    Best Portable for "The New iPad"

    Dac Amp Imac AE5's

    So I have a 2010 iMac connected to a Firestone DAC and a pair of AE5's which you probably know are self powered speakers. I also have a Headamp AE 2 just sitting around doing nothing.   Is there a way, and would it be a benefit to, add the AE2 into the mix?   Just a newbie question.

    Decibel Music Player for Mac OS X (was AyreWave)

    Not sure what I think of Decibel just yet. It's no longer free which is fine. Its available thru the Mac App Store for $33. Right now I'm using a 24hr free trial but havent had much time to listen. My first impression is wider sound stage and more defined instrument seperation than itunes.  ...

    My First Pair...Grado SR80i

    I just ordered a pair. Im reasonably new to audiophilia, and up to this point I have only owned canal phones. My favorites are my um3x and Ety er4s. So how will these compare to the Grados?

    I Need A DAC...

    I asked this question in the Computer forum but never got a clear answer.   I just purchased a set of Audioengine A5's. I'm running them from my pc laptop thru the HP out, which as you know is not the best way to go. So I've decided to purchase a portable dac, but since the A5's have an...

    Triple Fi 10 Cable difference? My new TF10 has a different cable, normal?
