    Using my Headphone Amp in Japan

    I've lived near Yokohama for 3 years and have had no trouble with any US spec electronics functioning at the lowered voltage. I have a couple computers and a LCD projection TV that do not seem to be effected at all. As far as grounding goes I just keep my fingers crossed and buy extra...

    iPod & portable amp users poll?

    Can anyone comment on the quality of the lineout with the Sik Cable? How does it compare to that of the iRiver series or the Karma? I can't make up my mind which one to get and I'm torn up as to whether I should decide based on formats supported or quality of the lineout or maybe the fact...

I bought the cd before we pulled out of Thailand and all of my listening is done on hard disc MP3 player. The software I have on my laptop is not...

    Gary went out of his way to take pictures of the headphones I was interested in. He even borrowed a camera to do so! His emails were always very prompt and easy to understand. His price was very reasonable. I would recommend Gary to anyone interested in some of his gear.

    The ATH W1000's

    I own the W1000 but not the CD-3000 or the HD600. I love the sound of them, but you may want to try them with an amp that is known to be "warm." I have heard that many people enjoy the W1000 with a tube amp. These are very comfortable headphones as well. As for the price the dollar is very...

    Dimensions of W1000

    I was looking at these... Pelican Case Based on the dimensions above it looks like it will fit. The "Pick and Pluck" foam you just kind of pull out to make the shape you need inside. It's pretty simple to use. It's basically like 3d perforation. A friend of mine showed me the case he uses...

    Dimensions of W1000

    I know this one sounds a little odd, but could anyone measure the dimensions of the W1000 for me? I'm out of town and can't measure mine. I found a place that sells nice hard cases but I'm not sure which dimensions I need for the interior. Thanks again for the help guys! --ROK3

    Crosfeed Board Question

    I'm an ignorant bastard... If you look in the picture right above where I was reading you can see the model number of the resistor clearly printed right on the side of it... (RN55) Looks like 1/8 W is fine It's nice when you can answer your own questions... --ROK3

    Crosfeed Board Question

    What resistors are best to use with the crosfeed board from Tangent's website? From what I could gather the 1/4 W RN60 (Vishay/Dale) won't fit. Will the RN55's (1/8W) work? The diagram from Chu Moy calls for 1/4 W. Thanks again for the help! --ROK3
