    got it...thx....lately I just bluetooth from phone to H2 instead of stacking things and for me, its a lot more convenient....
     
  2. tofudog
    getting closer to exactly what you did; love the Vega but dont need both. What are "perfectly mint" Vegas selling for now? and-did you sell through here?
     
  3. fogsound
    Yeah, I sold here for $770 in one day so you could most likely go higher than that.
     
  4. tofudog
    thx...u glad you made the trade-no reservations? Listen to my Vega almost more (w SXC8 cable) than I do my Ether Flows....wasnt thinking I needed to change gear for awhile...
     
  5. fogsound
    Same here - Got rid of my Flows as well. Always went for the Vegas even when home.

    No regrets WRT sound. The only things I miss are: 1) I prefer the fit of the Vega. 2) I prefer the style of the Vega.

    I was waiting for a "formal review" before picking them up....you made up my mind for me and Ill order tonight....wont give up the Flows tho! many thanks for your insights!

    Yes, on the iEMatch port at 4 Ohms OI it seems to tame the bass a bit and makes them more even.
    Plus with the measure switch being a more neutral/ reference brings out the sound you describe.

    I like the 1 Ohm port, seems a bit more full and layered. Keeps the Comet signature.

    used Shanling m3s as source.


    ---------------------

    Got my ipod touch 6G now working (Had to turn it off and on )

    Similar results to the above. but less difference.
    A good mix, Apple, ifi and Comets.

    ————————-

    I think the Comets can scale up more with a mid fi dac/amp (ifi xDSD or a dap).

    Anyone using or tried the Atlas with HiBy R6?

    What about the Nano iDSD and the Atlas?

    I am.
    I usually don't use single end on the R6 but Atlas cable is SE...but it does sound great

    Yeah, I was considering maybe getting a Litz balanced 2.5 cable or even this https://campfireaudio.com/shop/alo-audio-tinsel-wire-cable/ if it comes back in stock soon.... but wanted some feedback on the Atlas R6 coupling first. I see the impedance on the R6 is 10 as opposed to 19 on Atlas, that doesn’t affect the sound significantly I’m guessing?

    I am enjoying more on WM1A and DX150 but nothing with R6 is sounding off. You could get IFi IEMatch just to be sure if it concerns you. Sounds great to me but most recent listening is WM1A or DX150
     
  13. radici
    Interesting ... I'm actually tossed up between the R6 and DX150 to drive my Atlas. Will use S8+ till I get one of the 2 in a few months. You'd suggest the DX150 over the R6 for those iems?

    Also what about adding IFI Nano iDSD? Thanks a lot for your feedback by the way.
     
  14. Hawaiibadboy Contributor
    No battery life and FW make me not rec DX150, I am just enjoying the sound. The IFi xDSD sounds very very nice and is first amp/dac ever to not tax my Note 4. That is something you might wanna check before getting into the android dap game

    How does the Atlas compare to the Andromeda? (I strongly prefered the Andromeda over the Vega).

    And does the Reference 8 cable for the Andromeda also work on the Atlas?
