    Of course, this a track I only use to test sibilance: https://tidal.com/browse/track/255834909?u I listen specifically from 0:13 to 0:17. There are a lot of harsh "s" consonant sounds in this range. If you're not hearing any sibilance, Oslo's probably a great cable pairing. It was one of my...

    As promised, I was able to do some Astral Acoustics and Beat Audio cable-rolling on Annihilator 23 and 320MAX (and UM tips). Reference Silver: Well-extended treble with slightly added treble weight. Much needed bass weight added as well. Doesn't change the tonal balance of the Annihilator. A...

    Elysian Annihilator 2023

    I use a Khanyayo/Dr. Juggles gold-plated silver cable for my Anni into 320MAX. I was annoyed with the plug not fitting 320MAX, but I actually don’t like the stock cable’s sound with Anni either so I swapped it out.

    Elysian Annihilator 2023

    I've tried this too. It does work without interference once you get it sitting like this, but it's prone to popping out if you're not completely still.

    Regarding the timing of these reviews, I believe there’s usually an embargo/NDA on sharing reviews until the official release date of the iem, in exchange for the manufacturer providing an early sample to the reviewer. Hence why they all seemed to pop up at the same time.

    Nightjar Singularity

    Yes, Elise and Nightjar/Chang have great customer service. Unfortunate situation, but I'm sure you'll get sorted.

    Just repurchased a set of 7th Acoustics Supernovas after selling my first pair about a year ago. Quite happy with the faceplates 🥰

    Oh mine’s like that too, but coming from 320MAX I like it since MAX’s knob takes some effort to turn.

    Yes, they were all done on my CMA18. I have the cables until maybe tomorrow or Friday latest. If time allows, I’ll try to re-demo them on my 320MAX and maybe Annihilator this time.

    Alter Ego x Astral Acoustics Cable Shoot-out Hey everyone, it's been an eventful past two weeks between audio arrivals, tour units, and loans. My favorite recent acquisition has been the Melodic Artification Alter Ego which I took a liking to during a MusicTeck demo about a month ago now...

    Try Sup V3 with instrumentals or acoustic music. It’s where it really shines imo.

    Had a nice listening session with the DX180 this morning. It's quite impressive how close it gets to my main DAP, the 320MAX Ti. While it lacks the MAX's sheer dynamics, transient definition, and overall resolution, DX180 clearly has the MAX's DNA, and achieves 85-90% of the sound at a fraction...

    I love leather cases but in this case, I like the see-through stock case because I want to see the blue color of my DX180.

    Ohhh kinda like Ultimate mode on 320MAX. Thanks! To run all four chips I’m assuming the FIR option needs to be set to “x2”?
