    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I have yet to try Naim but have read many good things. I will most likely be waiting out for the Mscaler compatible amp (DX) for my speakers. I am always conflicted with gear because I find room correction useful for the lower mids and lows, but only a few components provide that feature. Maybe...

    The new R series is looking great! I am very curious to know your findings. I have kef reference 1s that will be with PS audio m700s, but have yet to listen. Kefs seem pretty insensitive, but if you can get your TT2 to power your R7s then the TT2 & Mscaler might be my own way to go. Keep me...

    I almost pulled the trigger on the a18t. I had the a12 in the past, so going for the a18t would have required no extra ear mold work! Oddly enough the KSE1200 are more comfortable than my customs. I sound like I am either a paid marketer or oddly obsessed with the kse, but if something comes...

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    Yes, that is the downside that I wish I could change. I listen to music 90% of the time at work via IEMS. Headphones generally would be preferred but I try to be as discrete as possible among my coworkers, so big headphones just don't work. If the company was my own or I was in isolation I...

    Ha yes, classical but mostly jazz. I love both but listen to the same genres as you. I am a product of the late 1990s and early 2000s music. I could go from cradle of filth, to jazz, to armim van beauren

    Most audiophile sites name many obscure musicians, albums, etc. I wonder how many people are like me in that I listen to grunge, electro, nu metal, etc. I laugh at myself sometimes when realizing the type of music I am playing through 10k worth of equipment i.e. just listened to an old three six...

    I agree with Doody that the tech is awesome but the user interface and user manual are pretty difficult.

    Ha, I was a bit dubious at first and considered a possible prank, but my intuition told me that humor should never exist within the hi-fi community! Unplugging sounds easiest to me!

    Rob, I've gone through many products and have always had a bug to try different ones till I came upon Chord, so thanks for your work. For the life of me I still can't figure out how to turn off the Mscaler. I take it to work during the week and home for the weekend, so I would like to safely...

    Thanks Rob! The music sure sounds like it is 768, but my confidence wanes due to a bit color blindness.

    Could someone tell me if this color is 768? The pic doesn't depict the LEDs very well but I see a blue and pink LED being lit. If I am not at 768, then how should i get there? Thanks

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    I tried the dragonfly red with the lg v20 and was dissapointed. The red has much less power and i think that affects the ability to power the frequency spectrum of my 64 audio a12s. I also tried the red with the focal elear and was let down, of course due to the power. The v20 really has some...

    Focal Elear and Utopia Review / Preview With Measurements - Head-Fi TV

    I bet the margins are high, but the headphones are actually made by two people, and the utopia driver is a very dangerous substance to handle, so the cost is probably higher than most would think, but I bet healthy margins exist, especially considering that the tech took "4 years to make". Can't...

    Focal Elear and Utopia Review / Preview With Measurements - Head-Fi TV

    I am new enough not to tell the difference right now but I would like the extra detail in the upper mids, so if the utopia pads help then I'd like to do so because I would probably notice at that point

    Any progress on this? I have the elear and enjoy it but wonder if the mids are a little recessed--as reviews have stated.

    1964 Ears/ 64 Audio | ADEL A10/ U10/ A12/ U12 - New Flagship Discussion / Impressions Thread

    Received my a12s about a week ago. I have immediately been trying them on the WA8 and was turned off at first until i went to 2 tubes, much better! My a3s on 3 tube were very good, almost the same as the a12s.  Aside from the WA8 i've found the a12s are much better on my lg v20 than the a3s.  ...
