    Xduoo Amplifiers

    I don't have SMSL SU-8 anymore. I don't know if there are any Enhancements under Sound Properties, and I have never needed any. It doesn't need any drivers but if you wish you can download an XMOS driver from here http://www.smsl-audio.com/download.asp?p=1. I feeded TA-20 via ASIO in foobar2000...

    Yes you can run RCA in from the DAC and listen to the balanced out. This is what I used to do before buying my SMSL SU-8. Fully balanced setup however sounds better to me, especially the soundstage.

    I'd like to thank you for your tube rolling article for TA-20. I bought the Amperex pair after reading it. The Amperex achieved the sound I crave - wide 3D soundstage with warmth and bass.

    I need an advice please. My xDuoo's TA-20 red protect light started flashing today. No sound. Turned the amp on/off couple of times, in vain. Changed the tubes Lt-Rt and it's working fine again. Background: those are new Amperex tubes, got them yesterday. Played back 12-14 hours non-stop to burn...

    Loxjie P20 Discussion- Starved for information on this thing!

    Yes, you can. That was my setup. Results in wider soundstage.

    FiiO AM3D-FiiO Releases the THX AAA Powered Headphone Amplifier Module AM3D

    Yes, I use WASAPI, but the Windows 10 driver is broken and if I play DSD file the Q5s front light stays blue. If I play it on my phone, the light turns green, as it should be:

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    It's nice that you forgive P1 for not having wide soundstage because P1 are IEMs and IEMs don't have any soundstage.

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    There is no backcharge with FiiO ML06 cable. Also I disabled USB charge in FiiO app. Bass is everyone's personal preference. I tried bass boost on my FiiO Q5s and in my view it muddles the bass and affects negatively the pristine sound of P1. Anyway if I want fat bass I just listen to my 1060c.

    Monolith M1060C Closed Back Planar Headphones impressions

    I dropped my 1060c yesterday and they hit the floor with the left 2.5mm jack. It's housing was impacted up to the grill - where the blue arrow is. I retracted it as much as I dared but it's still a little indented - the green arrow. The headphones are working just fine but I'm afraid to take the...

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    It would be nice to see some basic headphone science videos here. I suppose most people will listen to P1 on SE which is unfortunate because P1 really shine on balanced output. It would be interesting to see your comparison.

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    I listened to the stock 3.5mm cable vs 4.4mm balanced. Personal impressions only so take it with a grain of salt. Stock 3.5mm impressions: - Requires more power. On FiiO Q5s 1h vs 12h for balanced. Q5s 100% volume is at 3h. No gain boost applied. No bass boost also. - Overall sound - lifeless. -...

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    An attempt to create resonance chamber. Sound became warm and bassy, lost crispiness and air. Didn't like it but if you want to try more bass why not.

    FiiO Q5s -Flagship Bluetooth DAC & AMP, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, Amplifier Module AM3E with 2.5/3.5/4.4mm Output, USB/Bluetooth/SPDIF/Line Input

    I just tried the bass boost on my P1. The bass becomes bloated and mushy. The overall sound deteriorates. Not subtle change.

    No, I didn't. I will later on. For now I enjoy them so much that I don't want to change anything.

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    Tipwise, symbio w seemed to give me 2x bass due to better seal but they are firm and a bit uncomfortable after a little bit. Spinfit much more comfortable but bass lacking. I cut some soft foam earplugs and filled the spinfits to make my own frankenhybrid, which worked amazingly well, great...

    Tin Hifi P1 impressions

    I got my Tin P1 today and I find the sound so different from the reviews here that I wonder if I got another revision of the P1. Especially with the bass, which by the general opinion here is lacking in sub-bass. That's not what I hear. My setup: Transport: Neutron MP on Android, USB output with...

    FiiO Q5s -Flagship Bluetooth DAC & AMP, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, Amplifier Module AM3E with 2.5/3.5/4.4mm Output, USB/Bluetooth/SPDIF/Line Input

    My driver is version 4.47.0. It is the latest. However your device revision is different - v.0.52 vs my v.0.32. Windows settings don't affect the sound probably because the FiiO's ASIO takes over. I might change the balance in FiiO app eventually although this isn't ideal to me.

    FiiO Q5s -Flagship Bluetooth DAC & AMP, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, Amplifier Module AM3E with 2.5/3.5/4.4mm Output, USB/Bluetooth/SPDIF/Line Input

    I don't need to win, I just want to buy Q5s and AM3D, but it's not avalable in UK. FiiO created enough hype already, why don't release them now?
