    The Sennheiser Orpheus 2? A First Look At The Sennheiser HE-1 (The New Orpheus)

    If you are looking at 60k setup just ask your dealer to give you a few well known brands and try them out. Nothing beats first hand experience in this hobby.

    The Sennheiser Orpheus 2? A First Look At The Sennheiser HE-1 (The New Orpheus)

    All high end headphones sound different. Different people prefer different sound signatures. Once you go over a monetary threshold it would all come down to personal preference. I happen to think HE1 makes a great all in one office rig for that person with a corner office on the 100th floor.
  3. Dan Clark Audio (MrSpeaker) AEON Flow Open, B-Stock

    Purchased the demo unit from Dan Clark Audio with new pads on 12/31/2019. I have recently upgraded to Aeon 2. The pair has low hours (other than burning in) and is in excellent condition (as you can see from the pictures). Will provide packing list/bill of sale if needed for warranty purposes...

    That's the right approach. Buy all the major audio gear before marriage - anything $10k and over and anything that's larger than a bookshelf.

    you do realize you can avoid all these USB, clocking and computer issues if you just went with a network streamer, correct? [edit] I mean all in one streamer, if you go with separate units, you run into spdif/clocking/jitter issues again. I have been using various Linn for over a decade now and...

    Have had Poly/Mojo for over a month now and here is my ranking of different modes based on sound quality acting as source only: flac via SD card in airplane mode >> local flac file via local DLNA server > Qobuz flac via local DLNA server > Qobuz flac via mConnect (iOS) > Qobuz via Airplay >>...

    This is the way. joking aside you are spending $1k+ on a portal dac/streamer and probably another $1k on headphones and $300 on cables. Adding an iPhone/iPad is just another few hundred. If you have another high end streamer your will be much happier with iOS.

    Just buy an iPhone/iPad and be done. Don’t understand the big deal. When I first bought my Linn streamer 10yrs ago the dealer said I needed iPad and network storage. So that’s what I bought. Used iPhone costs less than a cable these days.

    It’s working for my use case. If you want apple level of “everything just works”experience, you buy mass market consumer audio not boutique high end audio.

    Lol. People expect too much from a high end audiophile company when it comes to tech integration. Just be happy almost everything works - that puts them in the top 1% of the their peers 😂

    Probably not worthwhile for Chord to keep piling more money into Poly given they have probably reached almost everyone who would consider buy something like this.

    How much difference will a high-end DAC make?

    I will trade my rtx 3080 for your AB-1266

    No. The trick is to max out your budget so that any marginal upgrade will cost you exponentially more.

    No clue. My old Klimax ds sounded way better than the dac in HE1. Even ayre dac was better. They should have just sold the HE1 without dac and save $10k.

    The dac in HE-1 is mediocre at best. I would get separate dac for sure.

    you can find used mojo/poly at a very attractive price now and I believe poly is good enough for regular use with minimal headaches. The fact that poly plays native 192khz flac streamed from Qobuz or local DLNA server means that no DAP can compete in terms of the limitless music library. If you...

    Foobar. It’s really just a text file with relative file path and file name. I also don't have "Quickplay Controls" in Gofigure. I just see the playlist but doesn't do anything when I touch it.

    What are the file name and playlist requirements for music on SD card? Gofigure sees the m3u playlist (points to the flac files on the card and not IP address) but doesn’t play anything. Why does chord expect us to guess how they want the files and folders names? Connecting to wifi to access...
