    So I finally got my Moon audio black dragon balanced cables for the JH Roxanne II. I had been using the SE cable for about a month since I couldn't find the original JH balanced cables.

    I had to use the SE cable on Amp1. Switched to balanced cables and Amp3 today.

    BIG BIG BIG difference in soundstage. Highs seem to be a lot more pronounced and in your face. Lows are a bit calmer. I'm very impressed overall.

    The unit also runs cooler compared to amp1 where it heated up fast. Perhaps this is due to me using volume at 70 on amp3 balanced vs. 80 on amp1 SE.

    Good for you. I am still waiting for DX200 although I got amp3 in hand right now! :triportsad:

    Thinking about a Dx200 for Hi-Res streaming and offline import purposes. Anyone using one for Tidal and/or QOBUZ?

    Works fine for me, but you have to install lurker firmware first.

    Awesome. At the NYC CanJam I dropped my JH Angies off at their booth to be cleaned. They noticed that my balanced cable had a crack in the ear hook so they replaced it for me for free...which was great of them. The sound with AMP4 through the Angies is unreal, however, the IT04's are kicking some serious @ss as well since they've been burned in more and more.

    I just got my @teds headfood balanced T2 silver litz cable in for my LCD-2's! . My old beat up pair was sent in to Audeze for overhaul (thank you Sankar!). I figured it's time to put these guys on a balanced cable give the AMP4 some alone time with Audeze and see what happens.

    Now...if only the headphones would get here...lol

    It works a treat, this is the reason I got the 200. I used to have the AK300 but it didn’t do tidal offline . Like above you should use lurkers firmware as this helps IMO. So I use it rxclusively with tidal and offline when I have weekends away etc. It’s been excellent

    I'm very close to pulling the trigger on the dx200 to replace my ak100ii, will I be best to get the balanced cable for my angies or stick with the single ended one, would the change be a significant one?

    Does anyone have Neutron Player EQ settings for Westone W60? I’m curious what others have set up as I’d like to try some other configurations. I’m using AMP4 with the W60. Any suggested EQ settings are appreciated.

    From what I read on this thread amp4 and amp5 are the best amp available.
    If you don’t own any balance cable than I would suggest to go with the amp 5.
    The amp4 would require further investments in cables.

    What became of the balanced cable Angie ships with?

    I would say getting a balanced cable is an important part of this hobby. So many DAPs support it now a days, and it makes a nice difference in many of them.

    Hey there, pull the trigger you won't be sorry. Now as for your Angies...I went from SE to Balanced with them and won't go back. Switching over to using the Angies balanced will make a significant difference in the sound signature.

    Well to me, the AMP4 module is by far the best sounding. The closest to it is AMP5 SE. But with the AMP4 he doesn't need another cable, he just needs to get the adapter from iBasso. It's great quality and affordable.
