Friend, Male, from Finland

Friend BWC

Campfire Audio Andromeda someday...cause I am worth it. Also Verum1's would be nice to complete my collection. Jun 5, 2020 at 12:29 PM

      Dirac representative told me: "I think that you are quite knowledgeable about the subject and I don't have much to add". Drinks all-round.

      Stagediver SD5 has better tonality and less shouty uppermids than the PP8. Bass might be a tad to much. Maybe. Also fits my ears.

      Finnished my first Dirac calibration today. Them crazy Swedes are onto something. Sounds a lot better than XT32/ARC already.

      Prophile 8 is an excellent sounding IEM. Unfortunately no amount of tip-rolling gives me a comfortable fit. Stagedivers are not a problem.

        @brencho this was my first test of a very expensive IEM. My experience with them are basically none.

      BlueOS seems suprisingly nice and convenient. Must compare to DigiOne/ Picore setup.

        Quick comparison last night with the DigiOne was that the DigiOnesounds smoother and less upfront. Bass digs deeper too.

        I'm so glad you enjoy the NAD! It's super unfriendly but works awesome when you can deal with it's kinks.

        Yeah. It is pretty bare bones, but I like it. Hopefully in the coming weeks can try the Dirac. Have you played around with that yet?

        I can't even stand 4K, text is just to small and I don't see the point in scaling. 1440p is just right.

        For me it's not so much about the size…I can't stand to see the pixels. Before the 200+ ppi screens, I used an Acer 1920x1200 24" that was dense enough you wouldn't see'em.

      Would the Campfire Andromeda be a good alternative to some closed back headphones for office usage?

        I use Andromeda regularly in office and during commute. It isolates well, can be removed easily with the right tips (at least for me), quite comfortable for 3-4 hours of use (again, with the right tips), and sounds pretty damn awesome. From what I've read here, TH-00 series don't isolate well and let out quite a bit of sound - might be a dealbreaker for some.

        In a word, yes. I have TH-X00EB + Cavalli LC, and Andro + Fiio X5G3, and I reach for Andro way more often than TH-X00EB. (Edit: at work, with semi-regular interruptions)

      What is a good price for Denon D2000? The seller here wants 200€, which I think is a bit steep.

        They have some energy up top, but not overly so. I don't hear a problem.

        Had them for awhile. They are semi-open, so still don't blast them. That means they don't block everything either. I found the V-sound signature perfect for low volume.

        Antlion modmic, or just pay the $50 and look for a used/discounted XLR-USB mic from your favorite audio brands, like an ATR-2100, Blue Snowball, etc.

        At first I was a bit underwhelmed - a rather plastic built with indistinct buttons. However, it has received regular updates that improves functionality. It has a really handy app for management and sounds good! I prefer this to the Shanling M0.
