    Dock for iPhone to bypass internal dac

    I'm aware of the camera adapter but is there a dock that has this all in one neat package? Basically I want to use my iPhone as a source for centrance dacmini, so lightening to USB A to USB B into my dacmini. I found this mess (attached photo) on the internet for reference

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    I think so. It has a premium sound and requires NO amp. How can that be beat? It has a very full size sound to it. Now, they don't sound like the refined full sized big boys, but as a potable it has a meaty, fun BUT clear sound. Cons: Not for vocals or bass light recordings. Some rock...

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    I was looking for a Yin/Yang kind of comparison.  I use the Denons for my Punk/New Wave/80s stuff, but I was looking for something that pairs better with Rock and Vocals.   Any advice?   Anyone know where to score them cheap?   Thanks, in advance.

    40 oz to Freedom

    Man I never realized how horribly recorded this album was.  I'm tempted to buy some crappy headphones or use a crappy amp so I can enjoy this album again.   Anyone else feel the same?  There just seems to random bouts of distortion.  Maybe my rip is bad (I hope) or maybe it was just recorded...

    The CEntrance DACmini Unboxing thread (video)

    Totally ridiculous and unnecessary.  I bring to you my CEntrance DACmini unboxing video.  I usually say this is pointless but I find my self looking for them on youtube all the time. I noticed there were barely any CEntrance DACmini vids in general and thought I'd give it a stab.  Now I know it...

    Looking for a high quality Solid State amp.

    But I don't want to go with the "budget" Chinese designed.  So this keeps Little Dot, Matrix, gd, and all the other guys out of the picture. Preferably I want to go with a Japanese audio company, but those aren't always easy to get a hold of.   I just would like some ideas, please.

    Best iPhone mic adapter?

    I have some Sennheiser HD25s on the way and I really want to keep the functionality of using a mic so I can accept phone calls without taking off my cans.  I simply need the one button setup.   I saw the Shure's for 40, but I was wondering if there were any other alternatives.   The...

    Are there any remote controlled DACs that don't cost an arm and leg?

    Seriously, DACs are already overpriced but add something ancient like a remote and the whole world explodes.   I just want something with a volume control and perhaps some different sources.

    Stevie Wonder fans, I need your help ...

    I have the definitive collection and the songs are beautiful, but I feel like there's better versions of these songs to be had   what are the best CD masters of his songs?   If I had a vinyl setup, I'd track down every last one of his records to hear these as they were meant to be heard.

    Do I have a virus of some sort?

    I'm browsing the forums and an advert on the side claims super cheap Nanos and iTouches, I click on it and it's a site of bootleg iPods. Now I didn't think this site would allow an advertiser to list something like this on the website so I tried to reload the browser over and over again to see...

    Koss Pro-4AA: Admiring from a distance ...

    I just wanted to say, these are some goofy looking headphones and I can't seem to take my eyes off them. If it weren't for the bad reviews (e.g. lack of bass), I probably would've picked up a pair. Has anyone tried to swap out the drivers from a better set (Denons, Beyerdynamic, etc.)...

    How important is soundstage?

    I've been a member here for a long time but I've only been aggressively active since March of this year, yet I still have no idea when or why soundstage is important. The two headphones I own: Denon D2000 and Grado SR125 are not known for their soundstage, but I like their sound like no...

    Modded D2000 or D5000 "Vanilla"?

    I'm going to be working with a 400 dollar budget for my next pair of headphones. I'm thinking of buying the D2000 and a pair of JMoney pads, then waiting a little while to get used to the sound before going ahead and doing the Markl mods as well. But all this is going to cost me 400+, so why...

    Besides Cambridge, are there any other CDPs that double as DACs?

    As the topic says. I can't seem to "google" this.

    Is the X-Can V3 discontinued indefinitely?

    I've been doing my research and this seemed like a really good fit . . . but . . . I can't find it anywhere! I take it that it's out of production, but will they be making a new version or is this line done?

    Where's a good site for computer SPEAKER audio?

    as opposed to headphones. as much as I love my cans (and I do) and as much as I want a set of Denon d2000, I think my preferred listening is my NHT M-00s and as such I wouldn't mind discussing this a bit more in a forum dedicated to computer audio and speakers. I'm still a somewhat lost...

    small cable dilemma

    I have a dacmagic on the way and I'll be using one set of outputs from my speaker to my pot to the RCAs, and the other remaining out put is XLRs. I plan to buy a headphone amp and use an XLR to RCA cable to feed it . . . will this be a good idea? Should I return my RCA pot and get an XLR pot...

    Need help with finding a new Dac in the 200 to 300 range . . .

    I'm in the market for a new dac and the only dac that's somewhat interesting to me so far is the V-Dac. I'm thinking new, my limit is 300 bucks. I'm not interested in the Compass or any other massively sized DAC. I'd like to keep it desktop size friendly (though if I somehow stumbled on the...

    So if the Grado 125i and 225i use the same driver . . .

    How can you guys justify the price difference? I'm not saying this to defend my purchase, but I got to audition the 60,80,125, and 225 and I noticed a dramatic difference when I went from 80 to 125, but from 125 to 225 it was hardly there. Just to be sure I wasn't crazy, I handed them over...

    Considering my amp . . .

    Is it worth it to pay the extra $100 for the hd 600 from a 595? I'm currently waiting for a fubar iii to come in the mail. I'm not looking for super hi-fi. More like mid-fi to almost hi-fi.

    What are some good cans to pair up with the D10?

    I was looking to spend 150 or so but if I have to I'll spend up to 260. I was thinking some nice open cans but I hear nice things about the denon d2000. I just want to make sure whatever I get isn't underpowered. My main pref in music is electronic music and rock. But I occasionally...

    A bit of a dillemma choosing the right headphone amp . . .

    right now I'm running a fubar II dac to a pot then to my speakers I'd like to use the dac on some headphones which shouldn't be a problem because my pot has two outputs, but this will leave me with two volume controls (one from the amp and one from the pot itself) Is there an inexpensive...

    Sennheiser HD 570s

    I did a search, and it seems like the biggest complaint is the price point I just scored these for 40 bucks they sound great, I don't use an amp or anything but they sound good for videogames and my home stereo take away the price point, would you say it's a good pair of headphones for...
