    crinacle's IEM FR measurement database

    I have nearly all the KZs and I tried to get a rough sweep of the "quality available" and sometimes it's quite hit and miss but otherwise, the ZS3 is awful. ZS5v2 was bloody awful, ZSR was the best of the bunch and wasn't a unicorn. Given the measurements and how it stands up sonically wise...

    6922 Tube Review - 17 Top 6922 6N23P E88CC CCa 7308 E188CC tubes

    I found this thread from somewhere, just chimed in to say that I somehow have a Reflektor 6N23P-EB from 1974 that I got cheap and in very new condition. Is that very revered? I use it in my OTL 6080 tube amp (not a crack, nothing as crass as that) It has been a really great tube but I haven't...

    AUNE S6 DAC/AMP Combo

    Indeed.  Also, jotunheim's DAC is um, a afterthought rather than a main feature. This amp's DAC is the main feature.   I mean like if it ain't broke don't fix it is their ethos with the AK4495 rather using the AK4490 which they didn't have. AK4497 is expensive by the way ... Ah and it...

    Testing Op-Amps: Can You "Hot Swap" Without Fear of Damage?

      Tbh, that cap mod is just stupid. It just introduces more lead inductance which leads to a worsened reactance which if it makes a difference is negative impact.   Also, most opamp upgrades usually won't make any difference.

    Questyle CMA600i first impressions thread

    Let's not try and act as the experts here shall we? The line in on the cma600i clips past 75% on my phone as apparently the line in goes to the DAC not the preamp. It is not the USB input.
