    AMB Delta1 Input Impedance Calculation

    Hello folks, I'm trying to purchase components in order to build an AMB Delta1 attenuator. However, I'm not certain what I should set the Zatt value to in the calculator. I'll have three inputs within the amp. The first will be the Gamma1/Gamma2 stack. The second is a Phono pre-amp. I've...

    Any old fart head-fi'ers still around?

    I'm still around. Just redesigned my M3 amp assembly to include AMB's digital display and I/O selector.

    Audeze LCD-2.2 wood cracking and fastener failure

    Hi All, I was working through the process of trying to replace the yoke and fasteners on my LCD-2.2s, when I noticed a crack in the wood ring that surrounds the driver I was trying to repair.  At that point, I decided it was best to send the whole headphone in for service, as it is still under...

    FS: BNIB Astell&Kerns AK Jr (Price Drop)

    Hi All, I have a brand new, never used Astell & Kerns AK Jr that I want to sell.  As you can see in the pictures, the wrapping is still on the box. I bought it as a packaged deal with a pair of LCD2.2s but, I already have a Gen 1 FiiO X5 that works well for portable duty.  I am asking for $400...

    RWAK100 - iriver AK100 mod by RWA

    So, it is claimed that the RWAK100 has the same sound characteristics as the AK100 but, everything is "better".  I'm a bit concerned that these characteristics are going to pair poorly with the Momentum, the Vsonic GR06 and the HD650, particularly in comparison to the DX100.  Has anyone here...

    Internal sound card for music, movies and gaming? Xonar DX?

    Hi guys, I need to replace my EMU 0404 with something suitable for music, movies and games.  I was going to pick up an Asus Xonar DX but, I need to confirm that the EAX emulation actually works properly in-game, and does not product distortion when listening to any audio source.  Does anyone...

    emu 0404 alternative

    I have the same problem with my PCI EMU 0404.  In addition, the card sometimes "locks up", producing a constant tone during simultaneous audio playback and hard drive access.

    iRiver iHP-140

    Hello, I've got 2 (two) iRiver iHP-140s in my hands.  One is in very good shape, with minimal use, while the other is in fair shape, bordering on poor.  Both work well and have remotes that function fine but, I can only seem to find the charger for one.  I'm was about to recycle these but, I'd...
