    Effect Audio cables thread

    Hi all, EA and I have decided to part ways, so my time here has come to an end. It has been a pleasure to dive back into this hobby and be part of this special community again. I've always been passionate about cables, so it has been great to work for a company that makes such quality...

    Effect Audio cables thread

    ^^I don't know who this guy is but he sounds totally awesome. You should definitely listen to him and buy like, a ton of EA cables.

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Honestly, I think we should all make fun of Ranfan for not being able to afford a proper $5K iem.

    Oh I don't think there's a single person on this thread interested in buying any of these iems.. As you might have noticed from the last seven pages, the whole point is kinda just to collectively rant :D

    I completely understand. For your consideration, I will be starting a crowdfunding for a new Ducati motorcycle I have been eyeing. Checks can be made over to 'Flinkenick's Moving Company'.

    I think you guys are underestimating how much Gzregorz dislikes reviewers : ) He put up a notice that they will not deal with reviewers, and I can assure you those are words he lives by. I certainly don't have €5700 in cash lying round, so don't expect anything from me :D

    On the tweeter or the Erlkonig? For the tweeter, I don't really understand why such an established manufacturer as Sony stoops to such claims for marketing, nor who they think they are fooling. People that have no idea how frequencies work will not be impressed by a 100 Khz claim, and people...

    Sammy is being a bit cagey about it, it seems he had a dealer but nobody bought anything so I'm not sure he'll send an Eden soon as the production of the drivers is slow. Guess it is not happening anytime soon then. The Eden's are waiting for you as soon as you move over / have free time, along...

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    So as it seems we're gently moving back from profound world-threatening matters to unnecessarily expensive audio equipment, I'll be trying something different but mostly not so different this week : ) My A&K got lonely, so I found it a companion. I can already decisively say that when...

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Active shielding is when the shield of the cable is connected separately to ground, like by using the additional 3.5 in the pic above, or the fifth pole of 4.4. Ah I see, yes I missed that apologies. I think you are underestimating how little of an expert I am on this :D I'm going to tag...

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Alright let me start by assuring I am absolutely no expert on the matter either. What I know I know from the guys at Music Sanctuary, and they had to explain it three times when I got the Venom ; ) I assume the Venom was originally designed for the AK players, to separate the ground by using an...

    The DITA Twins: Fealty and Fidelity

    I wouldn't say the Twins are warmer than the Dream, because they have an upper treble peak which improves their clarity and makes them a bit brighter. The Dream has an articulate lower treble, but the overall tone is not so bright, where the Twins have a more even clarity throughout their...
