  1. Jvc Ha Fx34 Marshmallow Kramer Mod

    Here you go!! Compared to a stock phone, this mod makes them brighter and increases upper mids and treble, so its no longer overwhelmed by the bass. If you already find the FX33 too bright or harsh, you may not like this mod. If you find the FX33 muddy, bass-bloated or congested this might be a mod for you. Readers should also note that this mod is not-reversible. First you have to pull off the foam tips. Just gently pull them off with your fingers. They slide off with a little tugging....

  3. Markl Denon Ah D5000 Mods

    ---------------------------11/09 UPDATE------------------------- Please note: I no longer recommend stuffing of the ear cups with Fiberloft and have not for some time (stuffing pads is still strongly recommended). If you are intent on trying it, please be prepared to remove it when you discover the effect is not always positive in all areas. About This Mod This mod is the result of a painstaking (and painful!) process I started some time ago, trying to get the stock Denon AH-D5000...
  4. Frequency Response Of Headphones

    Let's talk about speakers to begin with, their optimal frequency response is supposed to be a flat line from 20 to 20000 Hz. It means if fed by an input signal composed of varying frequencies at the same level (voltage), they will measure the same volume on a dB meter. It has nothing to do with the frequency distribution of the music itself, but merely ensures that the frequency distribution (tonal balance) of the music will not be changed by the speaker. If the music is bass heavy, the...

  7. Blame It On The Game An In Depth Interview With Fab From Milli Vanilli

    An insider’s look at the Milli Vanilli project When the Milli Vanilli lip-synching controversy broke in 1990, I was not surprised. Nor did I really care.  I wasn’t a fan of their music and I had no idea about how the music industry really worked. I believed what I read and saw. And with time, Milli Vanilli completely dropped off of my cultural radar. So it was. Life moved on. Eventually I found myself working in the music industry. Things are not what they always appear to be. Smoke...
  8. What is The Correct Way To Turn On Tube Amps With Headphones

    Speaking of contacting the manufacturers, I got a response back from Jack of Woo Audio. I want to thank Jack for getting back to me in a timely manner and taking time to answer my questions. Anyways, here's his response to my questions regarding WA6: 1) What's the proper way to turn on WA6 with headphones? I ask this because I've read some stuff about it being harmful to the tube amp to turn it on without headphones in? Is this true? So far, I've turned on the WA6 without any headphones...

  11. Rs1 Version Guide

      INTRODUCTION: There's a lot of discussion about the RS1 and its variants lately. I thought it might be nice to have a new reference thread on this topic, with lots of pictures. I don't know the exact year that the RS1 was created, but the first review I've found is the famous Wes Phillips article from 1996. This seems to point to a beginning for the phone in 1995, and the earliest sale date on record (as listed below) is 1995.  Stereophile Review: Stereophile: Grado Reference...
  12. Explanation Of Amp Pre Amp Headphone Amp

    Quote: Originally Posted by Br777 also why are people calling it a pre-amp and what is the difference between an amp and a pre-amp Hello Br777, pcf already answered this, but I'll put it in different words. The amplifier is the device that drives the speakers. Its only role is to amplify a small (line-level) audio signal to create a powerful signal that can push speakers in and out. A pre-amplifier is a device that preceeds the amplifier. The pre-amplifier determines...
