Worth over $200. FREE AUS Shipping AUS Stock with original invoice. Description Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm A breakthrough core technology developed by HIFIMAN and first of its kind in headphone application. Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging yet the successful incorporation of this film as the HE1000se's planar driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound. Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnets The magnet design used on the HEICK)Ose, aims to be acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence which degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The result is reduced distortion, yielding a purer, more harmonious sound that is audibly so. Unlike the sound waves created by a conventional magnet, the spæial of stealth magnet of HEIWOse enables the waves to pass through the magnet without generating interference. Cegradation of sound quality in a conventional planar magnetic headphone is caused by the magnets getting in the way of the sound wave. The same happens in conventional electrostatic headphone, the degradation of sound quality caused by the stator's interference. A conventional dynamic driver's frequency response can be altered due to distortions and vibrations across the diaphragm surface. Patented "Window Shade" System Created to meet the need for driver protection and optimised open-back design Asymmetrical Ear Cups Follows the natural shape of the human ear. Sturdy 3.5mm User-replaceable Connector Design Allows easy cable swapping, giving both maximum durability and enhanced customisability The Metal Structure Craftsmanship Created via CNC milling and hand polishing. To meet the critical standard set out by HIFIMAN, the surface finish is meticulously applied by skilled HIFIMAN craftsmen. With its bold design, exceptional audio quality and exquisite craftsmanship, the HE1000se is a prestige headphone that redefines the audio landscape.

  3. TOPPING D90 MQA Decode Bluetooth 5.0 AK4499EQ Balanced XLR Preamp/DAC - AU STOCK + TOPPING A90 Full Balanced Headphone Amplifier XLR Pre-Amplifier - AU STOCK = Both in Silver 2/7/20 FREE AUS Shipping PLUS - a free high quality short XLR to connect them as shown in the pictures D90 MQA Description A direct successor to the D70 Topping, the D90 benefits from the same refinements as its big brother while updating its DAC with a newer and more efficient version, the AK4499 AKM. For the rest, it largely follows the excellent internal design of the previous model and its exceptional performance. This version includes an MQA decoder and supports full decoding of this type of file format on its USB input. DAC AK4499 & Accusilicon Clocks New flagship from AKM, the AK4499 DAC chip allows precise, fast and clean conversion of high-resolution audio files. The D90 thus integrates on its digital-to-analog conversion stage an AK4499 chip with Thesycon drivers allowing transparent and rich sound reproduction and supporting PCM files up to 32bit 768kHz and DSD up to DSD512 (via USB and I2S). The DAC is combined with a pair of AccuSilicon 451584MHz and 49.1520MHz high-end femtosecond clocks and a CPLD. These allow a perfect synchronization of the data signals for an absolutely impressive jitter attenuation. USB XMOS XU216 Interface & SPDIF AK4118 Receiver For its digital interfaces, Topping once again chooses very high quality and performance by integrating into its D90 an XMOS XU216 USB chip supporting high sampling rates up to 32bit 768kHz and up to native DSD512. For SPDIF streams, an AKM AK4118 AKM chip processes the signal with extremely low jitter. This last chip is used for the Optical, Coaxial and AES inputs and allows sampling rates up to 24bit 192kHz PCM to be achieved on the latter. Connectivity & Features With its many features and connections, the D90 can be integrated into a vast majority of audio systems, offering many options for use and installation. For its input connectivity, there are AES, USB-B (XMOS), Coaxial, Toslink Optics, and I2S LVDS via HDMI. Note that this last input has several selectable modes to adapt to your other I2S LVDS devices. On the output side, the D90 offers unbalanced RCA Stereo and balanced XLR. The D90's intelligent design allows only one or both outputs to be activated at a time. With its integrated volume control, the D90 also acts as a preamplifier since it includes a volume controller. This volume control function can however be disabled so that the D90 can only be used as a DAC with output levels constantly at their maximums, i.e. 4Vrms for XLR output and 2Vrms for RCA output.

