    Meeting Dan (Mr. Speakers) in person will probably change your mind on that. Never before have I, as a potential customer, been treated with such disrespect or indifference.

    He will never see a penny from me. Ever.

    Wow, that's honestly a surprise to me.

    The couple of times I've met him at meets, he's been very friendly and helpful.

    I can only hope he was having a bad day.

    I'd really like to try them both, and hd820 too. All the closed cans I've tried so far have left me sad. Some excel in comfort, but none in sound.

    Mr. Speakers conversation moved to PM’s. Sorry for the noise. My experiences are more like @Jinxy245 We should stop here, and get back to advice per the thread purpose.

    Move along, just a large water buffalo hit by a truck, nothing to see here.......

    Hello everyone,

    I'm in the process of streamlining my office gear and could use some advice regarding IEM's. For starters, my main rig consists of a Raspberry PI3 > Gumby > BW2 > HD650/LCD-2C/Focal Clears. The system is used exclusively with Roon.

    I recently bought a Hiby R6 DAP for use as a secondary/office/travel system and have been using it with Mee Audio Pinnacle P1's. While the P1's are nice I can't see myself enjoying these long term considering what I use as a main rig.

    What I'm looking for is a nice pair of IEM's that would be used primarily with my DAP and if possible with my main rig. I've been looking at the Campfire Andromeda. I understand that an IFI iEMatch would be needed to deal with the impedance issues.

    With that said, what other alternative IEMs I should consider? Ideally I would like to keep pricing between $500-$1000.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm loving the Massdrop Plus. Super comfortable, pleasantly neutral, without being either neuteted or ocd analytical. Great buy as well.

    Here's an oddball one for you guys: A friend of mine is looking for a powered speaker that has a built-in phono preamp. The only one I know off the top of my head is the Klipsch R-15PM. Are there any other options? His budget is <$400usd.

    The Kanto YU4 might be a decent option? I haven't heard them, but positive reviews seem to keep popping up and they do have the built-in phono.
