    Yeah I see why you’d think that but those graphs are relative... it’s brighter than the Black or the FIBAE4 but I sure can vouch the FIBAE7 is not bright overall. It has energetic mids and sparkly lower treble and good upper treble presence but this adds excitement... the bass presence is strong as well as full bodied mids...the baseline of the overall is still organic and warm to me. This combination is what makes the F7 so exceptional to me...

    How is the Dunu Hulk? I just picked one up to try it with my IEM cache.

    i like the hulk. it adds some fullness to the mids , a very nice bass texture and still clean airy highs :) the only downside ... its very heavy.. i use a cable clip ( from penon ) with it , that fix that issue while on the go use.
    the change of termination is really easy and done in secounds :)

    Hulk is great, fantastic build as good as cables 3/4x the price... and the plug system is better than the DITA Oslo... as far as I am concerned it brings more body overall, good textures and superb bass control. It’s not heavier than 8 wires cables and it’s just as thick as most 8 wire in fact...

    I like big thick cables. Makes your chain feel substantial. I have a PW Audio No. 5 8 core that is really thick and love it.

    Well this is really awesome to hear good things about it! I'm looking forward to the HULK!

    For me A01 wins so far but i've only got approaching 48hrs on T01 and from experience with A01, it really needs a few more hours on it to hit the sweet spot.

    Initial impressions, A01 SE wins it for me on SE, T01 is sounding pretty good on balanced (only just started to listen to T01) but my 2.5mm cable is out on loan so can only use stock VX cable on SE and an alternative cable on 4.4, so not a fair comparison. Got a Danu hulk on the way so will be able to compare modules without cable affecting sound.

    I wouldn't say T01 is particularly bright in the top end, it's just more open. A01 maybe slightly more organic and can't really go wrong paired with VX. I'll back to back both modules towards the end of the week and see where they're at. Hoping a few more hours on T01 pulls the midrange up a bit.

    I use VX set on default 0/0/0. Wasn't a massive fan of 1/0/0. Already has plenty of bass when it's fed with it!

    Did any of you compare it to Sony wm1a?
     
  13. singleended5863
    @Vitaly2017 has compared N6ii with WM1Z not wm1a...way back in this thread.
     
  14. Bartosz
    Do you know which side I can find this comparison on?

    Just type WM1Z in the “search this thread” bar towards the top of this page
