    FiiO M6-Ultra-Portable Inexpensive Smart Hi-Res Player, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, FiiO Link, USB DAC, USB audio out, aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA/SBC

    Thought I share a revelation here: I been assuming the M6 won’t have to drive my 300Ohm HD600. Wrong! I plugged it in not expecting much and it sounds amazing. Bass full and punchy. And maybe it’s a battery powered portable and hence lower electrical noise I hear more details than my desktop set...

    You mean USB connection from M6 to the Modi produces no sound? That’s the primary means I have in mind, via the DAP’s USB C out.

    Anyone connecting their Schiit DAC to the M6? Thinking of buying it to replace my clunky MacBook Air. Any issues I might face?

    Schiit Mani

    Yet another vinylphile getting his mind blown. I think Schiit should get into analog big time. Make high end analog sound available to the masses. Just like they did with digital. Sure hit.

    Schiit Mani

    Got my Mani yesterday and I have this to say: those poor sounding records that I regretted buying? They weren't poor sounding. It's the phono input of my Rega Brio amp. It's like a toy compared to the Mani. And all this while I thought I made a smart move getting a Rega amp cuz these guys gotta...

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I'm getting great results from my yggy+Jot combo. Ignore all that talk about Jot being harsh. Listen for yourself and decide. Some actually prefer the Jot to the Rag. It's that good but do go balance. It's a league up.

    iFi Groundhog+ (official) - vids added!

    I see what you mean. Thanks for explaining the issue. Guess I got to work around it. You guys have plans to produce a multi-output power source? Would be a great way to neaten up my row of iPowers powering my micros. ; )

    Roon is live

    Maybe I could have the NUC connected to input 2 on my screen and switch that on when I need to access some features. Other times, it will just run headless in its own.

    Roon is live

    That's something that didn't occur to me. I do access some features (DSP, device setup, lyrics, etc.) on my mac that don't appear in my remote app. I suppose I won't be able to anymore if I switch to a headless NUC-ROCK. Hmmm.

    Roon is live

    I hear a lot of people are running roon on NUC. My core is on a mac mini, and controlled using Roon app on iPhone. Do you think there's any benefit getting a separate NUC to run roon?

    Sonore microRendu Music Streamer impressions

    The software is coming out later today? That's quick. Look forward to your impressions. Update: I'm mistook u meant a newer software. The v2.5 has been out for a while and I already have it. That works with the new network A+ I presume. Via DLNA?

    Sonore microRendu Music Streamer impressions

    That's great. Anyway the A+ 3.1 is still beta. It'll be some time before we get to hear feedback on how the pairing work out.

    Nice. The AN-J or AN-E? Would be interesting to hear how they sound on the solid state Rag.

    Just saw that Audirvana+ 3.1 supports network playback now. Any idea it can stream to mR?

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    That's the beauty of the rag isn't it. End game amp for head fi, and for those with shallower pockets, even hi fi. The KEF's are great. My choice would be a nice pair of Harbeths. Divine!

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Think your yggy/rag combo deserves a nice pair of standmounters too. I believe they are on par with speaker set-ups many times more expensive.

    iDSD micro Black Label. Tour details (page 147). Release info (page 153).

    Thanks for the detailed feedback. Indeed it takes quite a step up in amp to beat the internal one in the BL. I had used the iCAN SE and then added a iTube between them. Still I gravitate to using the BL on its own. It sounds awesome and as u say less space requirement, not to mention less...

    How does the Valhalla 2 compare with the BL's internal amp? Are they sonically quite different?
