“ I picked up a FiiO E17 when en route Germany to stay there for the 2012 Christmas period and the early days of 2013. I wanted to do some video editing work and listen to music when over there but didn't want to be without the stalwart reference quality Lavry DA10 which I didn't want to travel with on that occassion, so I decided to give the E17 a try. Prior to owning...” --Windsor
“ Without referring to "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's" (A.K.A. NwAvGuy) blog, and speaking from my own listening experiences, I really do think the Objective 2 is a great headphone amplifier. No, I don't think this is the amp to end all amps, but it's a dang good one and it only cost me $156 USD (which includes the Triad brand WAU12-200 AC adaptor). In fact, it can be found...” --miceblue
“ I do not have much experience with many gears, but here is the short story of an amateur in the hobby, how he get to the Micro iCan. I used Fiio X3 first gen. to listen to music with a Schiit Vali. (And HD600) I liked the line out of the X3, as it was much cleaner, more detailed superior sound over the headphone out. However I used the headphone out sometimes if needed some...” --bestula
“ Me: I am an amateur musician & avid admirer of music from India. I would like to call myself a music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I was inspired by music since childhood, and as the time passed, the passion of music grew in me, and that subsequently led me to join Head-Fi. Eventually, I found the pleasure of listening to music mainly by the HD600 and recently, by the...” --YoYo JoKeR
“ I purchased the Nuforce Icon HDP along with Sennheiser HD 650 headphones as my first desktop setup about six months ago. I'll start off by saying that the HDP has been a fantastic purchase that I am thrilled with and enthusiastically recommend, especially as a starter desktop setup. The HDP has loads of power and easily drives my Sennheiser HD 650s and other high impedence...” --Sid-Fi
“ Sound: They expanded the soundstage a noticeable amount as well as instrument separation between the 2 channels. However, at first listen on the standard music app, i found the vocals to be a little muddy or low end heavy. Not enough treble to bring out the details of the instruments or the singer's voice. So I tried using it in conjunction with the EQu app and to my surprise i found it...” --Player1josh46
“ I bought this DAC-preamp and after several attempts made the following changes to it for an amazing result: Installed 5670 Raytheon Windmill getter tube upgraded diodes to Schottky Diode 11DQ10 Changed the output coupling caps to Sanyo Oscon 47uF opamp for tube to LT1364 or metal version of LM4562. The biggest gain came from opamp then the diodes. Do not...” --Lecentaur
“ REVIEW – Schiit Audio Valhalla Tube Headphone Amplifier What Sort of Schiit is This? I read, as did many of you, the head-fi threads about the very popular and attractively priced Schiit Asgard. But to be quite candid, I personally had about as much interest in an inexpensive solid-state headphone amp as I did in weeding behind my garage. As such, I have never heard the...” --Skylab
“While I was scrolling through previous reviews of the Headstage Arrow something became apparent: some things never change. The Headstage Arrow comes with a tradition. If you want one, you’ll have to wait for it. Up to the point the wait seems unbearable - and then some. But as always when you finally get it, it’ll have been worth it. Besides the wait, Robert (Headstage is a one man company...” --flinkenick
