Hi everyone. Another lurker for quite a while.....I thought I had an account, turned out I was wrong and so signed up to join in I got into portable gear around 4 years ago on a trip to Japan - I purchased a pair of Sony's outstanding XBA-X5s and a NWZ-ZX1. It was a great excuse to rip my entire CD collection to FLAC and I started to purchase CD quality music too. I kind of lost my way a bit later on, the headphones are outstanding and I don't want or need other wired headphones but the latter I have to admit not really up to scratch. So definitely need a new source and probably have to try the headphones in balanced! A few weeks ago, I purchased the Sony WF-1000XM3 after tried some cheapie Chinese TWE - the convenience of no wires is another level for on the go. Bloody excellent piece of kit! Hopefully I have a focused plan for my mobile gear so I can get back to buying high res music, but I know how money pit hobbies can be!!!! Looking forward to my time here!
