For a couple of weeks ago I bought some new CF-cards of different brands for testing purposes. And one of them, Advantech, sounded very, very good in my ears. Imo it’s better than Apacer, and also better than the KingSpec that I used earlier. KingSpec seems to be a bit too noisy, after that comparison.
The biggest difference lies in more black sound with less noise, and better dynamics
You can easily find it on the market if you want to try it and I think the price is affordable.
