    Woo Audio WA11 Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I’ve been using the WA11 for a year now. Such a great amp. It sounds great with all my phones. No fatigue.

    Audio technica 2018 new family lineup: ATH-CK2000 Ti, ATH-AP 2000Ti and ATH-CM 2000Ti

    I would not say "not appropriate" for jazz as everyone has a different bias for sound. The fact is the human ear canal is not a flat frequency hearing device. We all hear differently. What sounds grainy sounds smooth to another, etc. For my ears, I prefer a more pristine and less bass heavy...

    Audio technica 2018 new family lineup: ATH-CK2000 Ti, ATH-AP 2000Ti and ATH-CM 2000Ti

    I just picked up the CK2000Ti at the Tokyo Headphone Festival yesterday. I've only had it a day but I like the sound of these IEMs. I would not use it for acoustic jazz or classical but for pop music, it sounds great. Warm and big bass going deep but clear. Not bright at all and I can listen...

    Comment by 'jazzgene' in article 'Chord Mojo FAQ'

    I use an iPhone with a Mophie Battery Case. The case uses a micro usb plug. Is it possible to use a OTG cable to connect the Mojo to the iPhone with the OTG cable?

    Tube Change/Biasing a Stax 006t II

    I need to bias my SR007tII as the original tubes on the right channel died. I see in the 007tII, there are TVR3 and TVR4. I can't find a schematic for this amp and am trying to find out what these trimmers are? Is setting the DC balance and DC offset with TVR1 and TVR2 enough? TVR3 and TVR4 has...

    Strange about the pop disappearing.  But good to know.

    List of DACs that work with iPad

    I was able to get the iPhone 6 to work with Teac UD-501. Had to use a powered USB hub between though.

    Woo Audio WA-8

    Heard back from Jack. High quality cells are used. Good for 500 full charge/discharge cycles. Must send back to Woo for battery replacement. I am going to get one.

    Reply to review by 'jazzgene' on item 'Yamamoto HA-02'

    I find the HD650 to match well with the HA-02.

    Where is the "real sound" within the 'high-end headphones' category?

    This is true and can be said at every stage of audio reproduction.  Every microphone sounds different and as someone in the business of music, you choose to your taste, really.  Some really love the sound of a Shure SM57 on electric guitar amps...  I don't and prefer condensors.  So it goes.  ...

    In Vertigo - Advice needed - What is the next step? - LCD-3 / SR007mkII

    I don't find the SR-007mk2 and SRM-007tII to be dark.  The bass is better defined and the other instruments are crystal clear.  I listen to mostly jazz and classical music.  I master jazz albums professionally and also play the guitar at places like the Blue Note here in NYC. So I pretty much...

    Stax SR-007 for accurate audio engineering work?

    I wouldn't mix with phones.  Use it as a check but not to rely on the phones for getting there.  Using high quality monitors in a proper room is the way to go in my opinion.

    The Stax thread (New)

    Just got my 1st Stax setup and am loving it.  Should've gone Stax long time ago.  Sounds great!  SRM-007tII and SR-007mk2

    The Stax thread (New)

    Thanks.  I am new to Stax but not new to critical audio listening.  Looking forward to hear what the hoopla is all about with electrostatic phones.   Quote:
