    Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread!

    im not disputing what you said. i have never heard a d5k or a th-x00 so i cant say for myself.   but keep in mind that the driver isnt the only thing changing the sound. cups, pads, depth of cups, damping materials, etc. all make a difference. if you compare the d5k and the d2k, youll see...

    getting my first high end files,i have an mp3 collection, what files do i need? and will i have to start over (my colleciton) + my setup!

      i get the feeling this doesnt really belong in the music forum, but nonetheless...   Vividcard is making a good point. this is your first step into "audiophile" land. and your leaping in with top tier gear. be sure you educate yourself properly first, and make sure that the set you decide...

    The Audiophile Bass Lounge (Basshead club part II)

    headphones first - definitely. just make sure that the pair you get arent "hard to drive". for your budget there should be plenty of options.   as a non gamer, who listens mostly to electronical music, i can personally vouch for the v-moda m-100, who are slightly above your budget at ~300$...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    one more thing actually....   you mentioned dacs. im assuming your talking about the 2Vrms standard output? rms means in laymens terms "average". the 2V will also fluctuate depending on the music...   understand. the dac takes data and translates it into an analogue signal - which is...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    mate. a "sinusoidal" wave is another way of saying "sine wave". a sine wave alternates between positive and negative polarity at a given frequency. i guess you could say that a sine wave "alternating" at 0 Hz is like a direct current - but thats just a backwards way of seeing it. a smooth...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    from wikipedia:  "Direct current (DC) is the unidirectional flow of electric charge. Direct current is produced by sources such as batteries,thermocouples, solar cells, and commutator-type electric machines of the dynamo type... ... The electric current flows in a constant direction...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    the driver works by pushing air. it moves forward, and backward. an ac current, say a sine wave at 1 KHz will make the driver move backwards AND forwards 1000 times per second. a dc current doesnt alternate - direct current. feeding a driver dc current will make the driver move backwards only...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    sorry for the weird text layout - my computer is being weird...   headphones, and all drivers of any kind "receive" ac, alternating current - which is what music is. a dc signal  will kill most any driver. the inner workings of the 02 are powered by dc voltage (the only kind a battery  knows...

    Techno, Electro & Underground Beats

    possible. ive noticed im not very good at recognizing sub genres in dance music (other not necessarily dance music is easier for me for some reason). but take dense and pika. thats virtually the only track of theirs that i like. ive checked out some of their eps and was quite underwhelmed...  ...

    Techno, Electro & Underground Beats

      techno doesnt pretend to be pleasant i think. incorparating obvious samples shamelessly, like harsh midi hi hats. whereas house will usually be softened up, easyer on the ear and more "user friendly"...   imagin the only album of theirs that i could find, ill be sure to check out the ep as well

    What these Frequency charts means?. break it down slowly plz.

    i didnt know that, but none the less, i was explaining amplitude, and my explanation still holds.. frequency = pitch, amplitude = volume.     ninjaphone was saying that a higher frequency meant a high level, which is not the way it works youre right, all this talk is just theoretical...

    need (proper) spectrum analyzer for foobar please

      yea i guess your right, maybe later on ill download a seperate indicator if i can find one not to mention im using headphones . i just thought it may indicate compression or something thats all. apparently it does not...   edit: looks like theres also a peak meter which seems to be...

    need (proper) spectrum analyzer for foobar please

      thats what i was assuming. my question was - isnt -50 dB vrms really big? thats alot of dynamic range isnt it? as far as i know, the dynamic range of say a classical orchestra would be like 96 dB, somewhere in the midlle theyd be rock and stuff like that, and on the low end theyd be...

    Why do no audiophiles listen to electronic music?

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    is there a point? i dont know, what are you trying to achieve? assuming the X2s are "easy to drive" (which i wouldnt know btw) then you wouldnt necessarily NEED the combo if thats what your getting at. what point are you talking about?

    need (proper) spectrum analyzer for foobar please

    one that shows the frequency as well as level. my search yielded one analyzer that didnt work at all (couldnt see it in the preferences) and one "musical analyzer" which was very pretty, but showed notes - as opposed to frequencies, and that too was only up to c9 (~8 KHz aparently)... does...

    can i connect an acoustic guitar to a reciever via fiio e11?

    Very random question - i know. I hope this is the right forum for this... But my flatmate has an acoustic guitar (with a line out), i have a fiio e11 and theres a very old, very crappy stereo system in the livingroom - connectors and cables are no issue. What are the chances of killing one of...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

      when you say your dac is an on-board pc dac, im assuming that youre connecting your new O2 to the computer via the headphone jack? if so, your not only using your onboard dac, but are infact using both the onboard dac and the onboard amp - the signal coming out of the headphone jack is...
