    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I started on a Honeywell 200 back in 1974. Learned COBOL and Fortran on that machine. From there on to Control Data 6000 series. Did not get a PC until the 80286 era. Man do I feel old.

    I am totally with you on this. Loki does a phenomenal job. You'll have to pry it out of my cold dead hands.

    Thebit OPUS#2 Dap - out September/October 2016.

    Improving the capacity/size ratio in batteries is a good thing, as is decreasing the power needs of the DAP. However, I think incorporating a cell phone battery which is of small size and high capacity is very doable. I prefer devices which do not encourage planned obsolescence. I tend to...

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    Patience is hard. I struggle with it every day. I'm tempted by the new Acoustic Research DAP, but I am determined to wait and see what the DX200 has to offer. It is a tough market, and I don't purchase items like this very often. As long as my current player hangs on until the DX200 is...

    1MORE Triple Driver IEM vs HiFiMAN RE-400?

    I recently purchased the 1More Triple Driver IEM and have been listening to them for about two weeks. Overall, I think they are a great value. They give a superb selection of ear pieces, so you are bound to find a size that seals well, and a good seal is important. I listen to a lot of Trance...

    CanJam SoCal 2016 Impressions Thread (March 19-20, 2016)

    I do not remember hearing those. I did listen to some of the Final line, and while they were good, the 1More was in a different league.

    CanJam SoCal 2016 Impressions Thread (March 19-20, 2016)

    I'm with you. My first CanJam as well. I was super impressed with the people. Everyone I talked to, exhibitor and attendee alike, was friendly, kind, and gracious. The high end equipment was staggering. I am much more interested in the value end of the spectrum, mainly because my ears just...
