    Nuforce Primo 8 - an Audiophile Phase Coherent Quad Balanced Armature Driver IEM - Impressions

    Nope, that's a quad balanced armature for you. You're not going to get anywhere near the impact of a dynamic driver. What you can do is make sure there is a proper seal. Try tip rolling.

    Introducing Lola, a new headphone from Blue Microphones

    Nice. Very nice.   I here I thought I was happy with a HD650, K7XX and DT880. It never ends.

    If you're looking for a combined mic pre and AD converter you'd be hard pressed because most decent pres are designed for a pro market with a separate 'proper' AD conversion section. The all in ones like Blue Icicle intended for budding vlogists and YouTube artists looking for a cheap entry into...

    Review by 'morethansense' on item 'Wyrd USB Decrapifier'

    I am an amateur recording engineer that mainly uses a laptop pc on location with a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. The bus power is no doubt as noisy as a baby with a full diaper that's up way past bedtime. I use the same interface at home with monitors, etc. but I had a HUGE problem with the...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

      I'm basically envisioning a SYS on 'roids. Asgard/Bifrost/Lyr sized chassis. Combo TRS/XLR inputs!   3 selectable outputs with independent mixes. Think pro-audio 'Sends on Faders' type.   Touch to select input, press (the only) encoder to mute/unmute selected, turn for levels.   And...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

      I personally use MyUS.com I have never tried anything else so I can't say if they're the best or cheapest per se, but they haven't failed me once for five orders the past year with with a total value of over USD 3 grand. I've shipped my phone, pre-amps, AD/DA converters, microphones. No...

    Shure 535 vs. Noble 4

      Yeah I don't think it was meant to be hot-swappable. I've already bent the pins on my Noble 4 though, I don't like how the pins aren't supported by shell housing around the plastic part of the plug.

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    (Insert facetious comment about the multitude of off-topic chatter here.)   This is me doing a comparison (series of vague one-liners) of audio signatures between the K7XX, DT880 (250 ohm) and the Soundmagic HP200. All through a Schiit Asgard (original flavour) via Antelope Orion 32.    ...

    But it's not just ones and zeroes a DAC is working with, correct?

    The linearity/sensitivity of any electrical component is affected by temperature because of physical reasons. Especially semiconducting devices used in digital electronics.

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

      Are they sitting in the same position on your head? Newton's Third Law means that forces on both sides should be at least very very close as I don't see much lateral force coming from the band. It's most probably a pressure issue. Some memory foam only reacts at a certain temperature range...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

      Unless you want a DAC/amp combo unit, a DAC won't help much. If on a budget, I'm not sure what you use that receiver for, but take the PREOUT L&R (Ref Image) on the top right section into a amp (a Magni or Asgard should be plenty) if you want to make sure your K7XXs are well driven.  ...

      You can e-mail them for quotes, or even just add to cart to check shipping to your address really easily.   My Wyrd got shipped direct from them for the cost + ~39USD to metro Perth via FedEx Intl Priority. Conversion rates thru Paypal are normally 3-4 cents to the dollar lower.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I have been to many recording studios is my relatively short career thus far all over Australia. The number of DSD ADCs I have seen are less than the number of thumbs I have. And I lost half one in an accident. The studio manager also called it a b****y waste of money and he'd rip the sales...
