    ZMF Verite Closed - Headphone Amp

    To be transparent, you've got some pretty spendy gear to be asking that question; said differently, your gear far, far exceeds your ability to get what you paid for out of it ... right now; and that's the good news. The long answer is, it depends on what you listen to and what you want out of...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    Anybody try these with the woo WA11? I'm looking for a transportable solution with a great isolating closed and thinking maybe the VC+wa11 could be it ... all opinions appreciated!

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    you can, although those threads devolve into a dystopian hellscape that consume the souls of ye who enter ... so, with that, I'd recommend some small limited-to-experiences with VC discusion be allowed (especially since Zach sells cables).

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    Oh boy! Very excited for this as I've had similar experiences with my ZMFs, ZMF HP cables as well as interconnects, and USB / power cables and have a similar conclusion; it's the whole chain. In my case I live in downtown silicon valley in a condo 15 stories up - there's a butt-ton of EMI and...

    Woo Audio WA8 Review - Head-Fi TV

    Great post - I'm on the fence between this and the RME ADI-2: both are "transportable" for my needs, which is basically moving around the house, or to and from a known location, to a place where I'll be sitting and listening for a few hours. I'd be lying if I said I didn't love the nerd...

    ZMF Verite

    While that's your preference, you're likely not confused on meaning when you hear "soundstage" in reference to the verite on this forum about headphones. Just making the point that there's so much in audiophilia to quibble about, as long as a term's context is clear, we should leave sleeping...

    ZMF Verite

    I think we call it "soundstage" - and since this is headphone forum and we all know the Verite is a headphone, we can all feel comfortable the context is clear and obvious: headphones.

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    I agree, I'm not sure why people keep claiming they have a definitive answer for all ears, equipment, and environments when all they have is a few limited experiments. Occasionally you and I agree.

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    That's not how science works Greg, and this is the science thread. In this case, I'm saying we have no definitive answer one way or another, and you (and others) are saying we do; yes you have some evidence, but that's not proof, that's just speculation based on limited empirical observations...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    And you are unable to recognize that scientific evidence on some equipment, in some environment, analyzed by a few people, DOES NOT EQUAL scientific proof. If one was extremely biased, they'd look for any evidence their bias was correct, find it, and stop. Sorry Greg, limited testing of...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    (1.) Scientifically proven means we have a predictive theory that proves it's IMPOSSIBLE for USB cables to make a difference for all ears, for all equipment, for all environments. We don't have that. No links posted have ever shown that (and I'm pretty sure 1000 pages ago I posted those links...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Dude. asked and answered like 1000 times (read back 80 pages). It's not scientific proof.

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    That's funny, I reported your posts too! Blatant insults, trolling, and impolite

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Yes, Brooko, because you're a big smartie hero and everyone who disagrees with your OPINION must very very bad man! You might consider you have an overinflated sense of your expertise and ability to judge a definitive answer ... Might that be possible??? Naw, you've probably got everything...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    yeah, that's a fundamental misunderstanding of the equipment and science so we're at a stopper.

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    If you don't understand why that's not even a stitch toward scientifically proven, then maybe we need a new thread on what "scientifically proven" is.

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Yes! Because I'm reminding people their unscientifically-proven position is, in fact, only an opinion and that annoys them. However, since this is the science thread, I'm holding them to the scientific standard: If they're going to take a definitive position on the topic, they should...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Well, first, to @castleofargh's point, we have no proof one way or another, and random experiments by some dude with some meters proves nothing, so hyperventilating about links and numbers is as valuable as me trying cables on my system: it's not scientific and proves absolutely nothing. This...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Except for the thousands of people who perceive a difference and the fact that nobody has ever proved they can't. Although your certainty despite zero expertise in the field, and any proof otherwise is impressive!

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    That's pretty awesome, you're probably the first person here with the humility and courage to say that. Until we know, here's to learning new stuff! :: clink, clink ::

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    I don't know, you don't know, nobody here knows - that's the science. And even if we did know, it would be only for our equipment, in our environments at that time. Thus until someone can do a source-to-DAC-in/out data analysis of a representative set of sources and DACs, who knows? Not to...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    Dude, I am making no such claim, nor have I ever posted such a claim, quite the opposite. as for "the established knowledge of digital transfers", yeah, I'm "going against" "digital transfers" since we talking UAC not USB mass storage aka bulk-mode transfer. They are two totally different...

    Why do USB cables make such a difference?

    How could I edit his post? Go look, that dude said: "There are decades of evidence supporting the point that a cheap USB cable works as well as an expensive cable. Otherwise we would be getting CRC errors all over the place when transferring data over USB. Portable hard drives would be...
