    iBasso D10. .UPDATES 1st page, with Current Opamp Choices by HiFlight . . . images page 1, 12, 13, 14, 15, 21, 71

    Recently, I've brought the D10 into my audio rig: Nationite S:Flo2 -> Whiplash Audio Hybrid TWAg-TWCu mini-to-mini -> iBasso D10 -> Grado HF-2 phones and it adds SUCH a lovely increase in the abundance of rich lushness to the sound in the music to which I listen using it.   Substitute...

    Quest for non-Pleather 780 pads

    I thought for sure that I had posted this in this thread, but when I went back to look for it, I could not find it.  I did plunk down the $100+ for the E9 leather pads for my ALO 780 phones - which I've been using now for a little over two years.  Given that I spent about $650 on the original...

    Available - RSA "The Black Bird" SR-71A, Redesigned, Resized AMP images page 1,28, 33, 34, 39 . Mini review: 40, 41, 45 .

    Quote: My opinion of the Caliente can be found in the main thread about the Purity Audio KICAS amps.  Neither my opinion, nor my daily use of the Caliente has changed since I wrote that opinion in that thread.  In this thread, I'll say that I still use the SR-71A that I purchased back in...

    STUDIO I Evaluation!!!

    I received my STUDIO in late May, 2010.  It was a worthwhile piece of portable listening gear then, and it remains so today - I use it on an everyday basis to do high quality listening at work with VERY low transport/setup/takedown distraction.  I've purchased each of the following Brainwavz...

    Quote: You've since sent me this question in a PM, and I've replied to that PM, but I'll reply to this question in this thread for the benefit of others who may be interested.   Yes, I find the Sennheiser Mx980 to be a wonderful match with the Studio.  The sound using this pairing comes...

    REVIEW: Purity Audio K.I.C.A.S. Caliente home headphone amp - updated with comments on regular KICAS

    I purchased a Purity Audio KICAS Caliente in July 2008, and have posted before how amazed I have been with this amp, especially driving my HD650 phones.  Well, here it is approaching the Summer of 2010 (during which season I listen almost exclusively with a pair of ALO-modded SR225 (hardwood...

    Head-Fi and HDtracks (David Chesky) Collaborate to Assemble A Headphone System Test Album!

    I'm downloading the 24/96 flac files now. I've listened to the first two tracks on one of my stationary headphone rigs. These recordings capture the live sound of this music as few other recordings I've heard. The reduced price to Head-Fi members makes this is a greatly appreciated gift to us as...

    What else is strange about it, is that the "newly-revealed, supposedly previously undisclosed truth" consists of, mainly, points which had been posted months ago (and repeated many times since) in the main AMP3 threads.
