    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I've been reading the posts regarding the T1 2G's mini-jack connector with interest as I have a pair of Toxic silver headphone cables that I would re-terminate for the T1 2Gs. So, the mini-jacks on the T1 2Gs are NOT propriety connectors? If so, any recommendations for top-shelf pair of...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Reading the last few posts on the V800 thread, Fried said:   "Out of a sudden by the end of 2014 they discontinued the production of the chips and the software support …   We, as well as many others, had been left outside standing in the rain."   So, does this mean that V850 will REPLACE...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Q: Is it possible to bypass the volume control?   A: Putting the volume control to full (OK, my answer is a guess. But, it's what you should do on a Mac when using it's TOSLINK output connected to a DAC, perhaps it's the same for the digital volume of the V850)

    New Sennheiser models on the way in 2015?

    I was thinking how Sennheiser make unannounced mods to their products during the product cycle. For instance, the HD650 has received quite a few changes over the last few years. Perhaps the amps and, in particular, the HD700 are going through similar tweaks. The retailer might be aware of this...

    New Sennheiser models on the way in 2015?

    Hmmm. I wonder if the company is updating their existing lines and clearing out the old stock.

    DITA - The Answer (Truth Edition).

    Well, that is an excellent explanation of why Dita went down the Van Den Hul path and I thank you for it! Like many many decisions relating to audio, especially electronic design, things are rarely simple / black or white. Instead, each area must be measured and accounted for in the final...

    DITA - The Answer (Truth Edition).

    I've only read through the first dozen pages of this thread, so please excuse me if someone has already discussed the following: are the Ditas comfortable? Looking at the pics, there seems to be a large amount of metal to have hanging off something as sensitive as an outer-inner ear. Too clunky...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Yes - the Violectric V200 and the LCD-2 is a great match. Neutral and powerful - the V200 gets the best out of the LCD-2s.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    I second the Violectric - the V200 with the optional on-board DAC or, if your money will stretch, buy a V800 DAC. The V200 is neutral and powerful and the optional on-board DAC is decent. The V800 DAC is much better than the optional on-board DAC - versatile, compact and sounds terrific.

    Magnepan Mini Maggie Desktop Speaker System

    I had a trawl through the Head-Fi site and I can't seem to find any user reviews of the Mini Maggie. JazzFan - can you post a review?   From the magazine reviews and from comments posted on this site regarding other Magnepan models, I gather that the Mini Maggies could be inefficient and...

    Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes

    Thanks for the tips on the Pure Music player, Rdr. I know that SACD is only hanging by a thread, but is that also true of it's DSD underpinnings? A company told me recently that Korg are discontinuing its DSD capable recorder. In the lower end of the Pro market, that leaves just the Tascam unit...
