i remember black and white television with tubes
It also had hisses Roflmao ! And the priceless smacking to make it work probably
All of this reminds me of my preference for Dolby B and C NR switches on tape decks back in the day. I know the 'hiss' well.....
Without the hot swap, I can only use two headphones with AMP9: HD 630VB and Momentum 2 (both over 110dB efficient). Hot swapping and using iEMatch opened the door to use almost all of my headphones with it. I don't plan to keep doing that but, until iBasso (or perhaps @Windows X or @Lurker0 ) makes new firmware to workaround this, we're stuck with these frustrating quirks.
As some have said here, the sound really gets optimal at about 100 hours. Spent the first twenty hours listening to it..left it alone and came back. They were 100% right. You don't want to stop listening...it'll be a a long while before AMPMK2 goes back on...maybe when it goes up for sale and replace with MAX
Wonder what they'll say about this generation of electronics 25-40 years from now.
I imagine there should be more headroom with most iems and AMP9 compared to using it with headphones.
I've also found that a hot-swap plus iEMatch (despite the lower attenuation) leaves tons of headroom, enough to make use of the graphic EQ (which further attenuates volume downward). I barely go past 90 volume even with iEMatch and EQ on using my Sony Z7.
Oh yeah - Dolby B, C, S, HX Pro, TDK SA-X & Maxell XLII-S High Bias Tapes - those were the days and thank goodness they are behind us now.. For those that remember the searching for top S/N performance and how to minimize noise, hiss, record artifacts that drove us crazy - and now we are in digital bliss (at least for me)!!! I still have my Onkyo TA-2600 Cassette Deck buried somewhere in my garage along with my Alpine 7390...
Amazing how far we have come in technology - and the incredible performance we carry in our pockets!
I still use cassette here and there, even LP . Both have it pros and cons . But I do agree about the speed of the evolving technology for our hobby. Heck, there is a $30K Reel 2 reel decks currently being produced
The craziest is that we are able to have Tubes sound in the pocket! Even the glows!
Just when technology is trying to lower the noise floor, now some of you are praising
the hissing sound??
Yup, I remember 8 tracks, had a bunch...then had an insane number of LP's. Sold the ones worth anything back in the early 2000's. Got really good money for some of them like an original Rolling Stones, Sticky Fingers with the working zipper and the pink panties inside, and a few others.
Yup, had the B/W tv...aluminum foil "ears", and watching all "3" tv channels...lol
LOL I had that same Onkyo! Man, remember the fun of making mix tapes? LOL
Seems like sooo long ago.
Wait, it WAS a long time ago...I'm old. lol
Technology is trying to do a lot of things, for example, how to reproduce music from digital into analog with an authentic analog sound . Also, how to convert analog recording of real instruments into digital files correctly...etc....etc....
The points is that, if it sound good, then it is good.
Just heard from Paul. It's going to be "a while" before the Max is ready for release guys. Enjoy what you have because it could be a long wait.
Don’t go around picking fights to other DAP with your DX228EX ;P
LOL, I am loving this DX228EX combo and it's maker for the joy it's bringing me!
My wife, however, keeps yelling at me because I simply can't hear her with my headphones on. lol
waiting for my dx220 delivery today...
