    COS Engineering H1

    COS ALGORITHM AND DSP COS’s proprietary algorithm with a linear-phase delay FIR can up-sample original data to 176.4K or 192K, and this massive computation is handled by a powerful 3648 MMAC/second DSP. BUFFER AND RE-CLOCKING H1 stores digital data in a one-second buffer before converting to...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I'm using a Woo Audio WA7 (1st generation) to power my HD 700's with the upgraded Electro-Harmonix gold-plated tubes and the solid-state power supply.  One of these days I'll need to get the tube power supply as well as get my amp retrofitted to the newer version.  That said, it's a very good...

    Audeze LCD-X

    Hmm I don't know.  I have only spent a bit of time with the Elear, but it was very clearly designed to be a warm headphone.  The LCD-X is designed to be pretty neutral.  I don't want to say that one is better than the other, but I really don't think they were designed to do the same thing.

    Awesome!  Make sure to put them on some proper stands to get the most out of them.

    New Grace Design m920 DAC/amp with DSD decoding

    Oh man it bothers mine as well!  Yours are closer than mine at least...

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    Most pro audio people don't care about specs to that degree.  They don't care about (or usually believe in) fancy cables and other "audiofool nonsense" as they would put it.  If it sounds good to their ears and translates well to other systems, they're generally happy.

    New Grace Design m920 DAC/amp with DSD decoding

    I believe Here2rock was referring to the m920's headphone amp, in which case, he is correct, it is not a balanced amp.  The DAC section does have balanced TRS outputs on the back though.

    Audioengine A5+ Review

      Yeah, that is a problem with every pair of Logitech speakers with a subwoofer that I've listened to.  There is no way that you're going to get 2 (or 5) good satellite speakers, a good subwoofer, and decent electronics for the price of a set of Logitech speakers.  They are going to have to...

    Audioengine A5+ Review

    Yes, these will be a very noticeable upgrade.  I've never heard a pair of Logitech speakers that I've liked, including the Z 5500 (although I haven't heard some of their newer models, not that I expect much).  It looks like yours don't even have tweeters, so that alone is a big place to...

    Audioengine A5+ Review

    You don't have to worry as much about synergy with a DAC than you do with an amp.  A good DAC is a good DAC and should work well in any system as long as it's not outclassed (as in the weakest link in the chain).   I would recommend getting a DAC that has an output that doesn't have a volume...

    T.H.E Show Newport 2016 June 3-5

    I'll be there all three days, though since it is shortly after CanJam, I tend to spend almost no time looking at headphone equipment and focus on loudspeaker setups.

    CanJam SoCal 2016 Impressions Thread (March 19-20, 2016)

    Alright, time for me to finally post some impressions.  I've been insanely busy at work and have had a bit of a cold, so I haven't really gotten around to this.  At this point, I doubt I have anything to add that hasn't already been said, but here are some quick impressions:   Cavalli Audio...
