    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Can someone kindly explain to me how thing works like im 12? Is this meant to replace your amp/dac? Will you have to connect your DAC to it, what if it's not enough to power/drive headphones properly? And if you only have a headphone set-up without any 7.1 sound card virtualization, is it...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (8/18/2022: iFi GO Blu Review Added)

    I just revived from inactivity, but big shout-out to the people like MLE and others who keep updating this thread and all the useful information that's out there. To me, its kinda funny, It's 2018 and nothing significant has been implemented (software wise) that with just 1 click of a button...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Gibosi/Mordi   What do you guys think about the 6HM5 Yugo and the 6N6P-IR Gold Grid Combination?   How would the Mullard M8100 compare to the Yugo? The Voshkod 6N23P are decent as power tubes, but i find them a little bright and too detailed.     I'm looking for something airy...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    ljoker. I really appreciate this thread.  I remember lurking those rainy nights and reading all about the iems that i wanted and was always glad to see a nice detailed summary of everything listed.     So I've been using the Visang-R02's for quite a long time, and i love em, but they...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    Listening to Richard Marx - Touch Of Heaven   Absolutely incredible on the LD MKIII. Simply incredible. The lush mids. The sweet vocal tonality . The quality bass, the center-stage of awesomeness.     The loudness of the Senn's don't bother me anymore.  So what if these HD600's get loud as...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I sort of have a love/hate relationship with the HD600.   I bought these quite some time ago, and they sound marvelous, they really do.   The vocals are really nice, crisp, clean, airy and close and personal.   The Senn's soundstage and air separation is different. It's forward, it's nice...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Hey, guys, it's me again.   I decided to not pull the trigger on the Woo Audio 3, just yet ! Maybe Mordy's or Gibosi's recommendation might save me some bucks !   Even tho my Electro-Harmanox and Sovtek 6h30-PI died very prematurely and early deaths.     So I've  been re-listening to this...

        yeah, you can get them for $22 to $25(remote versions) on amazon.   They don't make these anymore, but i do recall they use to be $50 back in the days.   I use my visang r02 for everything, as an all-rounder, so maybe this one will be a backup for me. I heard the bass on these were...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    I've milked this amp for 5 years now. Probably one of the best bang for the buck amps I've ever spent.   But i think I'm going to have to let it go.   I've rolled several mullard driver tubes on this amp. But i stuck with the EF95 M8100's.   The Power tubes that i tried were   Sovtek...

    Props to Woo for the sale.   But my main question is, why does the prices seem kind of marked up?   Why was the WA6 and WA3 both for $600 for a substantial period of time, and then suddenly for the 10% sale, the WA6's mark down price is coming from $699 to $629   Even the WA2, was...

    New Hifiman HE-5LE planar magnetic headphone

    ye   that's the thing, on paper, The WA2 is supposed to be designed for high impedance headphones.  But there have been some reports that is works wonderful for low impedance as well. I skimmed through the Woo Audio 2 thread and some dude said that the ATH-W5000 and the WA2 amp was magic. ...

    Looking for a headset for Movies (mainly) music and games.

    ...6 channel surround sound, get sth like the Omega striker. Xonar Essence STX also springs to mind   650's too advanced for a beginner IMO. They'll work really decent for an all-round purpose, but it's over-kill for what you're asking. Your wallet will give you a *bro pound* if you get the...

    So the Woo Audio thread starter and our jolly ole' buddy ole' pale dannie01 has concurred all his demons and finally stepped his game up with the WA5-LE.   It may not be as strong as musicman59's 'The Black Beauty', it may not burn  with the same caliber as the B.B  , but it inherits the...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    put the LD's amp gain to 3 or 4 ( i personally like 4 the best) People like Prickley_Peete say that you should follow it by the books and match your headphone impedance with the LD manual, but I've come to realise that it doesn't always work out this way. Low gain always works best on high...

    How do i make the HD650 more neutral and less bassy?

    Quote: Isn't it the the way around? Silver Dragon = more detail, adds more bright prescence, cleans up, etc... Blue  for spot on neutrality and Black Dragon for bass improvement, better low-end and smoothness. I was generally told this from Drew when i asked him a long time back, but...

    Very sweet WA2 you got there Thaddy. The camera picture makes it seem as if those small driver tubes in the middle were Mullards with Sovtek tops   I was probably going to jump on the WA2 that fatcat28037 had on the F/S section a couple days ago since I rarely get to see them go up for sale...
