    Sneak peek of Audio-Technica AT-HA5050H (pre-production unit)

    Just ordered mine this morning.  Also a bargain price, it being a floor model.    Now I'm very curious about your power cable.  I'm not able to get to their store for a demonstration, which model are you using?  How much do they run?  I'm not able to find any info online

    Audio Technica AT-HA5050H and HA22Tube

    'Would also like to see a compro maybe against other amps in its (~$300) price range.  But seems changing out the tubes would change impressions everywhere!  Which makes it complicated when trying to determine "bang for buck."   This is my first amp so I have nothing but a sound card to...

    DAC vs Onboard audio

    This got me scratching my head.  I only have FLAC files.    At the time when I tested with a $50 SIIG DAC using SPDIF supporting ONLY up to 16/96000 Hz.    I switched the source back to the stereo out (24/192000) using the same song & didn't touch the matched volume levels on the...

    How did you arrive at Audio Technicas ?

    Been listening to Japanese music for 8 years now. I then did research and landed myself some ATH-AD2000s but went to head-fi @ san jose. Got to hear the ATH-W11JPNs. Sounded so beautiful I cried. Went home, sold the AD2Ks. (Got ruined by the Orpheus tho.)   When did this get edited?  (6 years...

    Koss Pro/4AAA - 70's vintage cans

    they sound decent for their time. very neutral, weak in the bass area. those were the best headphones on the market back in the 70s until a company named Sennheiser sprung up.

    Are Koss headphones really so breakable?

    my KSC75s literally take a beating (specifically the wiring). so far they're holding up great and maybe someday my soldering iron won't be so lonely ...

    &%#@ Fans %&^#$!!!

    80mm Vantec Tornado's . j/k wire a switch to your current fans to toggle off/on when you're gaming or not. if not go w/ the UV silent, they're silent but don't push as much air. i personally went w/ the switch mod.
