    Etymotic Research EVO impressions and discussion thread

    I have a balanced SuperBaX I bought for my UE customs and agree it sounds amazing with the Etymotic EVO. In fact, it’s my new favorite combo in conjunction with my PAW6K.

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    Always a chance you could get a dud. Mine have always worked fine. The only issue I have had is occasionally having the triple flange tips come off deep in my ear canal and having to use tweezers to get them out. Not fun! Right now though, I am really enjoying the 3DT more. I am pretty addicted...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    Not too big a deal. I reglued them myself with no issues and they have been fine ever since. It might be something others need to be aware of though as the eartip and nozzle could come off in one’s ear although this didn’t happen to me. They both came off at different times as I was removing an...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    I’m in total agreement here. I know it sounds crazy, but If I were forced to keep only one IEM in my collection it would probably be the ER4XR. To me, it sounds more pleasing than the ER4SR. I like the slightly elevated bass. Definitely needs a tight seal and deep insertion to sound correct...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    I have to agree with you. I have been listening to these non-stop for a few weeks now and have been thoroughly testing quite a few different tips. So far, the Comply Comfort 500 is my favorite. There are a couple others that work and seal for me but the Complys seem to give me the best isolation...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    I received my set of UM 3DT IEMs from Musicteck about a week ago and am thoroughly impressed. Here is the review I posted and my thoughts after a week of usage: Upon first listen, I was pretty disappointed. They sounded thin and anemic with a lack of realism. After about 20 hours of burn-in...

    Dethonray Dtr1 Prelude high resolution player

    I had this happen before as well. Every time I would try to update the firmware, I was unable to get it to happen and I would have to use the reset button to get the device to turn on. I had it happen with v3.9 and a custom version of v3.9 that boosted the level of my right ear that Anson sent...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    I had to perform that same surgery on my Oriveti cable. The memory sleeve really wanted to pull the Xelento out of my ear slightly which detrimentally affected the bass. On the other hand though, the implementation of the sleeve for the cable for my UE 18+ Pro customs is much much better and I...

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    Thanks for the comparison. I’m excited to hear them after they arrive Monday. I’d love to know the cables you received as well since the consensus seems to be that the 3dt cable could stand an upgrade. I’m currently using an Oriveti Affinity 4.4mm cable with the Xelento.

    Unique Melody 3D Terminator 3DT Announcement Thread

    Very cool! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts. I still really like the Xelento and they will stay in my collection for sure. Just curious about a comparison since I have to wait until Monday to get the 3DT.

    Beyerdynamic Xelento!

    Mine is absolutely legit and does not look like that.

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    Has anyone heard of an ETA for a firmware update for the LP6K? Seems like its been awhile since there has been an update.

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    I have successfully contacted them before at service@lotoo.cn They responded very quickly. I was impressed with their speedy communication. They even analyzed some file tags for me to determine an issue I was having which is going to influence a future firmware update.

    I can also confirm that exFAT seems to be the preferred format. I’m using a 1tb card with no issues.

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    It has quite a few options so it will rename the file at sync time in real-time to the card or player. It can transcode if you need. It can retag the file at sync time with resized artwork but only to the card/player so the original file remains unchanged. I used to use JRiver Media Center...

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    I use MusicBee to sync to my MicroSD card. It allows you to set a file naming scheme for the sync which helps ensure the tracks are in order on the player. It also will automatically resize artwork to your preferred dimensions (480px) and embed the art which this player seems to like. MusicBee...

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    I watched a couple 30 minute Netflix videos using Firefox and didn’t notice any discernible latency. I was using a 10 year old PC running Windows 10 with only USB 2.0 ports. Your mileage may vary. I couldn’t get my Arch Linux laptop to recognize the LP6K though.

    Lotoo Paw 6000 (2019)

    I just received the Lotoo PAW 6000 today and love the sound, features, and OS. This is a big step-up in sound quality from my other DAPs. It is an amazing player! The only issue I am having is that nearly all my files have embedded lyrics using the LYRICS tag but they aren't showing up on the...

    Dethonray Dtr1 Prelude high resolution player

    Thanks, the imbalance isn't drastic and hasn't gotten worse over time which is good. As for the SR25 vs SR15, I keep seeing conflicting reports. One review claimed there was no way he could tell the difference between the two in a blind test. Either way, I'm pretty sure the DTR1 will still be...

    Dethonray Dtr1 Prelude high resolution player

    I have the ER4PT and the ER4XR and I would agree that there is a great synergy between the Etymotic products and the Dethonray DTR1. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the slight bass bump of the ER4XR but I have come to really enjoy the extended range version lately. I was really blown away...

    Astell & Kern SR25: The next A&norma player

    I absolutely agree with you on those 2 points. I also feel that the reason to buy a DAP is primarily to play locally stored files. Getting to stream audio is simply an added bonus in the case of the A&K players.

    Astell & Kern SR25: The next A&norma player

    I Yes, it does. It tells you the bitrate for the files it streams and the highest quality they have is 24bit 192khz but there is no way to know what’s happening with Android SRC as the file is processed by the player. On the Hiby R6 Pro, SRC is bypassed and the device reports what the DAC sees...

    Astell & Kern SR25: The next A&norma player

    Could be. I prefer Qobuz anyway but just thought I would try Amazon HD for a month since a lot of people rave about it. I had also heard that Amazon HD stopped up-sampling everything to the max resolution off the DAP and thought I would check it out. I’m still preferring Qobuz though and it is...

    Astell & Kern SR25: The next A&norma player

    Good question. Here is a pic of the SR15 beside the Hiby R6 Pro playing the same song. The R6 Pro’s big claim is the ability to bypass SRC using their DTA technology. Interestingly, my Pioneer XDP-100r displays the same screen as the SR15 and the Pioneer definitely does not bypass SRC.

    Hiby R6 Pro - serious upgrade to popular DAP

    I don’t know if it would work but if I was having this issue, I would try a full reset from the System menu without the SD card inserted. I would then try to install the new firmware from internal memory without the SD card in. If that didn’t work, I would look at the steps required to do a hard...
