    Unique Melody Newest Flagship-- Mason Fabled Sound Special Edition/Mason Fusang CIEM&UIEM

    METAL MAGIC RESEARCH (Thoughts and impressions)

    Yes, Mahler's 8th symphony is as "special"as his psyche was. I like it/him so much. I have enjoyed his 8th last week via iem, too.

    @HiFyAK2020 Once in this thread, you've recommended the album "Hervé Sellin Sextet / Branford Marsalis". my search for this album was unsuccessful. It seems to be unavailable as download or as CD.

    For me personally, I cannot listen to classical music without paying full attention to the the music, following the harmonics and melody. Insofar I cannot let classical music just play in the background. With jazz the degree of attention, I’ve to pay, is smaller and depends on the degree of...

    The external shape looks quite similar to the A&K JHaudio Layla Aion, which I've owned and still like because of its form factor and design.

    Thanks for the reference to your short review about these adapter. Very helpful for me! I think, I will have to buy this one, too. I own SP2000 since the very first day when it was available and was never forced to think about adapter solutions. :worried:

Unfortunately, I'm not able to establish a respective connection between Mac and SP2000. First, I've connect both via usb-c...
