    I can assure you that there are sound quality differences between sources. The best way to distinguish the difference, that counts, is by listen - it's what music and high fidelity is all about :smiling_imp:.

    dCS Bartok

    I am fairly sure that most people that are interested in Bartok also know that it’s a three in one elegant box solution and are calculating with that in mind.

    Switching to a dedicated server doesn’t appear to make a good audiophile switch like the Melco S100 unnecessary, not even with *Taiko Audio Extreme or *Innuos Statement. There are many different things that can affect the sound and there are also many different ways to connect the NAS, server...

    HIFIMAN HE-R10 - First Closed-Back Headphone From Hifiman

    I guess we are in minority here 🤩. The same thing happened when Hifiman launched Susvara, people got furious and resort to name-calling, arguing pricing, QC and conspiracy theories. Today: Susvara is now considered by many one of the best headphones ever made.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    Maybe the hybrid power amp Aesthetix Atlas could fit your taste. The standard version can be find used for 4000 Euros. The Signature and Eclipse Atlas is better but also cost more.

    HiFiMan Susvara

    To get 3dB higher SPL you need 2 times the power, to get 6dB higher SPL you need 4 times the power. “A common misunderstanding when it comes to audio is that doubling power (watts) will make it sound “twice as loud.” Doubling the power (or cutting it in half) actually provides very subtle...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    I definitely like it better without the big cheesy Abyss logo.

    Which headphone is the King of Planars?

    There is no king, long live the difference. Below my impressions: I don’t like Meze Empyrean, muddy and soft sound (+ for excellent finish and fit) I love Audeze LCD-4 in the right audio system (- for weight + excellent finish) I have not heard the Abyss Phi 1266 TC, but I didn’t like the Abyss...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    “If you have an amplifier with power tubes in the output section, then you cannot operate it without speaker load connected. Simply put, in the tube amp output section, the transformer performs the task of transforming the speaker load to a load the tubes want to see. For example, on an amp...

    Audeze LCD-4

    When people says that the LCD-4's mid-range is recessed they usually mean the upper mid-range and lower treble (2-6 KHz) this combined with a strong lower mid-range. Compared to other TOTL headphones I believe it is somehow true, even if the dip is often exaggerated. The real question is if it’s...

    It is not the size of the room that is the problem, it’s that the shape of the room is square.

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    It’s obvious that you are complaining about the price of an amp which you have not heard and compared to other amps. But let’s leave that and take a look of the actual financial loss of selling a used AIC-10 compared to an Audio Research REF 75se. How much do you get for a used AIC-10 vs REF 75se?
