    Astell & Kern Junior (AK Jr.) Impressions Thread

    I think the Cowon Plenue or Plenue 2 is your best bet. I’m probably gonna get one once my JR dies. It is a great bare bones player without all that bells and whistles crap, which you are paying way too much for.

    that is why there only 120$. can’t expect much for a price like that I feel.

    Continental Dual Mono Tube Rolling Thread

    Man. Not a lot of offers out there for portable tube amps. If you have a CDM or any other portable tube amp I’d hang on to it. :)

    NEW - Campfire Comet and Atlas

    hey man. Yeah I was asking myself how much better could a KANN or KANN Cube be in terms of sound quality. I think not much better only different. I have had my JR for almost 4 years now. Still works nice and I don’t overload the external memory, so the UI isn’t as buggy. Of course the Atlas’s...

    NEW - Campfire Comet and Atlas

    God I love my Atlas’s. Very simply I’m using an AK JR with them and it is quite a fantastic pairing for on the go listening. The quality of portable gear has gone up so much in the last 5 yrs. I couldn’t be happier. Maybe I’ll upgrade my DAP next year, but for now I’m pretty happy with my travel...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    yeah. honestly this is a beautiful thread and it has a lot to do with the Z7’s being a giant comeback for Sony in general with in the Headphone market. The Z7’s made Sony Competitive again and allowed them to really take off. I still love my Z7’s. No intention to ever sell them. Great mid-fi...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    Hello Z7 family. I found a great live recording that was actually released this year (2019). :) it is Simple Minds “Live: In the City of Angels. “ you can get a 4 cd set of it on Amazon for under 25$ ! Anyhow. What a great recording. Huge impactful bass that is audiophile grade and the...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    awe yeah!!! Violator is an incredible album. It is a desert island take for me. I have the dvd audio version (24/96k LPCM, 5.1 Dolby / DTS) and the original 1990 recording (not the 2006 remaster). The XC’s bass extension and PRAT is awesome with all DM music. I love some great reward as well...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    I guess you slept on her def side. Lol. ;) CustomCans U.K is good and as mentioned by another the Grado extension cables are a steal. :) consider getting balanced because that amp offers a balanced output. Between balanced and standard output there is no better it just depends on the amps...

    Campfire Audio IO

    I purchased the IO’s back in May of this year and they were the first IEM’s I’ve ever bought. I feel this IEM really educated me a lot on what I may like (consistently) from an IEM. One thing I can say is driver Burn In is definitely needed and very real with the IO. The sibilance really cut...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    Yeah they leak a bit, but it helps with their wide soundstage. Definitely not as annoyingly loud as the hd 800’s, so I’m grateful there. Hey my friend. You got it! I absolutely love them. Very smart purchase on my end, especially for how passionate I am about my musical sanctuary. Haven’t...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    You got it my friend and in my experience I think you really get what you pay for in the world of audio comparably throughout the different tiers. For example meZe empy’s Are 3000 roughly while the focal utopia and Audeze lcd 4 sit a good 1000 bucks more. I believe there is a reason for that...

    AUDEZE LCD XC

    It is amazing and yet so fascinating how we need to keep the entire soundchain elite in order for the audio chain to “sound elite.” If there is one thing that I’ve learned it is that when you play the audio game you can’t cut corners somewhere within your audio chain. The XC’s really scale...
