    Which company makes the best car speakers?

    Yes. The Focal Be car audio speaker systems with their own passive crossovers are ever so slightly better than the Dynaudio system speakers (when volume matched) with their own passive crossovers, but Focal’s are 4-5x the price now; they used to be 3-4x the price.

    Which company makes the best car speakers?

    Back in 2000, I put over $17K into a system in my 2000 Toyota Solara car (which was stupid, I’ll never do that again because the only time I could truly enjoy it was when I wasn’t driving). I had a custom built $1100 alternator from an older gentleman who did Alpine’s show cars. It put out 292...

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    I really wanted my iPhone 11 Pro Max in the photo, but unfortunately I needed its camera. Even with no 2.5mm jack you can see the L shape connector still puts pressure on it. I must say that so far, and I’ve only been listening awhile to it with my Audeze LCDi4 Planar Magnetic IEMs, this AM3D...

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    Amazon for the Q5s at $299, and FiiO directly for the module as they were the only one selling it. They notified me the day it was ready and I was already the 34th order. Check your inbox.

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    Nightmare with FiiO, where do I even begin! I don’t have time to post it all now, but I’ll say this. They give you 4 custom made screws with the Q5s and 4 with the THX module I just got but haven’t tried yet? Why? Because out of the 8 screws and the 2 in the unit, I have 3 good screws left...

    Review: Bellatone Reference Cable for the HD800

    I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here but there are many reasons why, and it’s very late here and I will address the specifics if you send me a private message. I’m not here to make excuses; only tell you the facts. To make a long story short, my Grandfather died two days after...

    It's to prevent suction so that the nano-grade diaphragm doesn't get damaged.

    Audeze LCD-4

    You'd think so, right? Not so. Getting the LCD4 was the first chance I had to listen to my system in 2 years. No time. I hope things change though.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Oh, but yeah, your low gain might be a gain of 6. My low gain is 2. So there's a big difference there. That's likely why the V281 is so much louder. I'm not sure where I'm going to set my boards at but likely somewhere between 6 and 8.

    Audeze LCD-4

    That's good. My Beta22 (or most any balanced Beta22s) is a world class amp and the only downside is no variable gain but it is capable of 40 watts at 8 ohms. RUNNING BALANCED ALWAYS: At 300 ohms on low gain for my HD800 it gets plenty loud on my DACT 4-channel attenuator (not cheap, a $600...

    Audeze LCD-4

    Not quite sure how much power the V281 puts out but the LCD4 require roughly 2.3x as much current for equal volume as the LCD3. But you can't go wrong with the LCD4. Truly world class and I've not heard better.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Such as? I don't know what kind of system you are using so I can only speak to my own, and I've had almost half a dozen speakerphiles come listen and they more or less agree with exactly what I've said, and the amounts of cash they have tied up in their systems range anywhere from approx...

    Audeze LCD-4

    I'm just saying, people here get real jumpy. I wrote a positive review because I absolutely love my LCD-4 and immediately I was accused by the first person who read it of working for the company. That's just how people are here. I was just giving you friendly advice. :slight_smile:

    Audeze LCD-4

    Just a word of advice, that's not something one should go around advertising as you will have people irrationally jumping all over you claiming you are a shill. But I can promise you, you are one among hundreds or maybe thousands that receive discounts on this site for either headphones or...

    Audeze LCD-4

    :thumbsup_tone1::thumbsup_tone1::thumbsup_tone1: Exactly my sentiments. Yes, we have a choice. I chose to build a 6 figure system over the course of 8 years because it was a goal I set, and I'm not someone who has multiple sources or multiple amps. Some people here have 100 pairs of headphones...

    Audeze LCD-4

    But the LCD4 are at least much more comfortable than the Abyss and any of the other LCD phones due to the combo carbon fiber and leather headbands. It's hard to listen to any phone for 8 hours straight, which I never do except maybe once every 12-18 months. Other than that my sessions last...

    Audeze LCD-4

    By that rationale, all high end summit phones are overpriced, which in a way they are because it's more about perceived value to these headphone companies. But, and I would never spend $8K on a pair of headphones, I'd sooner pay $8K for the LCD4 than $5.2K for the Abyss. Which do you prefer...

    Audeze LCD-4

    Totally agree. I have no clue either how some feel the LCD-3 sound like the new LCD-4. The LCD-4 is the most superior headphone I've ever heard.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Lol @ the Valium. Apparently none of those DAC/amps have enough real power for these phones, as my pair have 95% as much bass as my LCD-3 which was slightly over the baseline. I'm hoping we aren't seeing another fluctuating driver issue, because then opinions are hard to give, period.

    Audeze LCD-4

    Have you heard the new version as of February? Or not? It is very different from the original release in October. Opinions provided based on the old diaphragm should be taken with a grain of salt. (And if you have, I must wonder what kind of system you listened to them on to feel the midrange...

    Audeze LCD-4

    I can answer both of your posts with one answer. I earlier left a review a page or two back, maybe more. I personally find the 007 and 009 lacking as I have felt about all electrostats except the original SR-Omega, hence the reason I don't own any, which I doubt many of you ever heard since it...
