    Looking for a DAP between USD $750-1000

    The last time I visited Head-Fi, the newest DAPs I can remember were the iBasso DX80 and FiiO X7. I am completely out of the current loop and overwhelmed by new options, to say the least. I am looking to buy a new DAP to use as a source for my home theater stereo and on-the-go listening. I need...

    Re-cabling needed. Please help.

    Over the past week or two I've found that both my DUNU Titan 1s and Zero Audio DWX-10 Duozas have developed shorts in the terminals that cause the signal to drop out of one channel when the wires are nudged while in use. I cannot fix this myself, nor can I afford to pay for replacements. I'm...

    Considering my first pair of planar magnetic cans. Need recommendations.

    As the title says, I've never heard planars before and I'm really curious about them. I'd like to ensure that within my limited budget (≤ $500 USD) the first pair I buy will be a knockout. I've read lots of reviews of the Oppo PM-3 and HiFiMan HE-400/500, but beyond that I'm not sure what they...

    A (probably) stupid question about amplification.

    So better input equals better output, theoretically, right?  If so, what happens if you, say, amp your FiiO X1 through a Topping NX1 and then run the headphone out of the NX1 into your Objective 2 before feeding that to your headphones?   Is this even feasible?  Will it damage my equipment...

    Should I be worried about my RE-400s? (Potential defect)

    My wife gave me a pair of HiFiMan RE-400s for Christmas but they arrived on the 27th.  Since then I've listened to them or left them burning in more or less constantly, albeit never at a volume that could damage them.  I've treated them like they're made of glass and never exposed them to...

    HiFiMan RE-400 Waterlines + iBasso DX50: A Poor Match?

    I've been researching the DX50 extensively for the past few days and since everyone is seems to be drooling over firmware 1.2.8's sound quality and (relative?) stability, I'd made my decision to buy it.  Then, in the middle of my elation I stumbled into a forum post saying the RE-400s are a poor...
