    iFi micro iDSD Black-Label - In-Depth Review

    Thanks... Please do... I personally would think of some other solution rather than get the identical switch. If there was a better-designed or more robust switch out there than can be hacked into place properly, then that might be better than going with the same switch which is likely to fail...

    iFi micro iDSD Black-Label - In-Depth Review

    Thanks... I already messaged you guys and was told to bring the unit to where I bought it in Singapore to get it checked instead of send it to you guys in the UK. The CS person then immediately closed the case. I thought that was rather abrupt a response. I don't see how the retailer I bought...

    DEQ-2496: Temporary Headphone Amp!?!

    Someone liked this post recently and I need to add something as an update that I forgot to type years ago... The main correction: Using the DEQ2496 to directly drive headphones produced a fun sound when I first heard it. However, the next day, I realised that the sound that was "fun" was...

    iFi micro iDSD Black-Label - In-Depth Review

    Thanks for the reply man... Yes it's definitely a flawed switch design for it to be so delicate. I remember the same issue happening with the unit that I was testing in-store, but thought that was probably not going to happen to mine since it wouldn't see as much wear and tear as a demo unit...

    iFi micro iDSD Black-Label - In-Depth Review

    Guys, My unit has suffered the dreaded IEMatch switch issue where changing it from off to any other position results in channel imbalance or total channel cutout. I've also realized that middle or "Normal" gain seems to have a slight, but fatiguing distortion or ringing to it in the upper mids...

    Stax SR-009: suggestions to tone down the brightness?

    Quote: I think the others have a better idea of what a darker sounding DAC will be. I rotate between a Bel Canto DAC3 and a MHDT Havana with WE396a tubes. The Havana is more rounded in the top end (with the WE tubes) but not with the stock GE tubes. However, I have a feeeling the Havana is...

    Stax SR-009: suggestions to tone down the brightness?

    I don't think it will solve your problems entirely, but I do own and am familiar with the Accuphase house sound and while very smooth at the top end, they can tend to sound a little less meaty in the mids and further affected by a bit more emphasis on the low highs to middle highs. I'm sure you...

    MHDT Havana DAC

    Hi Guys, I've been away for quite a long time and have recently came back looking for a nice 'musical' DAC. Long story short; I've done my research for months now and have decided on the Havana. However, I lack open shelf space for the thing and it will almost certainly have to be placed...

    Any prove cables make a difference?

    Woah! Long time no post! I'll try to go direct into the original topic. But first, I'm curious: reano, did you hear any difference between your stock Sennheiser Headphone cable and your aftermarket ones? The thread was so long that I gave up trying to find if you'd been asked and have...

    Seriously Disappointed with my sr225's

    I think I understand what you mean. I remember when I first tried a pair of MS1, I didn't think they sounded "Hi-Fi" or anything special. They sounded like an ordinary pair of earphones to me. I was listening to them through comfy pads which allow a lot of bass to come through and they just...

    Jan Meier is as upstanding as they come.

    I am perhaps one of the most demanding and picky customers out there but Jan has always provided me with his consistant and excellent service. If you've seen my e-mails to and from him, then you'll find his honesty and hard-work to be obvious. I've bought cables, an amp and a headphone from...

    1967cutlass, I'd like to join you in this discussion but I'm short on time so I'll just make a few general points for the good of this thread hopefully. 1. Tradition has its place and its advantages but not with Headphones. The only "tradition" Grado should keep is their sound signature...

    Like others I'm wondering if a true successor to the K1000 will be released soon. To me, even a year from now is soon... The K701 looks gorgeous though... I just hope the engineers chose the 'white' material properly or it'll turn yellow overtime like some iPods do... Urgh! The sound is what...
