Re: Fiio X5 Gen3 verses iBasso DX80

I found the IBasso DX80 to have exceptional audio once you get a version of the firmware thats not bugged. There also seems to be a bit of an issue with the large SD card I am using as it just randomly resets at some stages. The DAC mode also sounds very good, if you can get it to work... Pros: Grea...

Re: Beyerdynamic T1 + Xonar STX upgrade?

Sorry I've been in an overtime work void for a year. Stage dac + T33H. The MS1s sound good off most things but the external amp boosted the liveliness.

Re: Audio Cables, do they make a difference

I could never work out the difference between the standard LCD-3 cables and the custom ones I ordered that were made with wire recovered from a Russian submarine. The custom ones look better and have better marketing?

Re: Beyerdynamic T1 + Xonar STX upgrade?

Going from Xonar STX to external dac amp, I had a good jump in quality for my MS-1s but not much difference for my ATH-A900s.

Re: CD or a digital download?

Ripped almost all the CDs with exact audio copy and sold/gave away most of them. A library wanted some of the early CDs to see how they have stood up in normal conditions, or rather failed to do so. They wanted the late 80s/early 90s first press sony cds that had read errors out the wazoo. They didn...

Re: DX-90 Review (repost)

Since 2015 when I did the review above from memory (eep), I really love this combo. I changed the triflange tips on the S-EM6s to comply narrow foam tips and this improved the performance in non critical listening situations eg public transport. The combo is very clear, fantastic instrument separati...

DX-90 Review (repost)

I bought the DX90 equiped with dual Sabre '32bit' dacs, this is an initial impression that I will update later. Hardware: -Dual Sabre '32bit' dacs, if implemented properly are the equivalent of an 8-bit Delta-sigma dac output. Most older popular choices like the WM8740, are 24bit processing/6bit out...

Re: LCD-3 Long Review

I've finally gotten around to getting the LCD-3r3s? out of the box. -Seems more difficult to drive, on some songs mids sound recessed. People were running them on deathstar amps that were overvolting, as well as other extremely expensive highend amps so they made the LCD-3s less efficient with doubl...

Re: LCD-3 Long Review

Hmmm got my LCD-3s back and thought they were LCD-2s but the darker look but aparently they are newer LCD-3F. Interesting. They sound different. No clue if they are better though. Hmmm maybe a wider soundstage. EDIT: Oh it wasn't my imagination that I had to turn the amp up more than before they rai...

Re: LCD-3 Long Review

Pretty good, I need a memory card for it though. Maybe I'll get a 128gb memory card, HD flacs are huge.

I wrote an initial review but I can't post it.

Re: What have you just bought?

Interesting graphics choice, why not wait for 980? The 295x2 is 50-100% faster than the 980. I'd have to have waited for the 980ti. As its a microatx build I wanted a single card solution. The titan Z was crapola. The 980 is super energy efficient whereas the 295x2 has efficient cooling (which is u...
