    SOLD: Drop + Hifiman HE5XX $180 shipped

    I've had these since the release date. I have a small head and these don't really fit well. I like the sound though. There is a slight paint "scratch" on the metal ear cup holder seen in the last picture. It is the white line on the edge of the ear cup holder in the center of the photo. This...

    SOLD - Audio GD Master 9 - $780 shipped

    Hey folks. I have been selling my headphone rig and cans to help fund upgrades to my speaker setup. So I am letting go of this thing. This is one of the best headphone amps I have heard. Perfect for long listening sessions with any genre without fatigue. Mates beautifully with recent AKGs...

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    Yep thats what I had. I used the CI Audio Transient MK2 for usb to I2S conversion. You will probably find a ton of my posts in the old "Thoughts on a bunch of dacs (and why sigma delta sucks)" thread.

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    Well I used to have the Master 7 and the Yggy beat it, that was acss vs xlr. My Master 7 did not have the much lauded dsp upgrade though. The Yggy actually sounds better (with Audio GD stuff) using RCA outs as the XLRs are a bit too hot for Audio GD preamps IMHO.

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    That just made me want to keep my Yggdrasil. I'm entertaining getting a R2R 7 because I own a Master 1, Master 9, and Master 3. Although the Yggy + Audio GD make a heavenly combo.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

      Of course Schiit can do whatever they please but they eventually caved on the whole remote thing. This actually reminds me of the whole debate over schiit not giving the Ragnarok a remote.  Something about how complex it would be and how it would affect sq.  But now the next Raggy will have a...

    This makes me even more interested to hear a Master 7 version with the new modules.

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    Being a DS hater for the most part I rather like the 1704.  Over the past 10 years Ive owned something like 4-5 dacs that used the chips from companies including audio gd, lite audio, monarchy.  All have suffered to some extent from somewhat rounded bass, slightly rolled off highs, poorer...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

      You could sell the black one and probably make more from the sale than you would need to buy a new silver one.  Then get a silver Yggy to match.   I don't know, I have had a crap load of black components so I kind of welcome any non-black ones.
