Thought I'd open a thread to talk about general gear discussions, shows and event and latest audio news.

Go!

No lah, buy n sell waste money, I should be a good one, can used for longer and at least few years.

RHA T20 sound is beautiful, but just 2 coil dynamics meant only produces 2 layers, bass & treble without mids, I like voices more more bassy.

So my REMAX S1 can deliver better balanced at all

But dunno why ppls still prefer Noble K10 smile.gif

Honest face. I just called my relationship manager and am buying Remax shares right now.

Realistically, it's not in everyone's reach. As you know, people tend to go on a walkabout in midfi purgatory, instead of focusing on a single high end item. But yes, I find some high end gear remarkable in comparison, and a few even seem worth the cash.

Superfi (ala the Orpheus) is fun to try, but will never be an option for 99% of the us. I appreciate their existence, as a proof of concept, and future source of trickle down technology for mere mortals biggrin.gif

As you can see. He made no mention of the price. But rather stated that he is more impressed with midfi products as opposed to hi end gear.

And I quote:
"always impressed more on midfi than what superfi / master race is capable of"

No mention of price. It only states that he is more impressed with midfi equipment and that midfi equipment is more capable than high end equipment. Which to me, isn't true. While it holds true that more expensive doesn't equal better. But high end equipment is more often than not, impressive. That is if you're not paying for the diamond dust that comes with it and paying more for the engineering of a product. But then, since he product already has a premium price because of its engineering; they would often use more premium materials and better craftsmanship etc.

But simply stating that midfi products are more capable than high end products... That's a very long shot.

Yes. I get what you're saying. And what you said is perfectly fine. My issue is what he said that midfi equipment is more capable and impressive than high end gear.

Superb midfi gear can be considered punching above their weight class, rarely do you get exceptional value for high end gear, that's something to consider too, no? I consider my TH-X00 very special, and plan to hold on to it, even when I look to an endgame setup, for example. The key part of his statement is probably the "if done right" part, and I tend to agree.
*
Yes. That's price to performance ratio and that's true and right what you said.
But sheer perform wise. Hugh end gear more often than not is better. And the fact that he made no mention of price and said that midfi is more capable and impressive. That is what got me. In as much as some of us, myself included may be included to think that the more expensive the better it sounds. The same may hold true the other way around too. We need to stop listening with our wallets. If it's good it's good. If its bad it's bad. Price is another issue.
Whether it's worth it or not is another matter.

Chill bro, different points of view are perfectly valid in different circumstances. And as I always believe, listen with your ears, choose based on your budget. No need to take a hobby so seriously eh? biggrin.gif

Hahahaha. That statement really got me man. Haha. All good. I saw your items for sale. Going for the Stax009? Are they releasing a new flagship soon?

But the number of drivers do not indicate or predict sound signature or quality. My JH13 has 6BA drivers too but I can bet you it sounds radically different from the W60. Layla has 12 drivers but I much prefer the JH13.

Should let your ears be the judge and not worry too much about driver count.
