    Which company makes the best car speakers?

    Yes. The Focal Be car audio speaker systems with their own passive crossovers are ever so slightly better than the Dynaudio system speakers (when volume matched) with their own passive crossovers, but Focal’s are 4-5x the price now; they used to be 3-4x the price.

    Which company makes the best car speakers?

    Back in 2000, I put over $17K into a system in my 2000 Toyota Solara car (which was stupid, I’ll never do that again because the only time I could truly enjoy it was when I wasn’t driving). I had a custom built $1100 alternator from an older gentleman who did Alpine’s show cars. It put out 292...

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    By the way, I just bought the best T5 screwdriver you can get, a Wiha Torx PicoFinish T5x40mm Precision screwdriver (part #26737) and it DOES NOT FIT FIIO'S SCREWS FULLY. Some barely fit, some don't fit, some fit partially, it's a freaking joke! Fiio should change their Q5/Q5s markings to say...

    Planars: Ok, I finally get it.

    $1800?? Where have you seen a used pair of LCD-4 for $1800? I have a pair with custom blood wood ear cups (and an LCD-3 with “cinnamon bun” cups, LCDi4, iSine20, EL-8 Ti, and Mobius). The LCD-4 is the best I’ve ever heard. It’s a $4K headphone. Who would sell it used for $1800 unless it had...

    Woo's New Flagship WA33

    In my custom Beta22 I have Cinemag balancing transformers for the single ended inputs and in my opinion an active conversion would likely sound more accurate. I use my system fully balanced so it’s not an issue for me. If I needed to use the unbalanced inputs for something there’s nothing...

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    Amazon for the Q5s at $299, and FiiO directly for the module as they were the only one selling it. They notified me the day it was ready and I was already the 34th order. Check your inbox.

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    Nightmare with FiiO, where do I even begin! I don’t have time to post it all now, but I’ll say this. They give you 4 custom made screws with the Q5s and 4 with the THX module I just got but haven’t tried yet? Why? Because out of the 8 screws and the 2 in the unit, I have 3 good screws left...

    Review: Bellatone Reference Cable for the HD800

    I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here but there are many reasons why, and it’s very late here and I will address the specifics if you send me a private message. I’m not here to make excuses; only tell you the facts. To make a long story short, my Grandfather died two days after...

    Audeze LCD-4

    You'd think so, right? Not so. Getting the LCD4 was the first chance I had to listen to my system in 2 years. No time. I hope things change though.

    Audeze LCD-4

    I'm just saying, people here get real jumpy. I wrote a positive review because I absolutely love my LCD-4 and immediately I was accused by the first person who read it of working for the company. That's just how people are here. I was just giving you friendly advice. :slight_smile:

    Without a doubt.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Lol @ the Valium. Apparently none of those DAC/amps have enough real power for these phones, as my pair have 95% as much bass as my LCD-3 which was slightly over the baseline. I'm hoping we aren't seeing another fluctuating driver issue, because then opinions are hard to give, period.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Have you heard the new version as of February? Or not? It is very different from the original release in October. Opinions provided based on the old diaphragm should be taken with a grain of salt. (And if you have, I must wonder what kind of system you listened to them on to feel the midrange...
