    Looking for transport like Xduoo X10T II

    Hello, Does this transport (xDuoo X10T II) give Native DSD to the DAC through USB OTG, or DoP? (I could not find this info) Thank you.

    Can anyone recommend the TEAC HA-P5 ?

    I wonder how this beauty sounds compared to Sony PHA-3 (balanced/separate ground). And is there any chance to replace the battery nowadays?

    Does anyone own the Pro-Ject Headbox Ds2 B

    Well, I do not know if DC Purifier will improve anything with the AccuBox S2. I do not have the iFi thing to check it out. But literally, I do not hear any noise with the AccuBox. Bass and imaging are improved mostly. The DC purifirer might work well with something like this, I guess...

    Does anyone own the Pro-Ject Headbox Ds2 B

    Hello, I've been listening music with this amp for more than 6 months already, and I like it VERY MUCH. The source is TEAC NT-503, mostly Hi-Res files, I use balanced XLR connections. The headphones are the ATH-AD2000X - I converted them into balanced ones (pretty simple, there are 4 cores in...

    What's wrong with Musical Fidelity?

    Thanks a lot for your input! I think I'll stay away from MF. Most likely I'll get a Pro-Ject Head Box ds2 B the second thing will be upgrading with a linear power supply. I have a not high impedance cans - ATH-AD2000X.

    It has only one DAC chip and two amps (one for eachbchannel) in balanced mode, correct?

    Fostex HP-A4BL (the A4 with balanced output)

    There are differenr pinouts for 2.5mm balanced. The so-called "European", "Asian", "Fiio", "AK".... Looks like the pin-out of your adapter does not match the one of you male-jack in the phones..

    Reply to review by 'aqtaket' on item 'Oriolus BA300S'

    Great review! Do you think it will pair well with ATH-AD2000x terminated with 4.4mm balanced plug? Does it have "enough juice"?

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    shane55, It's a Kingston Canvas React microSDHC512GBSP I'm quite happy with it. There is a 1Tb on the market, but i'm not ready to pay a price of the player for it... The actual capacity is 466 Gb (my 400Gb Sandisk is 367 Gb). Both work flawlessly with Rubato, I use mostly Hi-Res and DSD files.

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    Thank for your post, lazner, nice to know your impressions on this DAP. Did you compare it to Onkyo Rubato via line out? I'm in the process of selecting a new DAP, so if Rubato is more detailed and refined regarding sound quility, I'd stick to it... Does Rubato suuport 400Gb microSDXC cards, do...

    Sony NW-A50 Series

    Nice thread, guys)) I got interested in this DAP very much. So, now I know it supports a 400Gb memory card. Nice!!! Has anybody compared it to NW-ZX100 regarding SQ? I'm going to use a player with a poratble amp via WMport (to get a proper line out). So, is there any substantial difference in...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    When I formatted my 64GB SDXC cards into exFat (FW 2.40 supports it, but they were previously formatten in FAT32) - the "freezing issue" disappeared totally.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    It has nothing to do with the file system. I just meant that the sound changed a bit with the new FW. BTW, now I hear a light hiss between songs. And yes, the wrong bitrate infi, if i press the Info icon. But it does not bother me. Something has definately changed with the sound, it might be...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Finally, iRiver added exFat support. THANKS!!! I reformatted my 64gb cards, now i've been listening. I'd say the sound changed a bit - especially bass and soundstage expanded. How the heck they did it?

    Shure SE535 Special Edition

    I use an Oyaide HPC-SE cable. The red one. I'd say the mids became more "loafy" and lush, attack improved a bit. And the highs became less harch, they became more "airy"

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Tried the official 2.10 FW. Rolled back to 1.33+ Listrid patch. I don't know, but I like the "fleshy" sound more (both with Shure SE535ltd-J and ATH-ESW9). I do not really need the USB-DAC function, I'd better buy a full-sized DAC.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Sorry for repeating the question, but has anybody noticed the difference b/w AK100 playing music and AK100 hooked up to USB for charging and playing music? I think some battery/power tweak and mods might be possible...
