I have a pair of Triangle LNO1A powered speakers hooked up via RCA input from an ifi Neo idsd DAC via USB...

    Best Portable for "The New iPad"

    I prefer something small amp wise. I was thinking RS P-51 Mustang. As stated in the original post I'm using either ER4s or UM3x.

    Any benefit- iMac,Firestone DAC, AE5......

    would I benefit from adding my Headamp AE2 to my setup? iMac-Firestone DAC- AudioEngine 5. The AE"s are powered so Im not sure if the inclusion of the AE2 would do much og anything. Should I use it as a pre amp? Is that considered pre-amping? I'm such a newbie :) I asked this in the comp...

    Dac Amp Imac AE5's

    So I have a 2010 iMac connected to a Firestone DAC and a pair of AE5's which you probably know are self powered speakers. I also have a Headamp AE 2 just sitting around doing nothing.   Is there a way, and would it be a benefit to, add the AE2 into the mix?   Just a newbie question.

    Decibel Music Player for Mac OS X (was AyreWave)

    Not sure what I think of Decibel just yet. It's no longer free which is fine. Its available thru the Mac App Store for $33. Right now I'm using a 24hr free trial but havent had much time to listen. My first impression is wider sound stage and more defined instrument seperation than itunes.  ...

    Grado Fan Club!

      You can count me in as a Grado groupie!! I bought my first pair of Grados an hour ago, the SR80i, my first pair of full size cans by the way, and I already know I'm going to buy the RS1. I've got a fair amount of burn in ahead, but I can already hear where there going and I love it. They...

    My First Pair...Grado SR80i

    I just ordered a pair. Im reasonably new to audiophilia, and up to this point I have only owned canal phones. My favorites are my um3x and Ety er4s. So how will these compare to the Grados?

    Review: Firestone Fireye II headphone amp - full metal amp

      Quote: I just received my Fireye 2 today and am going to use it on my AE A5's as well. I'll be running from a PC. Is it safe to assume that it's simply plug and play? Also will it work with a Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard?

    I Need A DAC...

    I asked this question in the Computer forum but never got a clear answer.   I just purchased a set of Audioengine A5's. I'm running them from my pc laptop thru the HP out, which as you know is not the best way to go. So I've decided to purchase a portable dac, but since the A5's have an...

    Need DAC for Audioengine A5 - No Amp Required.

    I was looking to get a portable DAC for my laptop in order to run my Audioengines. I was interested in the Nuforce uDac, but Im not sure how well this will work since the Audios are powered speakers and the uDac has an amp.   Any suggestions?

    Stereo Bluetooth for my Macbook Pro?

    I'm looking for a nice pair of bluetooth headphones for my mac. I tried the Moto S9 and hated the fit and lack of range. I prefer an earbud style but I'm open to anything of good quality. Any suggestions?

    HeadRoom BitHead or Nuforce uDac

    I'm in the market for a low cost quality dac. The two that seem to fit the bill are the Bithead and the uDac. Although reviews of the udac are promising there is a recurring comment thru all that mentions a imbalance between the right and left channel. This is most unappealing to me.   So...

    nuForce uDac: Easy as 1,2,3?

    So I'm not that savy when it comes to computer audio. With that said, I'd like to think that the uDac will work on my Macbook Pro and that it's as easy as plugging it into a USB on the Mac and then plugging in my speakers to the uDac.   Does that sound right?
