eh! can meh? Mind sharing the cost? feel like changing mine to a universal variant
W500 to W900 upgrade is 1k on the dot for pre-order special. But sound is damn swee. Very different signature from W500 though, so you better try before you jump ship.

Yup, I read the sound glossary at least 5 times already, still reading repeatedly hopefully I'll be able to memorize all the term
Thanks anyway! Appreciate it!

But head fi cannot be trusted sometimes. Some reviews are so good that they can make budget IEM can outperform a TOTL.
That I truly agree. But I still feel. Hearing for yourself is the best.

Bought 2nd hand from a fellow audio lover. Price for a new one shipped from Japan is about $400, got this for $280.

Right now, I seem to be leaning more towards used goods now for the better price haha.

IMHO, this is only the beginning. There's more stuff that you can do to improve this DAC/AMP's sound quality, especially on your source/transport. Audio-gd DACs works best with I2S input(Think Singxer SU-1 or Audio-gd DI-U8).

Also this Dac can benefit from cleaner and stronger power and additional internal tweaks(e.g. removing ribbon cables/power of unused inputs).

You should also experiment with Software based Upsampling for this NOS DAC and optimising your PC's latency peformance for better audio quality.

Thoughts on these.

Criteria
- Stylish
- Headphone not IEM
- Portable ( used for commuting )
- Combo with my Pioneer DAP

Looking at
- Audeze Sine
- Oppo PM3
- Beyer T51p
