    You can get the Dekoni Choice Suede to have a very similar frequency response.

    TOPPING D90 III Sabre DAC Review

    This feature + D70 Pro interface might be a better reason to upgrade my DAC, not a 0.3dB SINAD improvement over their last record…

    Topping D90LE - "Valve" and "Transistor" effects measurements

    I wonder if it sounds more euphonic in tube mode with the increased 2nd harmonic distortion and if it's jarring in transistor mode compared between them and between normal mode; assuming no distortion is the best; If something meant to sound in a particular way, It should have been created that...

    SMSL HO100 Review (Headphone Amp)

    Since there are no measurements based reviews on any of them,, I've just checked the specs and some graphs of both MX5 and the AO200. They both have a relatively high S/N ratio of 110db or above, BUT SINAD of 0.003% (-90dB) which means that performance limits are dominated by distortion. If you...

    SMSL HO100 Review (Headphone Amp)

    The AO200 is an all in one combo that includes a built in DAC. You can connect it to your phone thru USB or Bluetooth and speakers. Anyway, you are right about the small to non existent difference between a cheap excellent DAC and an expensive excellent DAC, yet finding yourself spending much...

    SMSL HO100 Review (Headphone Amp)

    While the HO100 is very good, it's not as flawless as the DO100 and will not be a "perfect" amp for the "perfect" DAC. Amir pushes these companies that hard that we become so spoiled with great performance on the cheap…

    SMSL DO100 Review (Stereo DAC)

    A very impressive device for a budget price. The multi tone test is even cleaner than Topping E50! It looks like the right time for the balanced Topping D50 Pro + A50 Pro.

    Moondrop Blessing 2 Review (IEM)

    Your comparison is interesting, I'm hesitating between the blessing 2 dusk, Timeless and Monarch mk2. There is another model, Shuoer S12, a planar magnetic IEM, that roughly matches the Timeless qualities and according to a subjective reviewer, has a better bass . What do you think about...

    HIDIZS DH80S Review (DAC & Amp)

    The measured results of the 120db DAC champions drops to about 96db or so with 16bit, so it's about getting a good enough one. The main differences are with speakers/ Headphones and amps. I have the SMSL iDEA too, and the DH80S is noticeably superior as a DAC+AMP; cleaner, has better separation...

    HIDIZS DH80S Review (DAC & Amp)

    I use the DH80S with my Ananda, playing Flac 16bit/44.1K files with a fraction of its power. The DAC here surpasses the CD quality for sure, and the Amp is powerful for low impedance and high sensitive headphones. If 24bit is used, so top desktop Dac-Amp is obviously better, but I wonder if even...
