    Dita Audio Flagship - "The Dream"

    Can you share a bit more of your experience pairing Encore with OSLO? Listened to the final-tuned Dream XLS and I must say I loved the sound of this...fast, coherent, spacious and able to dig out lots of details of a track. If you like the original OSLO, this updated cable is pure heavenly...

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Look out for the improved Dita OSLO cable...ergonomically much better than the original and I was told the cable internal are also much improved. Still Japanese made. Have not a chance for A/B comparison other than it matched the new XLS beautifully

    Dita - Project 71 aka ‘Bumblebee (2019) & Sakura 71 (2021).

    Pretty flexible so ergonomics are a whole lot better than the Truth cable...yes the Truth cable can be a challenge some time

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Fellow 1Z owners...I'm getting better SQ (dynamics and micro details) from selecting high gain than choosing low gain...even when both are played at similar loudness. Is that your findings too? Do share...

    The Official Sony MDR-Z1R Flagship Headphone Thread (Live From IFA 2016)

    Many so-called "leather dressing" especially the cheaper ones are no more than silicone based dressing, which does more harm than good. It is important not to shop cheap and go for reputable brands with solid history in this industry. Leather are just like our skin...they need to breathe so you...

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    The 4-wire certainly don't sound like a copper cable at all...to me it sits at the top of my favourite iem cable with only the Leonidas 8-wire coming close. *of course I have not heard them all but I've heard quite a number

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    KANN warms (heats) up after awhile while I kept my 1Z continuously burned in for the past 3 days and its still as cool as a cucumber. Sounds wise it is not even a fair comparison.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    There will be a Hugo+Poly/Hugo2+Poly in the work...so depending on the available dates, will definitely be my way ahead rather than these giant (and expensive) DAP stacks...actually Mojo+Poly already looks a very interesting proposition, at least for me

    The Brise Audio Japan Cable Thread

    There should be a little opening on the cable that exposes the cable without the insulation and jacket...that should give you an idea if its copper or silver. Anyway...are there any place in Tokyo where I can walk in and purchase one of these totl Brise cables?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Haha you just made me go back and re-examine my connectors again...they looked OK and perfectly aligned to me so it must be the cameras angle then :k701smile:

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Modified WM1Z by swapping out the pathetic Kimber Kable yield noticeably much better performance from the player, mainly in soundstage and the upper mids (which are important to me).

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    Still some way to go...if at all. Been waiting for my Geek Source far longer. what a bunch of fraud Back on topic...the technology of DAP (like KANN & SP1000) seems to have progress quite rapidly, but can we really hear the difference when compared to earlier gen DAP? Still loving my HM-901 and...

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    The tray could (possibly) take 2-SIM cards or 1x SIM + 1x micro SD card...its on most smartphone now unless you're still on the backwards iOS eco system (don't flame me...just tongue in cheek comment lol)
