    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Any of the models you list will sound good - but you are asking your question in the Shure thread :relaxed:! The Shures have the big advantage that you can customise the sound through the use of the supplied filters. This fine tuning is really useful as we all perceive sound slightly...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Nice objective viewpoint. Suggest you bin the political claptrap, it does you a disservice. What MQA has to do with brexit, and brexit has to do with portable audio is beyond me.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Logic would suggest 100%. After all, the unit needs to relearn what 100% is, so that it can figure out what 90% is......

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    ...and I think they can order pretty much any parts you require. Shipping was about two weeks for me. If you are going to do this yourself (or get a non Sony engineer to do it), I strongly suggest that they review the maintenance manual. There are a few double sided adhesive strips that you'll...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Totally agree, although the wires do come pre-tinned and the live terminal has a protective plastic sleeve over it which should only be removed immediately prior to soldering. The other danger is shorting the live terminal against the chassis via the soldering iron - definitely a job for a...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Post #26383. The battery in the 1Z and !a are common parts. Mine came labelled as a 1A battery - but they are same part no.

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    When I asked for this a while back, the response wasn't too encouraging. So, I just accepted that it probably wouldn't happen. But then, just downloaded the latest and greatest - and found he had sneaked this pretty big UI upgrade in without so much as a there you go! Few developers listen to...

    A big Cheesy double thumbs up for @Davy Wentzler - Indexing scroll bars everywhere in V5.3.4! Many thanks - that saves a shed load of finger wiping!!!!

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    It matters little with the end result is achieved through placebo or real effect - after all, I cannot switch between "real" and "pseudo" modes when I listen to something. I hear what I perceive something to sound like, and that is it. In all honesty, I cannot tell if what I hear is the same as...

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    These certainly are a chameleon - and quite unlike the R1Z. The R1Z settled quickly, and didn't seem to change their character much as the journey progressed. These? Different every time I listen right now - and I have no idea exactly where they will end up. However, I'm prepared to stick things...

    I've settled in for a LLOOONNNGGGG pink sound burn in via sox on my laptop. I've had the odd listen and I'm not ready to throw the towel in yet as the sound seems to be headed in the right direction - but boy is it slow progress!

    Its a Cobra release. However, all Cobra binaural releases are distributed through Native DSD. Make sure you select Binaural in the Channel selection if you want the Binaural recording.

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    I started off using all one colour to find the bass that worked for me. I then started mixing and matching the dampers to the selected nozzle - and just ended back with pink/pink!

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    If you can find that performance on eclassical, I'd happily tell you what I think. ecalssical lets you stream the whole track (with breaks) and they do put stuff out at a reasonable bitrate. The piano/flute is not a combination I listen to at all, so my comments may not be to the level of detail...

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    It sounded OK - nothing to write home about, but then again, I'm streaming a limited sample over bluetooth - and there is only a piano and a flute! With pinks, the piano sounds a tiny bit off as the notes come down, but that could be the venue in which the recording was made and I've heard...

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    The way I approached it was that the lower section controls bass/mids, and the upper fine tunes the higher frequencies. Whilst this may not be precisely correct, this "seems" to be the case.

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that the presentation of classical music through the R2, certainly with low hours on them, is sometimes sub-par. For example, violins, playing in the higher octaves and as supporting instruments sound distinctly "plastic". This occurs through my CDM DAC/Amp...

    ...although, I have found one classical recording that currently works well - and being binaural, has an absolutely cavernous and very airy sound to it:

    IMR R2 Aten Thread

    Mixed initial impressions from me. For classical music out of the box, I cannot get a good sound at all - no matter the tip/filter combination. The top end is either too shrill or too shrouded - no middle ground to be had that I can find. Particularly, violins sound very shrill or very...

    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    Its certainly a keeper as far as I am concerned - I know I'm late to the party - but that's the story of my life! I did have a PHA3 to connect to my PC, a spot which is now occupied by the CDM. It's been a while, but I don't remember the Sony grabbing my attention in the way the CDM has. I...
