    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Has anyone had trouble with certain sources and the coax input? Specifically I'm using the Holo Spring 2 and a Fiio DAP. I tried to hook up a Fiio M11 today using the supplied 4-pole 3.5mm to RCA adapter and a 75 ohm coax cable and it wouldn't lock. I then connected the same setup to a Chord...

    [FiiO M11] Android 7.0, 2.5/3.5/4.4 Powerful Output, Exynos 7872, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, 3GB RAM, WiFi, Two-way LDAC

    Hi James, thanks for the update. A couple questions: 1) Are there limitations on the Aliexpress (Chinese) version that the international version will not have? Can international firmware be loaded onto this device in the future? 2) Can the M11 upsample Tidal to DSD and output via USB? Thanks!

    [FiiO M11] Android 7.0, 2.5/3.5/4.4 Powerful Output, Exynos 7872, Dual AK4493 DAC chips, 3GB RAM, WiFi, Two-way LDAC

    Does anyone know if the All to DSD function works for digital output - i.e. can the M11 upsample to DSD and send that DSD signal to an external DAC? The product page says "With the All To DSD functionality, all PCM audio signals will be converted to the DSD format during the digital-to-analog...

    Audio GD NFB6

            How did yours arrive so quickly? Mine was shipped the same day as yours according to Kingwa's shipment list and is still sitting in Hong Kong. What a bummer.   Ah well, I'll have it soon enough I suppose. Still waiting on shipment notification for the NFB-17 too.

    Cavalli EHHA Embedded Hybrid Headphone Amp

    I searched through this thread for a while, but I still have a couple of questions. I was intending to build a balanced M^3, but this project is tempting. My questions: is there anything else that needs to be done to drive speakers other than use 2W resistors for R32 and R33 and a Zobel...

    Questions about switching in balanced M^3

    amb, Are R3 and R1 irrelevant when the input to, for example, the L channel on the M^3 board is switched to Sg? In other words, in the ground channel R3 and R1 are not present. Does their presence affect the operation of the L channel as a ground channel, or does L with grounded input operate...

    Questions about switching in balanced M^3

    I was planning on using a sigma11. I just looked into using a sigma22, since I hadn't really considered it, and I think it will be easier to just do the switching I described above than have to worry about inserting power into the board in non-standard places. The M^3 board is built with a...

    Questions about switching in balanced M^3

    I probably won't do a very good job asking this question (or questions), but I will do my best. I'm planning on building a balanced M^3 with both unbalanced and balanced inputs and outputs, as well as speaker terminals. I've seen amb's diagram for balanced/unbalanced switching in the b22, and...

    SRH840 impression

    I've had mine since Friday evening, but only have about 30 hours burn-in on them so far. I have to say, these are outstanding for the price, and especially for closed phones. I'll echo Skylab's statement that the Shures really don't sound closed at all. My impressions sonically have been very...

    Considering Netbooks. Didn't I Already Post This?

    I like my Wind for FWIW. The keyboard is WAY nicer than the keyboards on the eee's, i think. The eee keyboard just feels kind of flimsy and springy, but the MSI feels really solid. The touchpad on the MSI sucks though. Big letdown in that department. I wish I would have known that HP was...
