    Comment by 'kodreaming' on listing 'RAAL SR1a + Schiit Jot R'

    I do have Jotunheim, but I have been using it with my other headphone, if you are interested in a combo, we can chat.

    Second owner. Just don't use it enough to justify an expensive system like this. Buyer pays for extra shipping. I will cover the PayPal fee. Based in Bay Area, happy to do a local transaction, also open to trade for a Aeon2 Noire + Cash.

    Raal Ribbon Headphones - SRH1A

    I have had these for a while now. The sound is certainly beyond amazing, but I really struggle wear this for more than 30 minutes, the main discomfort is that the headband squeezes my head a bit too tight. Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Another minor complain which is likely due...

    Dual headphone stand?

    I Know woo audio makes a nice one but I want something a bit cheaper but still has a quality look. I tried cheap ones from Amazon, they are just not designed for big cans. Maybe something from Etsy people have experience with?

    dealing with paypal duplicate charge

    Just document for the sake of others if you ever get stuck in a situation like this... Well, one thing I learned in this case is, instead of filing dispute under Duplicate Payment, I should have filed this simply under not receiving item. This seems to be too complicated for PayPal support to...

    Really want to try this now. All these TOTL headphones using planar really only provide marginal "improvements" to the last generation headphones from 10 - 15 years ago. Only meaningful upgrade I had is Stax and hopefully this one too.

    You either need a special amp or a speaker amp for this. You can't just plug in to your computer.

    Have good DACs become considerably cheaper in 20 years?

    How does switching cause loss? In my naive mind, you have exactly same setup and all you do is unplug the cable from device A and put in device B (and make sure the audio level is the same)

    Have good DACs become considerably cheaper in 20 years?

    Haha I know. But wonder if enthusiast with no monetary incentives don't do more of this. Guess people don't want to burst their own bubbles.

    Have good DACs become considerably cheaper in 20 years?

    I just don't know why audio reviewers don't do all single blind test. Problem solved...Guess that will shrink the entire audiophile market by 70 percent.

    Myths and realities about Chinese amplifiers from Opera Audio .

    Can someone provide a tl;dr? I have no idea what this thread is about and what's with all the Russian text? I thought it is about poor quality of a Chinese product?

    Similar amp to Ragnorak 2?

    I am planning to get a new setup that can be used in a turntable setup + speaker + headphone in my office. Ragnorak 2 (fully loaded one) seems to hit all the use cases I am looking for. Just curious, are there other products that are similar to this one ? Want to evaluate all options I have...
