    If you are using a 12V DC power supply disconnect ASAP!

    CDM uses a 12.6V li-ion charger and NOT a 12V DC power supply. This means the circuitry that controls the charge level of the CDM battery is inside the charger. All Il-ion chargers have a visual charge status indicator. On the CDM charger you will see a led light that is red when charging and green when complete.

    I don't get a noise like that when charging. If I'm plugged into noisy power, I'll get a hum or whine sometimes.

    I would definitely get an official CDM charger.

    I'm super interested in what you think of those Telefunken sub miniatures . They make some of the best tubes ever for recording applications . Were they expensive ?

    No, paid 20 USD, got them from a guy on ebay. He offered match sets. I dont know how they sound I have to get them connected to the pcb. They sure are a great looking pair.

    Hi ,I’m new here.
    Has anyone tried Aeon Flow with CDM? Is it compatible with CDM, both SQ and power?

    Thank you

    I love my CDM and think it's my end game for IEM, I have the Mr Speakers aeon flow closed and they do not sound good on the CDM.

    Really depends on the DAC you feed the CDM with.

    I don't know about that, they don't sound good through a good dac and desktop tube amp. They sound great from schiit Jot, or mojo.

    If the ether flo is any thing like the Audeze lcd series i'm not surprised they don't sound that good powered by the CDM. The cdm does a very poor job of powering bigger "current hungry" phones while conversely doing an amazing job powering IEM's . Not exactly sure why but I suspect it is due to the amp designer targeting more portable head gear maybe with the assumption that the bigger more power hungry cans would probably be powered by desktop amps .

    Thank for that answer. And have you ever compared CDM to Govibe Porta Tube +?

    Which DAC do you recommend for paring with AFC? My DAP is DX200 with amp1.
