    cd transport - old cd player or new transport?

    In answer to my own question, i purchased a cambridge cxc and compared it to the cd5400. It seemed cleaner sounding BUT it had an issue for me 1. it skipped on cdr discs that the cd5400 read perfectly. So i returned it.

    Grado Fan Club!

    I found it too thick sounding, however the x-cans are brilliant with the hd650 and i'm really surprised more people don't use this combination (but then they are decades old) d

    Grado Fan Club!

    I recently bought the 325x to try out with my asgaard (mostly using vinyl) and i find it a perfect match as it brings out vocals well. Up until now i have struggled with a headphone that sounds good (to me) as a contrast to my modified (custom cans) hd650 through a highly modified hybrid x-cans...

    Cayin N3Ultra: an Entry-level Portable DAP that Delivers a Complete Vacuum Tube Audio Experience

    I have had the n3pro for 3 years and it still works well with reasonable battery life, my one reservation is that the software is not as flexible as e.g. foobar (android) d

    using android tablet as transport

    I have a kindle fire 10hd and installed foobar/wavelet (all files resampled to 48Hz in realtime by foobar) to play music. I use mainly lossless files and a dac dongle, i am pleasantly surprised at the SQ, the soudstage is larger than through my n3pro. Any thoughts, i did it simply to have one...

    Cayin N3Ultra: an Entry-level Portable DAP that Delivers a Complete Vacuum Tube Audio Experience

    Interesting comment, i agree digital can be fatiguing, i have found the best (not perfect like vinyl playback but ok) are n3pro or chord mojo 1 fed from coax via dx200 or from usb from laptop coupled with meze 99/sennheiser momentum 2 wired/oppo pm3 d

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    IMO the 99's are very dependent on the dac/amp/dap being used, they work well with my n3pro and even better with my mojo1 but not so well with my desktop dac/amp d

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    IMO the oppo pm3 does scale, the difference between a dap (eg cayin n3pro with tubes or ibasso dx200) and the mojo (original) is spectacular as is the asgaard 3, for me the greater power and control of the mojo/asgaard gives more vibrancy, soundstage and immersion, it sounds like music rather...

    dongle with least power drain for fullsized portable (low impedance) headphones

    I wonder if anyone knows the answer to this, i am using a pee52 (a&k) and it seems to run down the battery on my kindle fire much more rapidly than the headphone out? thanks d

    jitterbug

    I have used this for some time (believing it worked) but still found my laptop usb to my irdac2 flat and without the life or vibrancy or vinyl. I took the jitterbug out of circuit and the sound became much more lifelike and vibrant and listenable. I wonder if there was a conflict with my kimber...

    I know this has been asked many times over the years but there does not seem to be any after-market pads that sound the same as the sennheiser ones and last longer, i seem to be getting through pads every 18 months (more or less daily use for an hour or so) and am looking for ones that sound the...

    wired noise cancelling over ear headphones?

    Hi i want a pair of wired over ear headphones that are noise cancelling. I am not interested in bluetooth. I would like them to sound similar to the hd650 or oppo pm3, SQ is my paramount consideration along with good noise cancellation. Any suggestions?
