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

    I got the Airpods Pro (never owned airpods prior to this) and I was immediately impressed by the ease of set up and use. Very impressive. The build quality is great except for the tips. I find the tips to feel a little cheap and a little tough to get off (I feel like I am going to rip them)...

    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?

    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)

    Grado RS1i Impressions thread

    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

    Grado RS1i Impressions thread

    Thought I post here but I put them for sale on the FS/FT forum. I am gearing up to sell my Grado RS1i (no button model). They are in mint condition with about 200 hours. They come with the original box. If you are interested, PM me.

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

      Turns out my dad had a 2230, had to snag it. I'm with you regarding headphone pairings with the 22x0 series. I want to say the 2220/2230 prefers high impedance headphones but i'm not positive. My HD800 sound great. My DT770 600 ohms sound okay. I have not tried any of my Grados yet but plan...

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

    Wow, great info guys! I am definitely considering selling the WA7 and WA7tp (and dacmini) for a better dac as an option. Or perhaps moving the WA7 and WA7tp to the bedroom or living room to be used with my home theater for movies, music, and games.    Can someone describe how a pre-amp impacts...

    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

    Audirvana Plus 2.0

    I am not knocking audirvana as I do love it. BUT, is there another program of equal audio quality that offers a few more user friendly features like:   1. Recently Added Music 2. Visual artist browsing similar to iTunes --- Nothing again the "power-user" interface of audirvana. It works and...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    The Sonett is not known for it is bass performance. If you feel the HD800 is lacking in that environment, you will probably want to look at a different amp, perhaps something more Solid-State like (or a pure Solid-State amp) to help tighten the bass up

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I am looking for a Dac recommendation. I currently have a Dacmini which pairs EXTREMELY well with my Grado PS1000 and RS1i but not so well with my HD800. I am currently using the WA7 and WA7tp (tube power supply) as my amp and Dac for the HD800 but am waiting on delivery of DNA Stratus from...

    Chicago Area Meet - Saturday April 25 - Part of the Ear Gear Expo at AXPONA 2015

    I'm pretty sure I am going to attend all 3 days. I live in Chicago so it is easy for me to transport some gear. If anyone is interested, I can bring along some of my stuff. I don't plan on getting a table unless I bring the WA7 and a table is required to set them up. Let me know if anyone is...
