As for the Koss KTXpro1, they sound quite different than the ksc75's, wayyyyyy more bass. I think that might be the cause of the distortion. They sound better than the JVC Flats - I got them on a whim,...they didn't disappoint. They TRULY need no EQ'ing, so all the user reviews & opinions were on point.

PS: They are built quite crappy tho,...
If the Nano sounds too bright to you, it probably would sound good to me...lol.
Sounds like those KTX's are more like the Portapro sound than the KSC75, and that's a good thing!

All I know is the ONLY dap I didn't like it with is the iPod nano 5G - I traded it with my little sis-in-law for another Sony S639. The SQ is fantastic, and even BETTER w/the D:ZO. I'm switching a few tunes on it ATM, so I'm listing to mt iPhone 4G+D:ZO+hfi-780's,...EXCELLENT SQ!!!

I'm starting to get curious about this.

I need something to pair with my HD650.

I trust him I'm going to wait a bit though.

One thing could this or is it suggested to use this in place of BBE+

I don't own a Cowon ATM, but I doubt you'll need BBE+ when you use this great little amp - it's something you'd need to try for yourself to understand.

Now i really want one, ive stuck with cowon for the sole purpose of using BBE, if i get this, it'l open up my options (not that i dislike cowons.) Anyways, I think I'm going to wait a while before I buy one, since A. i just bought a D2, and B. i might as well wait for a full spectrum version.

I know that it would work, I just wonder how big the difference will be....Mach3Bass sure helps them.

Actually the loudness is to much for most of my IEMS on Machbass I usually customize my own.

The D2 doesn't have the Mach3Bass preset like the S9 and the J2, my only option is customizing it.

Im just mad because I purchased a fiio e11 right before dfkt put the review up. I didn't know anything about this thing until Darkside showed me the way. Now I don't have quite enough yet to get one. I wish I can find one for about $80 or less. I guess I have to wait a few weeks then. Or I can just wait for the v2 to come out. When the e11 comes then I'll give some impressions on it. Would have been good to do a comparison though.

I just read that the v2 ZO might (hopefully) get an early September release date.

The v2 will not be full spectrum so it might be a long wait (over a year?)
