      My Email is Mim3tic***@gmail.com. I sent you an email, but I can send another one if for whatever reason you did receive it.   I am wondering Darin, how is Windows 10 with OFYH. I am a hardcore Windows 7 user and not a fan of 10 but eventually I will add a Windows 10 SSD drive to boot up...

        Thank you Darin for your prompt response. The new License is working and I can't tell you how appreciative I am to see how well you treat and service your customers. I feel naked without OFYH and honestly wouldn't be able to watch any movies without it since I have to use headphones as I...

    HD650's have made it impractical for me to buy speakers.

    I have used and owned numerous headsets, but primary have used my HD650's for 11 years straight. That is a very long time and I can't even begin to counts the hours I have burned in them. Now I was always in a living situation where having loud speakers or high end bookshelf speakers were not...

    I restored my system to an image I made 4 months earlier. Seems to have fixed the problem.   Edit: It seems my licences are no longer working anymore. Might this have to do with the fact that I added an additional SSD and 3TB drive to my system?   Thank you so much for the professional...

    Where to Purchase AUDIO GEAR while in CHINA?????????????????

      I don't Understand. Taobao and JD the prices on AMPS or DACS are the same as what amazon USA charges.   Example FiiO E12A   ¥998.00 = 159.46 USD   This goes for every other audio device.

      That may very well be, but the amps on both the S5 and M8 that I tested them on left me unimpressed. When I hooked thrm directly to a standalone Headphone amp they sounded much better. I was using a Gilmore Lite(neutral, analytically some say bright) with the volume nob at 50%. Bear in mind I...

    I would concur with the implementation of preset options as a highly needed feature so that when you listen to music or movies the ability and ease for the user to quickly change volume presets would make a much smoother hassle free transition.
