    What about the hiss?

    What about the hiss?  Depends on who you ask.  With regards to hiss, I discuss about it in my QP1R review, if interested. [​IMG]

    Is the hiss discussed in the first 700 pages of your review? I can't find that chapter :wink:

    Seriously, great review. Very comprehensive.

    I was also able to hear the QPR1, although not with EE iems. It's a great sounding player. I hope I can get an extended audition one day to see if it can replace some of my multiple rigs. 1 dap to rule them all would be nice.

    I take that as the sincerest compliment, my friend. :beerchug:

    Search "hiss" and...you've found it!

    Thank you for the kind words. It's seriously a lot of work, time and psychologically crazy because of all the nice, awesome people and even trolls that like to have their fun. As long as I can help people in any way that I can, it's all worth it.

    Here is my view right now during my Master of Arts Commencement:

    Hit me up later. I can send mine down for you to use for a few weeks.

    I tried my Zeus R with the QP1R last night and the hiss was the worst that I have ever heard from a DAP/IEM combo. On low gain it was still too much.  Way too much gain also - couldn't use a volume setting above 10 on most tracks.  I'll save the QP1R for other things - it's great on the Earsonics SM2 (can't say that about many DAPs) and the best I have heard at driving the Phonak PFE232.

    That's what I feared to be honest. I'm not overly sensitive to hiss and it's something that's going to bother different people to varying degrees. Other people have other views but my gut feeling, based not upon what I've heard but on what I've read about the QP1R, is that it would be too much for earphones as sensitive as these.

    I'm curious to try it out though. Not curious enough to spend all that £ on something that could render my favourite IEMs unlistenable.

    Is that a crystal piccolino cable?
