    Apogee Groove Dac / Headphone Amp

    I too would VERY much like to see and Iphone version. That would be heaven when out and about.  I think the idea was for this to work with 600ohm cans, so maybe if they dialed the power back or cut it in half.   I can tell you that this thing produces a lot of heat.  It runs much warmer than my...

    Apogee Groove Dac / Headphone Amp

    With the SRH1540's I am hearing new things again in Amnesiac and Kid A.  I didn't think that was possible, but every time it happens I love it.  This is the clearest window on sound I have ever heard.  The most remarkable thing about this DAC is the sense that there is absolutely nothing but...

    Apogee Groove Dac / Headphone Amp

    Listening to this now, just got it today.  Using M50x and ALAC files.  It is clearly (literally) on a different level than the FiiO E10K + E12a combo I have been using.  It also seems better than the converters in my Focusrite 18i20.  It's really damn good.  Can't wait to try my Shure SRH1540's...

    Shure SRH1540 Review

    Just wanted to say, I won a pair of SRH 1540s from Sweetwater and have had them for a few weeks now.  My signal is laptop> Fii0 E10K> Fii0 E12A>SRH1540.  Or 18i20>SRH1540.  I have quite a few headphones now... (this place...)  Anyway I'm not going to get into the weeds with trying to compare the...

    AKG K702 65th + K7xx (massdrop) Keep? Or Return?

    If a picture is worth a thousand words...     This is my grandmother.  She's 87.  She used to run a dance school in Salt Lake in the late 40's early 50's.  Now I have to pester her to keep her walker with her. She likes a couple fingers of Stoli Citrus and some juice. (so do I)  She sometimes...

    Cleaning IEM's? (Gross Pic Included)

    Kinda glad I didn't see that pic.  But since this seems to be longest thread on this topic, I thought I would share my method. 1. Buy CIEMs with a clear or transparent color (mine are dark "smoked" clear)  this way you can see if there is crud inside the tubes etc.   2. Preparation is key. ...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

            Whoa, don't read too much into it.  Just trying to think of the coolest serial numbers under 2000.   But yeah 7.62mm and 5.56mm are two standard NATO rifle calibers that happen to make cool serial #s (I think) under 2000. (along with a long list of other calibers and model #'s...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    Hmm, yeah it'll be hard for me to look at an unopened box while I wait for a pm that may not come.    But I gotta ship two pairs of phones like 2nd day (or USPS priority) plus $20 which will be probably $60 before all is said and done.  That's about as much as I want to pay for a serial number. ...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    That was my main concern when I got my AKG 702 65th annis.  I was pretty pissed to find rubber bands on such and expensive headphone. However the sound is amazing, they are light and VERY comfortable (with the new velor/memory foam earpads and flat headband. (Ala the K712)   There are some...

    AKG K702 65th + K7xx (massdrop) Keep? Or Return?

    Ok so I guess I didn't read everything...   Jeezus Christ you guys don't mess around.  It'll take me a week to read all that.   I had them boxed up and ready to ship but I just couldn't do it.   I'm going to run them for a while and see if one of these new fangled flat wound transducer gives...
