Lieven is living in Europe and he's the leader of the gang. Coming from a musical family he's always been interested in good sound. Unlike his family members the only musical instruments he plays are amps and DACs. He loves playing with old tubes and discovering new products while staying faithful to the good old Sennheiser HD650.

    Nice pics. What are those colorful ALO Island lookalikes on Page 1? We know how Mike looks like but the new kid, Nathan?

      Let’s keep it a secret how Nathan looks. Who knows it could be useful one day as my cover is already blown 😉

      The new island Lookalikes haven’t publicly launched, but are from Korean manufacturer, HiSonus (http://www.hisonus.com). They do DSD, are made in Korea (not necessarily a good thing yet), and will go for a song.

      The reports on them from other headfi members are not encouraging though. I tried twisting their UFO rotaries and was disappointed by the play in the wheel not to mention the plastic skirt underneath.

      They are yet to market, so we will see. I hope a lot can change between now and then.

    The Radius on page 4 is using the Onkyo HF Player app like the AK10/A200p so it looks like it can handle FLAC and DSD.

      Same sound, but much smaller. Pretty easy to use. Has its disadvantages, but has many pluses, too.
