    New open box, removed to test and take photos. Purchased from Moon Audio as the combo package with the recommended Schiit Jotenheim R dedicated amp with optional multi-bit DAC factory installed. All original accessories and cables are included - nice balanced RAAL cable and amp power cord. Comes in factory custom Pelican case and outer shipping box. This headphone and amp are in new condition with no marks of any kind. I bought it August 12, 2020 but never really got a chance to use it since I just got a transfer and have to relocate soon. My loss your gain.....save hundreds off the $4,195 list for a new unit. What I did hear was mind blowing ....you feel like you are in the recording studio. The transparency and detail revealed was way better than any other headphone I owned - Focal and Audeze top models. A game changer like the reviewers say. Price is FIRM - save $600 off list. No international shipping. I will cover the shipping and PayPal fee if used. I also accept personal check, bank issued check, money order, Zelle, bank transfer, PayPal personal (to friend) to avoid the PP fees would be most appreciated.

  3. Before I read through all 655 pages..... Has anyone been able to improve SQ using a Roon Nucleus and SOtM sMS-200 Neo both attached to the same stock Zyxel switch? All powered with an HDPlex 200. I cannot find any info on bridging these two together.
  4. Looking to get the USBridge Signature + Shanti to stream Roon from my Ethernet switch to DAC via USB. What software is recommended to optimize Roon? Thanks
  5. I just tried the Chord Hugo TT2 DAC via XLR analog input to the Kii Three speakers. Yes, it sounded better then the same music file level matched via USB into the Kii Control. There was a bit more air/space between the musicians giving the impression of better resolution and overall more relaxed and musical. Not night and day difference but over careful listening over several days switching back and forth I conclude the Hugo DAC sounded better then going through the Kii Control. So, even with the Kii DSP converting/resampling the Hugo DAC analog signal it still came through as better S
  6. I tried the demos with a pair of Shure SRH840 phones but only got hard pan left or right sound. No sensation of front or surround directions. I toggled the demo off and on and could easily hear the difference from in head to out but it was just outside the left ear or right ear without going toward the front or back as expected. Did I miss something?
  7. Here's a good article from TAS about integrated Systems as the future of audio. It mentions the Kii Three. http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/the-future-of-audio-integrated-systems/
  8. I was anticipating the XMOS to say XU208 somewhere but it did not. Whatever model chip, it is doing a great job handling the USB signal.
  9. Slightly change in topic but I am using a Roon Nucleus straight into the Kii Control via USB. This is giving me very good sound. I tried various devices - EtherRegen, Sonore optical signature Rendu, SoTM trio, Auralic Aries G2, and a few other USB clean up devices but in each case the plain old Nucleus to Kii gave me comparable results. I think it has to do with the Roon software/protocol RAAT communication effectively (bit-perfect) with the Kii Control ALSA. I opened the Kii Control to check the XMOS chip but could not determine which model it was - U132A0C40 and some other num
  10. Last night I used REW to help me find the optimal speaker position in my room. Moving them a bit further into the room and closer together gave me a flatter response and it did sound much better. Boundary was left at -4 setting. As you adjust the boundary setting and do a sweep in REW you can clearly see what each setting is doing to the bass response. Still have much more tweaking to do, just getting started but encouraged by the positive results from being able to see a sweep response graph, make an adjustment, then listen to the result.
  11. I used the new PEQ to knock down a nasty peak I had at 39Hz. Sounds much better now. I wonder what the difference is in PEQ constant Q and prog Q? Good job Kii.
  12. Performed the update today and all went well. Very straight forward and I think the SQ improved a bit? The gain was increased because I had to lower the dB level down a few to get the same SPL. Really like the PEQ feature, lots of tuning ahead. Good job Kii Audio!
  13. Well, I was looking forward to updating mine but the page has been down all day.
  14. Did you reboot the modem/router? I had several connectivity issues that were always solved with a modem power cycle.
