    I also have the Amp 9 and Solaris and agree, the hiss is very noticeable on quiet passages and quiet music like acoustic guitar. On louder music I can hear the hiss between songs but once the music starts I can't hear it.

    Exactly. But i cant resist to accept it because it sound good for me. When comparing to stock amp, i feel AMP9 have more full body sound, nice separation between instrument. Very obvious change for me. AMP9 also produce a little boost in low when comparing to stock AMP. Oh ya, AMP9 produce less heat. I'm the one like the microdetails sound and AMP9 really suit my taste.

    Hi. Wanting to root the device, I was wondering how it would be possible to install magisk without a modified recovery.

    Agree with your almost of comments. Surely, there are so many factors affect to the music quality.

    I only mentioned amp8 that has good output power, but I dont think it is best for HD820. I have not got HD820 (I listen earbuds more frequently than full sise by my own career and living conditions), but my high empedence Ve Zen is a typical example.

    And I listened DMP-Z1 I borrowed my friend, I think that DMP-Z1 is not easy to drive HD820 effectively. External amp is needed for DMP-Z1.
    Lilke you, I love dx220 too. But I also ordered ak sp2000 CU for next adventure :).

    DMP-Z1 has very weak output at 3.5mm port and low gain.

    4.4mm has 1500mW into 16 ohms and high gain, it can blow your ears with hd820. But then, I wouldn’t allow any friend to touch my DMP-Z1 shiny surfaces hahahah!

    I am no expert in this. But I felt that there is noticeable different in sound quality. dark black, and better separation.

    I just got my DM6 back from the airport. :p So, will take a few days to compare the sound quality. But I Love the DX220 (except some ranting).

    Okie. my last ranting about the DX220... :) look at the USB connector.


    Enough said.

    I still love the DX220.

    I agree, there is hiss with the Solaris and DX220/Amp 9. However, after using it for a few songs, one stops noticing the hiss as the combo is so dam engaging, or at least that was what happened to me.
    I also noticed hiss with the Massdrop Empire Ears Zeus, that hiss was worse, and I couldn't continue to listen to the combo.
