    D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions

    Mine is being used as a DAC only. After I swapped the dac chip to WM8471, it sounds way to nice not to use it.

    Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread

    To my ears, I like this cable a lot over the stock. Never liked the stock cable and used Mogami or Norne's silvergarde instead.

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Took out the SZ2K's today. Was messing around with the tiny DDhifi dac and modded F35 RSA amp. I forgot how good this beast of a headphone sounds.

    Swapped opamps in RSA Intruder and F35 lightning

    So I blew up the stock opamps inside my RSA intruder by accident. I had the gain on high, and the volume on max and plugged it the source which was also on max. One pop and it was dead. RSA said to send it in, but I thought about it for a while and ordered four AD8397ARDZ opamps from Mouser...

    FiiO AM3D-FiiO Releases the THX AAA Powered Headphone Amplifier Module AM3D

    I have the AM3E, AM3D, AM3B, AM3A and AM3. The difference between the E and D is very small. To me the D has the edge over the E. But you will be perfectly happy with the E, if you never knew the D version existed. I'm currently using the E with my IEM's. s

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    Zdac for the win! I love mine still. Same level as my modded Ibasso D7 sidewinder, which sounds the same as a Mojo to my ears. I've heard giga dollar dacs and the majority don't sound any better vs my "cheapo" dacs. One Parasound Zamp in bridge mode = one channel in headphone "balanced"...

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    I did mention there are gain controls on the back of the Zamp's. The Zamp's have a headphone output in the front of it if you wish to use it. That headphone output is wired in parallel with some resistors for current limiting and "load". Just like any big speaker amp, Receiver amp with a...

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    The cheapest option to do the LCD2C classics justice, is the a Parasound Zamp V3 amplifier and run it from the speaker tabs. 150 Dollars used for that amp. This little amp can produce the proper lows that many so called (overpriced) desktop amps lack. The Zamp amp has adjustable gains on the...
