    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?

      late update, but I finally got around to buying these not too long ago.   They sound fantastic.  I'm really happy with them ... BUT ... I feel the Denon version sounded slightly better, mainly because the cups were deeper and fit around my ears better.  I feel the deeper cups gave the bass...

    Well it beats paying 110 for those Denons when I bought them new only to have them fall apart a year later. I can swallow a 50 dollar loss easier.

    Helps immensely. Thank you! The build quality on those Denons were atrocious. I'll look into one of the aboves.

    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...

    Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread!

    I couldn't find a thread about it, but how are the new Denons?   I still listen to my D2000s nearly everyday.  After pairing it with Centrance DacMini withe 1 Ohm mod, I haven't looked back.   How do the new ones compare?  If I had the money, I'd get my D2000s modded with wooden cups and such.

    Quote:   woot!   glad you enjoyed it!     I was a tad bit overweight back then, kind of hard to believe, but In a few months I will have had it for 2 years and I still use it.

    DAC and AMP for D7100

    I was wondering, can you make the font bigger so I can read it more clearly?

    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...

    K702's or Schiit Asgard first

    Quote:   Oh, I see.   Most of the time I consider true rock all the stuff that came out during the late 60s up till the late 70s.  Stuff after that is a bit rougher and different.     I guess what I'm trying to say is, although I love the bass and drums on my D2000s, I'd like to...

    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.
