    When I finally get my DC ti, may rankings may change. If and when Dio ever is released, that will certainly be in my top 5.

    Does it come with a Pelican case like my Rockwell does so that I can check it into a plane? (i.e. less than $100 pounds with rollers)

    I think I was there when you bought this one. It is gorgeous. If I didn't already have one, I would have bought this already.

    First time I have ever tried a speaker tap for driving headphones. So, I do not know. I do know that I am getting a significant boost in SQ and resolution and I love it.

    Finally got a chance to spend a few hours a/b testing Susvara on the headphone jack vs. the speaker taps. I have heard so much about how much better the speaker taps are in general that I had to test it for myself. I finally did it. Here is the Chain that I tested. It turns out that this is...

    Need to make your way to Singapore again. The key with the DC ti demo unit is to try different tips. The demo unit is a shaved down custom which does not seal well with all tips. That was my problem last year when I heard it when we were together at Jaben SG.

    Sorry that I missed the vote. Here would have been my vote for 3 IEMs that have captured my heart at this very moment in time. 1. Elysian Acoustic Labs Dio. I heard it in Singapore at CanJam for the second time and with the near final version and it is spectacular. I will likely be my...

    Been travelling so much that I haven't had time to post. Just got home very late last night from Orlando with family. Home for 3 days, then going to Tahiti for 2 weeks for a family reunion. This is too much travel for me this year. Going to stay home in June. Anyway, I got this new cable...

    Like Zachi, this headphone from ATH has my heart as a crossover headphone. ATH-AWKG paired with N30LE DAP

    We are going to have a Watercooler contingent at CanJam London. I am making tags for those who want one and to participate. If you are interested, send me a PM and I will add you to the list. Originally did this so that we could more easily identify each other. We have a large group in...

    What a great thread already. There is already such a diversity of posters. I am going to spend a lot of time reading this thread. Can't wait for the first poll once we get a critical mass of posters. Anyone planning on going to CanJam London?

    Awesome. This is exactly what we need for headphones and desktop systems. Can't wait to see how it goes!

    I want it. I just ordered a CIEM which will have this exact logo. For those of you who don't know. This is the logo on the watercooler tags.

    True, the labels are arbitrarily linear. SQ is logarithmic where the greatest value of price to quality is at the knee of the curve probably around $2500.

    It's just a quartile. Budget fi, mid fi, hi fi and summit fi. Take the highest priced IEM, divide it by 4 and create 4 levels of price between $0 and $hi water mark.
