Wyrd USB Decrapifier

If you run USB, you need this!

Mediahound

Pros: Absolutely sounds better with it

Cons: Power supply draws 2 watt even when unit is off

I've done a lot of A-B comparing and the Schiit Wyrd absolutely improves my sound quality. Without it, the music sounds more distant, less expansive, less clear and also a bit softer volume.    A bit of background; I'm running a good quality 10 foot Belkin AV USB able from my Mac to the Dac. The Mac has sorta weak USB as it is.   I was not really getting dropouts except on a...

Bose® Computer MusicMonitor® -- Silver

Pros: They do look nice! Easy to put beside your screen, does not occupy much space.

Cons: The sound is flat, no details or sparkle. The Bass is dull and boring. Pricey!

Pitty about the manufacturing flaw!

“ I wanted to upgrade my computer sound card in preparation for higher impedance phones and eventually a desktop amp. This more than does the trick and improved onboard sound more than I'd expected.   The con about it needing a good power source isn't an argument against it. It turned out that my computer (Vostro 420, 2009) didn't have an extra power connection for the card so I ended...” --rroseperry

Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System

Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System

“ Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!   The small speakers do tend to be outclassed by the bass driver. They get loud, but the dont project...” --mattphones

Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium HD PCI-E

“Ingame shotgun sound from behind actually freaked me out first time I heard it and had to check my back!   If you want a sound card, then go high-end or not at all. The motherboard inbuilt ones can do sometimes better than cheap soundcards. This one is a bit more expensive, but very high-end and will make a huge difference! You will be left to wonder how you lived without. Crystal clear...” --Validus

Swan M10

Swan M10

“Like many others, I was very skeptical about the Swans M10 2.1. How can something that retails for only around US$60 in China get such rave reviews in the Internet audio circles? So I bought one to check it out, after all it was only US$80 from where I live.   Sure, it has wooden enclosures unlike the downright nasty plastic used by at this price range, but it still looks kinda cheap to...” --Palladium

Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System

“Purchased these this week, and had them replaced with another set - which exhibited the same flaw. Two may be a curse, but they both did the same thing so I would be wary.    When on standby, the speakers issued a very low sounding 'ticking' sound (every 3 seconds or so), and the subwoofer exhibited a medium-frequency humming noise. (no, not interference - tried with computer off...” --Fademan77

“ I just got these and am impressed with the detail and clarity of these speakers.  I only wanted something simple, small, and cheap.  I was looking at the swans but don't have the opportunity to listen to them here in hawaii.  We are pretty limited to whats available here and on Oahu is where they'd most likely have more options for me to listen to.  But back to the review.  I am currently...” --Hawaiiancerveza

iFi iUSB Power

“ iFi iUSB reached Earmass! I have received this review unit of iFi iUSB from Vince few weeks back, and I used it extensively with my rigs. It is indeed a sin for me to enjoy the iUSB so much but delayed the review for so long, in fact, I intentionally delayed this review because lately I have bunch of DAC and Amp arrive at Earmass, so I think this is a good...” --mrinspire

ASUS Xonar Essence ST Headphone 7.1-Channel Audio Card for Audiophiles

“ So first of all, for people who are saying that they are hearing noise from outputs. The only noise I hear from the card is from HP out, when sample rate is set to 44.1 Khz.  What can be the reason of the noise and how to prevent it:  1. Don't use video cards. Use only integrated video. 2. Before buying a PSU read some reviews about ripple and noise tests, voltage regulator...” --Vartan
