    Phono-Stage Recommendations

    I have a 1984 "The" AR Table with a Rega RB250 arm and a Clear audio Beta Cart currently running to a $50 TCC pre-amp. The setup sounds good but I can't help but think that pre-amp is holding me back. I do not have a budget at this point. I am open to see what you guys think I should spend on...

    A little more bass for a grado lover

    I have a pair of Grado Sr325's and they are great! Except I find the jumbo pads much more comfortable and in doing so I think I am over driving them and have blow drivers twice now.    This is very frustrating. My only gripe with them is I would like a little more bass but not a lot more...

    Grado recabling problem!

    I was attempting to install mono jacks into my grado sr 325's. One went successfully the other not so much. I applied heat to the solder and remove the old wires and then soldered the new wires on and check my connections and there is no continuity between the driver contacts. Removed the wires...

    Different universals or Customs?

    I have the UE SuperFi 5pros and they sound great to my ears. Much different sound than my Grado's but I like that. I like the impact they have. I like listening to music a different way. But I can't stand to have them in my ears for more than a hour or so. I understand that they are not...

    Worth it to get cheap customs?

    I have wanted to get a good portable setup for a while but do not have a large use for it. I just found out Im going to africa again that includes a 16 hour flight :O, and want something good for that. The custom IEM look very attractive to me but the price is not so attractive. I see some...

    Replace my Zune

    Well I recently moved back to Linux, and it does not play well with my Zune HD. I have come to realize that I do not use most of the features of it except playing music. So I was thinking of selling it and getting something else. The Sanza Clip or Fuze seems to be what I need. But I was...

    Where/How do you control your volume?

    Im interested to see what you guys do or think is the correct way to fine tune your volume. This is implying you are using a computer as a source. Do you: Leave system volume and media player volume up all the way and adjust only the amp? System volume up all the way set amp and fine tune...

    Grado Driver Replacement

    So my 325's are of a unknown age, and on some songs i hear some distortion on some bass just in my right ear. So I am assuming the driver is going out slowly. I was thinking of having the drivers replaced. I was wondering if I could have them put in say RS1 drivers in them? And then possibly...

    Little Dot Mk2 vs 3

    Ok so I'm pretty much ready to buy a headphone amp now for my 325's. I know tube amps are recommended for grado's and so are the little dot amps. My question is basicly is the Little Dot MKIII worth the extra money over the MKII? What are the big differences? I listen to Rock, classic Rock...

    DAC for surround sound

    I have a HTPC that is used for movies almost exclusively. Right now I am using only onboard sound. Eww I know. Do the USB to Optical/coaxial work with 5.1? Or should I just get a sound card for it. It is a low profile case so it limits my choices. Any suggestions for the USB to S/PDIF...

    What to do with old iPod?

    I currently have a zune HD that I use at work and in my car that I love. What it replaced was a iPod (I forget what generation its the classic just before they called them classics.) And it does not play out the headphone jack. Works fine otherwise. Just kinda wondering what I could do with...
