    Little Dot MK VI / Little Dot MK VIII SE Owners Unite

    I just bought a Little Dot MK VI and was wondering what they changed in the "+" version?  Do the two amps use the same tubes?

    Black Treasure CV181Z (6SN7) tubes - Grant Fidelity "Select" matched pair

    Some of the best 6SN7 tubes you can buy regardless of price.   This "cherry picked" set is a totally different ballgame compared to what you buy on Ebay.  These are from Grant Fidelity who do extra precise matching and screening.  They have "Select by LJX-GF" printed under the regular logo...

    NAD D3020 Discussion Thread

    It's got a howitzer of a headphone amp.  It has a generally powerful sound that fills out the crucial lower-midrange area.  There is some slight midrange edge (in a good way) that gives guitars crunch and growl.     If you listen to mostly girl with a guitar stuff, you'll be able to find...

    KEF LS50 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Review

      Yeah I'd agree that a better amp would make it sound better.  I have two requirements that make rule out a lot of amplifiers though: 1) small form factor and 2) lower-midrange centered sound with smooth, relaxed treble.  Any suggestions?  I was thinking of the Rega Brio R but not sure it...

    Foobar oversampler SoX

    I've been using the SoX oversampling plugin for foobar lately at 192khz and very high.  Love the sound - 3D and super smooth treble.  Just wanted to share the info in case anyone wanted to try it.

    NAD D1050 DAC and headphone amplifier

    Zool, can you extract the version of the firmware that you are using?  I'd like to hear it as well.

    Anyone using Arcam irDAC & what do you think of it?

    It's really good.  Only negative I can think of is that the sound doesn't have the "weight" of some other different voiced DACs.  There's a sense of lightness to it that you may love or hate or be indifferent to.  But it's great at just about everything else.  Terrific smooth treble extension...

    That's some really useful info.  I can't find the old firmware anywhere online, but NAD's firmware updater tool has an option where you can grab the firmware from the device into a file.  Is there any chance you could do that?

     I got my cherry green WASD today and it seriously kicks some ass.  Despite the 80g, they don't feel heavy to me.  I don't think they are heavier than typical throw-in rubber dome keyboards.  Only the shift key on this particular keyboard is slightly heavy.  Other than that, it's perfect.  Feels...

    Dali Zensor 3

      I have fond memories of Klipsch (didn't know they were American) as their ProMedia 2.1's were my first speaker system.   Continuing the English trend, I also have a pair of Cambridge Audio Aero 2's coming in.  I became intrigued by these after they got Hi-Fi Choice's highest award for...

    Are there any unlabeled keyboards with cherry blue switches besides the Das Keyboard brand?

    Dali Zensor 3

    I'm in the US but find myself reading mostly UK media for some reason.  I think that started when I started following Arsenal many years back.  Now British-isms are regularly creeping into my vocab.   I'm actually looking for the opposite of the V sound.  I like sweet mids with plenty of...

    Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead

    Thanks that's pretty helpful actually.     I became interested in the Concero mainly because a reviewer who I've been following for a while (the guy at ranked it extremely high in his DAC index.  But I think it may not quite be for me based on what I've read in this...

    12" wooden desktop speaker stands

    For sale are a pair of wooden speaker stands that I had custom made.  They are 12 inches high, and the base plates are 6 x 6 inches.  The middle is two pieces of wood in a V-shape.  They're finished in a matte black.  They'd make nice desktop stands.   I'll sell them for $35 shipped USPS...

    Speaker stands... Non-sense or science?

    Putting speakers on a tall vertical foam block vs a solid stand sounds different to me.  Not necessary better or worse, but clearly different.

    Some OVERRATED High End Gear.

    Senneheiser HD280 — the absolute worst headphones on the planet.  They sound like if you took the tweeter out of a 2-way speaker and put it in a headphone shell.

    Resonessence Labs Concero discussion/review thead

    The only negative I've read across many reviews of the Concero (non-HD version) is that it has less "heft", "weight", "meat", or "body" compared to some other DACs.  I'm curious as to whether anyone here feels this is true.  I might get one to do a comparison with the NAD D 1050 next week.  It's...

    Does anyone have experience with the Kef LS50?

    Do you use blu-tack or isolation foam or anything like that?  What stands do you have?
