    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    I'm looking to do an upgrade so this might move from being in my main rig to a desktop rig. Which is more than fine. A good piece of equipment like this should stay put. I purchased it 5 years ago and it's still going strong.

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

    Was it something I said?     Help a fellow former contributing brother out!

    Any opinions / reviews on the new McIntosh D100?

      agreed.  $2500 isn't cheap, but for McIntosh you'd figure they'd try to charge 5000+.  I love the look of their components but they're so overpriced for the most part that it's comical.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Quote:   considering mine cracked at a stress point, I think it's safe to say the D1100s were not designed with durablilty in mind.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Yeah, did the glue looks like crap. Won't hold for long though. Ugh, bad design, great sound.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Oh lord, barely had it past a year and it's cracking like crazy at the same spot on the plastic that holds the cups.   Ugh, now I wish I didn't buy them.  I haven't put them on in a long while.  Is there anything I can do?  Does Denon offer replacement parts?   this sucks

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    biggest con for those looking to purchase a DACmini: There's a big big big chance you'll find yourself coming to this site less often ... yeah, that's a veiled pro, but I haven't felt the need to sell and upgrade at all since buying it.  My D2000s sound fantastic on it.   The only thing I...

    Which tube amp under $200 for Q701 and SR325is

    If you're looking for a tube amp, I wouldn't get the LDI+ as it's a hybrid.  It sounds nice, but it's not a tube amp.   Personally I loved the LDI+ when I had it but felt that the pot was kind of ... junky.  The sound was nice on the other hand.  But it's not a true tube amp.

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    Quote:   always awesome to get a response from you.  Seriously an asset to this community.   I was still able to find Senns on the cheap by contacting some distributors directly.  I was hoping for the same hookup, but you're saying they're similar-ish, so I'll put the K701 on my short...

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    I think I spied some DacMini marketing stuff with the T1s used for photo shoots.  That's a positive sign as any.     I'm thinking of adding a headphone more equip for vocals.  Anyone here rocking the Senn 600/650s?

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    Quote:   They're pretty durable.  I've had them for 8 months now and no complaints, even after a few trips and more than a few commutes (I live in NYC, so they're very handy on the train)   Cables are NOT replaceable.  At least not easily.  But everything oozes quality with this set. ...

    Little Dot 1+ vs Hifiman EF2A vs Bellari HA540

    I only listened to the first two, but I much preferred the LDI+ over the EF2A   but honestly, I prefer pure solid state over hybrids.  I can't say I've had a ton of experience with Tube headphone amps (never heard a Woo amp), but I will say, I'm not a fan of the added distortion of hybrid amps.

    Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable

      So as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I purchased a Thorens 190 at a junk shop.  The people at the shop kind of had an idea of it's worth as it was priced at $50 firm (trust me, I'm a haggler, but these guys weren't going to budge no matter what).  All this with no AC adapter.  I bought...

    Went back to that same junk shop I saw the Thorens 190 at and it was still there, so I decided to grab it this time.   Took it home, found an adapter and plugged it in   it spun!   So I have a cheap cartridge and phono amp on order, if this baby works, then I'll start giving it real...

    Garage sale Thorens 190 ... worth 50 bucks?

    He had no adapter for it so I have no idea if it works.   Looks good, missing a stylus.  Older version with the RCAs wired in.   Should I go back and roll the dice?   Price is not negotiable.   It wasn't his, selling it from random junk he picked up.

    I thought it was only an issue with one of headphones but noticed it was present with everyone of them, though fainter on some.   I'd contact the account here for CEntrance about the problem.

    Quote: I'd wager a guess in saying the Concerto is probably more powerful, but the DACmini can hold it's own.  As long as your not running some notoriously hard to drive headphones (Beyer 600 Ohm or HiFiMan Orthos), then you should be ok.  I've seen plenty of anecdotes where owners of...

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

    I shot an email to Westone about offering iPhone controls with their premium IEMs and it seems they're working on it.  They're plan to offer replacement cables that will have it.  I think it's safe to say I'll be throwing some money their way when this happens.  I've always been curious about...
