First off a tripod is a must, generally anything slower than 1/60 will get blurry.

Low ISO is also a must, it decreases the noise.

Other than that you can play around with the settings, personally I like a large aperture for low light shots because it pulls the subject closer and you get some nice bokeh :)

 

Hope that helps

 

I need to get my camera fixed :(

Most DSLRs have two knobs.  One knob has the letters, P, A, S, M, and the word Auto on it.  Set that that to A, which puts it in aperture priority mode.  Then, there should be a smaller knob with no letters on it.  This is a multifunctional knob depending on which mode you are in.  Turn that to set the desire aperture.  You'll see the values change on the screen.  Usually, there is an F in front of the number.

LOL...sorry about the unepic 500th.  I'm not sure about the Sony but on my Canon and on the Nikons I've used the aperture is controlled by the control wheel + an function button on the Canon it's one of the two zoom in/zoom out buttons, I can't remember which.  Hope that helps with the Sony.

Apologies for the low res pic, its from my phone. Here's what the curent status of my rig looks like. Its DSD capable, fully balanced, and oh so musical with my modded T1 (Black Dragon cable). Happy listening here!

Pardon the nooby-ness, but what does it mean when something is balanced?

You don't see much TEAC stuff around these parts. How do you like it? Any chance you've heard their dedicated headphone amp?

I did (I missed them) and added the L3000 leather pads...  I'm also on my 3rd pair of SA5Ks and 2nd pair of HD800s...

I have the Pure i20 as well and really think highly of it.  Nice looking rig you got there.
