    Think we are actually agreeing and then it's down to personal preference. The Oppo does soften the edge a bit, and nothing wrong liking that. When cd first came out, I changed my whole hifi to try and achieve that! Now, I'm leaning towards excitement, ears probably losing those highest frequencies, and I like Gradi 325s. It's all good, so many choices in headphones, and now DAPs too.

    On the mojo thoughts above, I would venture it has little sound signature of its own, a very natural sound. Whether everyone likes that is due to what they are used to and coming from, and what equipment accompanies it. I don't think it's sound can be beaten at sensible money, but still interested in an additional stand alone DAP. I heard the QP1R at London Canjam and it was best DAP I'd heard, above A&Ks. But aim to hear this Onkyo before making a move.

    I had both before selling the ZX2, I can understand how the Mojo can get you under its spell because it really has a different, spectacular sound very natural, dynamic, engaging but despite the wow factor I'd say ZX2 is more organic and tonality is more refined and depth is better. We'll see about DP-X1 when customs at last release it from their grip!

    I've modded my Yuin PK1 earbuds to Balanced today.

    The sound is GREATLY improved. When DP-X1's dual DACs / Amps activated in balanced mode, it made me speechless.

    If you decide to buy the Onkyo. Balanced 2.5 TRRS headphones is a MUST.

    Great feedback, thanks. much appreciated. That applies to all the responses by the way. I guess the answer is to audition them both but so difficult these days finding kit to audition.....but then I guess I cant talk having just ordered online from Japan! Had shipment confirmation last night...cant wait [​IMG]

    That is my plan. TRRS and solid silver DP-X1 vs TRRS solid-silver ZX2 :D

    I'll be curious to know what you think :)
    Just careful about the AK type 2.5 TRRS thing, I still wait on Whiplash to tell me if I have the right one...

    Yeah. I still don't have it yet. But it seems AK style is being confirmed everywhere. However I can always fix it :D.
  8. davidmolliere
    I lack that kind of know how unfortunately... since you're knowledgeable could it fry the amp with the wrong type?
  9. Whitigir
    It is not even shipped yet lol, and I chose quick ship option
  10. davidmolliere
    When did you order?
    They're good on their promise of fast shipping from my experience and testimonies here :)
  11. Whitigir

    A couple day ago. Yeah, it takes 3 days for them to ship it out as quick shipping. So basically i don't expect it to get to me until next week :xf_eek:

    Man that's killer!

    Glad you like it!

    Did you make your own balanced cable or was it made/modded for you?

    I wonder how the Yuin PK1 compares to the Celsus Sound Gramo One earbud earphones ^^

    The Onkyo website explains the use of balanced/unbalanced so:
    16-300 Ohm = unbalanced
    32-600 Ohm = balanced
    I am not sure if driving 16 Ohm IEM´s balanced make sense.

    You might get them before me, customs are getting on my nerves and slow to resolve the issue :frowning2:
    Apparently my package is part of a random control by the french customs, nobody can tell me how long it will be.
    It would have been the same either with EMS or FedEx apparently.

    Morning friends
    What is the general consensus on here regarding copper vs silver for a balanced cable?
