    Dock for iPhone to bypass internal dac

    I'm aware of the camera adapter but is there a dock that has this all in one neat package? Basically I want to use my iPhone as a source for centrance dacmini, so lightening to USB A to USB B into my dacmini. I found this mess (attached photo) on the internet for reference

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

    So my d1100s crapped out on me. They were horribly built plasticky headphones (cracked at cup joints and other areas), on top of that, the ear pads faded away and peeled off. My question is, is there a similar headphone out there with the same comfort (they were around the ear not on ear) and...

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    Thanks, fellas!   I've been rolling with my Denon D2000s for a long time and felt a nice change of pace would be nice with the more open design of the HD600s.   I'll do a mini-review when I score a pair!

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    So I got the 1 ohm mod a long time ago:   "Headphone Linearity" Mod (1 Ohm output) DACmini CX stock unit comes with 10 Ohm headphone output impedance. To our ears, it offers the most musical, transparent sound. Users have described it as "warm" and "analog-like". However we can lower...

    Any opinions / reviews on the new McIntosh D100?

      agreed.  $2500 isn't cheap, but for McIntosh you'd figure they'd try to charge 5000+.  I love the look of their components but they're so overpriced for the most part that it's comical.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    I think so. It has a premium sound and requires NO amp. How can that be beat? It has a very full size sound to it. Now, they don't sound like the refined full sized big boys, but as a potable it has a meaty, fun BUT clear sound. Cons: Not for vocals or bass light recordings. Some rock...

    Vote: DACMini Vs. HA-160D

    I can't speak for the Burson, but I've had my Dacmini now for a year and I can't part with it for even a day.   It makes music sound exactly how I'd expect it to sound and coming home after a long day of work and having a long listening session to decompress is one of the things I do not...

    K702's or Schiit Asgard first

    Quote:   Do you mean rock isn't or just metal?  I wanted the Q701s to have an alternative to my D2000s when I listen to female vocals and/or rock songs.

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    Quote:   I used to own the 225s.  I got tired of them after a while, same for the 125s.  I think the problem is I don't like on ear headphones.

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    I was looking for a Yin/Yang kind of comparison.  I use the Denons for my Punk/New Wave/80s stuff, but I was looking for something that pairs better with Rock and Vocals.   Any advice?   Anyone know where to score them cheap?   Thanks, in advance.

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    I think I spied some DacMini marketing stuff with the T1s used for photo shoots.  That's a positive sign as any.     I'm thinking of adding a headphone more equip for vocals.  Anyone here rocking the Senn 600/650s?

    Quote:   depends on the IEMs, but for the most part, I'd say it's overkill.  I'm not sure why people made a big stink about this amp and IEMs, personally if I using IEMs as my primarly headphone, I'd probably buy a smaller amp, fine tuned for those types of things.  That's not to say it...

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    Quote:   I like the Denon 1100 a lot.  It may be a bit bassy but it still sounds great and feels great on your head, while being pretty good at blocking noise.  I have to say, they have to be one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned.  I know a lot of people here will...

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    On ear are the least comfortable headphone you can buy.  I've sold every on ear I've ever purchased.
