    Had a great time today (day 2) at CanJam NYC 2022! Enjoyed Woo Audio WA23 along with the Abyss phones. Overall, I really liked the Blue Hawaii with the Voce.

    STAX SRM-D10 Portable Electrostatic Headphone Amplifier / DAC

    Been curious about the SR-003 MK 2 and finally bought one. Really liking the sound. More towards the 007mk2 sound than 009. By the way, I know a lot of folks say the D10 can't drive the 007mk2 but for my ears, it is way loud enough. I never go beyond 1 o'clock with the 007mk2. As far as...

    Audio technica 2018 new family lineup: ATH-CK2000 Ti, ATH-AP 2000Ti and ATH-CM 2000Ti

    I would not say "not appropriate" for jazz as everyone has a different bias for sound. The fact is the human ear canal is not a flat frequency hearing device. We all hear differently. What sounds grainy sounds smooth to another, etc. For my ears, I prefer a more pristine and less bass heavy...

    Audio technica 2018 new family lineup: ATH-CK2000 Ti, ATH-AP 2000Ti and ATH-CM 2000Ti

    I just picked up the CK2000Ti at the Tokyo Headphone Festival yesterday. I've only had it a day but I like the sound of these IEMs. I would not use it for acoustic jazz or classical but for pop music, it sounds great. Warm and big bass going deep but clear. Not bright at all and I can listen...

    Comment by 'jazzgene' in article 'Chord Mojo FAQ'

    I use an iPhone with a Mophie Battery Case. The case uses a micro usb plug. Is it possible to use a OTG cable to connect the Mojo to the iPhone with the OTG cable?

    Tube Change/Biasing a Stax 006t II

    I need to bias my SR007tII as the original tubes on the right channel died. I see in the 007tII, there are TVR3 and TVR4. I can't find a schematic for this amp and am trying to find out what these trimmers are? Is setting the DC balance and DC offset with TVR1 and TVR2 enough? TVR3 and TVR4 has...

    Tuberolling SRM-007t

    Reply to review by 'jazzgene' on item 'Yamamoto HA-02'

    I find the HD650 to match well with the HA-02.

    Impedance considerations for Yamamoto HA-02?

    Sounds great with my hd650, akg k701, and Grado rs1i. Ha-02 just sounds really great to me. :)

    Synergy question: Senn 650's and Yamamoto HA-02?

    This combination sounds great to me. I don't hear any less of a synergy with the hd650. Matter of fact, the HA-02 drives all my headphones very well.

    Where is the "real sound" within the 'high-end headphones' category?

    This is true and can be said at every stage of audio reproduction.  Every microphone sounds different and as someone in the business of music, you choose to your taste, really.  Some really love the sound of a Shure SM57 on electric guitar amps...  I don't and prefer condensors.  So it goes.  ...

    I've heard great things about Stax and electrostatic headphones in general.  I am very much looking forward to hearing music with them.
