    Denafrips Sub-Brand or Rip-off? The case of Musician Audio's Pegasus R2R DAC

    ( RE: " ....Sandu claims that the Dac Pegasus is noticeably better than Ares II?" ) 'Sandu this, Sandu that'. He said, did, spoke and blabbered some more. WHO IS Sandu? Experience, age, qualifications ? Zooming in on one (questionable) source is a recipe for going nowehere fast. The dialog...

    LM4562 vs OPA2134 vs [ ? ]

    I asked a simple question, and your reply is quoting somebody's book -with over "200" tests, yet you can't point to ONE that shows your assertion that: " ...If a person can hear a difference in electronic circuits, there are tests that can easily measure that difference." ? Name one. pj

    LM4562 vs OPA2134 vs [ ? ]

    I see. You say: " ...For the very small differences likely to be heard between well chosen op-amps, your memory will start to fade in 10 seconds." If such suggested 'small' differences are noted, it hardly represents a difference at all -or rather, not a very consequential one. In which case...

    LM4562 vs OPA2134 vs [ ? ]

    sl424: You offer some cautious advice. It's always wise to pay heed to such concerns as raised. Yet, I hear this so often, that I must take exception on your assertion that: " ...... and then losing all audio memory of what it sounded like before." Whoever spoke to this -put it into the hi-fi...

    What's the best USB audio cable for the money?

    Lol ! Yeh, Lardass cables are pretty crappy -from your remark I note it (Cardas) hasn't changed over the past 30+ years ! Perhaps the Cardas 'Clear' may be more accurately referred to as Lardass Crap/Creep? Oh, Cardas Smear ! pj (P.S> sorry Cardas users)

    Modi 2 and 2U discontinued, Modi 3 now live.

    LOL. What you're missing is the ilogic of the Schiitsers; for such experience they apparently have, the manner in which they conduct business (arrogant and /indifferent) is invisible to them. They clearly don't "see" the illogical nature of this: selling (clear-out no less) at the same price as...

    REVIEW: Comparison of 5 High End Digital Music Servers - Aurender N10, CAD CAT server, TotalDac d1-Server, Auralic Aries, Audiophile Vortex Box

    austinpop: Indeed, Roy's contributions are priceless- very insightful. Precisely what one would expect from commercial audio mag's -that's proven NOT to be the case. Far more hand-on experience/expertise can be garnered from site/writer's such as we have here. Indeed, such (instant) valuable...

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    Thank you. Oops, I did not realize (English not native), you write very well. I thought perhaps it was simply a 'typo' -so I thought I'd make a joke. That failed. Miserably at that. Sorry. pj

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    Yes, remove the 'Green' (response) pad: the elevated response I'll bet considerably impairs lower-midrange/vocal (and associated instrument/electric bass guitar) clarity/articulation. In fact, there is so much critical signal information in this range of lower frequencies that demands accurate...

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    NIce acquisition. However, should be able to get the 'can' out of your head, I recommend you position the headphones ON your head instead ! Are the 'HD-250 Linear' Sealed/Open-Back ? peter

    Battle Of The Flagships (58 Headphones Compared)

    Better hi-fi seeks superior resolution (clarity) ultimately resulting in much improved signal articulation, such as 'layering', definition/articulation, nuance retreival, etc. You may be referring to this new-found clarity (headphone design SQ) as a "loss of (analog) richness", when in fact...

    Hi Freedoo: I can't seem to get these weasel-business TLS theifs from my mind -nor more importantly your money ($1,500. USD???) So when you say: " .....Overall TLS is very polite and responsive, ..... TLS ignores me now, with a $1500 deposit still at TLS .... " .... using terms such as...
