    Calgary Meet Impressions (May 31, 2015)

    Took some photos yesterday (complete with obnoxious instagram filters). I did most of my listening with my SD2s just because they're what I'm familiar with. I'm not very good at writing about sound but I'll give it a shot. Astell&Kern AK Jr: Sounded a bit congested to me. The UI was also a...

    Astell&Kern AK380

    From a durability standpoint I'm not sure how I feel about those 4 contacts at the bottom of the DAP being so exposed... I would rather that they just put another 2.5mm TRRS jack to act as a true line-out.

    I found this just searching for 3.5mm to 3.5mm 75 ohm on Google, never heard of Pacific Custom Cable though so I'm not sure how well made their cables are. Moon Audio can also make one, though they're significantly more expensive.

    ALO The Island USB DAC!

    Currently $199CAD at Canada Computers until the end of April, great deal considering how weak the CAD is right now. I just ordered one.

    You can use the DX90's coax out, but you'll still have to power the Concero HP by USB.

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    Did a short bit of DAP comparo with my friend today. I liked the X5 (though it didn't like my microSD card), but I'm still partial to my DX90. I think the jury is still out for him.   Mine: iBasso DX90 -> plusSound X Series -> InEar SD-2 His: FiiO X5 -> Brainwavz R3

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

      The memory wire on the stock cable was too annoying with my glasses, and when I took a knife to it I ended up stripping a bit of insulation off of one of the small wires on one side  so I just bit the bullet and ordered a new one. Fits perfectly!   iBasso DX90 -> plusSound X Series -> InEar...

    "Audiophile" DAPs that support ID3 tagging

    I thought the DX50's price wasn't released yet. I looked at the thread earlier and it was like somebody transcribed the closed captions to a game of The Price Is Right.

    "Audiophile" DAPs that support ID3 tagging

    Preface: About a year ago, I bought a pair of JVC FXT90s and decided I was going to stop wasting money into audio for a while (and waste it on other things). About a month ago, the 3.5mm jack on my iPod Classic decided it was time to stop working on the right channel, and just last Friday, I...

    A high-end phone with sonics similar to the hfi-780 - does it exist?

    Since you're into modding, have you considered transplanting the 780's drivers into a more comfortable housing?   Maybe you could consider one of Ultrasone's Pro series headphones, their housings are shaped differently so you might find them more comfortable.
