    Reply to review by 'DGCFAD' on item 'Manley Laboratories Absolute Headphone Amplifier'

    It's amazing how much difference electronics can make. I was reviewing a $150 headphone the other day and just for giggles put it on the Manley with the R2R-1 and was totally blown away with how good it sounded.

    Review by 'DGCFAD' on item 'Manley Laboratories Absolute Headphone Amplifier'

    To fully understand why the MANLEY Absolute Headphone Amplifier is such a great deal, you must first understand MANLEY’s pedigree. Back in the late nineteen eighties, MANLEY began life as the Lexus to VTL’s (Vacuum Tube Logic) Toyota. That is to say that MANLEY began as David Manley’s rare air...

    Quote: As I said before, I have done this, but the M3U8 file needs to reflect where the files are located on the player, if the drive letters are wrong or the folder structure is different it won't be able to find the file, so it is necessary to open the M3U8 file in note pad and edit it to...

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    I don't understand why you don't get that distributors are not able to operate outside of their region. You should be taking your issues to your local distributor or dealer, rather than haranguing the North American office for only serving North America.  But of course you bought your product...

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    This has been answered, but for clarity, you have 3 protectors, it looks like you were sent extras in case there was a problem installing. The one without the tabs may not work. They are self explanatory but you remove the film attached to the step 1 tab, then stick that side onto the wheel...

    Questyle QP1

    The QP1 had a very limited run (the QP1R actually came out first), you would need to contact Questyle to find out if there are any left available. In the US that is info_usa@questyleaudio.com

    Review: Questyle Audio QP1R - With Multiple Headphone and IEM Pairings

    I have been using mine for months and it has never fallen off. That being said I was perfectly happy with the wheel before I got it, but some people have dry fingers and have trouble getting a grip on the wheel. The discs are free from Questyle in the USA (I don't know about the UK). You might...

    They are the same size as the wheel and invisible once installed (you can't actually tell that it is there). Contact Questyle they will send you one.

    The driver is a separate download from the questyle page http://questyleaudio.com/uploads/file/20160829/6360806339343514498245974.zip http://questyleaudio.com/uploads/file/20160829/6360809036711897638249363.pdf

    The transparent plastic disc provided by Questyle seems to take care of any slipping issues and it is not visible once applied.

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    The waveguides are part of the magnet structure and therefore don't effect the mass of the diaphragm. As to the headphones themselves, they don't feel noticeably heavier though they must be, I would guess they add less than an ounce.

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    I want to congratulate Dan and Peter and the gang at MrSpeakers for another truly fine product. I have been listening for a couple of days now, and have been forced to dig out recordings I haven't listened to in a while, just to see how the new Ether C Flow headphones handle them. This is the...

    ☯️ Cavalli Audio presents The Source AV’s Summer Series 2016

    As a writer I have been constantly told I should do more social media. The problem with that is I am old. How old you ask? I come from the world of patch bay sequencers. I can hear you scratching your head saying “Huh?” They were a very primitive form of computer that you programed by connecting...

    New DAC for HD800s

    You would be hard pressed to find a better sounding DAC than the CAS192D, it is very detailed and musical. It also has a choice of five different digital filters. The one caveat is if you are going to listen to DSD, only Windows is supported as it does not do DoP.

    Time to move to Hi-Res DAP

    I don't live in Canada, so no. I have been in their store and know them personally, don't know why they put a cap on online purchases. If you don't live in Ontario, contact info@audiopathways.com and they should be able to put you in touch with a local dealer.

    I tend to use the page advance on long lists of songs (the tactile buttons), then switch to the scroll wheel to pick the song.

    Questyle QP1

    Hard to drive can mean a couple of things, traditionally, it meant an unstable load, which is difficult for an amplifier to deal with, this is something that the Questyle amplifiers were designed for, but has very little to do with gain requirements. In most cases, when referring to headphones...

    It sounds like you have data erase protection on your Mac. You may need to "Empty" your "Trash" to reclaim that space.

    In my film database I put the "The" at the end, but in my music database I consider it part of the band's name.

    I organized by data base alphabetically, and that's how I listen to it, it takes about a year to get through a single letter.
