I'm a new happy owner of Onkyo Rubato DP-S1(b).
I haven't played with any settings yet, just transferring my music files onto a 400Gb microsdxc card now.
But I have a couple of initial questions:
1) The player has a balanced 2.5mm output. My mostly used IEMs are Shure SE535 ltd-j. I believe I should buy a balanced cable for them (my current Oyaide HPC-SE has only two cores and cannot be terminated to a balanced jack, I guess).
Are Bispa 2.5mm cables any good? I mean sound/price/durability. Or can anybody recommend a decent but not overpriced balanced cable, please?
2) I have an Oyaide HPC-35R cable (3.5mm mini-jack => 2RCA). If I re-terminate it with a 2.5mm mini-jack, will it make any difference when used with a headphone amp + fullsize headphones (the headphones are not balanced).
Thanks in advance for your replies!
I have this cable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F1RH7Z...olid=1W473HGBLSWOP&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it ordered for my M300 Planars. They seem to have decent reviews, and are a very good price. I'll be getting them on Monday, so I can give a better opinion of it then.
Re the Oyaide HPC-SE, it looks like it has a separate cable to each connector, which would have 2 conductors in each.. so you might be able to terminate it with a 4 connect 2.5 mm
