    Project Sunrise II Kit Review

    Im using a Bifrost, I think the odac should be fine with the sunrise. obviously there are some small gains but for the price im not sure its worth it. I have listened to both dacs on my amp side by side and the difference was minimal.

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    Sub $100 Over-the-Ear Headphones for a very long flight
