    24 vs 32-bit sound

    I looked up some of the popular high-end DAC chips on the market to see the noise performance based on their specifications. The Effective Number of Bits (ENOB) of a DAC, or the noise-free bits that a DAC can resolve, can be simply calculated from the dynamic range specification on chip...

    calling all tucsonites!

    Rank the Headphones that You Own.

    I recently got AKG K702s and I'm very happy with my purchase.   1) AKG K702 2) ATH-A700 3) ATH-ES7 - I think these sound better than the A700s, but I can't wear them too long without discomfort 4) Shure E2c 5) Koss KSC75 6) Sony MDR-v6
