    Hi Jason, sorry for a quick question. I know that the California repair center has temporary clothes for training purposes. And reopen on the 3rd. And I was planning to mail My sp1000 to replace the back panel and battery. Do you think I will able to get it back before April? Because I going to have a trip. I wish can get it back before the first weeks of April. Thx

    If you want something smoother without loosing resolution, you can also try W80, I believe Tony sell's Westone as well. Or if they still have 64audio N8 universal demo or Trio - try those.

    It's possible. We are currently not accepting requests for repair this week as we are in the process of upgrading our customer support and ticketing system over the next few days. The new system will help streamline repair requests and tracking.

    Did you already submit a request for repair and been issued an RMA number?

    Hi Twister, saw you at the show. Yes, I listened to Westone too, another disappointment, too dark. I'm actually happy with my AndroSS and Xelentos. I'm thinking of picking up the CL2 to complete my IEM Triad. I really liked the Legend X, but out of my price range.
     
  5. twister6 Contributor
    and you didn't find CL2 to be too bright? But either way, paired up with SP1000x you will get probably the most musical rendition of treble. Never fails, with so many IEMs I find other DAP pair ups to be brighter in lower treble, then switch to SPK and it's a music to my ears :)

    Yes I already got a RMA number but didn’t ship out yet.

    Yes the CL2 was bright, but the overall sound signature appealed to me. If I do actually decide to buy it, I'll give it a more extensive listening session up at Audio 46. If i remember, it had nice bass too... If i do actually get it, I would probably use it more for classical.

    If you have an RMA number already, you should be good. I just sent you a PM.

    I just White Diamond Polish from amazon glasses cloth, make sure you closeup the type c and headphone ject. And polish at least 1hour for each side.

    I still haven't gotten around to replacing the Dave as yet. In the mean time Ive been using my SP1000 as a USB DAC to drive the 4Z and I have to say its doing a mighty fine job of it. Im enjoying this combo so much it appears to be slowing down my progress for buying another dedicated desk top set up. Go figure!
    Anyone having similar results using the SP1000 DAC function?

    QDC Anole VX - I thought that these were fantastic at Canjam NYC this year - Anyone here get to try them.[​IMG]

    I find the 64Audio A18t custom to be my favorite of all iem with the SP1000, its as resolving a setup as I've ever heard . Plus you can also tweak the tuning some with the m15 or m20 modules. I just recently purchased several Effect Audio cables to round out the setup with the Eros II pictured below.

    I love this pairing especially with EA Lionheart.
     
  14. Dionysus
    Yeah, I too have Lionheart, its a smoother signature for a lack of better word, right now I'm playing with Eros II. I have my eye on the Leonidas II, but my wallet and I are not in speaking terms when it comes to audio gear :)

    How is the default 64Audio cabling?
