The spark that ignited my love for high-quality audio gear started with a yearning of discovering my own preferences of music. This had first started with the Sansa Fuze DAP and the MEELEC M9 IEM. Although this combination was not enough for me. I had searched the internet for greater portable audio gear and I have stumbled across a new frontier that is familiar to audiophiles and enthusiasts and new to me. Ever since then, I have craved for the zen of high fidelity audio, which has been pursued for a decade of upgrades.
