    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    HiFiman HE-500 (HE as in High End) Proving to be an enjoyable experience in listening.

    Yes that would work, Beyer pads are quite tight on the HE500 rings but they will work If you could find HE500 pattern in a velour material that would be better Also many people seem to prefer angled pads although personally I prefer flat

    I was looking from a troll perspective, which was uncomfortably comfortable As an accidental troll the condensed message goes something like Who dares enter here Prostrate yourself before us Lest you be judged unworthy Over dramatic but it paints a picture mostly of deterrent. My opinion is...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Cool , the puzzle piece I missed was PWM being analog and digital in character So zoomed out it appears and works like an analog wave form ie you can run a transducer with it Zoom in and you can see the digital on / off nature of the pulse Much like @bigshot I still can't quite get how we go...
