mp3tag setup guide

How to use mp3tag to edit and properly tag your music files (Particularly FLAC and mp3 files).       Using mp3 tag to properly clean and edit your tags for both DX100 and Hisound Products (keep in mind this can apply to many other DAPs in general):   The directions below are in large part dealing with the Hisound products but you can use them as well to get your DX100 to properly show tags and music in general. I do not recommend having more than 1 type of tag embedded into the file. I do use ID3V2 though on mp3 files on the DX100 where I want the album art... read more

AKG K1000 - A collection of information and links

This is a compendium of K1000 knowledge that was sitting unused in the catacombs of head-fi.  It was originally posted by krmathis and I thought I'd ressurect it here for everyone's benefit.   Original thread here.  Main posts follow:   Here you find information, links to reviews, impressions, recommendations, and more for the AKG K1000 headphone.

Headphone Buying Guide

((This post will constantly be in a work in progress, the headphone world is constantly changing with new competitors and my goal is to keep this up to date with as much detail as possible.

Comparisons of the LCD-3 and the LCD-2 Rev. 2

I've spent the better part of two nights going back and forth between these two headphones. Just my personal thoughts made from the notes that I took...two cents as they say....likely worth that.   As a bit of a backdrop, here are my thoughts on the differences between the R1 and R2 LCD-2s:   http://www.head-fi.org/a/comparisons-of-lcd-2-rev-1-and-rev-2     Ergonomics/Aesthetics Both headphones look like they’re part of the same family with some distinctions (kinda like the Baldwin brothers I guess). I prefer the darker wood colour of the LCD-2s, but... read more

Comparisons of LCD-2 Rev. 1 and Rev. 2

With the death of the massive LCD-2 thread, I thought maybe a wiki was a little more appropriate: So I’ve had an evening with both my LCD-2 revisions and here are a few thoughts... Ergonomics/Aesthetics Upon first glance it is very easy to dismiss these two as “identical twins”, but upon closer inspection there are a few subtle differences. First off, the wood on the Rev. 2 is a lighter shade than my older LCD-2s (purchased last September) and the finish of the wood is a little more “polished” and professional in appearance on the newer version. However, I think I... read more
