    Unique Melody MEST Indigo/MEST MKII/MEST/mini MEST Announcement and Impression Thread.

    Do you find LP goes well with most genres (I'm predominantly Rock) or more of a one trick pony and aimed at voice / classical etc? I actually really like the cable they've used, looks good, fittings are really nice, rolls up well...glad they've supplied a decent cable to put me off trying...

    Unique Melody MEST Indigo/MEST MKII/MEST/mini MEST Announcement and Impression Thread.

    Well, think I must have somewhere between 100 and 200hrs on my Indigos now and absolutely loving them. These are without doubt the best in ears I've listened to. I've heard others that do certain things better but as a whole, these are stunning and work very well with my library. A combination...

    Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven (5:45-5:50)

    Very apparent to me. Hear it clear as day on the right channel on IV & x Led Zep, not quite as clear on mothership (cd and vinyl) but still there.

    iBasso DX300 MAX Dual AK4499 Snapdragon 660 Octa-Core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM Firmware: 1.03 Available.

    There's a whole raft of requests in the bug thread worth looking into. This one is having the music folder displaying the alphabet down one side so easier / more convient to get ti the artist or album or song you're looking for rather than spinning the wheel and hope you land close.

    iBasso DX300 MAX Dual AK4499 Snapdragon 660 Octa-Core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM Firmware: 1.03 Available.

    3hrs is poor. Have you cycled the battery charging? I did both digital and analogue a few times from 20-80%, 20-100%. I was listening to tidal this afternoon for around 3 hrs and only dropped around 30%, 8 ch, DAC at 90.

    Shanling M9 Announced - New High-End Player

    Absolutely this. Preference seems to slip by the way side with the constant new gear / reviews. Even with other IEM I thought SS was it for me and may have proved that to myself by getting m9 as well. Probably a hard thing in this hobby to accept you've found something that 99% floats your boat!

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    I'm half tempted by the FE but it's somewhat off-putting when you go onto the website and see fs/fusang with massive proce drops so soon after launch. Feels like buying a new car next to one that's got 1k dealer miles. At this rate, give it a few months and we'll see a green version for 8k and...

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    FE appears to be the Indigo styled version without First Times cable. Just different aesthetics. 20 pairs of each. Wonder what the mainstream unit will be with the new bcd.

    Shanling M9 Announced - New High-End Player

    Does turbo mode make any difference with IEM?

    iBasso DX300 MAX Dual AK4499 Snapdragon 660 Octa-Core 6GB RAM 128GB ROM Firmware: 1.03 Available.

    @Paul - iBasso any new FW on the horizon to spruce up the GUI? Just had an M9 to play with and the 1st thing that stood out was having lettering for library whilst in it, made going to the right artist / album / track so much easier. There appears to be very little comment back from ibasso in...

    The Watercooler-- Impressions, philosophical discussion and general banter. Index on first page. All welcome.

    N8 are a relative bargain now IMO, price has fallen through the roof compared to retail. N8ii on the horizon has probably stunted purchases both new and used, plus streaming is probably more mainstream that it's ever been which makes N8 a little more niche. I even find myself drawn to the odd...

    My old Romi N8BB is in the classifieds. Slightly overhyped ad on the mids / vocals IMO. Utter bargain for the sound it produces. Technically excellent, more delicate than MAX (Air, sparkle, less weighted bass) and even though it's from memory and different IEM's, i preferred it over M9...

    Shanling M9 Announced - New High-End Player

    Feels solid, distinct notches / clicks when turn and case doesn't interfere with it.
  14. Shanling M9

    Like new, less than 24hrs runtime, Ticks pretty much all boxes for me apart from I prefer MAX SQ which means it won't be staying. Literally like new as only opened last night and it's been running on loop since then. Includes case. On original Firmware, hasn't been updated. Bought from...

    Been a bit of a lurker recently but thought it was about time I chirped in... New toy (s) day courtesy of Andrew. 1st off, a big thanks to him. Superb customer service and delivery, even for someone living across the pond! Onto the goodies... Indigo. Yes. These are the IEMs I have been...

    Cayin RU6: R-2R USB Dongle DAC with Head-Amp

    I did. Solved it by swapping it out for an S2. :)
  17. Sony XBA-N3AP with Kimber 4.4mm Balanced

    Sony XBA-N3AP with Kimber 4.4mm balanced. Like new, bought them with 3hrs on them, i've maybe used them for 20hrs max along with a break in of somewhere around 100hrs. Bought these to use for casual listening but U12t have taken that slot so these need to go. Boxed, all accessories unused...
  18. Focal Stellia (Mint)

    2021 Focal Stellia. Mint condition, nice even patina starting to form on the headband, all accessories unused apart from the travel case. Boxed and in original shipping carton. Fully broken in and sounding rather good. Bit too big to lug around when travelling so changing back to IEM...

    Shanling M9 Announced - New High-End Player

    Yeah, quite curious myself. Don't usually change 2 things at the same time but here we are. I think MAX is superb but it is a rather chunky unit for travelling with and walking around the office. M9 was on the cards before I got MAX so really owe it to myself to try one out! 1 will stay and...

    Shanling M9 Announced - New High-End Player

    Should be on the way soon, hopefully manage to get a few hours on it to A/B before heading away with work. Indigo should be broken in by then as well. :) :) :)
