    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Flashing firmware back to 1.81 seems to have allowed me to turn it on again. We'll see.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    My Realiser A16 is getting stuck at the start up screen a lot, I have to keep turning it on and off repeatedly via the remote. It seems to be getting worse and worse. I've heard of others having this issue. Do I have the defective hardware or is this a software issue?

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Seeing as how they survived as a company with the Realiser A8, I'm not worried about Smyth Research disappearing as a company. They never had any real competition for the A8, let alone the A16. Granted it's a very niche market, but Smyth Research completely owns it now. It's unfortunate that...

    Web browser interface would be the most ideal. Being able to control A16 from Smartphone would be much better than using the remote.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Having a personalized PRIR in a top notch studio is a night and day difference. My current favorite is a local studio in Los Angeles, California (where I live). AIX Records. I have a 5.1 and 7.1 PRIR I recorded there a long time ago. They're my favorite profiles. I really hope they upgrade...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I pledged to the Realiser A16 campaign immediately when I saw it. I finally received my Kickstarter A16 (2U Version) this week. The UI and remote are horrific even by 1990's standards. Studying, and I mean thoroughly reading the PDF manual is a requirement. Fortunately Lorr Kramer at Smyth...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Update to a very old post, but I am now using Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. It pretty much checks all the boxes for me and has completely replaced all my other wireless earphones. The most killer feature for me is it's Transparent Hearing feature. It makes them perfect for office use...

    Sale on Made in USA Headphone Cases

    Does the Voce fit in this case? Probably won't fit the Voce due to it's attached cables, but just checking. Probably best to use a Nanuk / Pelican case for transport anyways.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I still have my OG HE-6. I don't miss the old headband style at all.

    I might have to ressurrect my old Velodyne HGS-10 Sub. Maybe a mix of my Crowson actuators and the Velodyne sub might give the best of both worlds without upsetting family members sleeping in an adjacent room.

    Planar headphones for gaming.

    I game with my HiFiMan HE1000. I use an Antlion Modmic with it routed through an Astro MixAmp for chat volume control, an old JVC/Victor SU-DH1 Dolby Headphone processor for surround sound (will switch to Smyth Research A16 when it eventually ships to me), and output the audio to my HeadAmp GSX...

    LG V30

    Yep, the V30 is the perfect size for me.

    HiFiMan Susvara Review: The HE6 is Dead, Long Live the Susvara

    I have not yet, but I'll definitely give it a go when I get a chance in the future. Probably won't be using a speaker amp for a long time, but I can certainly get some quality time comparing HE1000se to the Susvara with pinnacle level balanced output headphone amplifiers.
