    People regularly ask about where to buy CD quality or hi-res downloads (legitimately!) so here is a list of sites I know of. Please post a comment if there are any I've missed.

  6. AKG K1000 - A collection of information and links

    This is a compendium of K1000 knowledge that was sitting unused in the catacombs of head-fi.  It was originally posted by krmathis and I thought I'd ressurect it here for everyone's benefit.   Original thread here.  Main posts follow:   Here you find information, links to reviews, impressions, recommendations, and more for the AKG K1000 headphone. I have been missing a central place for all this, so I decided to create one. Hope you find it useful.  Thanks to 'Richter Di' for his...
  7. iBasso DX100 FAQ

    As there are so many repeat questions in the DX100 thread, yet the thread is growing at an amazing rate, burying the answers, this F.A.Q. on the DX100 has been created.     Firmware:   The latest firmware is available from iBasso.com here  v1.4.2 (ZIP compressed file).   Previous firmware here -- v1.3.7 (ZIP compressed file).

  11. Comparisons of the LCD-3 and the LCD-2 Rev. 2

    I've spent the better part of two nights going back and forth between these two headphones. Just my personal thoughts made from the notes that I took...two cents as they say....likely worth that.   As a bit of a backdrop, here are my thoughts on the differences between the R1 and R2 LCD-2s:   [URL]http://www.head-fi.org/a/comparisons-of-lcd-2-rev-1-and-rev-2[/URL]     Ergonomics/Aesthetics Both headphones look like they’re part of the same family with some distinctions (kinda like the...

  13. Comparisons of LCD-2 Rev. 1 and Rev. 2

    With the death of the massive LCD-2 thread, I thought maybe a wiki was a little more appropriate: So I’ve had an evening with both my LCD-2 revisions and here are a few thoughts... Ergonomics/Aesthetics Upon first glance it is very easy to dismiss these two as “identical twins”, but upon closer inspection there are a few subtle differences. First off, the wood on the Rev. 2 is a lighter shade than my older LCD-2s (purchased last September) and the finish of the wood is a little more...

  15. Sennheiser Hd4 8 Modding For Newbies

    So why did I create this thread? I recently mustered the guts to open up my HD438s to do some modifying, so yes I'm fairly new to modifying. I suppose this guide could help other newbies too. The methods in this thread have been covered in several other threads, but there was no thread dedicated to the modding of Sennheiser HD4*8 models so I thought I'd share.   The internals of the HD418, HD428, HD438 and HD448 are very similar, so I believe these mods will apply to all four headphones....
