    Thats some local Hong Kong brand iem ?

    It's a wonderfully addicting IEM. I think our tastes are at least somewhat similar as we both love Solaris-- the VX is definitely worth checking out if you have the chance.

    Sounds like a Chinese/Greek hybrid.

    Used to see a lot around here in HK.

    I heard the QVC Vx is bassy too?!
  5. singleended5863
    Yes it is. But the DX220 is charged faster than N6ii and it sounds somehow better to my ears of course with amp9. :smile_phones:
  6. Rockwell75
    They're from Shenzhen which is just outside Hong Kong if I'm not mistaken.

    I wouldn't say it's bassy...it's more neutral with perhaps a slight bass boost. Best BA bass I've ever heard.

    Good to know from different opinions. Do QVC make the custom Vx?

    Yes. If you live in North America Musicteck can assist you with the process.

    Changing amps is kind of cheating since the N6ii can also change out amps (plus the dac). There will be more modules for the N6ii, so until then it is not fair to compare anything beyond the stock players in my opinion.

    The n6ii charges pretty fast. The n6ii gets 5-6 more hours per charge than the DX220...which is well worth any extra time it takes to charge imho. Quick charging is not very helpful if the charge doesn't last very long.

    I didn’t say that N6ii doesn’t sound good. Who knows after Cayin comes out the E01!
    In the moment to my ears DX220 with amp9 is my best portable system. Of course, I am listening both system right now not to compare but to enjoy them.:L3000:
  12. singleended5863
    I have the DX200TI which takes awhile to charge and I did get used to that. But if I have a quick charge for listening as quick as I want so my listening session wouldn’t be stopped. That is a benefit for me. :kissing_smiling_eyes:

    Not sure about that... DX220 has a dual DAC setup and T-01 shows how much of a battery life penalty it is to have a dual DAC over a single DAC...N6ii/A01 vs DX220/AMP1 mk2 is unfair comparison from that standpoint, vs T-01 it’s a much closer call especially since the N6ii has a bigger battery.

    Now from the performance standpoint, it shows that single DAC can take on a dual DAC setup, I don’t feel cheated performance wise with the single AK4497EQ vs Dual ESS9028Pro. Cayin was smart there. Of course that means you don”t get DSD512 but DSD256 is pretty overkill anyway... this is where modular DAC/Amp can allow you to get longer battery life with a stock single DAC not to mention get higher spec’ed and/or lower consumption future DAC chips.

    I don’t see the N6ii having 10 motherboard anytime soon as it’s probably more R&D and build constraints to motherboards vs AMPs for DX***

    I personally prefer N6ii/A01 over DX220/AMP9 but of course your mileage may vary as we all have different preferences...

    Any of you guys using amazon music HD with the N6ii? The app says the device is only capable of 24-bit, 44.1k. Maybe I'm missing something or it could be on amazon's or cayin's end?

    Amazon Music can't access then N6ii SRC so it uses androids built in one which will likely only go up to maz 96 on some phones but fixed on N6ii. This is coding on Amazon Music part. Nothing Cayin can do tbh.
