    Nothing to worry. Mine certainly has the Red glow LED inside as well

    FAW Claire Hybrid is the way to go. Don’t use the higher end Dana Cables on 2.5mm because it can literally bend the plug due to how heavy it is

    Schiit Mjolnir 3 - Impressions Thread

    It's only when you have to fly to Texas as part of your planned US vacation trip now (I hope they'll have their own Schiitr there since they're moving out of California) where you can pick it up and fly it back to your hometown and declare under NZD 1k value so you don't pay import duty...

    Try the Bonneville with the Pentaconn Corier. Shocking how good the synergy can be with this tips

    It's gonna be a pretty noticeable leap to MIB for sure

    More in-your face mids crunch than the Stealth. Bass is thicker in timbre, but equal in amount as the HEK Stealth. Mids are also thicker in texture than HE1K and less even in a well done fashion going from mids to lower treble. Staging is the biggest difference where HE1K is more cathedral-like...

    CanJam Singapore 2024 Impressions Thread (April 6-7, 2024)

    Needs transformer coupled tube amps with the right output impedance to remove the blunt. Otherwise, they sound too damped and lifeless

    Resolution only on its own gets boring real quick I tell ya. Has to be every aspect of sound elevated to uncharted heights

    Have you upgraded to the MIB yet? It's supposed to synergize incredibly well with the MJ3

    If we're strictly speaking Campfire, Stellar Horizon is closest and Ara being second closest agreeing with @OhmsClaw . Then again, I fell in love with maximizing Campfire house sound with Bonneville as a complement to my Susvara instead of making my IEM sound like a Hifiman headphone

    IMHO, Subtonic Storm or Rhapsodio Supreme V3 or Even Elysian Anni 2023 would be your closest bet. As for Campfire IEMs, they tend to bring natural timbre but with unique tuning that's quite far from HE1K Stealth signature.

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Class A has less control but worse performance than a good tube amp. Servo/feedback is where Susvara shines

    A good deep bass test for Susvara :)

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Zhal HM1 if you want some of the blackest background you'll hear out of the Susvara. Very impressive pinpoint imaging based on my short demo with it especially in Class A feedback mode

    You’re forgetting about the DAC and transducers and your preferred tonality at least with driver tube preference

    Yes. For others, SPDIF is still king. For me Unison is leaps and bounds better than any C-media that I don't perceive USB as inferior to SPDIF. There are slight differences, but all inputs make me giggle in awe and get in the zone easily

    HiFiMan Susvara

    An Arya would give you big soundstage and is an excellent starter HP for a properly represented Hifiman house sound (minus the extreme refinements from the Sus)

    IMHO most of these BA timbre issues are almost nonexistent with TOTL IEMs, but some did forgo BA drivers completely and just get pure 3x DD (Trifecta) for their endgame IEM

    That but it’s mostly isolating source electrical noise from the signal so you get the cleanest signal. Not sure about jitter performance with all those extra conversions from Ethernet to light and back to USB

    Agreed! Pretty simple setup where nothing is running other than roon or Spotify connect (midi set to 16/44.1) for Spotify bitperfect. CPU cyles on the Mac is minimally disturbed while I use my PC for non audio tasks. Last but not the least, everything is off the grid and runs only on batteries...

    I’d avoid an adapter directly to Optical rendu and use a quality LAN switch instead for your optical rendu. That way rendu is isolated and the switch will provide fresh, clean signal to the rendu

    Testing a Macbook Pro as Roon Endpoint using USB to Yggdrasil MIB :). Sounds better than Windows 10 I think lol
