    REVIEW: Nighthawk F-117

    Background: It has been a while since I got my hands on a new component which has excited me enough to bother writing a review. Ironically, my last review was actually for a phonostage—The Eastern Electric Minimax Phonostage which has been my reference for the last four years and one of the...

    Are the newer Sansa Clip+ & Fuzes better then e200 series?

    I've got an old Sandisk Sansa e270 I've used happily for some time. It has served me well as a small gym MP3 player, and I've always felt the sound quality was pretty good. I recently experimented with Rockbox and (though its noisey as hell navigating menus) I think it sounds better using my...

    Need a used DAC to use with SB Duet that is cheap and liquid

    I need a decent cheapie DAC that I can use with a SB Duet I just ordered temporarily. I'm in on the Eastern Electric DAC 001 pre-order, but that will take 2-3 months to come in. In the meantime I'd like to start with something cheap and used I can get my money back for. I was wanting to...

    Hey guys, some of you may recognize me though I don't post too often anymore, as my focus has been on speaker audio. I am very interested in ripping all of my CDs to a lossless compression and using a high end media center solution to feed my big rig. To preface things: I am an analog man. I...

    What are SR200s worth these days?

    I have a pair of Grado SR-200s I am not using and wondered what they are worth these days. I know most of Joe Grado's HP1000 series phones are worth their weight in gold and I'm wondering what the market value is for his SR200s in good condition.

    Logitech Harmony 550 remote

    I've got a logitech harmony 550 I want to sell. I bought the thing for my Westinghouse 42" LCD which happens to be one of the ONLY TVs it is documented to not play well with (due to the input scrolling rather than direct prompts for HDMI/Components and such). The thing is in perfect condition...

    Need to make my IPOD line out listenable

    I just picked up a refurbished gen 5 ipod video 30gb to integrate into my bimmer's sound system via an alpine interface (420i) and intravee ii. With the eq off, my sound bass is very anemic and the severe imbalance makes listening very distracting. The only EQ setting I've tried thus far is...

    A few questions regarding Creative X-Fi cards and gaming

    I'm awaiting delivery of a Logitech X-540 5.1 system for my desktop rig and am contemplating the purchase of an X-Fi card.

    Amplification solution for some vintage B.A. Speakers

    A friend of mine's father is sentimentally attached to a pair of Boston Acoustics floorstanders. They are from the last 70s/early 80s and are allegedly difficult to drive. He's tried powering them with a 150 wpc and says that though it sounds ok the NAD is running extreemly hot. I have a hard...

    Is there a worthwhile jukebox yets?

    I've got so much music, new and old, that I'd love to hear but wouldn't even think to listen to if it weren't in a jukebox playing on random. Is there anything worthwhile in the <$1000 range as far as mega-cd players go? I've already got an exceptional single cdp, so this would be just a...

    How do I change filters in my etymotics?

    I can't find the literature that came with my ER6is, and a quick search of head-fi revealed a few failed attempts to change filters which resulted in damage so I'm hoping to get some direction before I give it a shot. How do I change these badboys? A friend wants to audition them tomorrow and...

    I recieved my UR5s a few days ago, but haven't had the chance to do much listening due to a tremendous increase in school workload. I have listened to a pair of them on my phonostage and must say though, they are definitely impressive and a big improvement over the last grovers I'd heard...
