Hello, I need a balanced cable for my dx300, it would be for a denon adh 9200, some recommendation, since they are neutral headphones, some cable that enhances the low frequencies.

regards
Imho the tuning of DX300 will enhance low frequencies enough themselves so that a neutral headphone like Denon Ah D9200 matches nicely with it.
I had used a self-made balanced copper 4x 63-Core OCC with it.

That would be what I think, but what if he wants to get even more low end from 300+D9200 specifically ?

Try anything with good Litz Copper, or pm your favorite cable maker. At least they should be able to provide some rough details about why, and how, which cables did they aim to achieve for which goals.

I posted why earlier, but basically I had a ton of problems with it, battery problems, charger problems, software problems. I purchased it along side an SE200 and M8 and the DX300 sound paled in comparison. Maybe I had a defective unit, but there were enough problems that I was not willing to try a replacement.
I thought you said you returned it two weeks ago

Do you really think that they are neutral? :) The midrange, yes but the bass and the treble is a slight tasteful U. In any case, you won't get a significant (if any) signature change for D9200 just by changing the cable. I just grabbed what is available on amazon and the sound is perfect with D9200.

https://www.amazon.de/Balanced-Compatible-AH-D7200-AH-D7100-Headphones/dp/B07MC5ZLTH/

So in essence we are in agreement. MQA enabled stream sounds better than HiFi. Works for me :)

What "works for you" is apparently still worse than what is Hifi for other providers. Tidal, shamefully, names and sells worse quality audio as if it is the standart quality and pushes people towards their MQA. In addition, I saw this today on Shanling website, for their new player:

So, every single time a player is released, it has to be re-certificated by MQA (taxed), and every time that certification cost is reflected to the consumer, although that consumer may not be using MQA. That is not the case with a normal HiRes or DSD file. It is such a dirty scam.

If shanling want to add it not a problem,your not buying anything from Tidal or any other streaming service be it audio or video and if you really like something why not just buy it in the format you like.

You don’t get it ? MQA is patented, and if you want to have it featured, you have to pay for it in order to feature it on your devices.

You are not buying anything from Tidal, but you are buying from the DAP makers. Do you honestly think the DAP makers pay out of their pockets ? They paid it first and then passed down to you. So in the end of the chain, you are the one who is paying for MQA

Just something about the DX300: Fortunately I have a very stable device and software stability so far is rock solid. As said before, I liked the DX300 and Solitaire P so much that I took out the BX2+ for a minimal setup. It is just awesome! I have listened to this piece so many times and I cannot mention how good the detail, layering and separation comes out of the pairing. DX300 also makes up for the lean upper mids.

And what is the problem with that???