With a SINAD up to 123dB (measured by Audio Science Review) on its balanced output and an incredibly low distortion of 0.000086%, the A90 significantly expands the boundaries of what most advanced home audio equipment can offer. Balanced & single-ended connectivity Topping A90 has a stereo balanced input XLR 3-pole and an single-ended input stereo RCA connector on its rear face . It offers a balanced (XLR) / single--ended (RCA) as preamplified output. The connectors dedicated to the headphone amplifier are located on the front panel. A90 has all the connections necessary to easily connect headphones / IEM with various characteristics and requirements: a balanced output on XLR 4-pole connector, a second balanced output on jack TRRS 4.4mm connector Balanced headphone outputs are capable of delivering a power of 250mW and have an output impedance of 0135 ?. Finally tthe frontpanel offers an unbalanced output on 6.35mm connector with a power output of 125mW. Volume control, source selection / outputs The preamplifier / headphone amplifier A90 provides a volume control through a rotary knob directly accessible from its facade. On its front side, three selectors allow easy control of all the device functions to immediately find the best configuration for your setup. A first selector allows selecting the output mode and can switch between preamplifier mode and headset amplifier mode. These two modes can not be active simultaneously. This switch is also used to turn off the device. A second bipolar selector serves as source selection and allows the user to select between balanced and single-ended input. It is therefore possible to connect two separate devices on each of these inputs and use the A90 as simple source selector. The last selector is a gain control with three levels (low gain / medium gain / high gain) to get the best performance according to your sources and the type of headphones used.

  8. A great amp and some really nice tubes (there's some $$$ in there) to start the "rolling" journey. And that Pass Labs in the pic - wow! GLWS.
  9. A great opportunity to try some different cables as you A-B your gear, upgrade or have spares. Given the low price point and cost of posting individually, I'd prefer to keep as a job lot. 1X WIREWORLD UltraViolet 7 Coaxial Digital Cable 1M With silver-plated OFC conductors in a precision 75-ohm coaxial design, Ultraviolet provides a true upgrade in smoothness and three-dimensional imaging. 1X Audioquest Forest HDMI Cable 1.0M 1X Audioquest Forest Coaxial Cable 1.0M
  10. The Silver Sonic D-110 is a precision 110 Ohm AES/EBU type balanced digital interface cable. 110 Ohm digital cables are most often used to carry digital audio data from A/D converters to digital tape transports in recording studios. They are also used between CD transports and D/A converters in home hi-fi systems as an alternative to the more common S/PDIF 75 Ohm coaxial interface. 110 Ohm cables are terminated with XLR connectors. The Silver Sonic D-110 was designed to be a state-of-the-art, no compromise product. We feel it’s sonic performance equals or exceeds all other cables of this type, regardless of price. This level of performance is achieved by combining the finest materials available with the highest level of quality control. A critical goal for any digital interface cable is to maintain a uniform characteristic impedance. This is achieved in the D-110 through the use of a pure PTFE insulation whose thickness is held to a tolerance of .002 inch (.05 mm). The material is extruded under pressure in order to maintain maximum consistency, which minimizes a phenomenon called “VSWR spikes”, a cause of jitter. Other features of the D-110 include silver coated conductors for improved conductivity, solid rod spacers to maintain a constant impedance, and 100% shield coverage to eliminate noise and interference. Our custom D.H. Labs XLR connectors feature direct-gold-plated, pure OFC copper contact pins, far exceeding industry standards. If your audio system has the ability to utilize the 110 Ohm digital interface, we recommend auditioning the D-110 before investing large sums of money in other cables. Several recording and mastering studios have already selected the D-110 as their cable of choice. Experience all that audio has to offer with DH Labs!

