    Best streaming service?

    Best is YouTube Music, because it comes bundled in the cost of YouTube Premium. Once you have had YouTube premium you will not go back. (I mostly listen to FLAC local files, so don't require lossless for my streaming service, which is more about convenience in various use-case scenarios like...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    I'm using for exercise, so wouldn't want to use my good IEMs with this, but certainly considering this or their earhook BT adapter for non-exercise use. Anyways, I got the Senn TWS M2 because it was on sale for about $150 off, and unlike the other options is something I can walk into a store...

    IEM for metal music and hard rock - ultimate solution

    I was hoping the B&W and M&D models wouldn't be tabled, going to be hard to get a hold of here. :/ MW07+ better for metal than the MW08? I suppose at this stage nobody able to comment on comparisons, looks like the MW08 only just starting to become available now. How are the Sennheiser TWS 2?

    Let's talk Bluetooth Speakers

    So after seven years of good service my Loewe Speaker2Go is starting to become a little less reliable. It's not really the speakers fault so much as the fact that my partner frequently uses it for work and she is a little notorious for not looking after electronics. She has dropped phones in...

    So I got mine last week, finally got to use it this evening (after firmware update). I thought I would use the black cable supplied with the S1, however kept having connection issues (phone battery relatively low, could be part of it, although switching to the supplied white cable fixed it...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    Thanks for the impressions from those who have received theirs already (although my order shipped a little earlier than many, I'll be waiting till Monday here in New Zealand for mine). The side by side shots with the S1 were informative, for some reason I had thought it was quite a bit larger...
