    Hifiman Ananda

    Are any of the new Hifiman headphones (below $2k) worthy successors to the HE6se? I still use that headphone but I need to be teatherd to a 60lb SS vintage Amp to get it working. I wouldn't mind something comparable to drive with the KANN. Any recommendations welcome.

    Astell & Kern KANN - DAP with Massive Storage & Battery

    Quick question about copying Playlists. I have an MKII and just got the KANN. I have an identical card with the same library in the KANN. Trying to copy Playlists set up on the MKII to the similar folder on KANN. Files are M3u, files move but result in 0kb file. How does one move or copy the...

    HIFIMAN SuperMini Impressions Thread

    Thanks, I looked at the site but could not find a 2.5mm TRRS to 3.5mm TRRS option. Is this something they make custom? How do you order custom?

    I have never heard of these "Tektro Auriga", Hydraulic disc, 160mm Have you had your bike shop look at them? They may need to be bled. I use shimano XT and had the entry level Maguras previously (tr 200 I think) The shimano's are much better both in stopping power and modulation but I never had...

    New Sony high-end DSD gear, including a USB DAC

    I have to say that the ability to burn CD's in FLAC right to the drive of the HAP-S1 is killer. I am now going to need to attach an external HD as previously I have not converted all of my CD library because it was such a hassle and only had my most listened to music there in digital. This...

    Astell & Kern Junior (AK Jr.) Impressions Thread

    Just got mine. I want all my music in DSD, it sounds as close to new vinyl as I have heard since........ .... New vinyl? This combo with the grey magnum drivers rocks,just enough power. I can't imagine it driving planars though. At least not my old ones (LCD-2v1 and HE-6)

    OPPO HA-2 Portable Headphone Amplifier/DAC Discussion Thread

    Mine just got here this morning. I haven't had mc time to listen it yet but have tried it out with my Note 4, iPod classic and old touch, as well as the Sony A-17. All work. Now if I can make it wok with my cyanogen S3 and iPod 5.5 that will be a bonus. Just because pictures make a thread more...

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    My new office rig. Slightly modified HE-400 (focus pads and added original HE-6 grill foam) Powered by miniwatt V1 and the line out on x1. This sounds way better then it should for the price.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Just got a pair to mod. On first listen there seems to be good potential here. (I have a fully moded HE-6). Changed the pads to Dennon D7000, opened the grills. But that made them too "hot". Changed the grills to the old HE-6 with foam and "stuffing", less sibilant but still needs some...

    The Centrance HiFi M8 thread

    Add one more to the list. I can confirm that the Sony A10 series players work with the M8. You do need this cable which is $50 but this way you can have a fairly portable solution which holds up to 192gb, plays FLAC, ALAC, and potentially does hi res (need to test). Plus the battery of the Sony...
