    FS: Chord Mojo

    I’m seeing a lot of links to this press release, but nowhere is it on sale for 25% off in the USA that I’ve found. Good indication the latest addition is right around the corner...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Good to know and see! I own quite a few DSD/HDTracks albums - too many in fact, which is why for my portable rig I want to be truly portable and use Tidal exclusively for MQA, save a few of my favorites in the on-board memory

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    I do know what you mean and thank you for the extra info :) Have you used the EQ on the DX220? How’s it compare to the Cayin?

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Very helpful, thank you for that - For my case particularly I’m looking for a DAP for Tidal MQA/Offline and a selection of my collection to use on the onboard memory+SD that has a good EQ. I’m wondering if the DX220 with tube amp may balance the reference sound signature with a warmer more...

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    I wish that was a feasible option for me - I’m not sure where I could auction these, more-so i’m not sure of a retailer who would allow me to purchase both, break them in and then return on. Any suggestions? :)

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Any disadvantages to this? I’m under the impression it will still unpack, but possibly not to 192/24 - is that correct? My apologies I didn’t see your first review on this, but I’ll go watch now :)

    Cayin N6ii, Unlimited Possibilities: a fully modularized smart DAP

    Always a fan of your reviews - I’m new to portable audio and I’m looking for an all-in-one solution for Tidal streaming, offline MQA, passthrough DAC capability and on-board EQ. Compared to the AK offerings, how does Cayin stack up? Is this an all-in-one portable solution?

    Portable Headphone Amp Help: McIntosh MHA50, FiiO Q5S, etc.

    I’m in the same situation, weighing the McIntosh MHA50 vs other brands I am unfamiliar with (FiiO, iFi, etc...) I’m looking to drive my RHA CL2 Planar IEMs with a solid dac amp and possibly MQA. What did you end up going with?

    McIntosh MHA50 Portable Decoding Amplifier

    Well, I had a brief demo with the MHA50 at my local Mac dealer - Using my iPhone in “iOS” mode and with the RHA CL2 Planar IEMs I got in a few tracks. The unit sounds wonderful, however hard to tell using my iPhone and source tracks how well the dac performed. The body was slightly larger than I...

    Introducing CL2 Planar (Impressions Thread)

    Not that it matters really but I believe I have over 60,000 albums in my collection - which is my point, it’s too much to condense in to Micro SD cards and manage with a portable device. Tidal for me solves the issue of physical storage and mobility, and to my ears MQA is not a compromise to the...

    McIntosh MHA50 Portable Decoding Amplifier

    Can’t believe the lack of enthusiasm for the MHA50 - Does anyone own one? I plan on demo’ing one tomorrow if it’s still available at my local McIntosh dealer. Did the delays kill the hype? I haven’t even seen a new press run for it after it’s officially been released

    Introducing CL2 Planar (Impressions Thread)

    I'm good on carrying around 100 Micro SD cards, good suggestion though SD cards are definitely the way of the future.

    It sounds better than lugging around hard disks full of FLAC files that's for sure

    Introducing CL2 Planar (Impressions Thread)

    MQA sounds pretty good to me. Is there something that sounds better?

    Introducing CL2 Planar (Impressions Thread)

    I was a moderator and content contributor to a major tracker back a few years - Very tired of storing terabytes of music and managing files. I like tidal HiFi

    Introducing CL2 Planar (Impressions Thread)

    Would love to hear your mojo+CL2 impressions... The WM1A would be perfect for me if I could use Tidal, I wish Sony would get on board - They make beautiful hardware.
