Noble Audio - the Wizard returns!

  1. Malevolent
    You know, I once told John that a hybridized Encore would be something else. I'm sure he was already working on a prototype at that point in time, but I'm glad he brought to fruition that idea.

    While I'm not ready to take the plunge just yet (I need to save money for something else - not audio), I'll be happy to get one sometime in the near future.

    Can't wait to try the Khans once the demo units hit the stores.

    For those of you considering the mojo as a source, be careful.

    I use a heavily balanced modded one myself and it sounds phenomenal.

    The stock mojo sounds fantastic too, but there is a caveat. The mojo is very sensitive to the transport that is feeding it. Do not simply feed it with any random player and expect it to sound equally good off any player.

    One player which I have found to pair excellently is the Onkyo dp-x1a with the furutech ADL USB cable. I only use it when sitting down for a longer period of time though.

    Does the khan and the noble gold x silver cable pair well?

    I'd like to learn about the Mojo mod (via PM or elsewhere, don't want to jack the thread too much). BTW, which sources didn't sound great with Mojo? I've only used AK products (straight and modded AK240, AK120II).

    Seemed to me it does.

    I know, Darko makes the Poly sound like the greatest thing since sliced bread and that it is easy to use. But the sound is excellent, and you only need the Mojo to get the sound. Tks.

    So I'd just about given up on my Encores. They just weren't doing it for me on my Mojo after two years. Then I plugged them into my Ayre Codex DAC on my desktop. Holy mother of pearl! The headroom on these IEMs is amazing. They're my favorite headphones now, and I have TH900 MKII and Ether Flows. I need a mobile amp/dac that can do what my desktop DAC is doing. Something with some punch. Any thoughts?

    DX200+AMP8 does it for me with my encores.

    Very few in the wild I would think.

    Not sure what your total budget is for a player, but going up the AK line has always shown slight improvement in SQ. If you want the higher end players, check the FS/FT section here on the forums, getting a used player can save money and allow you to jump into their higher end, if the budget allows of course.

    They rocket up in price pretty fast!

    Their pricing can be criminal at times, but hey, if people quit buying them at full retail, the prices would come down. I will always recommend people buying used.

    I hope that the SR15 is a nice player in its own right. It might be entry level for AK. Pretty much max for me.
