    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    whilst I have not heard the A90 but if it's anything like the thx amps then sibilance and flat sounding seem to be the right words describing the amp. 6xx is one of the warmer headphones and I've personally not had issues with it on even the harsher more clinical amps. I'd suggest keeping the...

    Actually I was told the auteur ltd was coming out in a mth or so back in March and given the last bath of stabilised wood were sold they should be releasing it soon. I couldn’t wait and went for the ambrosia maple tho with steel rods. Part of the excitement is you don’t know exactly what you are...

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    I have both on my desk currently, and tbh we are not really comparing apples to apples. since one is OTL tube amp and the other SS amp with a small SMPS. Having said that, ACP+ does have that euphoric almost tube like sound signature and its much cheaper and easier to build (the resistor...

    Yea I doubt there's a cause of the issue, I did switch the amp off and turn the volume knob all the way a few times and turn it back on again it seems to work fine again. Having said that its somewhat discomforting they arent using the components as advertised on the website, but I wouldnt think...

    received the FA-12 for a few days , and left channel on the Bal output suddenly gone. I have contacted Flux, has anyone else experienced this? fwiw, the sound of the amp is phenomenal before one channel went dead, SE output still works im enjoying that for now...

    ZMF cable pack (DIY)

    I noticed ZMF is these DIY Cable packs, and as a ZMF fan I jumped on to ordering one without built a cable before... I have done a few DIY head amp projects and have all the tools to assemble one I believe, but has anyone purchased and built one of these and can shed some light? zmf did...

    Sure i'll definitely come back on it once I receive the FA-12. But just specs wise FA-12 is more powerful and its balanced, I think comparing FA-12S with Whammy is more apple to apple, and there the Whammy uses OP amp vs FA's discrete. I do love the Whammy but unless you are very confident on...

    does the EQed old LCD X sound that good you got the new X as well? if you have both around would love to hear your impressions of OLD no eq vs NEW no eq and old eq vs new no eq.

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    Fellow Arya owners, I asked this ques earlier in the thread but think it fell through the cracks, so sorry have to ask again if anyone can help. Arya stock cable 3.5mm TRS. are there any issues to use 3.5mm TS (one ring on the plug instead of two) just like the Focal connectors. I have tried...

    Not sure why you would backdate tell people there's a huge revision. I'd understand if u do a silent revision or tell u in advance, just doesn't make logical sense

    LCD-X and XC Update

    Thanks @mikecheck95 , yea i understand BF2 is not a MQA decoder, but I think if not on exclusive mode, it can only spit out 44.1k and with exclusive mode on it can get to 88.2K. good to know roon is a workaround, but i basically use tidal only and I dont really have a flac library to justify...

    LCD-X and XC Update

    I am always curious about audeze HP's but have never owned one. Whilst i'd like to try EQ, my main setup is PC , tidal , BF2, and amp, and i realised that PC doesnt spit out the higher res or MQA unless on "exclusive mode" on the Tidal app, which means it bypasses equaliser APO. Is there anyway...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I own both. At first I thought the treble was a bit too bright and almost sibilant with certain recordings, but idk if it's my brain burnt in or the headphones burnt in. It sort of became a bit more tame and honestly I love it. For me I think they are good compliments of each other, given the...
