    Nightjar Singularity

    Is there any connection between Nightjar and Radius? The gold donut reminds me of my old Radius DDM IEM's. I loved those things lol - terrible build quality though.

    FiiO M23, AK4191EQ+AK4499EX, THX AAA-78+, Dual Type-C Ports, Dual-Core Fast Charging, 1000mW+1000mW @32Ω

    Cheers, thanks. I think I'll stick with my M11+ then. Desktop mode would be cool, but since it's mainly a portable device for me, the higher output on-the-go of the M11+ is more valuable to me. And as far as the THX amp discussion, I do think it makes a difference. Or at least, it sounds good...

    FiiO M23, AK4191EQ+AK4499EX, THX AAA-78+, Dual Type-C Ports, Dual-Core Fast Charging, 1000mW+1000mW @32Ω

    Considering swapping my M11+ ESS for this new guy. I've never owned a DAC with AKM chip. Does anyone know what the output power is (balanced out) when not in desktop mode? All the specs I can find only apply to desktop mode 1.0W @ 32 Ohm.

    Budget IEMs with removable / detachable nozzles?

    Moondrop Kato has this feature. But it's a little more than one hunnid.

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM ******NEW Firmware 2.00 Android 11******

    Apologies if this has been asked already...I have an iBasso DX300 on the way, and I have a question about EQ and streaming. I'm assuming that even if the device does not have play store, since it's Android you can sideload Tidal/Spotify/Qobuz/etc. Now I know that the Mango player has a nice...

    Walkman Owners: What are your stock player settings?

    Sorry for the noob question, but I recently switched from Neutron to the stock player on my Walkman F series, and I am wondering about the sound settings.    Surround sound: I have this off. It seems to me much more like (bad) EQ presets than any kind of artificial 5.1 or 7.1, which would also...

    Westone STAR(TM) silicon tips and TRUE-FIT(TM) foam tips available

    Just popping in to say that the star tips work great for me. They offer the convenience and comfort of the older grey silicon tips, but the sound quality of modded tri-flange tips. Well done, Westone. Now my W3's are reaching their potential!

    Cheap IEM's never sound good

    Of course any generalization can be criticized for being overly simple, but my personal experiences tend to agree with yours. Since moving into ~$150+ IEM's, most cheaper IEM's now sound unacceptable to me. Even "bang-for-the-buck" budget kings that are well-reviewed on head-fi I have ended up...

    New Audiolab DAC

    Quote:     I am also using the M-DAC as an all-in-one. However, my hardest to drive headphones are only Denon D5000's. I think the M-DAC amp is underrated. Many people look to the amp to color the sound slightly, and the M-DAC as a unit is designed to sound transparent, so those people...

    controlling studio monitor volume

    The functionality you are looking for is often found in units that are called "pre-amps." Many DAC/Amp combos and receivers have this functionality built-in, but the Aune T1 you chose does not.   Your options are:   1. Stick with the Aune, and add a separate pre-amp. I don't know if...

    Quote:   The Genelec's are great. I am not really an expert by any means; I bought them pretty impulsively after a quick audition. But compared to my old M-Audio speakers, the Genny's are more "polite," image better, and sound more dynamic over the frequency range. The M-Audio bx5a's had...

    Tanglefree cords, no microphonics IEMs

    The Westone epic cables on their IEM's are the best I have come across for non-tangle and non-microphonic. They only downside is: their IEM's isolate so much that bone conduction can be a problem if you walk around with them in. I use my Westone 3's when shopping for shoes to see how good a pair...

    New Audiolab DAC

    Is Sabre ES9018 the best DAC chip right now?

    Harman Kardon Soundsticks III or Logitech Z623?

    M-Audio AV40's or Audioengine D2's will be better than both of those options in that price range. Since getting into powered monitors, I have vowed never to go back to computer, "multimedia" speakers.     If you are thinking "but seekadds, your suggestions don't come with a sub," consider...

    Audio Technica ATH- ES 10 Impressions Thread

    Quote:   I'm interested in this as well. I think the ESW11ltd pads are larger than the ESW9 pads, but I could be wrong.    I also have the following questions:   1. Where can one acquire ESW11ltd replacement pads?  2. How, and to what degree, do they change the sound/isolation?
