Had a listen to KRK Rokit 5 G4. Sounds pretty nice. Hate its very small sweet spot though, and how it crapped the heck out at higher volume. Aug 12, 2020

      JBL 104-BT is quite a good buy for cheap. Pretty amazed with how such small speakers can sound this big. Very strong center image, too.

        @gixxerwimp I have only seen a few mentions from Psalm and zerodeefex about being a tier or two below Vanatoo T0. Spec sheet has zero detail regarding the codecs but I suspect the usual aptx, aac, sbc – no LDAC mention anywhere on the box. I notice there's a few milliseconds delay of sound while using bluetooth as well, which sucks a bit.

        Good example of how far you can take a simple small design when you can properly tune the power to the drivers. My experience with JBL Contol Ones is that they were lifeless lumps and only got close to any respect when you cranked them.

        I bought the non BT for $50 I think a while back. I used them at work and they were pretty decent.

        For $50, I'd take them over most compact monitors and keep the rest of the $$$ for good investments during the recession.

        That's really sad to hear. IIRC mine came in a thick plastic Russian Post plastic bag with Zamp's sturdy packaging on the inside. It definitely looked the worse for wear, but everything was intact. I'm sure you'll get sorted out as quickly as possible.

      Verum 1 (perforated pads) and Corda Classic are bonkers good. Nicely detailed, engaging, zero annoyances - well, maybe Verum's weight.

      Corda Classic sounds like a more refined, less shouty, less bassy Jotunheim. I'm digging this.

        Had the QuickStep back in the day and it remains one of my favorite two or three portable amps (along with the Leckerton). Sneaky powerful and nicely refined, dynamic sound.

        LOL, got me there. I plan to, but might have mentioned the ZDTJ is a friend's on extended loan so I'd feel like an unconsented assfuck if I bought more stuff before I sorted it out.

        (Never mind my ethical obligation to remedy the effects of what seems to be an electrical short is questionable at best— it's what I'd want others to do if I loaned stuff I guess.)

        @Zampotech Swapped the tubes, the crackle remains on the same channel. Should I just bring the amp to the local repair shop?

        Can you give large photos of the tube socket? I want to understand what is the source of the crackling.

        Another point. Are there any sounds in the headphones when the amplifier is turned off?

        @Zampotech Oops, I've just sent the amp to the repair shop. :'( He did a quick check and there seemed to not be any trouble with the socket. He still needs a few days to thoroughly check everything since his repair queue is long.

        There's no crackling sound or anything of the sort when the amp is off.

      Couldn't for the life of me detect any difference sound-wise between ZX300 and ZX507. Maybe I'm just deaf.

        Tested with FDX1 and Andromeda. Tried fudging around with ZX507's app process, couldn't force stop or disable Sound Enhancement process a la ZX2. Worth a try.

        @Ksaurav402 Adding to the equation, minus the USB DAC and bluetooth receiver functions (not sure about the latter).
        That's just me though. Other people might find an appreciable difference with it compared to ZX300, just not for me and my ringing ears. :(

        It's been 4 hours... haven't seen him listen to music this long before and he has tried Andromeda, Orion, and Verum 1 (albeit with channel imbalance issue that comes and goes).

        "You must think I hate money," said he "Fuck you for bringing this into my life." I think he likes it.
