    Should I buy a Peachtree Nova for the core of my audio setup?

    go for it. The peachtree gear doesnt seem to have any detractors. The pre/dac/head amp are all supposed to rock, the power amp is likely the weakest point. But you can bypass that as it has a pre-out if it does prove to be the weak-link down the road.

    MELOS SHA-Gold attenuator replacement advice required

    I've read through your mod-log several times and would love to do much of what you've done. The attenuator switch-out sounds like it'd be simple enough to accomplish but I dont have the skills I wish I had to feel comfortable switching much else out. The left channel mod and upgrading...

    Best album of the 90s, everyone agrees.

    In 1995 David Bowie brought us 1. Outside. 1. Outside is the best album of the 90s. Stunningly recorded. Capturing the horror and freedom of the moment of realization that the millennium was upon us 1. Outside wraps everything that is apathy, cynicism, technology/human interdevelopment, the...

    BEST ALBUM OF THE DECADE! Argue with it... if you can!

    You know come to think of it Penultimate is the right word to use. As far as I know they havent retired and I wouldnt want to label THIRD as the best of what Portishead could do. So I will stick with penultimate. I keep hearing more and more in hail to the thief. It just doesnt seem to end...

    BEST ALBUM OF THE DECADE! Argue with it... if you can!

    A brief statement… I think the Potishead’s Third is the best album of the decade. The intelligence and cleverness in the album’s recording, the brilliant variety in song and the way each track hits the listener like a shot in the arm is utterly lovely. Beth Gibson’s vocals, the allowance for...

    Turntable --> Audioengine A2s. Is an amp needed?

    How much do you want to spend? 1st skip the Rega p1 and pro-ject debut III Get a music hall MMF 2.2. Higher quality platter than both the Rega and Pro-ject, better arm than the pro-ject, questionably better than the rega too. 2nd look for a b-stock denon PMA 2000ivr. B-stocks are...

    How large is the portable amp/DAC community?

    I'm interested in taking something of a census in hopes of getting a sense of how large this community is. How many out there have portable amps with built in DACs. I spend a lot of time on subways and see vast numbers of folks with headphones. but I have yet to see someone carrying an amp...

    Wadia i170

    Has any one looked under the hood and drawn a map as to how this thing functions? I am curious. I know it has an apple produced chip that lets it function as it does. But what else is in there?

    any denon PMA2000 IVR owners?

    i havent, but if there is anyone that could help me avoid dropping money on one right now i'd be happy. in a recent thread several folks seemed to feel their pre-amps and even several integrated amps did quite well when it came to powering headphones. Everything about the 2000 ivr is quite...

    any denon PMA2000 IVR owners?

    are there any users of the DENON PMA2000 ivr that have compared the headphone out to any quality headphone amps? I'm honestly quite impressed by the power the denon can provide for my k701s and i'm thinking of canceling an order i have in for a headamp to use the money to fund other projects...

    Phones for College

    perhaps you should take all this advice and hold off until you get to your dorm room, meet your roomies and your neighbors and then you'll know better which way to go, open or closed and then take the plunge. In the mean time try to get out and hear some of the products. The sr60 seems like a...

    It's the truth man... lossless... sometimes you'd think it's a joke, but then there are things that stand out; like the guy that got the hotel room and a bottle of korbel for post prom fun. I had that experience a couple months back when i was sitting on futon reading kant and all of sudden i...
