I miss the Leck UHA-6S MKII. Intense portable amp research of the latest and greatest hasn't convinced me there's something better, atp. Apr 14, 2017

        Nick says they actually have some, even though they're not listed on the site. I've been toying w another Leck or the Pico Power. I do wish the Leck used a different dac, but it's not bad.

        After giving Neco feedback on the V5 he said he's going to make some small changes, and if he has time may do some testing to make other opamps available. He'll probably need some prodding though. The V5 seemed pretty great at the time, aside from the veil/overly-smooth sound.

        Not exactly the smallest "portable" amp, but I highly recommend the Mass Kobo 404. It's even powerful enough to drive full size headphones like the abyss with authority, the only gripe is that you need 6 AA batteries to operate it haha.

        UE4 is awesome. It's my favourite monitor <$750. It's a mini UERM. Less resolving but more forgiving.

        Yep, UE4 is on my short list.. as is the UERR, JH13v2. Jomo Audio's neutral offerings are intriguing, as well. Wish that Hidition was easier to deal with for stateside folks.. and that they had something (new) sub-$800 that caught my fancy.

        I highly recommend UE4, especially for the price. Jomo 6R looks good, but expensive. UERR is music with the life taken out of it... It's like drinking soylent.

        DJ Mighty Atom (of DMC fame) put together an absolutely BADASS Endtroducing-themed mix for Solid Steel (and anyone who knows Ninja Tune/DJ Food/Solid Steel knows they don't fuck around when it comes to mixing.. this mix is no different.

        I'll link to a couple of my favorite Endtroducing-samples mixes in the hip hop thread.. but this one here from Atom got the famed back to back replay tonight. It's that good.

      Elear in the hizzouse! Initial impressions.. I'm liking it. Very HD650-ish. Dat headband pressure,though.. man, not optimal, atm.

        The headband and especially the metal gimbal/holk/extender parts that connect to the cups are very malleable. You can actually screw things up if you fiddle with it too much. :)

      Question, do you still have the Corda PC-Step and can you recommend it?

        Haven't had it for quite some time.. but I remember enjoying it quite a bit.. slightly warm, eminently smooth, dynamic, and quite resolving. Great value for the money. Loved the QuickStep even more, though.

      Really enjoying the EE Spartan custom IEM I've had for a little bit. Outside the UERM, it may possess my favorite tonal profile to date.

        Trying to think of how I'd describe the sound quality/tuning in relative terms.. slightly warmer UERM (i.e. off a neutral, 1-2 ohm OI amp) + a smoother, more holographic-sounding Ety ER4SR? Yep.. kinda like that. I can't speak for the universal version of the Spartan.. but this custom version I have is checking all the boxes for me.

        Pretty sure this will be my last custom IEM for a while. Been on that merry-go-round for a while and this guy performs in line with my priorities. Will go grab a uni IEM next.. maybe something less reference/more fun.. Series 5S, I'm looking at you.

        Oops, ignore my PM! I didn't see you had posted these impressions when I sent it. I'm going to lend you my universal Spartans in a month or two, I want to hear your thoughts on the differences between the custom and the universal.
