    Found an interesting new USB dac with balanced output (dual sabre9018q2c) on Amazon (link) and I gotta say I'm impressed with it's sound.

    Shanling M2s > Sabah DA3 > Tin Audio T2 (balanced)

    I love chifi lol :ksc75smile:

    Same here Pinky, I like the simplicity of their iem's however they are not up my financial ally at all:sweat: The build alone looks incredible on them and as mentioned several look like jewelry:wink:

    Fortunately for Pre-Order pricing this little jewel of a rig actually falls into the <$200 "Budget" rig category!

    From what I've read about that Sony player, its huge bass and warmth should pair beautifully with Encore's leaner, more detail-oriented sound. I suspect this will be a match made in heaven. Well done!

    Your review of the Encore's sound was dead on. And somehow I knew you nailed the personality. I understood the soundstage and mids from your review. So I showed up and heard the Noble Kaiser Katana out of the NW-WM1Z single ended, then went Encore and it was as you said. I need to make a balanced cable as I have not heard it balanced, they were sold out.

    Though I think my home reference rig is getting me the final Encore sound or close to it? At this point? Apple Touch 5th and 6th generation are good too as it's easy to power. But even an Asgard is still keeping them slightly different than dynamic driver bass. But I don't care as from your review I knew the water beforehand. THX
