Haha, recently I sold my AK100II, now just using Note 5 + my SE846 for daily outstation use

Meanwhile I continue to try <RM3k DAPs, may be eventually buy Sony PCM-D100 or Onkyo DP-X1 or any new player with good price and good sound cool.gif

BTW, no more AK player liao bye.gif

Definitely do consider DP-X1 as it's is really light, and the sound is amazing! DX80 is smooth. Both are portable.
*
DX80, nope, I have to admit it is good sound at its price but UI just dont suit me, so skipped~

AK I skip in general tongue.gif Just helping out any here who'd be interested. One correction, apparently it's open box, so the cheapest new is still Massdrop, at $1719
*
AK240 is a bit of outdated, now everyone is talking on AK380 and AK320.

But the price of AK is a high sky to me bangwall.gif

If I see any deals on the 3xx players, I'll be sure to share it as well. For me they're totally not worth the cash, but I know lots of people are interested, at least can help save some cash biggrin.gif

Btw, just got my Hugo earlier today  tongue.gif
*
huiyo!! Chord Hugo!! thumbup.gif

I still remember my first impression of connecting Hugo with my HD600, the amount of details it bring to me, made me almost want to buy it.

BTW, you plan to use Hugo to connect to your IEM?

Both, yes. It's semi-portable, so eventually will be taking it with me when I travel as well (as opposed to ultra portable, can just stick it in my pocket whenever I leave the house). Having fun with it so far, don't think I'll regret it at all.

Just waiting for the line out cable I ordered for my DAP to finally arrive, so in the meantime it will be sitting at home together with my full-sized headphones.

What DAP you use? currently I am hunting for DAP after sold my AK100II icon_question.gif

If I was in the market today, probably would go with the Onkyo DP-X1 (since I already have Hugo), but I've been using my Sony ZX2 for over a year now and still love it. The Opus#1 also is not bad, but not full Android.
*
ZX2 is good, but I seem to have problem when plugging in microsd card with E1 personal demo unit, not sure you have that problem or not.

I may give a try of Opus#1, but when surfing their webpage, they seem to have more product coming soon, which mainly using sabre ES9018k2M and ES9018 DAC

There are quite a lot of comments from both good and bad sides regarding Onlyo DP-X1, but I still need to listen to it before I place PO.

seems like you're really on a roll. Keep spending like a king thumbsup.gif

Btw, don't think there ever is a "best" IEM. And almost all IEM that I've known to be flagship level in 2014 have replacements or better alternatives. And I believe there will going to be even better IEMs later.

I am waiting for the Beyerdynamics version of T8ie, if Beyer wants to make it

Oh it is haha. Biggest I've ever had. Seal ain't a problem, comfort isn't too bad either, but when you forget about it and lie on your side, habis. So lesson learnt, anything larger than 4 drivers, consider customs.
*
Ya lo, few JH universals I tried need to be plugged inside my ear deeply due to their longer nozzle.....really uncomfortable

That is why I am quite impressed with SE846 as how they manage the small size housing with 4 drivers inside.

But the down side of se846 is easily affected by type of eartips and cables

Nice ah? At Canjam I listened to the Oriolus, then Dita Truth, then T8ie. Sounds balanced but lacked air. But then these are all 10-minute impressions.
*
I dont know yet, no news from Beyer yet.
Oriolus is quite amazing, female vocals impressed me most.
I am no friend of DIta, haha.
AKT8ie, hmmm, hard to explain, it is suitable for classical, instrument and OST, but for pops songs, it is not as good as SE846. If you have listened few Beyer cans before, you will find that it is not the typical Beyer sound, that is my opinion. smile.gif

QUOTE(echineko @ Mar 8 2016, 11:03 AM)
Hopefully it will be better, the current version wasn't that remarkable to me.
*
People may see it as replacement to IE800 or K3003

But both above IEMs I havent listened before sad.gif

I take it you didn't make it to Canjam? But those two aren't too rare, audio stores should have them in stock. Anyone seen the AKT8IE for sale in Malaysia yet?
*
Nope, I dont go to CanJam. For AKT8ie, you can buy through E1 uncle

I am eager to try W60, IE800 and K3003 smile.gif

2-3 years ago it was just the SE846, IE800 and K3003 as TOTL universals.

See how fast this segment is growing.

Yup, these 3 units. Now is the world of chaos

QUOTE(echineko @ Mar 8 2016, 11:30 AM)
Nah, just wondering if it's in the market, that's all. I'm happy with my K10 for now, don't think I'm missing anything in a similar price range.

And you should try to be there next year, the best part is being able to compare everything you've been curious about in a very short space of time. Day 1 was my general audition, Day 2 I was refining my shortlist to decide what's actually worth the money biggrin.gif
*
Lets see any KLIAV show for this year, I went there last year.

I am eager to see you unbox Stax Sr009/002 or Sennheiser Orpheus or KSE1500 brows.gif

Haha, please do so, and bring to public transport friendly audio stores (E1@ Sungei Wang or Jaben@NuSentral) to let us try rclxms.gif

BTW, have you tried the new portable amplifier from SHure at Canjam?