Includes two extra cables plus the Stock 4 pin XLR as pictured 1 X Aurealis UPOCC copper litz headphone cable @ 1.8 metres - 26 awg litz; Neutrik mini-4-pin XLRs at HP end; Neutrik balanced 4-pin XLR at source; and cobalt blue/woodland camo 275 paracord 1 X dual 4-pin mini XLR entry terminated 6.3mm - 22.5 AWG OFC wire made with 10 x 8mil strands to minimise proximity effects resulting in a more natural sounding low resistance cable. - Effective capacitance below 70pF/m between conductors - Teflon dielectric - 3D printed splitter - Fully sleeved end to end - Foil & braid shield with 100% coverage against RFI(shell/sleeve grounded) FREE SHIPPING AUS The Meze Empyrean is the product of two passionate companies coming together to explore what is possible beyond their individual capabilities. The result is a no-compromise headphone embodying Meze’s daring aesthetic and user-centred design approach and Rinaro’s experience in research and development within the field of planar magnetics. Rinaro, a progressive audio company, has at the heart of its technology an R&D team that has been at the forefront of planar magnetic development since the 1980’s. What originally started as a state-funded initiative with a focus on innovation has now entered into a new chapter of audio progression with the opening of a cutting-edge industrial facility in Ukraine. FRAME Fibreglass infused ABS HYBRID MAGNET ARRAY Symmetrically placed on each side of the diaphragm, our neodymium magnets are specifically arranged into a Hybrid Array to create efficient Isodynamic magnetic field required for a uniform activation across the whole diaphragm surface. RINARO ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM Weighing only 0.16 g while having 4650 mm² of active area. HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER ADVANTAGES Combines two independently shaped voice coils within the same diaphragm delivering more selective acoustic performance to the various areas within the structure of the ear. ACCURATE REPRODUCTION Total harmonic distortion (THD) measures under 0.1% in the whole frequency range LIGHTWEIGHT Reduced driver weight designed to create a headphone that offers prolonged listening sessions ERGONOMIC SHAPE Ergonomically shaped driver structure with an increased active area ULTRA-HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO Upper-frequency limit of audio reproduction is 110,000 Hz ULTRA EFFICIENT 100db@1mw/1kHz High performance without needing amplification PATENT PENDING ISODYNAMIC HYBRID ARRAY DRIVER World's first in planar magnetic headphones The Meze Empyrean Driver combines individual switchback and spiral-shaped voice coils, their unique shapes allowing sound to be targeted with more accuracy around the natural form of the ear. This unique combination generates an increased exposure of direct sound wave frequencies over the 10kHz range and improves imaging and localization by decreasing the impact of shortwave time delays caused by diffused field reflections. AUDIBLE BENEFITS OF A DUAL DRIVEN SYSTEM One of the problems with conventional planar magnetic arrays is coming from reflected signals entering the ear canal with different time delays, thereby worsening the focus of 3D sound imaging. Combining different voice coil configurations makes it possible to create a better sound intensity distribution across the sound wavefront at high frequencies when directed at the auricle and ear canal. ISOPLANAR® DIAPHRAGM MATERIAL The diaphragm is manufactured from a custom developed isotropic thermally stabilized polymer with a conductive layer. Through unique processing methods, an ultralight yet rigid diaphragm has been achieved. SWITCHBACK COIL The switchback coil is more efficient at reproducing lower frequencies and is positioned in the upper part of the driver. SPIRAL COIL The spiral coil is more efficient at reproducing middle-high frequencies and is positioned directly over the ear canal enabling more direct sound waves to enter the ear without any time delays.

  13. Dual AKM4497EQs should be fine with any of the amps we mentioned. A musical DAC.
  14. Gumby/Molly is a proven combo and provides plenty of power and clarity but was a bit lacklustre for Utopias.
  15. Hi Michael, Ben is correct (IMO) about the amp pairings with Utopia. In theory, given their impedance and sensitivity, they should be easy to drive. And to some extent, they are. However, beware the easy numbers! Utopias are picky! They can sound thin and bright, even with high performance (and priced) amps. I feel this is why they can get a bad rap from a lot of people. The A90 is adequate with Utopias. I use it with a D90 for away from home duties as they complement each other quite nicely. But....I use a Stellia with them as I want closed. You might be mindful of the DAC pairing too as this can push them into that bright territory. I'd be thinking about Schiit Lyr 3 and Cayin i-HA6. You could move up to Questyle CMA600/800R or iCAN for a "warmer" presentation. And upwards! If you find the right pairing, the Utopias can really sing and you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much rich sound they can produce.
