they terminate in 2,5 bal. Is there one in particular that's...

    Just going back to the SE into 4.4 conversation briefly I take it then a 2.5 female balanced to 4.4 male adaptor would be safe to use on the 1A?

    I love the QPR1 sound a lot also (we probably have similar signatures tastes then) although not so keen on the ergonomics of the QPR1 to operating the Sony touchscreen even though a lot better than their first gen issues they had a few years ago with their click wheel.

    Er, only one way to find out, please see above! I agree totally with Quadfather here Naivesound as it was quite scary how much it did change in that period upto 400-500 hour mark. Again only one way to find out is to give it that chance to know for sure and go down that road mileage wise then...

    I was afraid I was reading it correctly but wanted to be in denial! Thanks for confirming that query, I'd rather play safe than find out a few months down the line it starts to play up because I a have burnt out the buffers etc inside. Anyone want to buy a 3.5se to 4.4 male adaptor...

    Vibro Labs is going on sabbatical

    No, his IEMS never did get the recognition they deserved and glad I'm not the only one found they sound better than their price point but if you ever do change your mind you know where I am if you do decide to sell the "Earphone"! :joy::laughing:

    Vibro Labs is going on sabbatical

    Indeed, Tough times with the Chinese pushing out IEMS costing £15-30 that can sound good as some of the £150-300 range iems making it harder for one man bands with golden ears like Luke. With his Maya I felt it was the same thing but his £500 iem sounded more like some of the £1k+ iems out...

    I had the Japan ZX1 until it died from one of it's most common issues it had with rebooting loop fault which then forced my hand to buy a new DAP and the WM1A happened to be on an Amazon offer at £750 a year ago now and have to say I have not regretted it at all... Nice as the ZX1 was with it's...

    I listend to new 2.0 FW for hour or so last night and only just started back up but would say there is a change and to me first apparent thing was mid bass was more noticeable and prominant than before and overall low range bass tucked in a bit tighter with slightly better control all round of...

    I heard their range at a show recently, can't remember which one was my fav out of the different types they done but know it was one of the top two they did in the range which sounded a bit more fun shall we say and the other one was more neutral/ flat. Went well with my 1A when I tried them...

    Cheers Turrican2:beerchug: I am about to update my 1A now so is a relief the BT remote works as from a logistical use pov this is pivitol for me to use with the Walkman and should be standardized across all their Walkmans no matter which territory it is. It really was the icing on the cake...

    Old Deathlands, thats another one I used to read! Not really an audiobook listener as such yet but don't get the time to read like I used to so wanted to give audiobooks a try so must be a different and interesting to listen to the books by a narrator on the Walkman ; ) Is there a way to keep...
