    The Compass Thread (New)

    No offence taken, invisiman . My gripe is with the moderation on here, rather than yourself. Still annoyed with it today, TBH... ~Phewl.

    The Compass Thread (New)

    Just to add... this really doesn't look to me as if it's drunken behaviour bad enough to warrant banning? http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f46/sa...6/#post5839009 http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f5/tia...ml#post5839006 http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f5/com...ml#post5838997 Though the thread I...

    Safe for DAC to burn-in 24/7?

    Yes, it's safe to leave it on. Though I'd try not to leave it unattended for the first couple of days, just in case something isn't quite right. ~Phewl.

    Amp Issue Involving -=Germania=-

    SPORTS BIKE riders out there?? Show us what you got!

    I started learning on a CG125. After 10 minutes the instructor put me on an ER-5. Passed my test, and was out on my VFR750 the same day(bought it a few weeks earlier). Used it every day for over 3 years(in all weathers) until an old lady wrote it off. Replaced with a Triumph Daytona 955i. I...

    The Stax has a pass-through on one input(maybe more?), which is how I use mine. Compass DAC-out --> Stax input 1 Stax input 1 passthrough --> speaker amplifier Sorted.

    What's up with the page numbers?
