Have you heard the Fiio FH7? Is it better than that?
Do you mean the Z3 Pro, that one has the AK4493 DAC chip I believe.
Yes, I just amended my post
I've never once accidentally shot the volume up on my R3 and I've been using the hell out of it. Of course now that I say that, I'll inevitably end up doing it, lol.
Yeah, that was one thing that threw me off as well. I stayed away from the purple filters for my Icarus III and Masters because of the description of reduced bass, and I don't reduce bass, lol. When I put the purple on the R1, the bass stayed nice and deep but the mids and highs saw a nice improvement.
It certainly looks interesting at < $50 for the pro version.
It might be that he just wanted something smaller than the DSD Pro, I don't really know why he swapped.
I don't care about frills. I have a couple of DAPs that do have android and I just use them in pure music mode. I only want to play albums from my sd card. I do need gapless play for certain albums so I cannot use the Zishan DSD for those... but, I do have other daps for them. If you meant the display, it is gives enough information and is easy and quick to navigate. When I am listening to the music it is off anyway.
I do care about looks! I like how it looks.
Because it had to be done :
a cup of tea?
maybe some high mountain taiwan oolong
Scottish Breakfast for me at the moment.
If you pick one up for what I did then honestly it's a no brainer... It's basic infact probably the most basic player I have used since I left school lol, ok maybe not quite that long, honestly it sounds great though and I particularly think it would go well with those that prefer darker sounding iems as it will smooth out the edges a little, although even with my preferred sig it's not realy crossed the line of harshness... Please don't take this as a negative as I feel this realy is its strength too its just got that raw sound which sounds quite natural.
Also this DAP is very poweful indeed I'm hardly using its power and I have no idea how many steps on the volume but the most I have gone too is 28 lol, it's quirky and the function is a bit out there, build is a box with a screen... Still love it though.
I'm not bothered either it's sound more than makes up for any quirks... If I had to choose between this and the Fiio m11 for audio I honestly would choose the zinash dsd pro
I think I read it goes to 30 so you are almost there! I have been around 11-14 for most iems or buds. I did go to 18 with a 300 ohm bud. Have not tried my 400 or 600 ohm earbuds yet. I plan to try my NH balanced with it soon.
