“Though the headamps and the DAPS used here were not perfect or totally neutral, their shortcomings were detectable with the X. I listened through them as well as to them to truly hear these outstanding headphones. A collection of SD chips forming the Maria Callas Opera Recordings in 96kHz/24-bit, produced in cost-is-no-object fashion by Astell&Kern, are a learning experience. Nothing is fake, compressed, expanded, or screwed with. On the Astell & Kern A&ultima SP1000, or fed into my E.A.R. DAC 4 to the E.A.R. HP4 headphone amp, the final Sonorous X was unabashedly a window on the performance, i.e., utter perfection. Callas was the authentic Callas, singing from the first act of Carmen, as real and breathtaking as ever heard. The symphony played just behind her, filling the soundstage. The chorus was behind and above the orchestra.”
