    Audeze Deckard - class A amp, USB DAC

    Other than the fact that it works natively through a lightning to USB adapter (Or Camera Kit, whatever they call it now), I have no other comments yet. I have an iPod Touch at work connected directly to the Deckard through USB, and it sounds great. It does not charge the iPod at the same time...

    Audeze Deckard - class A amp, USB DAC

    Received my Deckard today. I am quite happy to announce that, so far, it seems to drive the K1000s. No promises, but they get loud enough for me on the High gain setting. I am not disappointed with the purchase even a little bit right now.

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    So a couple days ago I mentioned that I was getting a splitter 3D Printed by shapeways. It was the first design I made and wanted to see what type of quality I could expect. Well, today I got antsy and decided to design an XLR connector shell that should work with the Switchcraft XLR pin section...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Both of those will be too thick to fit inside standard 550 cord, even if you found 750 cord it would be too thick to fit inside. I have seen that at least one person managed to strip the jacketing off the canare L-4E6C and was able to pull the shielding through 550, but it was apparently very...

    DIY Cable Questions and Comments Thread

    Does anyone have success using the internals of the Neutrik 4 Pin male XLRs in the body of any of the other (Oyaide Focus 1/Furutech non-Carbon) shells? I don't like the design of the Neutrik connectors but it seems like nobody else makes an attractive 4-Pin. Also, has anyone done a custom...

    4N but 5N 7N Silver Cable.?

    4N, 5N, 6N, etc refers to the number of "Nines" in the purity of the material. 4N is 99.99% pure, 5N is 99.999%, 6N is 99.9999%, etc.

    This is not directly on topic, so I can make a new thread in the main forum, but does anyone have success using the internals of the Neutrik 4 Pin male XLRs in the body of any of the other (Oyaide Focus 1/Furutech non-Carbon) shells? I don't like the design of the Neutrik connectors but it seems...

    Can/Does the type of potentiometer on an EC Balancing act effect the overall volume or output?

    So the answer is no. A pot of any type will have a little resistance at the maximum volume setting, but with a decent pot this should be negligible. The pot's rating refers to its maximum resistance, usually 10k ,20k , 50k, or 100k ohm, with an audio taper. I have the ECBA running the stock...
