  1. WireWorld Pulse Mini Jack Male to Male Cable PUM (1.0 Meter)

    5.00 star(s)
    Introduction So it's a cable.  It's copper.  It's coiled into a helix pattern apparently.  It's $36 +shipping and it most definitely works.       Construction  Quality, flat, with nice chunky plugs that are easy to connect.  It's purple.  I like purple.    Sound I wasn't expecting this cable to make a difference but the minute I plugged it in, I heard more soundstage and a bit more clarity.  Things were separated and detailed.  The bass was across-the-board impactful and boosted.  This was the experience that converted me.  Along with the...
  2. Hifime Sabre 9018 USB DAC

    4.50 star(s)
    This little DAC punches way way way above its weight.   I fell deep into the audiophile hole about a month ago, waiting for our 2nd son to be born.  If I could be so bold, I went through a rebirth.

CAVEAT - when amped!  Get an amp, please...
  3. Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Closed Studio Headphones - 250 Ohms

  4. Bravo Audio Ocean

    Folks!   Just found the joys of tube audio and have to say this little guy opened my ears.  I did a lot of research here and on a few other sites and bought 3 NOS tubes.  I realised that with my renewed interest in headphones and building a dual speaker and headphone capable system I needed a tube in there somewhere.  I don't have the cash to splash out for a full on tube preamp or amp.  Finally I decided on 3 tubes: a Mullard, Telefunken and Radio Technique.  So far the Mullard is my favorite, warm and detailed opened up the sound, creating a...
