Would you consider a trade for a UE sf5pro?
I see no point in arguing about whether the OP should use a DAP if he doesn't want to -_- I think generally if you want quality sound out of a PCDP you need to get one with an SPDIF out and run it through a DAC and amp because like it or not, PCDPs nowadays are not popular enough for the manufacturers to make them with high quality designs and components. Me thinks this is also part of the reason why the older players, made when PCDPs were expensive and to some degree...
As for the reasons for the differences in the sound quality, it all comes from the circuit design and the components used between 6G and 5G. The two do not have identical lineouts and they probably don't have identical headphone outs either. The 5G uses a better DAC in theory, but in stock form the lineout signal goes through various circuits (I don't know the specifics) that degrade the sound. I'm sure that wasn't the intent in the design but it's what happens. The...

Actually, I realized that I can put the vintage receiver on my desk just fine.. at first I just wanted to maximize space, but I never use my full desk anyhow.. However, now the problem is that the receiver is flaky.. the left channel doesn't work most of the time and the power supply kinda flickers when it's coming up and takes a while to stabilize.. Anyone know of a good resource for how to fix these things?
Well, I already have a "vintage" receiver, the problem though is that it's not very compact.. I want something I can put on my desk. Well, that and the power supply is flaky..
well, you could always just cut the existing cable to a shorter length and re-terminate it with a stereo plug. You don't really need to recable just to get a shorter cable. "recable" means replacing the cable, so you'd have to desolder the existing cable from the drivers and solder on the new cable. If you're not after the possible sound quality improvements, you might as well save yourself a little money and the possibility of ruining your drivers by just just cutting...
Hey everyone. I haven't been on here for a while now.. I'm thinking about getting a stereo amplifier to use with my computer and a pair of cheap polk speakers I picked up a while back and hoping someone can make a suggestion for something good on a budget. I'm looking for something under $100 if possible. I don't mind DIY. I need it to be pretty versatile as I like to listen to rock, classical, and anything in between. I'll be using a pair of Polk Audio R15s. ...
I hope those of you in the US are using bing's cashback offer.. 35% cashback on orders from att.com. I ordered my 3GS through that last saturday (6/20) and I'm waiting for it, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting...........
It's very easy, as long as you don't snap the battery connector off from the main board. It's not hard, you just have to be very careful. If you've opened it once before without breaking anything, and by opened you mean you've actually had it completely apart (folded open like a book) then that's the hardest part. Be careful when you remove the old battery because you can easily tear the headphone cable that runs under it. The cable is clearly visible. So just make...
