LCDi4 + Cipher + Anker USB-C to Lightning adapter + Hiby R8

Nice solution for an awesome setup. I will be able to borrow the i4, so can include them in my classical music series. I don't think we have this type of adapter lying around, but will keep it in mind.

My setup for the coming time is: FiR M4 - DITA Oslo - Shanling M8 - Idagio Premium+

Shanling M1, KBEar Diamonds w/KBEar 16 core. Can we just say the Prentensers wrote "Middle of the Road" for this rig:rolling_eyes:

@dawningistheday Love those 232's and always told myself I'd buy a pair and it seems something always pushed them aside and I know it should not have since I find the PFE-022's to sound incredible! Now I'm going to make myself sad with regret:sob:

Nothing wrong with the 022s either! Yeah, I’ve tried lots of IEMs, and a few rival the 232s for me, but none that would totally supplant them. To me the 232 top-tier in sound, and peerless in comfort.

Exactly, I did forget how nice they fit! Always liked that about the dare I say "TA" Techne's. My son went thru 3 pair and I mean we are talking the bone crushing sports playing dingbat kind :smirk: I mean I can't tell you how many times his mum washed his pants with those still in them and every time wham right back in service without a hitch of course I don't know many things that could survive a mid-teens from pants pocket for any real given period of time anyway but all three pair put up the good fight. Did not know Slater back in those days had I he would have gotten them for cable mods for sure:grin: The 022's build is questionable compared to the 232 but for the price and materials made of they sound sweet:thumbsup:

How’s the dynamics and driving power of the V1 and little DAC/Amp?
IMO, not bad. can compete to mid tier DAP for dynamic.
Driving power wise still manageable & decent ( to drive Zen 2.0) at least better then driving direct to Smartphone, but V1 battery will run out fast... around 3 hours...
Soundstage not too intimate but not wide enough to compete with mid tier...

Would love to hear that....
Awesome in ears. My favorite that i own. However, wirh my Sony ZX507 i find the 10band eq at hi-res and Sony internals to produce far better audio than the cipher cable. Have you tried to simulate the cipher tuning as close as possible on the R8 before settling on the cipher?

My 4.4mm cable arrived today from Kbear and has made a massive difference with the E5000, very impressed and love rekindled. Probably picky of me but I'd prefer if the connector housing was metal, plastic feels/looks cheap... I'll be seeking out another because of that.

The Hidizs is a nice carbon fibre style finish, much prefer that. Anyway, that's about as stressful as my day has been, the joy of taking time off work!

Erlkonig + Norne S4 + 1Z


Probably miles out of reach for an old farm boy like me but do you have a link to that cable?
