    LP6Ti more details to follow

    This impression wrote itself: I'm a nut, I've been crazy for over at least half a decade. If I was to put in a position to pick anything VS an audio related product, I'll pick the latter. This is me and I make no apology to anyone, (sorry my other half if you are reading this, sorry but no...

    HIFIMAN Releases New Flagship DAP "R2R2000"

    I don't really want a dap anymore, for me the future is a HUGO 2 size DAC/Amp that can pair with my tablet. No DAP can replace the functionality of my tablet.

    DUNU LUNA - Impressions and Discussion

    Dunu Luna is not source agnostic, it is very source dependent: Today I had a chance to pair it with LP6 Gold. I had amazing success with LPG, but LP6 Gold takes it to a new level. Before this, I never understood why certain users praised it for its vocal, now I get it, and hear it. Its amazing!

    HM1000 all things considered.

    HIFIMAN Releases New Flagship DAP "R2R2000"

    HM1000 has a better DAC output, you really need an amp to enjoy it. The R2R2K family as a package offered great dynamic sound without the need of an amp. Truly portable, for me easy one handed operation. I miss mine so much.

    HIFIMAN Releases New Flagship DAP "R2R2000"

    With the R2R2K family, if you were lucky enough to find a good one, it certainly was a keeper. HM1000 sounds different.

    Introducing Shanling M30 - Modular Desktop Hi-Fi Streaming Player

    I have a huge request, is there anyway you can disclose the future moduls that Shanling has in mind for M30? Is there a possibility that you guys might develop your own R2R ladder DAC for M30? That would be a dream come true for me. Maybe a modfied Soekris DAC section or for DSD fan, DSC-1 :)

    Introducing Shanling M30 - Modular Desktop Hi-Fi Streaming Player

    I was this close to buying the M30, but decided not to for 3 main reason 1) keeping my other half happy, and 2) it was too large for me, and I'm really into portable, 3) I was not sure what future modules would come out, and that uncertainty eventually made me take a step back. I like to thank...

    Hifiman HM1000: Worlds first Quad PCM 1704 DAP

    I highly recommend updating music using OTG cable, not BT. It is so much faster. Bluetooth takes so long. Have to tested the BT latency ? This is a good way to figure out if you have BT connectivity issue.

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM NEW Firmware 2/6/2021

    DX300 does an amazing job for PCM, crazy good with NOS. It's only weakness is for now DSD, lacks warmth and depth. Anyways not my unit and quick impression. Compared with M8, I wish I had M8 and DX300 screen, UI. I'll wait for the amp module, maybe they will add to what I feel missing for...

    You can use the 3.5mm as a ground, but you need a special cable made.

    Introducing LUNA by DUNU, the world's first pure beryllium rolled foil diaphragm flagship dynamic in-ear! (Page 18: Loan Tour Announcement)

    How does Luna compare to A8000. I recall from memory, A8000 is more open and has better soundstage, more suitable for classical music, whereas Luna is just amazing for vocal jazz.

    Utopia sounded too closed in and intimate, Susvara is just on a different level!

    Introducing LUNA by DUNU, the world's first pure beryllium rolled foil diaphragm flagship dynamic in-ear! (Page 18: Loan Tour Announcement)

    To be updated on regular basis: First impression:27/March/2021 Luna is very source sensitive. I just had a quick listen with the following daps: HM1000: Sounded too slow and warm. WM1A: Soundeded underpowered, and the higher listening volume which provided the dynamics I cared for, was simply...

    Yes, but the unit gets very hot when charging .

    Hifiman HM1000: Worlds first Quad PCM 1704 DAP

    Yes, it can be. When playing via Hifiman app, all other BT connection will be disabled until the app connection is closed, in that case, hm1000 acts as a BT receiver. I'm very happy with HM1000 sound. Recently I had a chance to demo the M8. What a wonderful DAP Shanling M8 is, but I ended up...

    QLS QA361 impression thread

    Look into Quloos own battery pack, Quloos PS1. They can configure the USB out to match whatever you need, just ask them to set it for QA361. QA361 is still my current reference, I only use WAV only OS.

    Sony Walkman OS custom firmware (non-Android)

    If you have a lot of DSD files, WM1A/Z does wonders for DSD playback. I'm on the fence for WM1Z, I really want to buy one to get it modded. I have a feeling the next walkman will be more inline with ZX-500, WM1x will be one of the final DAP with the Walkman OS. There is just to much demand for...

    Don't wait, nothing is guaranteed. And international market release is a good 5 months after China release.
