    Games with best sound design...music and sound effects?

    Kind of old school, but for me, Diablo I is the staple for audio atmosphere.  Walking those dark tunnels and chambers and hearing the devilish but perfect soundtrack is amazing.   I got my first pair of Stax Gamma earspeakers this weekend and am currently gathering ideas for atmospheric...

    Stax SRD-6 + Bravo Audio V1 + HRT Music Streamer II setup possible?

    That sounds reasonable.  I presume the Bravo Audio can be fed to the T-amp to still get the tubey sound out, correct?  Or will this introduce unnecessary noise?   As far as the inputs on the back of the SRD-6, do the clamps and the fat wire do the same thing (provide two ways to get the...

    Bravo Audio V1 Review - The Little Headphone Amp That Could

    Part I: Bravo Audio V1    When I was 14 I remember listening to the Lion King soundtrack CD on a Magnavox Hi Fi system.  I still remember how emotional the music was.  A month ago I remembered that experience and I got my CD out.  I don’t have the Hi Fi system anymore so I plucked it in my...
