    foobar2000 >>Topping D10 + Garage 1217 Polaris

    For several years I'd been using a Schiit "stack" (Wyrd + Modi2 + Vali) with foobar2000 for my HD580 and then HD600. Along the way I upgraded the amp to a Garage1217 Polaris which was a noticeable improvement. With foobar2000 I had been using very nice convolver tweaks with both member _gl's...

    Suggestions for dealing with an odd issue with my Senn HD cans pls....

    I've had a problem with buzzing in my left side of my old HD580s on and off now for over a year.   I solved it originally when I found the lollipop driver wasn't fully seated properly.  A few days ago the buzzing returned and I opened things up for a look.  Again I found the lollipop wasn't...

    Debating restoring my old HD580 when I have a new HD600. What would you do?

    Late last year my vintage December 1993 HD580s (purchased from Tyll's Headroom just after the Stereophile review of the HD580/Supreme amp combo) had a fatal driver failure.  Over the years I've replaced quite a few parts and the headset is in great shape still.    When I went online seeking...

    Having issues with CD Cover Art between EAC and both foobar2000 and MusicBee... HELP PLS

    First I am brand new at this process.  I did some digging and went with the following:   Exact Audio Copy v1.1 to rip CDs into .wav and then convert to .flac with an external program.    When loading CDs I'm prompted to search for cover art with the CD Cover Art Downloader.  I save my lossless...

    My original Headroom Supreme finally died

    I bought this unit and a Senn HD580 from Bozeman in Dec. '93 after reading the Jan '94 Stereophile article which made me an "early adopter." I'm not exactly sure what broke but one channel is now dead. I haven't poked inside nor considered sending it in for repair as I sure its way beyond...

    K81DJ and the "aircraft altitude ear popping syndrome"

    The one issue I am having with my AKG K81DJs that I haven't seen mentioned at all by anyone else is the (for lack of a better description) aircraft altitude ear popping syndrome. Here I mean that with a good seal I find my ears will plug up until I yawn or otherwise articulate my jaw. Thinking...

    Who is planning on building the PPA for sale to non-DIYers?

    I ask because I'm not even sure I can identify what some might refer to as the "normal suspects." I can easily handle a soldering iron but available time and parts gathering hassles are issues that lead me to ask this question as I'd be interested in getting in the queue for one. My original Dec...

    Original Headroom Supreme upgrade suggestions?

    I bought my Headroom Supreme in January 1994. It does not have the power DIN connector having instead room inside for 4 AA batteries. Hooking up a Base Station One would be problematic at best. My Supreme also has the older BB604 op amp which was replaced with BB627s in later production. Not...
