    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    Yeah, the thing that throws me off is it works completely fine straight USB to my Holo Audio Spring 2 DAC. Right now I have the Singxer SU2 in the chain but im running , ASDM7EC, ext2, DSD 256 as of right now. ASDM7EC is really hard to run. With an i9 9900k and CUDA, you can only do DSD 256. So...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Ive had the V280 and the V200. Its not that the amp is bad, just not my thing. Ive ran them both balanced and SE. With SMSL, Schiit, Holo Audio DACs. I know theres a couple guys in some of the headphone discords that agree with me on them been perhaps overly bass heavy

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    The Pendant and Glenn amps were the two tube amps I wa slooking at. It's a shame i havent been able to hear them as ive heard good about both. I could also keep the LP and look into tube rolling it.... at this point maybe that is the best option

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Hey all, any tube amps that stand out as being better to you than the Liquid Platinum. My amp is the last part of my upgrade chain and trying to decide if I should stay with the Liquid Platinum or not

    Help Deciding on a DAC/AMP

    Those IEMS are very very easy to drive, especially relative to full-sized cans. You won't get any better sound switching from the Fulla and don't let anyone convince you otherwise Cheers, Jonathan

    WHAT IS THE BEST BALANCED SOUNDING IEM UNDER 60-70 DOLLARS ?(best iem with the most balanced sound signature)

    i think its tough in that price point man. A lot of crap stuff either too bassy or not enough/ too metallic sounding timbre. I suggest you save another $60 and get the Etymotic ER2. That's the most neutral headphone I know of that's cheap. Cheers, Jonathan

    Recommendations about Audeze lcd-4

    Hey, So ive heard all the headphones you listed. I prefer the LCD4 over both of them. LCD2 is okay, 800S is good but too source picky. LCD4 is a great headphone and a lot of people end game. I liked Focal Elex more than 800S so i sold it off. LCD4 will be a better overall headphone than the...

    Left wanting... more!

    Im running my Scarlett at 192kHz with no problems. Elex is the best choice under $1,000 in my opinion so good call! That's weird, Eitr should def be there hmmm. Also, I just remembered i cant recc the Lyr 3 because the design choices of the circuit are questionable. Also, when turning it on...

    Lumin Dedicated Streamer

    Its a mix between isolated circuits and OS dedicated to audio reproduction and higher quality parts. You usually get a fanless, noiseless streamer, with a cool OS only for audio streaming and you usually get a nice power supply that's linear and pushes out some good amps. I believe its the combo...

    TH-X00 Upgrade

    Your best bet for basshead headphone is the TH-900. Its bassier than the 900 and has a signature fitting what you want! 909 is not an open version of the 900. Sound sigs are different and the mids seem bloated with bass bleed. Cheers, Jonathan

    DAC Brooklyn + versus ...

    Brooklyn DAC is a good DAC with a lot of features you won't find on other DACs. If you want MQA, headphone out, preamp, and ability to hook up a turntable, then its a good choice. If not, there's a lot of other cool options in the price range. Chord Qutest, Soekris 1541, Holo Spring Level 2...
