    Worst recorded/Mastered Albums

    Need recommendation for a LOW sensitivity can in the $100 range

    You might want to check if you can adjust the gain on the dac with a jumper or something, a lot of equipment has this.

    Tyll, maybe this has been discussed before, but have you thought of normalizing based on these curves? As far as I understand it, now you are compensating for the ear canals FR, but the psychoacoutics are important too.

    Nice summary. I recall the debate about the headfi cable test, I'm happy it happened in the end.
