    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    I do not have my Etys anymore but they, along with the UE Super.Fi 5Pro, were the best in-ears I have tried. Flash forward a decade and I'm REALLY satisfied with the $60 Fiio EX1 gen2. They aren't Etys but they are satisfying for their cost. Miss the sweet midrange of both the UE and Etys but I...

    Best recorded albums of all time?

    I'm a big fan of all his singing and I like all of the albums but I listen to 'Till the Sun Turns Black' most. As a recording/producing achievement, I think 'Ouroboros' is pretty great, though. It's obvious Pink Floyd inspiration extended beyond the musical composition, imo.

    Best recorded albums of all time?

    A newer entry that blows me away (especially the LP through my system) is Ray LaMontagne - Ouroboros.

    Kings of Leon... Yay or Nay?

    I'm going to guess that's not much love here for them, lol.

    Physical Media Or Download.

    I have some LPs that sound soooo good and only a few CDs that are WOW but really I just don't have the time and energy to be an audiophile anymore. Streamed music has come so far and I have access to so much music driving around in my truck with Spotify or Amazon Music. It's not critical...

    Physical Media Or Download.

    I've gone full-circle and now appreciate both. I started amassing a CD collection after high school and several hundred albums in I decided to start buying LPs mainly to play on the 60's/70's stereo gear I was buying/fixing/selling. I bought a few hundred vinyl albums but only a handful that...

    Kings of Leon... Yay or Nay?

    For some reason I wrote them off a long time ago but I hear a song once in a while that has me pull up an album for a listen. Listening to 'Mechanical Bull' right now. Something I might throw on when driving several hours right before I start to fall asleep and switch to Pantera - Vulgar...

    Impressed with onboard sound of new Haswell PC

    I just picked up a Dell box mainly for my wife to be able to work from home. I threw my FLAC collection on it and setup Foobar the other day and when I plugged my Grados in I was pleasantly surprised. This onboard audio sounds much better to my ears than the old Realtek 97 audio on my old PC...

    Journey From Headphone to Vintage Audio

    Head-Fi really opened up Audio as a hobby to me. I started off here after I bought a Rio Karma and was looking into new headphones, as many people do. For a long time I was content with my nice IEMs and a portable music player. Then I got the itch to build a "PC as Source" setup with a dedicated...
