    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    Nice review! :) I got the RED and I really like it. Hearing that the battery drainage wasn't that much different after all between the two made the decision for me to go with RED. Really nice nifty little thing!

    Reply to review by 'foolwolf' on item 'AudioQuest - Nighthawk Headphones'

    Really nice review, well written. I have to say that my hour session with the cans yielded another result though. I found them to be far too expansive for the sound they delivered. Here in Sweden they cost roughly like apair of MP-3's or the Hifimann 400i. Well above the price range of HD650...

    Samsung Galaxy S6 vs. S7 Phone for Audio

    Can't say, but if you buy a phone for music, the S7 would not be my recommendation. I have it and find the audio qulaity to be subpar of that of SONY and Oneplus phones by quite a noticeable bit. I haven't listened to the S6. If you are determined to get a Samsung (cause the S7 except sound...

    Samsung Galaxy S7 - Best next audiophile phone?

    Well, I have the Samsung Galaxy S7 (European version if that matters?), and I find the sound quality with headphones regardless of tweaking the eq and eextras to be quite bad to be honest. Comparing with Galaxy S4, Oneplus 2 and SONY Z2 the S7 just sounds like a cheap player. No immersion, no...

    A new DAP - the constant struggle of finding a good new player.

    Thanks both for explaining. So if the players I have mentioned are only sideways steps - what would be the step up? 901? Anything else that you could recommend or is the iBasso just very price-worthy contender that it is more sense to save up for better headphones? I mean, I won't shy away from...

    A new DAP - the constant struggle of finding a good new player.

    Thanks for the input - but based on what? Have you heard the Cayin or Colorfly? Those are the ones I have heard SHOULD sound great - not sure if as great or equal though. Just curious :)

    V-MODA M-100 - Comfortable, or not?

    Just a quick question - did you experience the sound to change when you had the new XL cups? I bought the new XL cups since I have expereinced an increase in irritable ears over the years. So lately I have sold several headphones and the V-Moda I have gotten teh XL cushions for - but to me, the...

    Pioneer U-05 USB DAC/amp with dual ES9016

    Can't say - I'm in Europe, but you have a small adapter for the main European connectors. Is that answer enough? If not please try to specify and I can have a closer check when I get back home. Cheers!

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    For some music I do prefer my AKG Q701's better. The clarity is better than the in comparison warm sounding HE400i. I have to say that since I changed DAC/AMP to Pioneer U-05s instead of my NAD 1050 - I enjoy my HE400i more. The Pioneer has a more direct and clear sound than the NAD that was a...

    Reply to review by 'foolwolf' on item 'iFi Nano iDSD'

    Nice review. This one adds to others I have read and partly one of the reasons I ordered the iFi iCan Nano. I really like that little amp. Makes for a nice combo with my iBasso DX90.   I'm thinking about getting the iDSD Nano and pair the two for my laptop and use for portable sound-system.

    Reply to review by 'foolwolf' on item 'iBasso DX90 Portable Digital Audio Player'

    I can't say that I agree with your review - but that is because I can't say I share your experience at all. I find the DX90 to be a huge improvement over more or less any ordinary DAP, IPod, COWON or smartphone out there that I have tested. It is an improvement over the DX50 as well.   I can...

    found AKG K140!!

    OK, I tired of looking at the sorry mess on my shelf so I took some time to e-mail the guys at AKG. They told me that I had to get in contact with the professional branch - and after e-mailing them I have now a PDF waiting for me with spare part lists for the AKG K140 that should help me find...

    So far, except from some weird characters - that got fixed with the last patch - everything been smooth sailing with the DX90. Liked it so much I sold my DX50. To me it does all the things DX50 did, just slightly better in many aspects and some really better.   I do notice that the DX90 is...

    Just wanted to mention that I received my player yesterday. I have tracked it since it appeared on DHL webapge. Everything went smoothly - even though information from iBasso is minimal.   Having said that, when I ordered my DX50 I had some troubles with the player and were in contact with...

        Thanks for clarifying that one! I'm a bit sceptical regarding burn in. Can't say that I have the ears for it to really matter I guess. I have heard people talk about it regarding headphones but never DAC's. I guess it will simply sound a bit better the more I listen to it :)   I...

    Just got mine. The same build as the DX50, but much tighter jacks so far. Feels a bit more "apt" and responsive.  Haven't listened so far, need some food first and ever the decision - which record to listen to first?   One thing though, what is the extra cable that ends in some sort of square...

    I really like Norah Jones as well. Though I have to admit that the music I listen to ranges from being in tune with high resolution to well - not exactly benefitting of HD quality ;) But, what they lack in finery and high resolution benefits, they make up for with sheer energy and enthusiasm...

    PONO - Neil Youngs portable hi-res music player

    Well, honestly it feels like a market stunt. Make a high interest in PONO to show that there is an interest to make sure that the big three is prepaired to play ball. Technical jargong to sell something old in a new way. The main thing seems to be a bit like GOG.com - offer music in a high...

    PONO - Neil Youngs portable hi-res music player

    I'll keep you posted, hope to hear from them soon regarding this.   Using FLAC and having Linn records going ape all over suggests that it could be an open format and environment, but I want to know for sure.
