    Good closed phones for around $50?

    Hi, We need to buy a set of headphones for a niece newly off to college who wants to listen to music but not roommates. Several years ago I bought a set of Sony MDR-V6s for my wife - she loves them at work but they seem to be a bit too pricey for this gift. I haven't been following phones...

    WTB: Sony Classic PCDP

    Hi - My trusty old D-10 is working intermittently in my office rig, time to replace it. I have a D-25S, I'd love to find one of those again or something similar. I'm not interested in a $100+ unit, it doesn't get played that often. Anyone want a D-10 for parts or fixin' up? My guess it doesn't...

    D-10 playing problem

    I love my office setup, a Sony D-10, a McCormack MID (5wpc) amp, Twisted Pair Designs cables, Etymotics (ER4Ps) phones, and a pair of efficient Omega TS3 speakers when I need them. All has been well for quite awhile, but earlier in the week, I put the D-10 on pause mode when someone came in to...

    I’ve been spoiled…anyone got suggestions on a good portable CDP?

    Hi, I've been in high-end audio for awhile, but I'm new to the headphone world (with the exception of some Koss cans in the early 70's). I have an excellent CD source for my home rig (Goldmund Mimesis 39DA++) - closest thing I've heard to my turntable. Recently I bought a pair of Ety ER-4ps...

    Sony cans only available in Japan?

    Hi, A friend is going to Japan in a couple of weeks & he is going to check out prices on Sony's V6s to see if they are better priced there (as a gift to my wife). Does anyone know if I should have him check out any other high quality phones that may only be available there? Thanks, Bob
