I have a question, if you do not mind answering. I have a Starsea on order. What switch positions do you recommend on the Starsea for classical?
I use the "balanced" setting. It works very well for classical music and also ambient/electronic.

uhmmm still no impression on Starshine
Soon....it is all written up and ready to upload and has been for a couple of days.

I am told by the Head-Fi administrators that there was a bug, which made setting up the product page impossible, they said they will sort it out....I will keep trying.

Listening to the i3 via Topping NX1a and CD player, at robust volume. Soundstage is magnificent and tonality beautiful on this piece:

The light is spectacular, changeable, and mysterious.
Could you use one sentence to describe this attractive scene?

A moment, mountains and sky meet, joyously, my porridge burns on the stove, sadly.

Spent some time with the TRI I-3 and the FiiO BTR5. They do indeed go really well together. The BTR5 makes the I-3 sound as good as my Shanling M6. Which is high praise.

Two celestial whales peacefully glide above the frozen mountains and pass over my awestruck self.

Aren't EJ and Starlight both clones of ST7?
I have the EJ07 and the Starlight and I can tell you they are tuned differently. I believe they do share the same driver configuration as the ST7 but don't assume they sound the same. I was kind of put off initially by the amount of treble detail of the Starlight but with some break-in and some slight EQ adjustments it has proven to be damn good. The EJ07 is also a great set that I enjoyed from the beginning (although I bought it second hand).
