  1. Acoustune 1695ti in great condition

    Hi friend, I have a pair of 1695ti in very good condition if not excellent. I dont use them as much as I should since I started working home during covid 19. I would love to sell this excellent pair, 2 ear pieces are scratch free and no blemishes or dent. I always preserve them in the case. The...

    Topping A90

    It is different topology of course, and the Icon put almost 1W to wide range of impedance and this is confirmed by Icon audio when I ask them. It is just a matter of taste though and I still really love A90 mate.

    Topping A90

    Ok so I have spent quite sometime with the A90 and with some burnin time the sound start to opens up more and more. The bass slam is hard and extend really well on my Abyss V2 and surprisingly the Heddphone bass also benefits from A90 as well, the bass has tightened up more and slam a touch...

    Topping A90

    Thanks, I am using the Icon Audio Hp8 mk2 signature edition and I also recap the output capacitors to mundorf silver gold 0,3uf which is far better than the Jensen of the signature edition. I used it with Psvane 12ax7 T series mk2 and Shuguang Treasure cv181 and Shuguang 6sn7 globe edition to...

    Topping A90

    Ok I received my A90 and I am not sugar coat anything here. First off, it is a great amp for 500usd and there is no doubt about it, it drives my Abyss Diana V2 and Heddphone with authority. I used to own Drop 789 and SMSL sp200 and I would say that the A90 have mid range that far better than...

    Topping A90

    @Sayplastic You are right there is no concrete evidence right now to say if the preamp is any good. But let me tell you this, I own the topping D70 and later change to the D90, and I would love to try the topping A90. I really like Topping products, but their preamp is not good on the dac I...

    Topping A90

    @bahamot Hey, yeah I know the Topping a90 is not based on thx technology. I am very curious about its design topology, whether it is class A, class AB or D. Anyway, its spec and measurement seems promising. I really love to get my hand on it to try out the sound quality though.

    TOPPING NEWLY HEAPHONE AMP A90 WILL BE REVEALED ON MAY

    @shenzhenaudio Hi, I am very much interested in topping a90. I own topping d70 and really love the dac. I already email my local dealer to see when it is available in the Netherlands to grab. The thing that makes me curious is what design topology of this amp. Is it a class A, class AB, class D...

    Topping A90

    I dont think you can find the d90 under 300usd. It is very nice piece of dac though I have to agree it is a bit pricey for what it is. Still it is very good dac. I am curious of the a90 but I am not a fan of thx and its ultralinear sounds charscteristic.

    Very rare, I have not seen the coating wear out like that. Do you have replacement tube?

    Icon Audio HP8/MP 3

    Well friends, I can tell from my own experience that Icon Audio HP8 mkii works great with planar magnetic headphones, I am now pairing it with my Abyss Diana and Hifiman Edition X v2 on medium output impedance and notice no distortion in sound. Also, I try to experiment switching from low output...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    This is teasing me. I am not pretty sure when I can get my hand on it. So far, I believe that the Heddphone is very positive can but there still two issues like weight and headband also yoke extension that leads to difference experience by individuals. Imho, Chord Dave is certainly a super dac...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    I have never really encounter hot spot in my years of this hobby so I really do not have any experience with that. But one thing is for sure that as great as the sound of any headphone I would not trade it with comfort. Ultimately, it is the listening experience, which include both listening and...

    Hifiman Edition X

    Feel bad man. I have never had that problem like you and it is hard to say what is the problem with your pair. All you can do is patiently wait for their answer and hope for the best. You will cover the shipping fee and that is for sure. I dont know I think Hifiman could think about a program...

    Hifiman Edition X

    Bro, it sounds like you just got a driver failure. Does your unit still under warranty? I think contact hifiman customer services, I believe they will help you. I am not sure if they still do service for Edition X v2 or not because it is discontinued product line. I have tried Arya, I think you...

    Hifiman Edition X

    Sr to hear that. There is one thing I dont like about edition x v2 is it utilises 2.5mm connector. I feel that is the weakest point because the more time we use by some chance that connector might broke interally. I suspect your can has that problem maybe the wire broke inside. I have used my...

    Hifiman ed x v2 or Focal Clear?

    I own the edition X v2 and have tried the clear countless of time. I would suggest to go for the Edition X v2 because it is musical sounding headphone, the soundstage is immense both taller and wider than the clear can offer, bass quality is good and great quantity. Imho, a better headphone overall.

    Icon Audio HP8/MP 3

    After 50 hours of listening and tube rolling between Shuguang Treasure 50 years anniversary 6sn7 and Psvane CV181 Tii, I come to conclusion that I will stick with Shuguang 6sn7 and Psvane 12AX7, the reason for it is Psvane though are superior in terms of clarity, details, and soundstage, I find...

    HEDD Announces HEDDphone With AMT Technology

    I am very hyped and really want to try these. I have read more than 60 pages of people discussing how great the Heddphone is. Sad thing is I contact Hedd and they not yet get back to me more than a week. I think they would prioritize selling to American market first. Is there anybody in Europe...
