    Does crappy rca interconnects introduce distortion?

    Any Paradigm Atom Owners Here? :)

    I have the v5 Atoms for my desktop and they sound fantastic. Some people worry that bookshelf speakers don't perform very well up close at the typical desktop range, but I found that with the right positioning (angled to point a bit behind you, placed fairly close to either side of the monitor...

    new owner SE530. (subtitle: what took me so long)

    I have loved these IEMs for quite some time (luckily with no cable issues!) and I personally found them to improve slightly with an amp (Pico). I think it's just a testament to how great and efficient they are at what they do: delivering engaging, accurate sound with amazing isolation...

    IEM's for Prog Rock/Metal

    Unfortunately, I don't believe that any IEM in that price range will be able to really compete with the SR225 in terms of presenting guitars in rock/metal. Fortunately, the SF5 pro is a good IEM for all kinds of music, and if you can stretch your budget a little, they should be able to keep you...

    Are KSC-75 good for running?

    I too use the KSC75 for running, and they are more than adequate in terms of sound and comfort. I find that I can loop the clips entirely over my ears, right down to my earlobe, and then they are nice and snug.

    HeadAmp Pico Portable Amp (w/ optional upsampling 24/96 USB DAC) Pre-Order Thread

    As a heads up to others in Canada, I just received my pico (#257) in Toronto. And as everyone else has said extensively, pictures do not do it justice... it is so small! Thank you very much Justin for your great product and service. Best regards, Jon

    C'mon guys. The SE530 Appreciation Thread. Triple Fi owners welcome

    I just thought I should post on this thread to show my support for SE530. Although they cannot compete with my big cans at home, on noisy buses and trains they are simply invaluable. I always pity the others who need to crank up their ipod earbuds to even hear their music over the roar of public...

    Audio equipment or Music collections?

    I like to take turns when I'm investing in music vs. gear. So one month might be mostly gear, the next month only music. Except I usually purchase things in chunks, and chunks of gear are much more expensive than chunks of music. So as of now, I have more invested in gear (but actually not by a...

    Post the last thing you bought. Oh fun!

    I got myself a new video ipod nano! 8GB, silver, with a nice clear case. I must say that I am very impressed with this small, thin device. Apple did a pretty good job with this one.

    Another IEM for me thread

    I really enjoy my SE530, especially for metal/pop, but for your preferred genres, I would seriously consider the 10 (which is what I presume you meant). They are a little more laid back, have amazing clarity, and are better balanced when presenting the whole sonic spectrum, especially...

    A Grado story - from hate to love

    I can definitely relate to the OP. After fooling around with IEM's for over 2 years, and trying the standard repertoire of Senns/AKGs/Denons, I bought an SR60 and thoroughly enjoyed them. I am now also dangerously contemplating the RS1...

    Amazing how perspectives change!

    Sorry about the smashed up leg! I'm glad you pulled through to return to your speakers. And who knows? Maybe when we realize that we take so many things for granted (like health, or hearing for that matter) we take a step back and learn to appreciate the essentials in life, and forget about...

    korean speaking members, please help

    Haha, I love hearing/reading Konglish. It seems to be a popular trend with the young people these days, as they are able to communicate with older first generation Koreans but also stay sort of "hip" by throwing in the English. My parents, however, don't find it amusing, so I have always spoken...

    Phony craiglist ad leads to looting

    Or the farmer could have trained his animals to beat the intruders into mush. The horse could have probably given half of those people a concussion with a few well-aimed kicks.

    Ebay-auction: I'm bloody nervous :-)

    I'm so sorry that you didn't win! I've lost a few auctions in the dying seconds because some sniper outbid me by a dollar or two. It's frustrating. But you win some and lose some, and you usually end up saving lots on ebay. Best of luck with the next auction!

    yay se530s

    Good choice on the SE530! They just suck me right into my music and take me into a world of sound, far away from the noisy commute I have to make every day.

    Poll: Who Owns SE530's or Triple.Fi's ?

    Both are good IEM's, and I can definitely understand why many people would prefer the TF10. I, however, am still sticking with my SE530 for their mid and bass impact. A lot of what I'm listening to these days (power metal, r&b) just sounds so vibrant and alive with SE530. Undoubtedly the UE's...

    Happy with the px100's

    I like the PX100 for workouts. Cheap, light, and lots of oomph for those moments when you're lifting a few too many pounds.
