    South East Michigan meet?

    Although @JEspina456 and I had to leave early, I wanted to thank our host and @givemetacos for putting this together. The location was neat, the company fantastic and the headphone selection second to none. We are already discussing a late summer meet and hope everyone can make it!

    South East Michigan meet?

    How did this happen? So after a long period of hiding out, I think I can make this one...I sure miss the community! I added myself to the sheet.

    Shinola Headphones

    I have them a good listen and they’re very nice for a closed-back. Alex Rosson of Audeze designed them so the pedigree is there. I think I’m going to pick up a pair this weekend. I’ll post impressions.

    Shinola Headphones

    Gave the Canfield Over Ears a test drive today at the Shinola flagship store in Detroit. You can read all about them on their website but I found the construction superb with these ‘phones having some heft to them. I found the sound signature to be on the warmer, more consumer-friendly side of...

    Reveal Plugins - DSP for Audeze Headphones.

    So I've downloaded the installer for Mac, ran it, but cannot find the .vst anywhere. Where does the installer place it on the Mac? Plan on using the plugin with JRiver.

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    You said Gen 5, which is also contained in EITR. I didn’t realize the issue was only limited to Yggy’s Gen 5 implementation.

    Shinola Headphones

    I just saw on Alex Rosson's Instagram account a blurry photo of a rack of headphones. They look like an Audeze-inspired design but I'm assuming these are a first look at the the upcoming Shinola Headphones. Audeze-Shinola partnership similar to the VPI-Shinola relationship? Looking forward to...

    IMPRESSIONS THREAD: 2017 Head-fi.org Southeastern Michigan Spring Meet at Paulson's Audio & Video

    I agree with AxelCloris. I still use my Grado SR-80e with my Rag/Yggy. (Weird analogy warning...) Kinda feels like driving back to your childhood home in your sports car.

    IMPRESSIONS THREAD: 2017 Head-fi.org Southeastern Michigan Spring Meet at Paulson's Audio & Video

    I'm jealous! First meet I've missed in the past 3 years... I really wish I could have heard some of the McIntosh gear as I've obsessed over it ever since I can remember. Looks like a great turnout with lots of familiar as well as new faces.

    Jaybird Freedom

    I believe it adjusts both when using the volume control on the headset. I don;t have them here with me but I believe that is the case.

    Schiit Ragnarok Amplifier

    I'm confused...is Ragnarok modular? I've read two separate reviews that refer to it as "modular" and referring to it as "upgradable". However, I don't believe it's described as modular or upgradable in the Schiit site. Does this mean there's potential for a tube variant in the future?

    Schiit Owners Unite

    The output will leave the amp balanced but if the incoming signal is not balanced, I would ask what is the point? Since Jotunheim is balanced from input to output, I would argue that feeding it a SE signal is selling its capabilities short. Take advantage of its fully balanced capabilities and...

    Schiit Owners Unite

    If you're talking about Chord Mojo, which I believe you are, it's output is SE only and will only feed your amp SE, not balanced. You will need to look at a purely balanced DAC option if you want to go balanced into a Jotunheim. Such as Yggy, Gumby or even the DAC card for the Jotunheim...if...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Saw this at Disney's Animal Kingdom yesterday and thought of this thread. It also gave me the opportunity to tell my kids about my DAC, known as the tree of life. They didn't care...at all.

    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    I just ordered an Emotiva ERC-3 to hook up to my new Yggy via AES. I agree with Baldr that CDs will come back and I wanted to make sure I purchased a quality transport before they become scarce.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    I own LCD-3 and Elear and feel the Audeze cans outclass the Elears in almost all categories except comfort. Don't get me wrong, I feel there's a place for the Elears in my headphone stable. Unfortunately, they are not the better of the two headphones IMO.

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Elear IMO. I think I'd put any headphone up against the Elear or Utopia in terms of comfort and the Focal would prevail.

    Sony MDR-Z7 W/Cables Barely Used Ser. No. 136

    Released in 2014, the MDR-Z7 have been Sony's flagship Hi Res audiophile headphone until the recently announced MDR-Z1r was released. These particular headphones were made in Japan and are serial number 136.   These headphones feature massive, and I mean massive, 70mm drivers which are similar...

    1964 Ears Adel IEMs

    Me too. The shame is that I prefer the frequency response afforded by APEX to the B1 ADEL.
