    New from Garage1217, the solid-state Project Polaris!

    That's a pretty good idea actually, 2nd market might be the way to go for this. So those 2 are far above the rest of the line up? I am trying to avoid climbing the ladder as it were and go for their best one in one shot haha. Learned it the hard way that it works out to be cheaper in the end.

    New from Garage1217, the solid-state Project Polaris!

    Thanks for the reply, that is very reassuring to hear. Aside from the ember, which I am already smitten with, what are their other standout amps? Polaris is their top all solid state amp right?

    New from Garage1217, the solid-state Project Polaris!

    Finally found a garage 1217 thread, looking to try out some of their offerings but most reviews tend to be quite old. Is the project ember amp still competitive in 2021? I was looking for a pair of amps to complement my HD6XX and settled on Bottlehead crack and maybe Ember 2.1. I will probably...

    Koss Portapro Thread

    Hey everyone, ready to finally get the Porta Pros after hearing so much about them since entering the hobby. Only the Drop Pro X appears to be in stock on Amazon Canada, are there any sonic differences from the classic models? Are they sonically the same? Just want to make sure before ordering it.

    Chord Mojo - in 2020?

    Indeed, RCA outputs would be nice to have, FWIW it is possible to get a line level signal out from the mojo (I recall something to that effect from the manual but it has been awhile).

    Chord Mojo - in 2020?

    I reviewed the Mojo during the intial review tour and I regretted not buying it back then. My one and only gripe is that it does not have a defacto "desktop mode." For obvious reasons I am hesitant to leave the unit always plugged due to battery issues. Turns out it might be possible to run in...

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    I went ahead and ordered my very own 5K thanks to high praise from @peter123 I won't lie, I have heard of various BT receivers and amp/dac units in the past but I have always written them off as a gimmick and felt they didn't have the potential to be my daily listening gear. My trusty and...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (1/10/2022: Koss KPH40 Utility Review Added)

    Ditto on the Z7, it has a nice mellow sound signature. I owned a Z5 and even that was really nice for gaming. I regret selling my Z5 and EX1000 (I left this hobby 2 years ago and just came back thanks to PC gaming lol, I used to talk to you about sony gears back in the day, been awhile!)...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (1/10/2022: Koss KPH40 Utility Review Added)

    That is true, Is the mix amp feature on the X3 well implemented? I like plugging in my phone and listening to podcasts and twitch streams while I play and use the computer. After doing a bit of research it seems that the X3 has a habit of resetting its settings - I wonder how widespread that is...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (1/10/2022: Koss KPH40 Utility Review Added)

    I am currently deciding between the following 4 gaming headphones and the reviews on youtube haven't done much in the way of narrowing down my choices lol. I will be exclusively gaming on the PC and will be swapping between amp/dac combo and an astro mixamp pro TR (just came in today, really...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    This single BA IEM has me in a tizzy - the KBEAR F1. Granted, it was a sample, but at $35 it sounds amazing. The F1 seals like a mofo and looks badass too. Detailed, articulate and balanced top to bottom. The bass is taut and articulate, the midrange is lush and musical and the top end is clear...
