    SONY IER-Z1R

    That's not actually correct, the vent is, as rutter mentioned, below the 'R' and 'L' letterings, directly behind the mmcx connectors.

    Campfire - Solaris

    Of course people are entitled to their opinion, and you are too, although I like to call yours "wrong", not "an opinion"

    Campfire - Solaris

    It's significantly larger than Andro, but the case should still fit it.

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    M9 sounds the most accurate and correct. Z1R is more fun but the price is also close to 2 times more.

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    I have given the M7, M9, and Z1R all a good listen, and I'm going with the M9. It does so many things right. I'll have to scrounge up some money first, however :p

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    I'm not a fan of BA bass, and as for the U18t... not a huge fan either, but I can see why you'd say so. The M7/M9's bass is noticeably more DD sounding than most things, with a nice thump, great texture, and a decay that doesn't feel forced. It's fooled me into thinking I'm listening to a D...

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    The IER-Z1R is now officially listed on the Sony USA website for 2300USD. I've also had the pleasure to try both the M7 and M9, and I am blown away. It is staggeringly good, imaging is precise and immense, technical detail retrieval is insanely high, but (and this might be weird for some) is...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    For you folks on Sony players who want an Acoustune ARC03 cable, I have a relatively new one (just two months old, barely used) that I'm selling, drop me a PM if you would like to get it.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Ah well, whatever it is, I still prefer the 1A's sound to the ZX300 by a huge margin. DAC function or not, I'm still set on copping one

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Aw and I was hoping that there'd be a DAC/AMP function added in FW2.0 ):

    Cayin N5ii Android based Master Quality Digital Audio Player

    Very interesting DAP! I love the i5, and would've nearly bought that if I didn't come across this thread. But Andy, do tell us, any plans to release a Cayin i5ii? :p maybe with 4.4mm balanced even? hehe. Also, I must say, the specs look very promising! I might get one for myself someday soon...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    I forgot to include, it's not actually mine :P I wish I had the money to afford even half of one LOL. And yes, I've tried the two side by side. Using either DAP as the reference point to the other, the SP1000Cu is slightly warmer and more mellow, and has sweeter mids, along with a more natural...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Am gonna get a WM1A in time to come, so where can I get this? I absolutely love the look. Also, can we get pics of the sides and bottom? I wanna see how much of what it covers :p EDIT: scratch that, I just saw that it's a Dignis case. I'm Digging it for sure

    iFi Audio nano iDSD Black Label (TOUR details - PAGE 12 / TOUR participants - page 26 post #386)

    I'll need a second listen, I wasn't really putting much thought into it the last time I a/b'ed the two. Oppo HA2 is comparatively brighter for sure, more neutral imo. BL sounds slightly warm/u shaped, relative to the HA2. It's a good buy at the price, better value than the Mojo for sure, or at...

    iFi Audio nano iDSD Black Label (TOUR details - PAGE 12 / TOUR participants - page 26 post #386)

    It might be just me, but I barely heard any difference between the two modes. Then again, I'm not a super analytical listener, I just press play and enjoy the music. Yes, it comes with that. it's a big blue USB female to USB male. Mojo seems to be slightly warmer, but just slightly. Staging...

    iFi Audio nano iDSD Black Label (TOUR details - PAGE 12 / TOUR participants - page 26 post #386)

    You are looking at two completely different things, and I'd suggest either you go at a quiet time, or jsut take into account ambient noise. There are other customers besides yourself in places like Stereo and Zepp.

    Acoustune HS1501 AL / HS1551 CU

    Gave myself more time to it, and I get what you mean now, the sparkle is definitely there, I was just lost in the vocals and bass to notice, but now that I've adjusted to the sound, I'm loving the easy treble too, sparkly but not sharp or too bright

    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    I guess I like something that's punchy and musical, with good emphasis on vocals. Nothing too smooth, as I like my details and speed. For my gear, I'm gonna use the Acoustunes HS1551, Oriveti Primacy, and a Final Audio E3000 into it
