    Unfortunately not, that's why I'm asking otherwise I would already be listening & asking you personally.

    Hope you have a great day !

    Finding a demo in Hong Kong should be straightforward, check out the Headfi shops at Sim City in about a week later, you should find a few shop in 2/Fl and 3/FL carrying YB04.

    We don't have any show scheduled in US within next two months, maybe you can contact Andrew of MusicTeck to find out if he has a demo unit for home trial later.

    We might include YB04 in the N6ii tour later this month, will announce here if that happens.

    No problem, thanks for your help.

    However, as said, I am outside HK & US, so finding a demo is problematic.

    My closest contact is Andrew from MusicTeck but given I am outside US, I am not fond of purchasing blind but I may have to consider it.

    Hope you have a great day !

    Any review yet twister6?

    I have the chance to listen to this pair at the Hong Kong Audio fair for about 20/25 min. My brief impression is that they are very capable in all bass, mids, treble but VERY neutral in every aspect. Nothing really stands out so it could be boring for some.
    However they do come with different tips (bass ,reference and vocals) to enhance your preferred sound. Also the soundstage seems to be quite big for its price range, and I think they pair really well with N8SS and N6II. Haven't tried with other DAPs

    I have over a dozen of products in my review queue, some from 1-2 months ago, so I will get there soon but not yet. One thing I noticed, while the sound is balanced and natural, nothing too extreme with a stock cable, it really scales up once you start cable rolling. For example, I tried it with Dita OSLO cable and it was quite impressive.

    Any plans for the same cable in a 4.4mm?

    Without giving your review away, any other recommended cable pairings you’ve found?

    Sorry, I didn't have a chance to test other cables yet. But actually in a process of reviewing the new Effect Audio Vogue series of budget cables, so it will be a good opportunity to pair up them with YB04 when i get a chance.

    Sounds good thanks, look forward to it!

    A little expensive, maybe. But I really love the increased bass this cable brings, without losing a bit of clarity. Also, it's great to finally hear the YB04 in balanced.

    How significant (subjectively), is the increase in bass in your opinion?
  15. PinkyPowers
    Generally speaking, cables don't have a "significant" effect on the sound. They tend to tweak the signature in subtle ways only. The same is true in this case.

    If you're looking for a warmer sound without spending too much, check out the Effect Audio Ares II +. The "+" variants have a thicker gauge, which has a direct effect on bass.
