    This may be helpful to those looking at the Adorama deals. If you have an Amex card, check your Amex offers. Adorama has $25 off $200 in two of my accounts.

    Glad you are enjoying it. If and when you are ready to try another set of tubes, this is the one that is often recommended for this amp: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07J671QV3/ These have less distortion than the stock tubes, so it does clean up the sound a bit. To me that translates to...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    I believe that is an anniversary edition that was released by the company. It is not an end user mod. Only 500 units made. Anniversary Edition

    Recommend a good DAC under $300 used

    I would consider moving up the Topping line, a D70 or even a D90. For me, the next step up from the D50s was the RME ADI-2. However, the extra features the unit offers (Parametric Equalizer, etc.) was the driver behind the purchase. They seem to go for around $700 used so it is a bit outside...

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Apologies if this has been covered already. For those that own both, was the Elear a stop-gap purchase until you can purchase the Clear or are they both worth owning? I am curious how often owners upgrade to the Clear after owning the Elear.

    Are there any over-ear headphones that have a good passive sound cancellation?

    For what it is worth, the DT770 Pro and the Custom Studio I own have the velour pads. My comments were based on the velour pads. I believe only the non-pro version ships with pleather pads.

    Hifiman Sundara (HE400i upgraded, around $500)
