I'm in the market for an amp/DAC for my UE18 PROs. I was leaning toward the Benchmark Dac2 until I read it is intended to drive headphones with impedance down to 35ohms. The UEs are 21. Are there any reference-level DAC/amp combos intended for low impedance iems? How about just amps? Thanks! 
What's the best small speaker you'd consider purchasing if it will be placed on a media center instead of stands? We recently went from a very small audio stand to a huge media cabinet (http://fromthesourceny.com/2012/08/vandamm-media/) and I'm looking for a speaker to place on the stand with a 42" lcd between. Would you consider something as high-end as a ProAc Tablette Anniversary? Use is probably 65% tv/movies and 35% music. I have a Revel B112 sub so bass extension...

Quick update: The Jensen isolator fixed it. Wow. Would have saved myself so much trouble by not getting the cheap one the first time around.

I just put my 535s through the wash in my pants pocket.   Life sucks.   That is all.
Public service announcement. I recently RMA'ed a Powercolor HD7970 that died while I was doing work in Word. My warranty claim was DENIED due to a very small nick on the edge of the card. I didn't even know it was there until I received the zoomed-in shot from the Powercolor warranty guys. Just a heads up that Powercolor will screw you six different ways if you've left so much as a fingerprint on the product. This is the first time in over 10 years I've ever had to RMA a...
Finally got a replacement sub (Revel b112)  for the doa one. Plus got some Red Wing boots. Only worn them a couple times and hoping they break in. My feet hurt bad.          
Sold!
Thanks for the help all. I've always had some background noise, but I actually was having even worse hissing/hum issues after recently changing my system config. Moving or even touching one particular set of interconnects would clearly affect the sound. Kinda funny, those cables are the only "audiophile grade" cables I own and they are the worst. I replaced that set and the new ones don't have the same issue, but the background hum remains.   I read that audioholics page...
