    The foobar2000 help thread. Got problems or questions? Ask here!

    Tks.. yes actually that is the link I was using. The oddest thing....I'm getting it to work currently. well.. sort of,,, As it changes tracks, I get a bit of distortionIcrackle/light popping) which lasts for just a second. It also does that when I click ahead on a track. When it changes tracks I...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    I agree Nana. Without them all present simultaneously to compare, it is soooooo difficult to do so with any accuracy. My memory is not fantastic but I DO know that I have never experienced this level of musicality and joy with any of my previous DACs. none.. I am stunned by how good the Spring...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    I Do although I have been strictly a redbook (and some 24bit music) guy until this point.  I plan to delve into DSD somewhat and if I feel it's superior enough I will likely pursue more. I'm not very tech savvy and  I use Foobar2K. The add on that I dl'd for DSD playback hasn't done the trick...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Received my Spring L3 yesterday. After only a couple hours after warm up I am quite impressed. Very holographic/3D presentation with truly awesome detail. Felt like I was listening at a live venue,  which is precisely the sound I have always attempted to achieve but it has escaped me.. (I attend...

    I just purchased my first DSD capable DAC. I use Foobar2K. I am as NON tech savvy of a guy  as can possibly be. REALLY can use some help here. I dl'd this http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_input_dsdiff  but the couple of DSD files I picked up(a couple 128 and 256 files) will still...

    Vintage/Current R2R DAC Owners Discussion, Insight, and Review Thread

    I have not heard of the dixio audio dac  but it looks quite intriguing. Interested to see/hear what you think of your Vinshine DAC when it arrives. I was interested in having a Soekris dac built a year or so back but it fell through.  cheers!

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Oh well.. I guess it's not exactly the WORST 'problem' to have! You lose a few $ in the resale but I guess we should just look at that as an 'audition fee'

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Tks...hmmmmmm.. I bought and sold two pair of the HD800. Not a huge fan.  Wish I could hear both. I suppose I COULD buy both. Perhaps I'll decide I want to keep both and , if not, some lucky HeadFier will get a nice deal on a gently used pair.. Such a magnanimous dude I am

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Im not familiar with PTE drivers. What other can out there utilitizes it? I am a big fan of the Nighthawks(which,of course, uses biocellulose drivers) but , actually, the description of the Atticus sounds like it may be slightly more to my liking(though the Eikon uses the Biocell) Though I am...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I think this has been asked, but is the NightOwl intended to be essentially a closed version of the Hawks or not necessarily?

    The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

    Yes Sir.. I have one coming in  a couple weeks. The Dangerous is a pro mixing DAC but a fellow HeadFier picked one up and ditched his Yggy for it. Says it's more euphoric than Yggy. More musical with just a tad less detail.  Would be a great match for the GS -X I'm thinking.

    The Official Sony MDR-Z1R Flagship Headphone Thread (Live From IFA 2016)

    Does the Z7 and the Z1R share the same input connectors? I would like to use my aftermarket hp cable should I choose to purchase the Z1R.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I've got a free SD Resonator mod kit for whomever would like it. I sold my HD800 before the mod kit arrived(today) and , obviously , have no use for it now. Just send me your mailing address and I'll send it to you. My treat! Cheers!

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    I use the Singxer SU-1 converter.  It has the I2S hdmi output. sounds amazing too.(although I do not have my Spring DAC yet. Using it's AES out to my Sonic Frontiers DAC)

    Agreed. I have had several MUCH higher priced cans come and go from my inventory but the Hawks still remain.

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I absolutely concur. As much as I want to love planars, they always have an edge to them that sounds unnatural to me and def causes listening fatigue. I keep trying them only to sell them off in short order. Just bought the Ether Flow hoping that they cured that issue up but...not enough to be a...

    Vintage/Current R2R DAC Owners Discussion, Insight, and Review Thread

    Yes... that would be a fair price just for the DAC so it's almost like getting the transport as a free bonus. I already own this DAC otherwise I would have jumped on it. LOVE my Sonic Frontiers DAC.

    and that price is in CAD so it's only $1250 in USD
