    Helpful examples of what to listen for in headphones?

    I was having a discussion over on the True-Fi thread about whether or not you could take a mid-fi headphone and by using EQ, turn it into a 'more expensive-sounding' headphone.

    What should I set my output sample rate to if my audio has various rates? (Mac)

    So, I have various files ranging from 11.025KHz to 172.4KHz (mostly 44.1KHz 16-bit AAC) so should I set my output rate to the highest my DAC can take, using the Utilities...Midi app, or is there any SQ benefit to setting the output each time to match the file?

    After reconnecting a u-DAC-2 to my Mac, distortion happens for a few seconds after a keyboard press

    Does anybody else have this issue? I had a very extensive and helpful reply from NuForce but it pointed towards maybe a IRQ issue or perhaps not enough RAM etc. My MBP has 8GB of RAM and I had just finished rebuilding my Mac onto a brand new hard drive. I was only running iTunes when I...

    What full-scale hi-fi do you listen to?

    I was only wondering as it's important to know that anybody commenting on "wide, precise soundstage", "fast, accurate bass", "silky mid-range" etc. has heard this over a full scale system as well. I have Martin Logan electrostatics, a Chord SPM1200B power amp and a Meridian transport/Pink...
