Are any folks here IEM fiends? I've found myself increasingly into them while I'm on the go / working in mobile spaces. I got a fairly basic mobile rig, which is not currently Schitty. Roon ARC on iPhone / Fiio Q3 / Moondrop Kato or 7Hz Timeless. Makes me quite happy when not on my home rig. I'm just scratching the surface of what can be achieved obviously, but most of my listening is Gumby / Mjolnir 2 / HD6xx so I'm trying to get something better while on the go. Interested to hear if others who have home listening tastes like mine have chased this particular path as well.
I have been using IEMs for several years, but lately I've been using my "full size" head phones. I use mine with DAPs, even when I'm home. For me the purpose of IEMs is portable sound, so when I travel I carry a pair of IEMs and a DAP. @Jason Stoddard has told me, "no Schiit DAP" a couple of times. He's surprisingly resistant to begging.

If Jason decided to retire tomorrow, I'd be fine with that.
Retire before Gadget ships?

But will we ever get a phone powered or integrated battery piece of Schiit, @Jason Stoddard ? I feel like I could do better every time I turn on my Fiio Q3…

The album on Qobuz that has more tracks than you listed. Thanks for the recommendation! Perfect for the season.
The search on these services is so INSANE!!!! Witches' Brew New Symphony Orchestra of London does NOT bring this album to the top! But new orchestra of london alexander gibson does! I am not a programmer, but is it really THAT hard?

May I remind you of what country Qobuz comes from?
Oui, merci, I'll see myself out...

Oooh !! ... that's harsh !! :scream:
What is the difference between heaven and hell?


In heaven, the English are the police, the French are the cooks and the Germans are the engineers.

In hell, the Germans are the police, the English are the cooks, and the French are the engineers.

Let's see…
- (descendants of) the English ARE considered by many to be the (world-)police
- the Gauls ARE considered by many to be les cuisiniers
- ze Tshermäns ARE considered by many to be die Ingenieure

As such it follows: We must be in heaven.

*switches on Mjolnir and puts on headphones*

Yep! Despite everything, we are indeed… 🎶:)🎵
