    AMB Delta1 Input Impedance Calculation

    Hello folks, I'm trying to purchase components in order to build an AMB Delta1 attenuator. However, I'm not certain what I should set the Zatt value to in the calculator. I'll have three inputs within the amp. The first will be the Gamma1/Gamma2 stack. The second is a Phono pre-amp. I've...

    Any old fart head-fi'ers still around?

    I'm still around. Just redesigned my M3 amp assembly to include AMB's digital display and I/O selector.

    Audeze LCD-2.2 wood cracking and fastener failure

    Hi All, I was working through the process of trying to replace the yoke and fasteners on my LCD-2.2s, when I noticed a crack in the wood ring that surrounds the driver I was trying to repair.  At that point, I decided it was best to send the whole headphone in for service, as it is still under...

    FS: BNIB Astell&Kerns AK Jr (Price Drop)

    Hi All, I have a brand new, never used Astell & Kerns AK Jr that I want to sell.  As you can see in the pictures, the wrapping is still on the box. I bought it as a packaged deal with a pair of LCD2.2s but, I already have a Gen 1 FiiO X5 that works well for portable duty.  I am asking for $400...

    RWAK100 - iriver AK100 mod by RWA

    So, it is claimed that the RWAK100 has the same sound characteristics as the AK100 but, everything is "better".  I'm a bit concerned that these characteristics are going to pair poorly with the Momentum, the Vsonic GR06 and the HD650, particularly in comparison to the DX100.  Has anyone here...

    Internal sound card for music, movies and gaming? Xonar DX?

    Hi guys, I need to replace my EMU 0404 with something suitable for music, movies and games.  I was going to pick up an Asus Xonar DX but, I need to confirm that the EAX emulation actually works properly in-game, and does not product distortion when listening to any audio source.  Does anyone...

    emu 0404 alternative

    I have the same problem with my PCI EMU 0404.  In addition, the card sometimes "locks up", producing a constant tone during simultaneous audio playback and hard drive access.

    iRiver iHP-140

    Hello, I've got 2 (two) iRiver iHP-140s in my hands.  One is in very good shape, with minimal use, while the other is in fair shape, bordering on poor.  Both work well and have remotes that function fine but, I can only seem to find the charger for one.  I'm was about to recycle these but, I'd...

    The culture of headphones and portable audio

    I don't believe that the search for an aesthetically pleasing aural experience can easily blamed for or, exchanged with antisocial behavior.  Speaking only for myself, my desire to remain disengaged from people exists independently of my desire to or the act of listening to music outside of my...

    How on earth do you juggle two expensive hobbies: audio and photography?

    Quote: Are you still chasing the newest hardware?  Development of desktop hardware has slowed down in the the last year, for a number of reasons.  Not least of which is the fact that desktop hardware remains relevant a good bit longer than it used it.  I'm using an antiquated overclocked...

    How on earth do you juggle two expensive hobbies: audio and photography?

    I'm gainfully employed so, that helps.   My last purchase in audio was a Cowon X7 about a year ago.  Before that, it was a Samsung solid state PMP.  That purchase was made in 2007.  I made the bulk of my audio purchases in highschool.  There are things I want to purchase but, my current...

    Sonos system feeding a headphone amp

    Sonos system feeding a headphone amp

    I ended up calling Sonos and they said that the hardware will not pass an audio file to an external DAC if it is of higher resolution than 48khz/16bit. I was interested in the Duet for its wireless remote, but if the touch is of higher quality then I may consider that instead.
