The Hidizs Mermaid MS1 and MS4 IEMs with their cables and accessories

The Hidizs Mermaid MS1 and MS4 IEMs with their cables and accessories

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I received the brand-new Hidizs Mermaid MS1 and MS4 In-Ear Monitors Absolute Kits. The Hidizs Mermaid MS1 is an IEM with 1 Dynamic Driver, while the Hidizs Mermaid MS4 is an IEM with 1 Dynamic Driver and 3 Knowles Balanced Armatures. My initial impressions are excellent. These IEMs do a lot to reproduce the music. I found that the MS1, with just the Dynamic Driver, produces a warm sound with great mids and smooth bass and treble….

In the meantime, here’s the unboxing video:

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Hi everyone, I have found a solution for when my Tempotec iDSD Plus gets the Orange LED. The solution is fairly easy. I believe that something may not be making good contact with the printed circuit board and may be preventing the DAC from working. However, slightly pushing around the SmartAction SA2000 chip, it seems to make the LED change back to green and allow the unit to work. You can see the video below where you can see the…

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Opus GUI v1.10 released!

Hi everyone, Today, I released Opus GUI v1.10: This new version adds support for ffmpeg’s native Opus encoder. I also included the latest x64 release of opusenc. As to what ffmpeg encoder to use, I recommend sticking to ffmpeg libopus, as my own tests revealed some artifact issues using ffmpeg opus. A difference between these 2 is that libopus encodes using variable bitrate while ffmpeg opus encodes only with a constant bitrate. Since libopus use variable bitrate, it can allocate…

This CD was released in 2003 and contains 8 remixes from Disney’s Main Street Electrical Parade and it was released exclusively in Japan. The remixes included in this CD are really worthwhile.
