    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    I'm looking to do an upgrade so this might move from being in my main rig to a desktop rig. Which is more than fine. A good piece of equipment like this should stay put. I purchased it 5 years ago and it's still going strong.

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

      late update, but I finally got around to buying these not too long ago.   They sound fantastic.  I'm really happy with them ... BUT ... I feel the Denon version sounded slightly better, mainly because the cups were deeper and fit around my ears better.  I feel the deeper cups gave the bass...

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

    Well it beats paying 110 for those Denons when I bought them new only to have them fall apart a year later. I can swallow a 50 dollar loss easier.

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

    So my d1100s crapped out on me. They were horribly built plasticky headphones (cracked at cup joints and other areas), on top of that, the ear pads faded away and peeled off. My question is, is there a similar headphone out there with the same comfort (they were around the ear not on ear) and...

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Yeah, did the glue looks like crap. Won't hold for long though. Ugh, bad design, great sound.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Oh lord, barely had it past a year and it's cracking like crazy at the same spot on the plastic that holds the cups.   Ugh, now I wish I didn't buy them.  I haven't put them on in a long while.  Is there anything I can do?  Does Denon offer replacement parts?   this sucks

    DAC and AMP for D7100

    I was wondering, can you make the font bigger so I can read it more clearly?

    K702's or Schiit Asgard first

    Quote:   Oh, I see.   Most of the time I consider true rock all the stuff that came out during the late 60s up till the late 70s.  Stuff after that is a bit rougher and different.     I guess what I'm trying to say is, although I love the bass and drums on my D2000s, I'd like to...

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    Quote:   always awesome to get a response from you.  Seriously an asset to this community.   I was still able to find Senns on the cheap by contacting some distributors directly.  I was hoping for the same hookup, but you're saying they're similar-ish, so I'll put the K701 on my short...

    Quote:   depends on the IEMs, but for the most part, I'd say it's overkill.  I'm not sure why people made a big stink about this amp and IEMs, personally if I using IEMs as my primarly headphone, I'd probably buy a smaller amp, fine tuned for those types of things.  That's not to say it...

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    Quote:   I like the Denon 1100 a lot.  It may be a bit bassy but it still sounds great and feels great on your head, while being pretty good at blocking noise.  I have to say, they have to be one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned.  I know a lot of people here will...

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    On ear are the least comfortable headphone you can buy.  I've sold every on ear I've ever purchased.

    My #1 gripe with head-fi forum members

    Quote:   well said, old sport!   I think had I stuck on that path, I would've been convinced that the D2000s were a piece of garbage.  They happen to be one of the finest headphones most people will ever have the liberty of listening to if they'd just stop following a random person's...

    Mine sound great.  I feel no need to get the 1 ohm mod.  Why ruin a good thing?

    Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable

      So as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I purchased a Thorens 190 at a junk shop.  The people at the shop kind of had an idea of it's worth as it was priced at $50 firm (trust me, I'm a haggler, but these guys weren't going to budge no matter what).  All this with no AC adapter.  I bought...

    Quote:   Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure you need a special cartridge/stylus to play 78s   good thing for you that that's only regulated to very old records   my paltry vinyl collection dates back to the 50s and there isn't a 78 to be found.

    Went back to that same junk shop I saw the Thorens 190 at and it was still there, so I decided to grab it this time.   Took it home, found an adapter and plugged it in   it spun!   So I have a cheap cartridge and phono amp on order, if this baby works, then I'll start giving it real...

    Garage sale Thorens 190 ... worth 50 bucks?

    He had no adapter for it so I have no idea if it works.   Looks good, missing a stylus.  Older version with the RCAs wired in.   Should I go back and roll the dice?   Price is not negotiable.   It wasn't his, selling it from random junk he picked up.

    You might have a defective unit.   I was having static issues with my volume knob as well, so I sent it back to CEntrance and had it fixed.   No problems at all since then.
