        Ideally that will be plan once I get serious about putting together a 2 channel system. Hard part will be patience while tracking down the right pair! But was just curious about 580's... see them pop up from time to time in this price range.

        The trouble with turntables (not their fault!) is that people buy them to tinker with, rather than just to listen to.

        Based upon certain threads here, apparently that's also true of headphones, IEMs, amps, DACs, and CD players.

        So…tinkerers will tinker?

        Funny story. In July went to a concert with a few friends. I had my ear plugs and brought an extra set. I asked my friends if they wanted the extra and they declined. First set goes on and one friend asked to use them.

        After the concert the unprotected friend said his ears were ringing for hours afterwards.

        I know I’m a biased fanboy, but I do like Martin Axenrot as well. His drumming is less overtly showy or complex than some, nor does Opeths stuff usually call for anything absurd, but he has a lot of subtle depth to his playing.

        Saw Animals As Leaders live. That drummer has a small drum kit but when he stops jazzing it up it is hard to believe. When a drummer can make a small drum kit sound like a thunder storm like that, I listen.

        I had the previous gen X5 3rd Gen. Warmer sound, does a lot of things but master of none. Buggy software, which is nothing new with Chi-Fi. I would bet a Chinese region ZX300 will blow the M11 out of the water.

        It's like this, do you want more features like streaming, youtube, video games which you can play on the M11? Or you just want a pure DAP?

        I would like the ability to cache albums from Tidal as I've gotten accustomed to that on my phone, but the sound quality of a zx2/zx300 is probably quite a bit better. Have some time to think on it between now and when the JVC HA-FDX1 is dropped and shipped. Plan on that being my mobile/work system. Thanks for the info!

      Thoughts on Theta Miles CD Player for use as a transport with GungnirMB? Considering buying one, been wanting a spinner...

        @k4rstar Of those newer models you listed, will the marantz or cambridge significantly outperform the Onkyo as transports only? Asking since the price difference is significant.

        Never compared them directly so couldn’t really say. They all use the same Sanyo mechanism found in most modern CD players. However the Cambridge is designed with a singular function in mind which is to act as a transport and has their own servo tech found in their top of the line player. It’s probably the best on transport duty.

        FWIW famish99 has it hooked up to Gungnir Multibit A1/Aficionado and I thought it sounded great, but I have no frame of reference, since I have not heard Af hooked up to any other transport.

        If you're trying to inject a little speed and athleticism into the setup, look elsewhere; the LP is even more laid-back than the Lyr 3. That being said, I think the LP has superior timbre and stage.

        Gungnir Multibit + Lyr3 (sylvania) + Clears is an addictive combo still for me. ZDT Jr. is great as well but with Clears i feel there is a bit of a bass boost (guessing it's caused by OI even on low output). Depending on mood and what I'm listening to I feel both of these amps fit into my system well. Would still absolutely LOVE to hear a DSHA-3F before saving up to buy one, but thinking that's where I'm headed.

        It has been done. The UK Trading Standards folks prosecuted a cable company for unsubstantiated claims. But afterwards, they probably went on selling the same thing with different words.
