    FiiO M3K-Probably the Most Cost-Effective Hi-Res Music Player, Discrete HiFi DAC Chip, Supports up to 384K/32B

    I just picked one of these up for biking since my old 2006 iPod is pretty much dead at this point. Question, anyone who has put Rockbox on it, the latest 1.4.3 version. How is the scrolling? I have never used Rockbox in my life. The only thing i dislike about this player is how long it takes to...

    Gilmore Lite Amp Owners Unite!

    I went from Asgard 2 to mk2 and it was a nice step up. I wish I still had the original Gilmore Lite to compare.

    Massdrop x Grace Design SDAC - a budget beast

    Yes I have posted about it on another section and another audio forum but not much here at headfi. To my ears the SDAC sounds better. More holographic/3d. The fact that it is less then half the price is nice too. I need to box up and sell my Modi Multibit but I haven't taken the time to do it yet.

    Shiit Asgard 2 vs Objective 2. Convince me.

      Blast from the past this thread lol. Out of the non-Fazor LCD-2 I have on now the Asgard 2 sounds great. However I do wonder about more power because supposedly Audeze says the LCD-2 sounds best with 4w not the 1w the Asgard 2 puts out. It does get plenty loud tho.

    Best Computer Audio Player Software?

      Wow this takes me back. I used to mess with that stuff. These days I just use MusicBee with WASAPI. I am not sure if DirectSound is still "bad" but just to be safe I leave WASAPI on.

    Best Computer Audio Player Software?

      I had been using a Dragonfly 1.2 as my main DAC since I went laptop only. People LOVE to crap all over the Dragonfly even tho the SABRE DAC in it is plenty modern and all.    Had been wondering about Schiit Multibit so I took the plunge and bought the Magni 2 Multibit. Listening right now...

    Oppo Sonica DAC (an affordable ES9038PRO Sabre DAC)

    I just found out about this DAC today. I am debating getting it but I am wondering if the difference between my Dragonfly which has the 9023 and this would really be that big. Same DAC family after all.

    I need a new cable for my LCD-2 and I am hoping some nice head-fier in Anchorage can sell me one. Thanks!

    Sennheiser x Massdrop HD6XX Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

      For what its worth I ordered the Grado GR60e and AKG 7XX on Mass Drop and it was smooth sailing all the way. Yes, the wait sucks. However besides that I have zero complaints.

    Sennheiser x Massdrop HD6XX Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

      Yeah I will snag some next time. Just ordered some Audeze LCD-2s for an early Christmas so its a nice consolation :)

    HD650 fan. Like dark sound. Better "end game" for dark/veiled sound?

      I had never even heard of this, thanks for the recommendation. Shows you how out of the loop I am. They sound like a really interesting headphone and like they specifically wanted to make one that is "dark". I might just order them.

    HD650 fan. Like dark sound. Better "end game" for dark/veiled sound?

      What makes me nervous about Audeze is they have a reputation for terrible build quality. I mean stops working after 3 weeks? Really. Kind makes me nervous. Also everyone says how ridiculously heavy and uncomfortable they are.

    HD650 fan. Like dark sound. Better "end game" for dark/veiled sound?

    So I have been on headfi since 2004 and the way I tend to do things is buy a bunch of crap, then use it for years till it breaks. I rarely upgrade.   I am getting a promotion at work so I was thinking about the Sennheiser HD800s since they are "end game" for Sennheiser.   However I really...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      Of course. I didn't say the 580/600/650 were identical. I have the 580 and 650. I have been having fun with binaural recordings and other kinds of recordings that use speaker tricks and such listening too a certain section and quickly swapping between the 580 and 650 just to hear the...

    Sonarworks Headphone Calibration software, anyone explain how I can get this working with foobar/musicbee?

      Ohhh so its kinda like Virtual Audio Cable, gotcha. I didn't realize i needed something else.

    Sonarworks Headphone Calibration software, anyone explain how I can get this working with foobar/musicbee?

    Perhaps I have just gone dumb this Labor Day but I got the 21 day trial from here: http://sonarworks.com/2015/03/sonarworks-reference-3-studio-calibration-is-out/   I have tried copying the VST plugin to the foobar directory and musicbee but it doesn't show up anywhere in the options.  ...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      Years before the sound science form and such I just kindly asked someone to explain how his thick $1,000 cable improved the SQ of his headphones. The argument quickly devolved into him berating me for saying "thick" when I should have said "wide" and how my post was the most worthless in the...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      Ah I just googled Cowboy junkies Live at the Ark binaural.   That recording is really good at showing the differences between the 580 and 650. I played the intro and Shining Moon a few times. Switching from the 650 to the 580 you immediately notice the soundstage is smaller but then as your...

      So I uh...........ordered the MFSL version of Nevermind with express shipping FLAC. On the HD650 the first immediate difference is cymbal quality on Smells Like Teen Spirit. Nevermind was the first CD I ever bought so I have heard it plenty. Very nice.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

      The 558/598 and 650 are completely different. The 650 was based off the 600 which uses the exact same drivers as the 580. You can put any part from the 580 on the 650 and vice versa.  For years the 580 was the flagship. They are basically the same headphone tho they of course are not...

    My 10 year old Little Dot ii+ has developed nasty distortion in the right channel. How can I tell if this is the tube or internet circuitry?

      I tried this and the problem remains :( Looks like I need a new tube amp.   Owned the thing for ages its about time.

      That is the goal. I brought my old 595s to work once and I was so paranoid about them leaking volume I had to keep them super low. Closed for outside the home, open for home.
