    Unique Melody Remold Impressions Thread

    Haven't had to come to Head-Fi for years now after being finally satisfied with the purchase of my Miracles. That was until one of them broke after being trodden on at a concert after being knocked out of my ear (hence my need for a remold). To say I am devastated would be a understatement!  ...

    Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread.

    LYR: Faint, staticky, high-pitched noise issue

    Quote:   Err... you do realise you really should be using a phonostage in the equation don't you? It will sound **** without one... Read up all about RIAA curves and you will understand why.

    does Sansa CLIP have a true line out?

    Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes

    Quote: Not my post but here we go:   Here are some of the non-snake-oil reasons you asked for: 1. Automatic sample rate switching (as you noted). Briefly, iTunes has to be closed, Audio MIDI reset, and iTunes then reopened in order to play a track with a different sample frequency...

    Unique Melody Miracle Review & Impressions Thread

    Quote:   And I suppose you think I am somehow responsible for you getting yourself in trouble with the Staff here at Head-Fi? You did that all by yourself buddy. If you have not already I suggest you have a read of the posting guidelines or even the terms of service, maybe then you will...
