    HIDIZS MS4 $50 off Just add it to your subscription. Dunno why IEMs would ever need a sub but, wait till it ships/delivered then just cancel. Anyone have experience with these? Might try them out.

    Help me find some IEMs to look at.

    So I've ben on a my Peachtree Decco 2 for desktop and Sony A45 for the longest time. I just bought a FiiO M11 and it made me realize how much I've been missing out on my music as it absolutely destroys both of those. The details this little DAP can pull out is truely amazing. Headphones I'm...

    Need some slow jazz/sax

    Something like this is what I really like: Also been listening to a lot of Katie Melua, Brian Culbertson and Gary BB Coleman. Coleman has some upbeat stuff I'm not too huge a fan of but his slower stuff is excellent. I got some new Focal bookshelf speakers and I'm finding they LOVE being fed...

    DAC clicking through speakers using USB

    I had my computer off all night, get home from work, turn computer on and I started getting this noise. It does the same thing on another computer as well as with different cables. Optical doesn't do this so I'm assuming something's funky with my USB board. I had this issue once before like...

    Need bluetooth earphones that don't suck.

    So I looked around for a couple days, nothing really came up as the best other than the cult following behind the Jaybird X3. Bought a pair of Best Buy, sounds GREAT, fits GREAT but the bluetooth receiver on it is garbage, got my phone in my side pocket while working and it keeps cutting out. I...

    Woo Audio Model: HPS-R/HPS-T Shipment delayed

    I "pre-ordered" a dual headphone stand about a month ago just because I know as soon as they get them in they'll be sold out almost instantly. I'm not in a hurry but out of curiosity I sent them an email to see what their time frame was looking like.     Just so those of you who are also...

    DAC doing that screechy sound

    I posted this in the Modi section but seeing as not everyone goes in that thread and this issue has popped up on other DAC devices I figured someone could shine some light.   My Modi has been great the last two weeks but it just started doing that high pitch frequency scratchy sound and it...

    I've had a crazy kick on this stuff lately but I don't know any composers or artists who's this was their bread and butter.   Examples:   1st song   I did find Bohren & Der   Appears Miles Davis has...

    Pioneer SX 636 repair Madison WI

    My pops gave me his old receiver he bought brand new, thing still works and all the lamps work. Only thing I know of that's wrong with it is my mom stepped on one of the knobs years ago and snapped the stem.   I was wondering if anyone in the Madison area knows someone who's good with this old...

    New Sennheiser HD700 or Used Audeze LCD-2

    I'm currently using my HD598 but plan on buying some new can's pretty soon.   I got a Little Dot MKIII that'll be here this weekend, and later this month I'll buy the new cans.   These days I listen to more electronic/jazzy stuff. Metal is still mixed in there but nearly as much as it used...

    Schiit Valhalla vs Little Dot MKIII for Sennheiser HD 598/700

    I've been obsessing over the research of tube amps for the past couple weeks and I'm down to two contenders. I've owned neither or heard neither. I live in Madison and unfortunately, being a college town, the only audio gear I can test out is Bose and Beats.   Music: Occasionally some power...

    Could use some help choosing a tube amp. Thanks!

    Ok so being an ex guitarist...I loved tube amps. The problem was though was you had to crank the volume up to heat the tubes up to get the benefit of the sound. My Vox amp had a feature where I could crank the power to the tubes to get it toasty but use a separate volume knob to bring the volume...

    Hello!! Introduction and could use some advice :D
