    Rockna Wavelight

    This is a good point. Adding the rockna streamer to wavelight...will be painful..to my wallet :)).However, Wavelight does have something up its sleeve. It is a very capable pre-amp and if you have a power amp, this comes in handy.

    Rockna Wavelight

    I also managed to test the HydraVox DAC: https://headmania.org/2020/07/28/audiobyte-hydravox-dac-review/ . I will post a detailed comparison on my next WaveLight review. Until then, While HydraVox is overall more precise, having faster transients and overall better clarity when it comes to...

    Rockna Wavelight

    I have owned a MSB Analog Dac since 2014. It was the oldest component in my system. I have borrowed a Rockna Wavelight over the weekend. I switched from MSB to Wavelight. I love it. A few words: impressive slam & dynamics, really vibrant textures, incredible voices, really good details, overall...

    Electrocompaniet ECI-6 Stereo Speaker Amplifier

    That is a fair question. I am selling it because lately I don't have time to listen to my speakers so much (10 months old newborn). I have another amp that I am using and while not as exciting as eci-6, it's good enough for the amount of time spent with the speakers. And if I were to think of...

    Sennheiser HD820

    Personally, I think they compare to any flagship out there. I actually compared HD820 to LCD-4Z, Sony MDR-Z1R, HD800, HD800S, ATH-ADX5000 and the only ones that managed to be in the same ball park was LCD-4Z. Between LCD-4Z (or even LCD-4 from memory) and HD820 it's not an easy decision, as...

    Sennheiser HD820

    The guy from the left is very close to my experience with HD820. While the term "colored" is subjective, I think that even if HD820 might be colored because it has a mid bass bump, I also considered HD800(s) to be colored because the lack of bass and because of the treble peak.

    Audio-GD Master 9

    Excellent amplifier. Really hard to beat it at that price. Listened to this amp while it was kicking the ass of considerably more expensive hp amps.    Read my whole review here:    https://headmania.org/2014/07/19/audio-gd-master-9-review/   @citraian is a good friend.  I wholeheartedly...

    Hifiman Edition 6 Headphones

    In seems that you haven't heard the right speaker system....Believe me, I had similar opinions a few years back, but after hearing more speakers systems and starting to own a few, I started to change my opinion, once I got to hear good speaker systems.    Now that doesn't mean I don't like...

    Hifiman Edition 6 Headphones

    Exactly! If you have room for speakers you are better off with a good pair of speakers in the price range of >4000$ than a similarly  priced headphone.   In my opinion headphones shouldn't be chosen as a last resort, meaning that you shouldn't buy a good headphone only if you don't have space...

    Hifiman Edition 6 Headphones

      I agree. The prices of the latest flagships are too much and it became somewhat of a trend. I always wanted the headphone industry to evolve, but not like this. Everytime a better product is made, the older one keeps the same price and the latest model is 2x price or something like that. In...

    Audio-GD Master 9

    Don't own it, but heard it at avstore.ro .

    Audeze LCD-4

    I think that Mojo amplifies it decently, meaning that I can get away with mojo and LCD-4 from time to time and have a quality audition. However, you will get more slam, bass depth, dynamic range, soundstage with a more powerful amp. Let's not forget that power isn't the only thing that a good...

    New Dragonfly Black and Red Discussion

    I think you took it too personally. I think that there is a reason why we haven't seen any dacs/amps combos with headset functionality. I think it's quite hard to integrate a mic input on a headphone output without greatly interfering with the SNR, THD, etc, sound quality in general. Now if...
