    ONIX Alpha XI1 - Smallest & Most Affordable ONIX DAC - High-Power Portable USB DAC/AMP

    No weird noises or popping sounds here, this doesn't sound good.

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    Tidal \ USB Player Pro > Note 20 Ultra > ONIX Alpha XI1 > D9200 Continuing my very extensive session with the Alpha XI1. D9200 is another great pairing, if not the best so far. Stunning detail and suprising three dimensionality despite of the latter not really being a strength of the D9200 with...

    Tidal \ USB Player Pro > Note 20 Ultra > ONIX Alpha XI1 (NOS Filter) > Moondrop S8 I'm admittedly pretty sure that i've already posted the album here once, but this is more about the dongle. And anyways, "Night Reign" is really good, go listen to it if you haven't already and Jazz, Folk and a...

    ONIX Alpha XI1 - Smallest & Most Affordable ONIX DAC - High-Power Portable USB DAC/AMP

    Got mine from Hifigo and first impressions are very positive. I'm just listening to "Painless" from Nilüfer Yanya, an album i love and know very well and this sounds not at all like it's just an emergency solution. Layering and especialy detail immediately stand out. I've read somewhere in this...

    Adrienne Lenker - Bright Future (2024) What a gem of an album.

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    Tidal > E70V > A90D > Moondrop S8 Really shouldn't neglect the S8 so much, they still offer a finely balanced and highly detailed sound. Not the most "obviously fun" IEM, but rather honest to a fault. Good recordings are in exchange allowed to shine. Johnny Blue Skies - Passage Du Desir

    CanJam London 2024 (July 20-21, 2024)

    Afaik Quick left DCS years ago. But let's not turn this into a witch hunt anyways, the important thing is to make clear to DCS and other companies that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and bad for business.

    What is the successor (or a similar sound signature) of the Campfire Audio Cascade?

    If IEMs are an option, the FATtreq Scarlet Mini should definitely be taken into consideration...

    THE WATERCOOLER HEADPHONE EDITION – Headphones, Amps, DACs, and desktop/home audio related – a freewheeling discussion of gear, impressions, music, and musings.

    Meh, a VP can be pretty much anything from glorified staffer to leading the company for all intents and purposes, but i'm not privy to DCS's formal and/or informal corporate structure, so you might be right. Anyways, extremely bad look from DCS and a very obvious stupid idea.

    THE WATERCOOLER HEADPHONE EDITION – Headphones, Amps, DACs, and desktop/home audio related – a freewheeling discussion of gear, impressions, music, and musings.

    That VP guy seems to be on a very ill advised personal crusade and DCS isn't better in supporting it.

    Tidal connect > WiiM Pro Plus (Coaxial) > E70V > A90D > Hifiman Edition XS Kind of funny, after some intial enthusiasm i couldn't really get into the Edition XS, some treble spicyness and timbre problems kept me from enjoying them so they were mostly lying around gathering dust. But when i...

    Meze Audio ALBA - A Light in The Shape of Sound

    So was there a recall or not? My dealer certainly made it seem like that was the reason he couldn't deliver despite of their website stating something else when i ordered. Anyways, seems like a giant f up for Meze, they'll probably lose a lot of sales as the Alba won't nearly be as hot anymore...

    Holo Audio Cyan 2 DAC

    Not ideal, indeed. I'll think about this a bit more before i do anything, especially since i'm in principle quite happy with my chain right now, all my headphones seem to have gotten an upgrade with the addition of the WiiM (or probably rather the substraction of my PC...). But it always could...

    Holo Audio Cyan 2 DAC

    Yes, less than optimal either way, especially since going to a dedicated streamer, even one as cheap as the WiiM, resulted in very audible improvement. Kind of unfortunate that coaxial and optical inputs on the Cyan 2 apparently aren't up to par with USB.

    Holo Audio Cyan 2 DAC

    So, having been tempted to try R2R for some time now i'm very much attracted by the Cyan 2. However, i do already have a Burson Composer 3 Reference and a Topping E70 Velvet on hand. Realistically, with my primary amps being an A90 D and the amp of the C3R, can i expect a palable improvment or...

    For those of us with multiple headphones, which ones are you listening with now?

    Tidal/Roon > E70V > A90D > Quad ERA-1 The ERA-1 is the headphone i'll never sell, they always sound great but also reward experimentation a lot. With the SP200 they sound almost ethereal while with the A90D there's lot more punch, bigger soundstage and more precise imaging. Would love to try...

    Ah, a fellow Quad ERA-1 enjoyer. Excellent choice, would derserve to be a lot more popular.

    Meze Audio ALBA - A Light in The Shape of Sound

    Got the unfortunate message that the delivery will be delayed until a new fixed batch is available around mid July, too. Welp, notging to do except to wait, i'm still optimistic that they'll be worth it and that the Alba are shaping up to be an excellent choice for a "daily rocker".
