    Light Harmonic Geek Wave

    ...Wasn't that what the Geekwave was supposed to be? I know this is all bull, but if it weren't, shouldn't Larry put all his time and energy into making that player to give to Geekwave backers instead? Again, and I can't stress this enough, this is merely a thought exercise because nothing's...

    :ksc75smile: Agreed- how these companies can internalize the amps required to drive electrostats in something the size of a snail shell would be groundbreaking enough, but then getting them to play nice with drivers that have different amp requirements while avoiding phase issues seems more...

    Light Harmonic Geek Wave

    It’s naive to think that the charlatan who’s kept your money for 4+ years would willingly give it back. Larry’s earned an “F” rating on BBB and continues to ignore a constant barrage of legitimate complaints here and on his own forum- it’s clear that he does not give a f*ck about fixing the...

    I think I'll try reformatting to ExFat.. not sure why mine won't work as FAT32.

    Anyone know what the largest micro sd card can be used with the ak380? My sandisk 400gb card keeps getting read as "damaged."

    @ezekiel77: thanks for the impressions! Since you have them both, what are your thoughts on how legend x compares to w900? Many thanks :)

    Can anyone provide a link to a good "how to read graphs for dummies" primer? I've never really had the attention span to learn, but as far down the rabbit hole I am in this silly hobby, its probably about time. I can't wait to be able talk about 100,000 kilamegatron spikes, and whatnot...

    Edit: tried to attach a random gif of a French bulldog attacking some cabbage, but it didn't work and can't troubleshoot it cuz my baby's screaming in the other room so gotta go now! :astonished:

    Unrelated to anything above but thought I'd bring some random musings: The AAW900s are sooo disappointing! They're like the brilliant student who doesn't study for a test and gets a B. They've got so much ability, but are hampered by their tuning. The bass is yearning to be let off the leash...

    crinacle's IEM Ranking List

    Got it and and agree with your assessment. I really wish AAW would hook up those damn passive filters already. I'm beginning to worry that they lost interest, which sucks because they seem like they would improve its tuning.

    Is your rank of the w900 as "S minus" with or without the awesome sauce eq applied?

    I'm pretty sure that Nic said that awhile ago before switching up his order, but I could be wrong :beerchug:

    Interesting, so with the AAW900s you prefer its pairing with the dita truth copper cable over the 1960s 4wire and SilverFi IEM-R4/5 cables?

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    @flinkenick: in your AAW900 review you said that you used cables to improve its problems with timbre. Which cables do you suggest, and how successful are they at making the aaw900s compete with the IEMs you've chosen in your top 5 ranking?

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Based on what Nic said earlier about the order and correct guesses by the 1st 2nd and 3rd place winners I was able to go back to that thread and deduce what Nic's top 5 IEMs are (of the remaining contestants with zero wrong guesses thus far, per Nic, 1st place was the only individual who guessed...

    @crinacle: can you compare strengths/weakensses of the fourte & aw900?

    Well I for one, know far less about the Dream than @flinkenick (perhaps he can better comment). But during my brief listen at CanJam and local audio festival, the Dream impresses me the most with its dynamic lows/bass. It's deep, and has a lot of power behind. Which comes with a consequence of...

    @ Wata: We've spent the last several pages basically dealing with your hurt feelings, and I don't know if you're trying to troll, but just stop. Can we agree to move on and not discuss anything Noble-related besides their actual products for maybe 7 days? @ranfan: the Dream sounds interesting...

    Are there any other Ak380 mods besides the Red Wine Audio, which is no longer being offered?

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    I've never been a cable denier, but I found that the "moderately" priced cables that I used gave sonic changes that either were very subtle or could be chalked up to placebo effect. I figure the best way to put to rest whether or not cables make a difference is to try one of the greats...
