    Need Spotify on A&K SP2000

    I went to the APKPure website to try to download Spotify and install it on my SP2000. The website does not show an icon to download an XAPK version of Spotify. What it shows is an ability to download it using Google Play. I don't have a Google account and I'm not trying to install Spotify on an...

    Astell - Kann Cube or SP1000?

    I'm considering the Kann Cube and the SP1000. I'm not sure I really need the extra power in the Kann, but it is tempting if I ever purchase a high-end power hungry headphone. The price is basically half of the SP1000. I'm wondering if I would be sacrificing higher audio quality by choosing...

    iRiver Plus and AK100

    One of the things I love about iTunes and iPod is that you can create a random playlist from your whole library and then have up to 60 Gigs of random songs copied onto your iPod.   Last time I checked, the shuffle feature on my AK100 totally blows.  I always listen to music randomly, mostly at...

    Need DAP with big storage - tired of iPod

    I have been using iPod classics and iMods for many years.  I am wondering what kind of DAPs are out there now with relatively high storage capacity with good sound.  I think 32Gig would be about the smallest I would consider.  Suggestions?

    The new Westone line?

    I have had a pair of Westone 3's which I use at the gym 3-4 times a week.  They have been fantastic.  Sound great, and VERY comfortable and lightweight.   I am wondering if the newer models of Westone are as comfortable and lightweight?

    Red Wine iMod died today

    Well my beloved 5.5G iMod died today, sounded fantastic all the way to the end.  Now I need to get another one.  I see on Vinnie's website that he still does the iMod, but I think you have to provide the iPod.  I do not know where I can find one of these things.  Has anybody recently gone this...

    Anyone like SOMA FM?

    I don't know if my ears are playing tricks onme, but when I listen to SOMA FM streaming (it says it is only 128K) it sounds really quite good to me using my Grado's and Cary 300.  My experience in the past with 128k MP3's is that they sound rather crappy.  Curious if anybody else has listened...

    Anybody purchased UE11 or JH11 / 13 used and then had the ear pieces re-done?

    How does that work?  Do you ship off ear impressions and the custom headphones to Ultimate Ears or JH Audio and they make the new headphones?
