    Astell&Kern A&norma SR25 MK II - Available November 2021

    I think this pricing for an entry level product is ridiculous. Personally I would pick sony over this any day.

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    So if I want to braid litz cables, where can I get the cables with the clear tubing and really thin gauge? Likewise something close to what alo uses would be great! So if you have a link to a store which sells it don't mind to reply and give me a ping!

    Furutech does have some nice 4.4, but the problems is I really do prefer gold contacts. In that case do you have other ones in mind?

    @Chuck Dee Would you mind to let me in on some of the parts you like specifically? Like y splitter or other parts I was wondering about. I am just too new to shop in the vast market of Ali.

    Alternatives to alo audio litz cable?

    Hello and thanks for dropping by. I find myself able to hear the difference between a linsoul HC-08 and a alo audio regular litz cable. Both 4.4mm termination and same DAP. (Yes, I know it is a $80 difference, but it is what I have to compare.) The $100 price range is a sweet spot, as it has...

    USB DACs comparable to the Light Harmonic Products

    Hey all! I am looking for a USB DAC, or just "transportable DAC" that can match up with the LH Geekout series. I do have a budget of ~300 in mind, and something used is fine too. Not many of you might have been aware of what the LH had to offer since it is already EOL by now, I will list my...

    iBasso DX220Max ****************** New FW! 1.01 for download! 1st Page.

    The card is fully inserted and functioning correctly. It has no protruding parts. Whenever I push it in past the usual mark, it should pop out, but it does not do that anymore. And yes contacts are facing upwards. The spring loaded mechanism is not popping it out.

    iBasso DX220Max ****************** New FW! 1.01 for download! 1st Page.

    @Paul - iBasso I just took the SD out form the slot to transfer some files, and now when I try to take it out, it won't pop out like usual. It just moves within the allotted space whenever I push it in and it doesn't come out. Any ideas to solving it?
