Testing 1,2,3... Campfire Audio Vega vs Andromeda.

 

I did a quick bit of testing today. rather superficial but one needs to feed the beasts!

 

I used a Logitech SPL meter app on my ipod touch to try to match the volumes somewhat.

I used the stock foam tips on both.

Litz cable.

 

Using the Opus#1 Dap.

 

CA Vega

 

Deep full bass.

Sub bass has medium decay, upper bass fast decay.

Vocals are just a little ahead of the music.

3D, not holographic.

very large soundstage.

Nice soft mids, lingering.

Great detail.

More width than height.

spacey, airy.

Clear, clarity.

Not linear or flat, but even.

 

CA Andromeda

 

Softer bass than Vega.

Fast sub bass decay, upper bass is also fast.

Vocals more forward.
