    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I thought I'd explain why I'm returning my Mojo and buying a Hugo.   While the Mojo can be fantastic with some music and the exceptional timing is pleasing and low fatigue, with IE800s I find this is spoilt by overly warm low-mids and elevated bass, making it frustratingly hit-and-miss...

    iPod Touch Sound Quality is quite bad.

    Quote: but the counter-sunk headphone jack is a beast to work with Er - yeah. NONE of my headphones or earphones except the supplied iBuds fit into the slot on my iPhone either, and the Cotton Dock doesn't work...

    October 2007 UK Meet Impressions Thread

    Did anyone who went to the Manchester meet NOT immediately order a Slee Solo when they got home? I just paid for mine but they seem to be extremely busy - not betting on delivery much before the end of the month. Bizzel - good to see you're following through on your conclusions from the meet

    Mac OS X Leopard Up-to-Date Program Questions???

    Quote: I've installed Leopard on six of my machines. Only six? What about the rest of them?! I installed Leopard yesterday with the default (upgrade) options. It takes about 60 seconds to go through the installation questions, then you can just leave your computer for an hour and...

    Final Upgrade - Sound card suggestion

    USB sound card -> optical (toslink to toslink) -> Beresford TC-7510 MK6 -> RCA -> Little Dot MKIII -> Sennheiser HD595 Seems like far too many boxes for the easy-to-drive, forgiving, not very detailed HD595. When I had HD595s I used them as follows: - Laptop --> Total Bithead (via USB)...

    Have You "(Radiohead's) In Rainbows"?: Impressions thread

    Does anyone else have Jigsaw Falling Into Place on repeat at the moment? The background vocals are so enchanting; I love the rhythm and warm sound of the track. Really stood out on the album to me from the first day I heard it.

    October 2007 UK Meet Impressions Thread

    Quote: I had no idea that the headphone stand, designed and for use with the jecklin floats, had been employed for use with all of those other headphones. Some of them look a little stretched over it, eek. Me neither - but look on the bright side: now we've all got 10 megapixel...

    Senn's HD 595's arrived!!!!!!!!!

    These things are beautiful headphones and I could not believe how comfortable they are! Agreed! Incredibly comfortable - can keep them on all day. Don't be tempted to turn the volume up too much on bassy tracks, or whack bass up on the EQ at highish volumes. Myself and a friend have blown...
