    I reckon yinyoo is banned and you should edit out any reference to it.

    I ordered the KK cable and the Sony flip case and the Miter box.

    Correct me if im wrong, the KK cable you purchased from amazon is not the same one as Sony Kimber Kable, you do know this.

    I realize that it is NOT the same quality as the Kimber, but it is a functional, balanced cable. I may indeed grab a $200.00 to $300.00 cable down the road, but I just want to try the balanced function for now.

    Either way cheap or not, you should get a boost in SQ. you may even get a alternative cable from aliexpress.

    Been using the ZX300 + Andro recently and I'm at ~65 volume high gain on SE usually, would be nice to have more headroom on volume. Perhaps it is time to try a 4.4 cable.

    I use andro with KK on balanced and volume is massive! But it is also uncapped. My Akg5005 need about 50% more volume compared to andro

    I use the sony EX600 and EX1000 on my ZX300 in balanced mode, both require more power, about 80-85 in low gain. Whiles using the BD Xelento, it does not require you to turn up the volume in balanced mode, about 65-70 will do.

    For me low gain to save battery.

    IT04 is just newly launched so I doubt anyone has it (apart from reviewers) yet.

    Those earbuds that you call emx500, look like Sennheiser MX500. I have some pairs too. I recently bought the ZX300 too.

    The one I'm referring to is called EMX500 (or EMX500s for silver cable) on aliexpress. I guess your Sennheiser is the original, but they don't have the driver in common - the mx500 shell has become the most popular for earbuds these years. The EMX is the most popular earbud ("value for money") for the last couple of years, and on the EA facebook group I just saw Charles write a long story about the history of the EMX500 (and its only 2 years old! :) ) If interested either search the earbuds thread, search the EA group or just buy the EMX500s with black shells, its really a no-brainer at around 10$ if you like a bit U-shaped signature with the most excellent subbass available in an earbud, and a huge soundstage.

    Edit: sorry, I believe you need the EMX500 and a 4.4mm jack, because the EMX500s only have 3 wires going down to the jack (I know because I just found out after cutting the cable this weekend :wink: But the EMX500 has all 4 wires)

    Picked up my DAP today. It's smaller than I imagined. Of course it is MUCH larger than my A17.

    Looking forward to getting into this.

    The A series was tiny, but I feel the ZX300 is a good size for the increase in benefits. Even if the WM models were priced the same I wouldn't want to have a DAP that size and weight.
