|Other Audio Equipment
||Use my Nuforce Icon 2 as a speaker amp mostly, driving some vintage Design Acoustics bookshelf speakers with a cheapo sub on the line out. That's it. All my other vintage stuff was given away or failed on me.
||After I started reading Head-fi, I actually ported the cups of and did the Grado style rear driver hole opening mod on a pair of Skullcandy Ti's that I had bought before I knew better. Incredibly, it worked. Improved bass response, better clarity and soundstage. Took them from what I would now call about a 1.5/10 to at least a 4/10. Anemic waste of space to functional in about 30 minutes. Still crap compared to everything else I have now, but I only had my AKG K81s at the time, they were hurting my head, I was waiting to receive my Martin Custom-Grado SR125i , and I had just read about 200 pages in the Grado mod threads.
