    Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000 Headphones

    I have a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000 headphones I would be interested in selling.   I am the first and the only owner of these magnificent headphones, and I have put around one hundred to two hundred hours over a stretch of one to two months.   The Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000...

    Audio-GD NFB-2 & NFB-3 Delivery & Impression Thread

    Quote: The filtering techniques used are dependent on the chip's implementation and since the NFB5, NFB2, and NFB3 all share the same DAC chip (the WM8741), the output after filtering should be similar.

    Audio-GD NFB-2 & NFB-3 Delivery & Impression Thread

    Quote: It doesn't add what already isn't there.  For example, when transcoding from MP3 to flac, you have essentially not degradation of audio; it is just less efficient.  Same with oversampling when the source material is only 44.1kHz, you don't lose audio because the 96kHz would just be...

    Audio-GD NFB-2 & NFB-3 Delivery & Impression Thread

    Quote: The flavors are simply different implementations of filters that the Wolfson DAC chip provides.  Ideally, flavor 7 is the most true representation of the original analog signal, but compromises between the various benefits of either soft-knee or brickwall filters.  You really...

    Audio-GD NFB-2 & NFB-3 Delivery & Impression Thread

    About a third of the way down of this page it says: http://audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/NFB3-2011/NFB3.1EN.htm   The first thing is the filter, next is ACSS/RCA (1 for ACSS, 2 for RCA), then input (U for USB, C for coax, O for optical).   RTFM

    Cables: Measuring the differences

    Quote: Of course they would be different.  If I were to take an incredibly high purity copper insulated wire with a relatively small AWG, braid dozens of these wires together and use premium solder, the materials mean nothing.  Instead, I would have a cable with incredible capacitance...

    Cables: Measuring the differences

    Quote: Well, what you're trying to measure is the differences that the cables make, correct?  So, you measure the HD650 with copper cable vs HD650 with silver cable.  Subtract all of the same components to minimize possible error when setting each individual component up.  You're left...

    Cables: Measuring the differences

    In this thread... We have people who don't understand science or the scientific method trying to prove otherwise.  I understand the OP's intentions, but there really is no point to this.  To each their own.     . . .   I spend all day in a lab looking at and analyzing data.  Why am I...

    Do "I" really need a headphone amp?

    Quote: Stomp is a bit of an exaggeration, but the improvements you would be able to hear would be marginal really.  All those things that I mentioned previously (i.e. crosstalk) are barely noticeable as is. However, if you were to take a high end measurement setup and compare most generic...

    Do "I" really need a headphone amp?

    Quote: The E9 is an excellent budget amp.  However, proper expensive amps will stomp it.  Lower output impedance = better bass response, proper ability to provide both sufficient voltage and current while remaining distortion free, yaddayaddayadda.  The FiiO is a good starting point...

    A Young Man's Journey into Headfi and Impressions (Warning: Very Long Post)

    Great read! I've gone through many headphones trying to find a sound that I really like and finally came across it when I received a few vintage orthodynamics.  After spending what seems like forever damping/modding them, I'm almost completely content with their sound (YH-1's and Fostex...
