having huge discount for used units, deciding among
1. Hugo 2
2. U18t
3. SP1000

already having an ee legend x custom on its way, wondering if one of the above better compliments.... i hope could afford to keep all of the above, but in reality, i can only choose one...

which is the best to go for?

With in-ear I don't. Over the ear I always get headaches. I suspect it's the weight and also the clamping pressure.

I had/have that problem as well. The only way is to slowly get used to using headphones and start with light clamping ones. And especially avoid on ear types and go for over ear types.

I almost bought the Sony WH-1000XM3. Tested it for like 20 minutes, felt like I could get used to it. But after a long consideration, I still decided to get the WI-1000x neckband one. Don't wanna risk it. xD

Hey guys. Newbie here--just got into turntables lately and I've been doing research on turntables. What are your thoughts on PRO-JECT RM-5.1 SE? I just noticed that in this comparison review: https://turntable.guide/best-audiophile-turntables/, it the most affordable one, and the price tag difference is huge. Like other turntables on the list have 2x more the price of that model. Just wondering. I mean, what could be the huge difference between the PRO-JECT RM-5.1 SE and the other pricier turntables (like $500++). Would adding huge money like that be worth it for a quality turntable? Thanks!

anyone using 64 audio u18t? there are couple of units around my area on universals with pretty good deal... tempting to get a pair

source wise, between SP1000, SP1000m, WM1Z or Hugo 2 which would be better pair.
Do know that among these, Hugo 2 is the cheapest, but would those more expensive DAPs provide a night/day difference or wow factor?

i went for the hugo 2, too bad i had the silver version (always wanted the stealthy black).
but it had saved me more than 50% off the full retail price for a months old used unit.
i can only say hugo 2 really open up the air over my aged dap.

now i am wondering how will the hugo tt2 + m scaler combo lift the bar.
also, cable switching between pure silver and copper really amazed me on the difference who are not a cable-believer.

Not bad actually. 3D surround made the soundstage bigger but I only use it during gaming. Head tracking is fun to use as well but it's a little gimmicky. Haha

Mainly using it for gaming though. Still prefer the sound of my Hifiman HE-400i & Sony Z2M2 for music.

Got it for RM 1.2k... No complain from me. devil.gif

I am running it off the WM-1Z > DHC Symbiote Elite Silver/Linum Super Bax Balanced 4.4 > DHC Ultra short adapter > Hugo 2 > UE Live
The silver cable helps alot and makes the UE Live sound quite a lot more different and better. But that does not mean that the stock (Linum Super Bax) cable is unlistenable to.
Single ended to the Hugo and Balanced through the 1Z, I do not feel that it is muddy.
I actually find the sound enjoyable and one of the only IEMs that I can listen to hours on end without feeling the need to take a break for awhile.
While I am working I sometimes listen to them for three hours straight.

Yes, it may not be the most technically sound or euphoric IEM there but there is just something about it that makes me use it as my daily driver and when I need to be plugged in for long hours.
For something with a total 'wow' and euphoric sound, I would give that to the VE8
And yes, I have 2 units. And before anyone cries 'shill', I am in no way affiliated or compensated by UE and I have always been their paying customer.

wow, u had 2 UE live?
hopefully this year's black friday deal are as good, might pull the trigger on one.. last year it was 30% off if not mistaken.

planning to get sp1000ss, hope it doesnt disappoint.
then would be either pure silver or gold plated silver cable to increase the soundstage
