    The low end on the F9 pro's is pretty tight. Being a bit hot does not bother me as i have bad ears:)
    I'm interested if the FH5 are the best of both.

    I’m wondering about the fit you had on the F9 Pro. I found that I needed to switch to smaller tips to get the bass response I wanted. The tips that came fitted out of the box yielded a sound signature like the one you describe.

    I’ll check them out at some point as the iem I have from a few yes ago are ok but that’s it & just bug my ears after a fairly shortvtime so they’re put away.
    Butmight be a good idea to pick up a good pair on sale jik for travel as I surely wouldn’t be carrying my experience over ear:) as I’d likely be able to get them for a really good price when being cleared out.
    Although I have really good ears:wink: but my hearing isn’t 100% anymore:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:so I could probably live with a bit of this n that’!

    I’ll check with my friend & see if they’re getting the FH5 & see what they’re all about.

    I hope they’re what you expect & fill your need, let me know how it goes...

    Just to clarify in case you all thought he must be mad.

    I appreciate the SP1000 as a beautifully made flagship device that sounds amazing, with its twin state of the art dacs and stunning screen etc etc. The sound is stunning.

    I think what I’m trying to say is that the R3 really took me by surprise. I only really bought it for a much cheaper travel companion in both size and cost. However the R3 has really grabbed my attention with its sound. Even selecting a DSD track from a flac is pretty seamless and the DSD plays almost instantly whereas on the SP1000 there is quite a delay when selecting a DSD to the point of missing first second of the track. A small thing I know, but noticeable.

    Anyway, I’m trying Tubular Bells in DSD this evening on the R3, let’s see how the little guy gets on. Could be synergy with the IEM’s, could be my old ears either way it sounds great and think you are going to be impressed.

    Never for 1 sec did I think he was

    Never for 1 second did I think he was crazy or mad to use his terminology!

    But I did think he’s got a very generous allowance to work with.! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    After TB which is pretty awesome for sure, take a listen to Tangerine Dream’s soundtrack from the Friedkin’s other movie, from ‘77 one of my favourite movies & fave Friedkin movie, SORCERER:japanese_ogre: it’s called ‘Betrayal’ Sorcerer Theme, it’s pretty awesome as well, pretty hypnotic.!
    It’s really exceptional esp if you’ve watched the movie & where it’s slotted into the storyline, really sets the stage & amps up the tension.!
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076740/

    Love that move, much better than the original French version imho esp since with the exception of Roy Scheider [whobis excellent in this role as are all the other main combatants.!.] all the other actors are European or foreign so virtually unknown when the movie was cast & made sobit reLly gives it a more authentic realistic & grittier deal to it.!
    Check it out fiction haven’t seen it & if possible best to watch on a large screen in a darkened room with a good ht speaker system or :) preferably & volume up , maybe a craft :beers:beer or two just for special effects:skull:

    Enjoy!

    Here’s a link to the yt TD Sorcerer video, will give you an idea the ride your in for so to speak.!




    Oh by the way, you mentioned listening to The Beatles DSD/Flac I think you said, yes?

    Well if you got it, if not dl it ‘HEY BULLDOG’ in my Top 10 Beatles songs likely Top 5 & here’s the Official Beatles Promo Vid for it after all footage of the recording was thought lost, there’s a really good story about that on yt as well if you’re interested pretty fascinating stuff actually.!

    Thanks Fridge,

    I will certainly check the links out, always interested, thank you.

    Trust me, budget on the SP was hard to pull together, still paying, I’m not allowed to spend big sums on the hobby anymore!

    Time to kick back with a beer as you say and enjoy these gizmos for the music, not for next new thing - too damaging to wallet.

    YW, I think you’ll enjoy from your music taste you’ve mentioned.

    Yes I know exactly what you mean, although it sounds as if you have other family considerations which are in reality always more important so that’s understandable.

    Myself I don’t anymore & I can go stupid & often do with my finite allowance & sometimes regret my impulses.

    Yes it sounds like the SP is awesome & likely we’ll worth the big$ as I’ve heard, so I’m glad you can enjoy as you’ll definitely get your $’s worth by the sounds of it.!

    What :) are you using missed or forgot already:astonished:

    Really does sound like you got the set up to go all night with either the SP or your new R3, congrats on a tasteful bit of kit.!

    Enjoy, the CB:beers: as well...

    Really good to hear this. I'm looking for autonomy for my Andromeda and Focal. Right now, for me to listen to my headphones to the fullest, I need to be tethered to my desk and desktop amp. Look forward to receiving it, but the quality of the amp in this dap doesn't excuse Hiby's shipping incompetence. It's still frustrating to see people with backer # 13xx and 16xx having fun with theirs for at least a week and then read about backers < 100 with no updates or even worst, early backers in Hong Kong not seeing any movement. I really think Hiby shipped these out at random with no rational logic behind the strategy. Once the players are in our hands, the anger will start to subside, but Hiby really tarnished trusts within the indiegogo/kickstarter campaign world. In the past, when creators takes months or even years to finally ship, I never backed any of their subsequent campaigns.

    Anyway, thanks for the comments. I was strongly considering the new A&K SE100 Futura, but after your comments, I'll now wait to evaluate the R3 before throwing good money out the door.

    Absolutely, couldn’t agree with you more as it’s taken on Tesla proportions [& I don’t mean the Nikola ones.!]

    Unconscionable.!

    As someone who used to own high end DAPs, e.g. AK100, AK240, ZX2... just enjoy whatever DAP you are using even if it costs below $200. Once you've outgrown hype-fi you'll realize the difference between most well implemented DAPs are very minimal to negligible regardless of the retarded pricing you see nowadays.

    If you have good ears then I would suggest you go for the FH1. The F9 Pro's a lot of people think it too hot. The FH1 have a really smooth deep bass but for me can overwhelm the upper end.
    My ears are shot so the shrill people mention on the pro's I dont hear. I would prefer a bit more bass on the pro's but the clarity for me is what keeps me using them.

    Thats why I'm thinking that maybe the FH5 may give me what I want.

    Thx, will see if there’s stock, as it’s not a big priority for me atm will keep my eyes open for sales or clearance prices on quality ones that aren’t selling for whatever reason.

    I think I remember the F5 & F9’s were being cleared out if I’m not mistaken even the F9Pro, will have to check, the 1 More Triple as well as whole back but will keep a look out!

    Hope they work for you!

    Got a treat for you.

    Do you/have you watched ‘Endeavour’ the young Morse before he became Insp Morse?

    Well if you haven’t watch this episode
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5433634/ & I think near the early part of the show he’s in a beautiful church/cathedral like performance theatre or something [been a while since I’ve seen it some time last year]
    But he’s listening to a performance of Eric Satie’s Gnossienne No.1 on an French glass instrument like a glass tubular harpsichord or something played by a group called the Hope Ensemble.!

    The effect in the that performance as Endeavour listens to it is quite stunning, best if you can watch the episode just for the effect.

    But here’s the link in yt & I’m sure you’ll appreciate it with your iem of choice esp if you can dl the track into your R3, simply stunningly beautiful music of course no matter what instrument it’s pkayed on but on this glass performance almost sounds like a theramin, transcendent...

    Enjoy.!



    Here’s the groups webpage to order the album.
