    Comment by 'money4me247' on listing 'Scam Alert!'

    Also, I do NOT sell any other items on any other platforms, so if someone refers to my account as feedback for prior activity, that is completely false.

    Hi guys, I have been away from this hobby for quite a while, and it makes me very sad that this is the type of activity was that brought me back onto the forums. My account was hacked and my inbox was flooded with activity from the scammer, but I was able to sent out warnings to everyone he was...

    Where is the price/performance talk?

    Hifiman often has great performance to price ratios if focusing on sound quality per dollar. Their older gwar is often significantly discounted and still performs very competitively. Usually their issues relates to build quality, but I haven't had any personal issues. Some other companies do...

    Campfire - Solaris

    yes, reviewers do frequently get kickbacks (either early access, free products, discount codes), and review websites generate revenue via ads and editors have special relationships with manufacturers. This is the way things work in all industries though, not just audio. Just the unfortunate...

    Should I buy HE400S or a new DAC?

    meh, I don't think the vmoda m100 is a good closed upgrade. very vshaped sound sig, bass definitely bleeds into mids and mids recessed. the ath-m50 is prob a better value as similar sound sig. My personal fav is the oppo pm3 for a good closed portable upgrade with more balanced sound signature...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Default is that you can control the volume of both XLR and RCA. You can set any output (RCA, XLR, 3.5mm, or 1/4 jack) to be fixed as well though.

    Should I buy HE400S or a new DAC?

    That is a really good question. I personally think headphones upgrades will always give you a bigger bang per buck. From my personal experience, upgrades with amplifier and dac upgrades are much more subtle, not worth it going from modi to another modi in my personal opinion. Of course, at the...

    Campfire Audio - Introducing 2 new models Hello Andromeda and Nova

    @szore , I have a lot of trouble with the Andromeda's fit as well, especially the sharp edges digging into my ear as I am very sensitive. The fix for that I have found was to use bigger eartips so I got a good seal with an extreme shallow fit. The shell is no longer pressing against my ear and...

    Upgrade from Noble X - Xelento alternatives?

    Other single dynamic driver that I can think of include campfire vega and atlas, rhapsodio galaxy, hifiman re2000. I've only tried the vega out of those, v-shaped sound sig but definitely has good warmth, comfort was fine during my short demo. there has been some buzz about the JVC FD01 with...

    Upgrade from Noble X - Xelento alternatives?

    I have the Xelento, it is quite nice and I would highly recommend it for someone who is looking for a detailed IEM with a warm sound signature and outstanding comfort. I also have the Noble X but it does not fit me well, so I don't think I get ideal sound from it, so difficult for me to do fair...

    Andromeda vs Xelento

    @Jettsom , I have both IEMs, they sound different enough that a causal non-audiophile listener can tell in direct side-by-side comparisons. Biggest sound signature differences is that the Campfire Andromeda is not as bassy as the Xelento and has a sharper treble. The Andromeda's overall tuning...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    @unmaker, I used to be really interested in trying to pick out the subtle differences between gear, but I've reached a point in this hobby where I don't really care very much about really pinpointing the small differences in dac and amplifiers. The headphones or speakers make such a larger...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    @CaptainFantastic, I have both. I recently purchased the RME ADI-2 dac specifically because my IEMs (andromeda and xelento) would hiss on the grace m900 and I also wanted balanced pre-amp output. They both use the same AKM4490 dac chip. I've only had the RME ADI-2 for a day though. To be...

    Having more than 1 IEM, is there a point?

    Custom IEMs are hard to resell. If you want to get many pairs of IEMs and will switch often, I recommend buying used. It is difficult to keep too large a collection of IEMs, I have found that realistically I will gravitate towards one pair and occasionally switch to use a second pair. Anything...

I've been known in the past to be extremely opinionated & stir up a lot of debate and controversy with my comments. In...
