Anyone heard of, seen or listened to the Opera Consonance 32-384 DSD 128 Portable Music Player? Have started a thread on it that I'll be adding to over the next little while. Come on over and check it out if you're interested in a high-end Chinese DAP that can compete with the big boys!

The HI2050 sells for as low as $35 on Aliexpress. If you aren't treble sensitive, they are an amazing sounding and very comfortable headphone.


Ordered a pair yesterday :wink:

A bunch of old-farts with hearing aids talking about effects of after-market audio and digital cables, jitter, etc, right?  I think I seen this one before.  Every cable disbeliever I talked to always references Ethan Winter video and tells me "I don't need to try/test replacement cables, Ethan said so" lol!!!  Big mistake because you have to test it yourself before drawing this conclusion.
 
I don't discredit anybody's work or believes, we all entitled to our personal opinion and as I always say, there is no "right or wrong away about it".  We all have a different perception of sound, use different headphones, sources, audio files, etc.  I personally don't agree with some of their stuff because I tested a lot of headphones and can hear a difference between stock OFC and pure silver audio cables when listening to hi-res DSD audio files.  The same with digital usb cables, though I don't believe in $1k usb cables, I run a test with pure grain copper cables with silver outer core (check out my review of Audioquest cables, follow a link in my signature, scroll down through all my reviews toward the bottom) and I found $25-$35 AQ cables make a difference in comparison to $5 cheap generic usb cables.  Just using my ears and my head as the main tool to assess the difference without relying on someone else's opinion about

Cables are tricky. If the cable changes the source signal (impedance/resistance/whatever), yes you will hear a difference, no matter what price the cable is.
 
Once you get a strong enough core though, and imp/resistance matches, you won't hear a difference. I did the "coat hanger" test, where I used coat hangers to connect my speakers to my source, and A/Bed with a $200 cable with silver tips. No difference.
