    Bottlehead Crack w/Speedball SOLD

    Built within the last 3 years, not by me. The work is clean and competent. A few small parts are upgraded as per the photos. Dead silent with my Sennheiser HD 6xx, gobs of power on tap. Sounds fantastic, excellent sense of depth and texture. Sale includes the JAN pictured as well as a set of...

    SOLD Audio GD R2R 11 DAC & Amp

    In great working condition, has plenty of gain for driving my HD 6xx, even enough gain on tap to comfortably provide volume through intensive EQ sequences. There's some light marking on the top of the unit, as shown in the photos. IMO this unit sounds great, regardless of what more empirical...

    Breakdown of Bifrost gens and versions?

    Hey folks I've got a trade offer and I'm trying to determine which iteration of the Schiit Bifrost I'm looking at. So far I haven't been able to find a collection of distinctions between gens and versions all in one place so I'm starting a thread. The model I'm looking at is labeled SCH04e. How...

    WTB Schiit modi+ magni

    Hey folks, looking for the stack. Strongly prefer from Gen 2 or up so the Modi has its own power supply, but if the price is right I'm not scared of Gen 1. Not trying to low-ball, but there's a good number of these floating around so hoping for an Ok deal. I could pick up locally near Chicago...

    Convince a speaker soundstage junkie to invest further into headphones?

    Hey HF community. This is a genuine inquiry, not an attempt to kick a hornets nest. I love the sensation of a soundstage filling a room, and I have a strong preference to a soundstage being in front of me. At this point, all of the gear in my setup has been chosen with the most primary criteria...

    Headphones with Magnepan detail (recommendations please)

    Hey folks, I've spent quite a bit more time over at Audiokarma.org but my handle is the same as here (and a number of other forums). However, Head-fi seems to be king for DAC, digital, and of course headphone concerns!   So I am back to ask the experts for a recommendation. I've been...

    RuneAudio Sound Signatures

    I'm very happily running a runeaudio server from a Raspberry Pi into my Schiit Modi. Just noticed under the settings that there are multiple sound signature options. RA's website claims that these changes are very subtle. Does anyone have opinions regarding these? Perhaps a link to someone...

    Raspberry Pi Windows 10 audio prospects

    I don't have any experience with Raspberries but I should be picking one up soon. Wondering if anyone can talk to me about which apps are available utilizing the new Windows IoT build. I'm interested in the possibility of figuring out how to integrate foobar or foobar mobile. I'm doing lossless...

    Fiiio X1 not recognizing music

    My X1 is having trouble recognizing the songs I've loaded to the micro SD card. So first things first: It's running the 1.3 firmware. The card is a Samsung 128g, class 10, 48mb/s card. It's correctly formatted as fat32. I've used foobar2000 to transfer 49.9g of lossless music to the card in the...

    Teach me to skin foobar2000?

    I started using foobar a little bit ago and I really like the program. So far I've spent a lot of time figuring out how to make sorting behave via string construction as well as vu plugin configuration and WASAPI playback to my DAC, etc. My point being I'm not completely new to the program -...
