    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I expect some surprise and disappointment as far as sound quality goes, however, it is the ease of use and integration that will win me over. I have Sony WH-1000XM2 for plane rides so the Airpods will be for on the move music listening, phone calls, etc. I also constantly switch between devices...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    I will be picking up the Airpod Pros tomorrow. I also have an order in for MW07+ but I might have to cancel if the Airpods impress me enough

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    What is the consensus on the new MW07 lineup? I have been holding out on Wireless headphones (mostly because I do not want to purchase airpods) and so far nothing has fit the bill (cough Sony call quality issues)

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    I will give it a try as well. I am not expecting to hear that much difference in my Volvo XC90 w/ Bowers & Wilkins via Carplay. I will give it a more deep test on my home equipment. I am rooting for Tidal but it is always nice to save money.

    Amazon launches Music HD with lossless streaming

    What is the consensus so far of Tidal vs Amazon HD? I mostly use Tidal for music at home and while driving via android auto/car play for lossless music in my car. It works really well. It sounds Amazon is worth a try, but I believe I saw something about its streaming algorithm needs work in the...

    I know! I know! I can't believe I am doing it. Maybe no one will want them and I will HAVE to keep them

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    I am doing some gear juggling and trying to figure out what can fit and what might need to go. I am waiting on a delivery of a Thorens turntable with a Maranz 2230 receiver (which has a very respectable headphone out) for my records and I am also waiting on delivery of the DNA Stratus for my...

    PS1000 Impressions Thread

    Has anyone had bubbling issues with the chrome on the PS1000 cups? I have a bubble spot on mine and it is very annoying to look at

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    I will take a look. How can I tell if it "loose"? Should I just reseat it and test?

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    I suspect the answer is one of or all of the tubes are going south but I will ask the question anyways..   Yesterday the WA7tp got pretty darn hot, hotter than usual after about 2 hours of music at regular listening levels. I decided to turn the amp off to let it cool down for a few minutes...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread
