    Micro iUSB3.0 Impressions Thread

    I have just tried to purchase this new from Futureshop, who have been told that it is no longer for sale. Could iFi audio confirm this is the case, and if they intend to launch a replacement?

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    Just thought I would add my impressions of the HD800S. and HD800.   I am now using both headphones with the Lumin S1 directly feeding a Trilogy Audio 933 Headphone Amplifier. In my personal opinion, the HD800S is a very worthy upgrade to the HD800 as it offers a very detailed bass that I think...

    Questyle CMA800R X 2 (Balanced Setup)

    For sale are two Questyle CMA800R Headphone Amplifiers used in dual mono for the ultimate headphone sound. There is nothing to compare at this price. The price is for both units. They were purchased directly from Questyle when first introduced. I will also include the balanced cable they...

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    Over the years I have tried many headphones in an attempt to better the HD800. Although I have not tried the HE1000 or LCD4, experience tells me they will not offer anything substantially better for the price to be paid.   It is far more important to match the amplifier. By far the best match...

    Lumin T1 Audiophile Network Server

    This is in first class condition and only used for one week. I am only selling as I have upgraded to the Lumin S1. This is a superb network player that is so easy to use, far far better than any PC based system. Go to the Lumin website for full specifications. Photos are of the actual item for...

    LUMIN - The Audiophile Network Music Player

    I would strongly advise borrowing one for a comparison. the S1 has a superb three dimensional DAC, which is why I bought it to replace my T1.

    LUMIN - The Audiophile Network Music Player

    I agree with all the positive comments regarding Lumin products.   After years of ploughing money into PC based FLAC delivery, I took the plunge and bought a Lumin T1. I just couldn't believe how good it sounded, with a superb DAC built in that outclasses the Eximus DP1 (and that is a damn...

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    So you know money isn't everything, one of the best DAC's I have heard with the dual CMA800R is the Teac UD-501 using XLR. Be patient though, it needs A LONG burn in period. at the other end of the scale, I also tried a Weiss 202 that sounded horrendous.

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    I couldn't agree more. I am currently using two CMA800R with the Teac UD-501 DAC connected with XLR cables. It really is a great sounding setup.

    Teac Reference Line UD-501 USB DAC "DSD"

    With regards to USB noise from a PC/laptop. I would strongly recommend using the iFi USB Audio Power Supply and Gemini cable. This makes a massive difference to the sound. I could not live without one. It works a treat with the Teac DAC.   Websites here: http://www.ifi-audio.com/en/iUSB.html...

    Teac Reference Line UD-501 USB DAC "DSD"

    New to this Teac forum, but I do agree this is a great DAC. I initially bought this as a temporary measure until the DAC I wanted was available. However, I may just keep it, as it is really growing on me. I do believe it needs a lot of burn in time, but just gets better. Prior to this I had the...

    Audiolab M-DAC vs. TEAC UD-501?

    Yes, I agree. The Teac is a great sounding piece of kit. I am using it balanced XLR to a pair of Questyle CMA800R Headphone amplifiers. I think it needs a lot of running time to fully burn in, but is definitely worth the wait!

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    I too had exactly the same issue when I bought my first Questyle amp. Before sending it back, I offered to replace the internal fuses to try and save the hassle of replacing it, but they wanted it back with the fault present. After testing, they told me the issue WAS the fuses after all.   As...

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    I totally agree with your comments. I also used to have that Sony SACD, but sold it a very long time ago.   Initially, my plan was to buy the Questyle CAS192, and use a passive preamp to control my two CMA800R amps, but was told by Alden that they had stopped making it. Therefore, I was not...

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    According to Alden at Questyle, they are working on an updated version of their CAS192 DAC to include DSD. This should also make for an interesting partnership with the CMA800R. Up to now, I have tried the CMA800R with the Eximus, Naim DAC and the recent Teac DAC. Impressive listening with all...

    Questyle CMA800 Current Mode amp

    The Nuforce looks an interesting design as well. The dual mono idea seems to be catching on.   When I got my first CMA800R, I tried it using fixed output from an Eximus and then a Naim DAC. I found the sound to be better using variable output, especially from the Naim, as this added slightly...
