    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    Man idk what's your reference for bass levels but the z1r has quite a bit of bass. Z1r has more bass quantity than ex1k, M9, m7.

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    I can see why people say the M9 sounds lifeless. The M9 doesn't have very good dynamics. It is slightly warm and laid back. The bass extends very well but doesn't have much slam. For a BA based iem, the bass sounds full but lacks enough decay for a realistic sounding bass compared to DD. The...

    Three Brand New Earphones: Sony IER-Z1R, IER-M9 and IER-M7

    probably not at US MSRP. At AJ the price now is around $1099 which i feel is a better reflection of its performance. And no, an ex1000 it is not. EX1K has a hotter treble with more impactful bass and a bigger soundstage. However the M9 treble is much more controlled and the m9 has more accurate...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    So far so good. Receiver works great, streaming ldac from my pixel 2 xl to the zx300. OS is slightly snappier imo, sound is the same. Overall nothing is bricked and it is a great update.

    The Official 64 Audio Thread | apex & tia Technologies

    Well some people just can't hear a big enough difference. I mean I thought I did till I did a blind test. It's not like I used cheap cables too. Zx300 > Leonidas / Ares ii / Eros + / TWag V3 / DHC Nucleotide > Kaiser Encore / EE ESR / 64Audio U12. Some cables had an overarching different...

    Sony NW-ZX300

    Was this a known issue? What was the solution. I also have random connect-disconnect using the zx300 as my usb dac with a 2017 Macbook Retina 15"

    Sony NW-ZX300

    If you're on the fence on getting the zx300 leather case by dignis, rest assured that it's of great quality and craftsmanship. Cutouts are exact and the fit is tight but perfect. Buttons feel kinda tactile still, imagine the actuation is like compressing leather upon initial contact and the...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    @twister6 @Deezel177 Just regular alcohol swabs. I've another ares ii cable that I use too, cleaned with alcohol swabs once a week too. Perfectly clear though. I also don't clean the chin slider, more like just the ear guides.

    Hi Effect Audio, Even with weekly wiping, my chin slider has turned yellow. Item is still under warranty. Is it possible for this item to be replaced?

    yeah, keeping an eye on that. Based on all the user impressions the tone would be a balanced one with good clarity. Sounds right up my alley but shall wait it out.

    The HiBy R3; The New Double Dac R3 PRO on Sale Now !!!

    When it's set to DAC, the r3 becomes a dac when used with a PC. To use a dac with the r3 just plug in the USB coax cable and you're good to go.

    The HiBy R3; The New Double Dac R3 PRO on Sale Now !!!

    It's a real pity about the delays. The product itself is fantastic and the software stable. As a backer I'd rather a proper setting of a solid later deadline with quick delivery than an earlier promised date and slow inconsistent shipping notifications. Hope you guys receive your R3 too. Ps...

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    I guess it just doesn't suit my primary taste, but good to have around. I think i'll be keeping it as a throwaround iem, for trips to the beach or when trekking. It's laid back, easy to listen to and quite forgiving of poorly mastered tracks.

    a few years on and onkyo has yet to add gapless and cue support. The lack of cue support is infuriating; causing me to split quite a number of my albums one by one.

    Has anyone here went through with repair of 2.5mm and 3.5mm jacks with Romo Audio? Would like to hear your experience as well as how good the jack feels after repair.

    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    Not particularly warm. I've done a complete reset to make sure it isn't a software bug. If it persists I will contact Fiio. Just to check, what are your timer off settings? Also, is there any way to disable lockscreen for Fiio Music? I want to jump into the player the moment i turn my screen on.
