    Recommend a fanless mini PC with Windows 10 Pro preinstalled?

    From the ad it looks you don't get Windows at all, just a license key. So... ;)

    Help with connecting CD player to DAC, Schiit stack

    I understood you and there are enough good DACs with coax in that if a CD player with coaxial out is your major source I would recommend getting one of those DACs. I haven't used converters of any kind except for a well-engineered DDC, I'm against gimmicks.

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    I cannot listen to Joni Mitchell out of my 800s (not S). It's like fingernails on a blackboard or icicles through the skull. The same albums out of my TH900mk2 are amazing. So yeah, agreed. At the end of the day, everybody hears differently, most people have different combos of gear (I think...

    Help with connecting CD player to DAC, Schiit stack

    Hi, welcome, I don't have any experience with converters but in theory at least, if your main source is a CD player without coax out you should look for a compatible DAC. There are intermediate devices called DDC (digital/digital converter) which do format conversions and this is an option but...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Passive aggressive claims that everybody is on your side have no effect on reality. Bottom line, people should not be discouraged from buying or at least trying these wonderful headphones just because of FUD regarding harsh treble, V signature etc.

    Well I will bet you a case of beer that the fiber you get for $2.99 when you buy an optical cable is barely good enough for 192 KHz ;)

    The Closed-Back Headphone Thread (Plus Comparisons & Reviews)

    Yeah man. The news is getting worse. In the Nimbus thread they wrote they totally stopped production because they can't get parts.

    Oh! I have been wanting one of those lately but couldn't find a NOS Austrian sample. Aren't those over ear?

    Resistance of cables; pics, comments, and links

    Probably the worst measuing cables in the history of headphones are the stock HD 25 steel cables. Not only do they measure up to 8 ohms, but both sides of the cable aren't even close to equal. Capacitance is huge also. If there was ever a case for aftermarket cables, the HD 25 is the poster...

    TOTL Satisfaction

    This happens to me when gear is too resolving. I can't listen to LCD-3F or HD 800s or TH900mk2 and do anything else. I hate it, but I love it, too :)
