Orphy (or anything in life,) is worth it if it’s what you’re after.

I find the impact the orphy has on the bird’s sound to be truly incredible.
The truth is that the stock 1960s, First Times and Orpheus offer three great but different flavors of the Trailli, which is an excellent IEM (arguably the best currently available). I have all three and there are clear, noticeable differences between all of them. For me, the Orpheus is the most satisfying pairing (to the point where, for a moment, after a few hours of listening, I was genuinely questioning whether I needed to keep all my other IEMs - ha, who was I kidding?). Source also has an impact in how one hears the differentiation between these pairings too. All of them are great combos, it’s just a matter of personal preference.

What is the sound like with Traillii + N8ii. Is this a good pairing?

Trailli + Orpheus + N8ii is perhaps the finest combination I’ve discovered yet. The N8ii is simply the best DAP I’ve ever heard.

Enjoying it daily
Probably the LP7 can kick some butt next year
But I suppose it will be price x2
And streaming ... hopefully but ... 🤷

I have the stock 1960s with the Traillii and I’m giving some thought to upgrading from my current R8 to something the next level up. I’ve noticed a few people say that the N8ii is quite bright, but I’m not sure if that was supposedly on certain settings. I was hoping that there was a bit of warmth, perhaps with tubes. I’m not really a fan of bright equipment.

LP7 will not have streaming and I wouldn’t expect any flagship class LP product to have streaming/Android for the foreseeable future.

Seeing your outstanding and venerable collection in your signature ... I just have to ask. If you'd have to give them all up but three ... which one would be the keepers? Thanks

PS: I am hoping for Oriolus Trailli JP, EE Legend EVO, EE Odin.

I own most of the same IEMs. I would pick my favorite Bass, Mids and Treble. This would cover my entire library.

Empire Ears Legend EVO (best bass)
UM Mason FS Red Halo (best mids)
Elysian Annihilator. (best treble)

But, the smallest collection I would want to keep is 6. This is how I rank my top 6.

UM Red Halo
Aroma Jewel
Elysian Annihilator
Vision Ears EXT
EE Legend EVO
Fir Audio XE6

Have you considered adding a C9 rather than buying a new DAP? Inherently has some warmth even in SS mode plus you have the tube mode option too.

That’s a tough one but probably…

1. Trailli
2. XE6
3. EXT

Close runner-ups: EE Legend EVO, Softears Cerberus, IMR Dark Matter & U12t

I’ve read a lot of peoples views on the C9, but it wasn’t something that I’d ever considered getting myself. I’ve just noticed that you have R8, C9 and Trailli. I’m presuming that it’s a good setup?

It is indeed. Very versatile and works great with the full sized headphones too.
