    Altmann Tera Player
    Just received the Tera Player tonight!
    Listening with the Flat 4 Kaede, BSV Club in 24/96............this player is something special!
    It is a sound enamating from your Tera Player that uber Audiophiles try for many years to achieve in their home systems.
    Great ears!
    Gavin Chiu, Tralucent Audio
    The sound quality of your Tera Player is very qood, the clarity and detail superb.
    I also have HM801 and Colorfull Colorfly C4, so I can compare your Tera and other player.
    I have several headphone like HD800, T1, LCD2, but mainly I using Beyer T5p, for IEM, I using AKG K3003 and Shure 535 LE.
    If you are impatient to know what is my first overall impassion, here it is: Tera-Player is the Holy Grail of DAPs.
    But back to the course of events.
    I briefly tied the player with beyerdynamic Tesla T5P and - even shorter - with Sennheiser HD600 yesterday late at night, and just now - with Sennheiser HD 25 Adidas (but between HD 600 and HD 25 I replaced most compositions on the card).
    Apparently it accentuates the strengths of each of the phones, - keeping the weaknesses bearable.
    T5P was just amazing with Glenn Gould's piano recording and fine with the rest, HD 600 was fine with everything (lively, well paced, although 'compact' soundstage), and HD 25 had more PRaT than ever. On some compositions which employ early stereo tricks I could actually 'feel' where and how is placed the driver of T5P, - but that disappeared once the stereo mix was more natural.
    With best regards
    Thank you and well done!  My Tera is just so musical.
    The AK240 I own is excellent but, when I want to listen to music close to the original, I now always go to my Tera.
    With all the best,

    Hi Charles,
    I'm thinking that you are God !
    I had challenged for the best sound quality, for example AK120, AK240, AK380, and many many portable amps, batteries, but these weren't satisfied with my ears !
    And, Always I backed your Tera, Tera is the best sound portable player !
    Therefore ,I can't wait for the latest Tera Stealth.
    You are exactly the best sounding God in the world .
    Thanks God !
    Best Regards Tsutomu

    My Quote was:  I think we should run you as Rickey Mei and have DAT ASS as your Vice President, maybe Haku's Ass???

    So have any of you guys tried this thing:
    Curious about the 20 Triode amplification[​IMG] Seems pretty expensive!

    So you didn't hear HUM Pristine yet?  I got an impression you did already since you were replying with an authority [​IMG]
    Based off Vince's measurement and description of Aria sound, I assume it has a smooth warm full body sound.
    If you want to know how HUM Pristine sounds, I'll give you a clue [​IMG], which should be different from Aria:
    As a disclaimer, I don't have or heard either Aria or Pristine, though I might get a chance to hear Pristine soon.  I only basing my assumption on reading Vince's review and talking to HUM guys.  Just want to be clear with my replies, lots of people reading this thread and I don't want others to be confused what is an assumption based on analyzing the graph versus someone who physically had a/b comparison and can share their first hand experience [​IMG]

  9. HiFiChris Contributor
    Whoa - really, really good my friend and so darn close! One is wrong though. [​IMG] 
    On a side-note, I am thinking of doing a second round, but it would be way too much stuff to take out and back in just for a silly audio quiz photo. [​IMG] 
  10. audio123

    one of them reminds me of Empire Ears iem
  11. HiFiChris Contributor
    Nope, your mistake was not in the IEM list. [​IMG]
  12. audio123

    i did not refer to your list for the UE iems, Lear and Cans bc they r so obvious hehe
  13. HiFiChris Contributor
    Nonetheless you got one of them wrong. Totally wrong by the way. [​IMG] 
    PS: What I meant was not the list on my profile but the list of pictured gear you made. And there lays the mistake which is not in the IEM section. One of the full-sized cans is totally wrong. [​IMG]
