    The Astell & Kern AK240

    What!!! Designed by Stevie Wonder perchance. I don't care how good it sounds, I would be embarrassed to be seen with it. U. G. L. Y.

    Musical Fidelity MF-100 On Ear Headphones.

    Listening on these now as I type. First album so probably not representative of how they will sound in a month or so. I am actually quite impressed. Not normal a MF fan as I find the sound a bit thin but I needed a set of foldable headphones for the new longer commute and these fit the bill...

    London Calling...19th October, 2013.

    I might have a couple of units I would be willing to sell if we can get a list together.

    The Official Bose Bashing Thread

    I have just bought a Bose Soundlink Mini wireless speaker for when I am working away from home and don't want to put headphones on. £170 compared to £120 - £180 for a Jambox or Soundmatters equivalent. In limited testing in shops I thought the Bose sounded fuller and better so I bought it...

    Colorfly C3 Discussion Thread

    I also ripped everything to FLAC. Took me two years but it was worth it. If you start with your most listened to music it can take the stress out of it. I don't use the C3 with a BH but I can verify that it is worth the investment in time in getting the source files as good a quality as...

    TrollDragon   I don't know if it was a blip but the sound level seems to have restored itself now. I tried to reset it (doesn't normally work) and it seems ok this morning, if a little quieter than normal.   Gremlins!!

    Help! I have just upgraded the firmware to (not a pleasant experience again) and now the sound volume level seems have gone right down. I have to turn it up full just to hear anything. Anyone else encountered this or am I the lucky one?

    Quote: Dryvadeum   Not that I have noticed. I am not a bass head but some of my music has strong baselines and I have not noticed any reduced impact on the C3

    Just Audio AHA-120 Appreciation Thread

    Quote:   The C3 is much better quality, at least in terms of music. The interface is poor in comparison and you will not enjoy finding the music so much but once you hit the play button you will be blown away. It depends on what music you listen to but anything with simple voice and...

    Just Audio AHA-120 Appreciation Thread

    I have been enjoying my AHA-120 for about a month now and it "just" (sorry - pun intended) keeps getting better. Everything seems so much clearer and cleaner. It works best with my Colorfly C3 but the Cowons benefit too.   I can rediscover so much music now!

    Thanks John. I am expecting my experience to be the same but need to listen more and let it loosen up a bit maybe.

    It is a fantastic little amp. It is truly portable, well built and long, long battery life. I think sound quality is excellent for the price and I am very happy with it. The Just Audio is more for when I am sat in the office rather than on the train or walking to work and the Little Dot will...

    I have heard nothing but good reviews which is why I bought it and the audio quality is a nine and the build quality faultless. But then it should be for £350. I don't know about you but I think it is important to understand your first impressions and how they change over the listening hours. I...

    Only three stars at the moment because I have yet to hear it really sing. I hope it will do with time and a variety of music but I can't hand on heart give it any more right now. Hopefully I will come back to this review after listening to the Beach Boys etc and I can up the rating.

    Review by 'RevC' on item 'Just Audio AHA-120'

    First of all let me say that I acknowedge that this is an expensive amplifier. Not extravagent in the big scheme of things, particularly if you consider some headphones but as a portable amp it is significantly more expensive than others on the market and for this reason it needs to justify...

    London Meet - Saturday 27th April

    Ah yes, I remember dying of embarrassment when I had to ask for Doot Doot by Freur in Virgin Megastore in Plymouth. The girl in HMV had already thought I was mad. Luckily the chap in Virgin just reached down and pulled out a pristine 12" copy with the squiggle nicely displayed on the front.  ...

    I bought this player to complement my larger Cowon players and on the strength of some of the opinions written elsewhere on this site. When I saw it for £70 on Ebay I decided to take the plunge.   Boy am I glad I did!   The unit comes nicely packaged but my initial impressions were not...

    Update on my C3 for what it is worth.   I have been using the C3 to play a variety of music from the Beach Boys to Efterklang and mostly using it amped with a Little Dot Mk1+ and through BeyerDynamic T50p. Happily I can report that I am really enjoying the sounds this combination is making...

    I don't have a soldering iron (probably just as well as I am messy with a tube of glue) and I have plugged the USB back in to no effect so far. However I will try both of your suggestions and see if that sorts it out. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.   I am itching to try some more...

    Juanbarake I went to the Fanmusic store in Shenzhen. Sorry I can't remember the name of the exact location but it was a 6 storey electronics store with hi-fi at the top. Look up Shenzhen Audio online.

    Review by 'RevC' on item 'Little Dot MK I+'

    I bought this on the back of buying a Little Dot Mk IV tube headphone amplifier earlier last year. I was very impressed with that unit and so thought I would extend this to my portable listening kit.   I have been using it now for a few months and overall I am impressed. It is a neat little...

    how good does the "little dot mk3" perform?

    If it helps I just bought a Mk IV (whilst in China so no shipping issues) and use it with my HD600's and so far I am very impressed. Walking around smiling even though I am back at work!!
