    How does the es100 compare to fiio q1 mk2? Thank you.
  2. Mouseman
    Sound quality and power of the Es100 is considerably better, and when you add in the software, it's no contest. Since I got my ES100, I have packed the Q1 away.

    On sale in Amazon.

    Congrats on the purchase! :)
    I bought another one right now, with the 15% off. Hoping this one will not have the charging issue as with my current one.

    In the US, we would say "On sale on Amazon". Maybe different in India or UK.
    However don't worry, if you use any of the 4 combinations of "in" and "on", people will still understand what you mean. :beyersmile:

    Is there any difference between getting a real balanced 2.5 cable or using a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter ?
  8. rkw
    On second thought, the most common phrase in the US would be "On sale at Amazon".
    "on Amazon" is okay but "in Amazon" would be unusual here.

    An adapter with balanced 2.5mm male plug to single-ended 3.5mm female socket? Or is it a balanced 2.5mm male plug to balanced 3.5mm female socket?

    That later is fine to use as everything is still balanced wired regardless of what plug it is. The formal is however not as the singled-ended connection will short circuit the balanced amp inside the ES100. At best it will cause distortion, at worst it might damage the circuit permanently.

    Really depends on which part of the world you are in :grin:

    Is the ES100 considered a warm or analytical dac?
  12. Mouseman
    I would consider it slightly warm with no EQ and no MSEB, but the great thing is that you can use either or both, so you can tailor the sound however you want. I don't use EQ on it, but I do use the MSEB. I enjoy the results, and it helps me tweak things to sound how I like.

    I have no idea what MSEB is?

    Hey you were at the ex1k thread as well! Hmm i used to buy into the myth that dac chips have sound sigs. I have burr browns, akm & ess. Hate to tell you that they dont and they aren't supposed to contrary to popular belief. Dac chips are just a component in the signal chain, have their specified function, and are not the final determinant in output sound sig. Of course I'm not an amp designer and my comments are highly disputable.

    Paired them with ex600 and mdr-1r, sounds not too far off from my lg v20. Of course, ymmv

    Sorry, I'm thinking of my R3. The ES100 has several buttons for presets and a really nice EQ section that you can manipulate in the app, and the settings stick with other sources you connect to.
