    Reply to review by 'irishnutter' on item 'Kennerton Thekk'

    John, if you haven't already, you might want to try the optional Kennerton pads. They do provide just a bit more bass presence. Still nowhere close to Empys but a nice improvement.

    Cayin iDAC-6 - Review tour (USA only for now), impressions, discussion

    Yes, I've sent them emails. I couldn't get older versions to work either. I have a feeling the issue is with the actual install process where it doesn't work like it used to. I haven't tried it but I'm guessing the current driver still works on my old laptop. I ran into the issue after buying...

    Cayin iDAC-6 - Review tour (USA only for now), impressions, discussion

    I had the same issue and reported the issue to Cayin around March 6th. They are supposedly working on a fix. I was told the updated driver would be available in April, then in April I was told it was in QA in April and would drop in May. And now it's June. The last time I asked for an update...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Thanks for the detailed reply Luckbad.     How would you say they compare in terms of midrange presence?  I don't like when vocals get buried in the mix unless that's the way it was recorded of course.     Also both look to be of similar/high build quality?     Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Hi all, I just joined headfi but l am a long-time audiophile.  I had a pair of Stax decades ago and currently have an ATH-M50x that I use with a digital grand piano but wanted to get something a bit better to get myself back into higher-end headfi.     I had been looking at the Final Audio...
