    Sennheiser HD598 Amazon Black Friday deal $99.99!

    The deal's gone, I guess they ran out of stock.

    Fulla (by) Schiit - News, photos, thoughts, impressions, etc.

    Insanely excited for this. I've been around the block, starting with IEMs and graduating through portable cans into full size, but I somehow never felt compelled to get a portable amp. I do now...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    My question was more on terms of the quality of the DACs in these older CD changers - it doesn't have a digital out, unfortunately. I considered opening it up and trying to hack together a digital out, but I don't have the technical knowhow. Thanks for the insight, however. Since I ripped the...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Quick question for you guys regarding my setup - although its not receiver related, I figured you guys would be the best place to come for advice. I recently came into a JVC 200 CD changer, a xl-mc222bk, along with a bunch of CD's (all of U2, REM, and many others) for free. Since I mainly use...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Thanks for the warm response guys! To be completely honest I wouldn't know anything about the "classic McIntosh sound" considering my experience, but maybe I'll get to experience it later on (probably after college and whatnot). Till then, I'll be happy with what I've got, and keep an eye out...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Yeah, I'm sure there are better receivers out there - in fact, the man who runs the repair shop I went to let me listen to a Sansui G-9000 today, and it was quite an experience. Every time I take another step in my audio journey I'm amazed that there is, in fact, more clarity and better sound to...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Hey all, its been a while since I've posted in the thread, although I've been dutifully lurking since my last appearance. After months of not using my MAC 1900 for fear of damaging the poor thing (overheating problems), I finally found the money to send it in for repairs. I get it back tomorrow...

    If the output transistors are the big silver ones, then they're not hot at all. The boards near the heatsink/power supply are the only ones putting out heat. I'll order deoxit and cooling spray asap. Thanks so much, I'm definitely gonna try to fix it.

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Hey guys! I'm interested in getting into the vintage scene to replace my lepai, which is driving my Pioneer bs22's and soon a Logan Martin Dynamo 300. And, to pair with my LCD 2 as a bonus! How do I go about getting into this? From what I've seen, buying locally is the most effective option, but...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Mine came directly from Headroom, without an adapter. According to them, the packaging varies.

    HeadAmp.com - Black Friday and current headphone deals! (HiFiMAN HE-400, Audeze LCD-2: 20% off, Sennheiser)

    OP already said that its not the 500. Hence my use of incredible deductive skills to determine that it will, indeed, be the 400.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    The 2 has a very distinctive sound signature. And just because a headphone is technically superior doesn't mean that it will reproduce that sound signature properly, which can make a sound signature sound worse; beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

      I think thats a personal choice. Some people have regretted moving from the LCD-2 to the 3: its a very distinctive sound signature.

    Oppo PM-1: A New Planar Magnetic Headphone!

    I agree for the most part, but my question is: has anyone verified that the pictured packaging is how it will be sold? How do we know that its not just pretty packaging for the trade shows?
