    Hey all, I am looking for a portable amp to use for BOTH portable and home use, and am looking to spend no more than $300. It will be used for my UE-5c's and Grado RS-2's. I have looked at the Tomahawk, Xenos 1HA-EPC, Supermicro IV, and so on and am not sure what to get. I have heard that...

    For sale is a 10 day old pair of AKG K81DJ's. They are in perfect conditions and will come with everything that came in the package (1/8 to 1/4 adapter, pleather case). The reason for selling is that they are just too tight on my head (I wear a size 8 hat, so needless to say I have a rather...

    Just got back from Ultimate Ears

    So, I had previously decided to get some custom IEM's, and was just going to get impressions done and send them in. But I found out that the Ultimate Ears office is in Irvine which isn't very far from where I am in Los Angeles, so I thought it would be better to go down and actually try the...

    FS: Mapletree Audio Ear+ HD

    Up for interest check is my MAD Ear amp. I have only had this amp for about a week, and the owner before me had it for only 4 weeks (I am the second owner). So the amp is only about 5-6 weeks old. This thing sounds amazing, especially with my Grado's, but I think I am going to get some custom...

    Going to my first purely computer setup, have some questions.

    So I have to decided to go to a computer based system for the first time, as it just seems so much easier and centralized. Anyways, I have looking at various soundcard options and am kind of lost. The main cards I have been looking at are the E-MU 1212M, 0404 PCI or USB, and the ESI Juli@. I...

    WTB: Mapletree Ear+ Purist HD or Singlepower PPX3

    I am looking to buy either one of the amps (preferably the Mapletree, but either would do). Amp must be in very good condition, so if you have one of these amps you would be willing to part with, send me a PM with what you would like to get for it. For the Singlepower I would consider the...

    Amp for K340/RS-2

    Well, I'm pretty sure I am going to give the K340 another shot, and this time I plan on driving them better than I was before. Currently I have a millet hybrid, which I know will not drive the AKG's, so it will be leaving me soon and I need to find an amp to replace it that drives the AKG's, but...

    CDP w/ DAC or w/o?

    Ok, here is my present situation: I am in need of a new source and I am on a budget of around $350. I have had two thoughts of what I should do and I am seeking feedback on what would be the best option for me. Option 1: Buy a NAD 521BEE and be done with it and not use a DAC. Option 2...

    Amp for AKG K340

    So I am about to purchase a K340, and have a couple questions about which amp I should get. I have heard that these are very hard to drive, so this is why I am a little concerned.

    tube amp < $300?

    I am looking for a tube amp for under 300 bucks, but I am not quite sure which one to go for. This will be driving a W100, so the amp must be able to drive low impedance cans. Write now I am looking at a Morgan Jones amp, because I have heard the Earmax Pro is awesome for the W100, and the...

    FS: Gilmore Lite

    I have decided to move on to tube amps, so I will be selling my Gilmore Lite. I actually just bought this about a month ago, mainly because I heard of its synergy with Grado's, but now I decided to sell the Grado's, and with my desire for tube amps, this is being sold. Cosmetically it is in...

    W1000 vs. W100

    I am looking at purchasing either one of these headphones, but I have a question first. Which of the two, W1000 or W100, would be better suited for rock? I have tried searching, but don't really get the answer I am looking for, so this thread had to be started. Thanks for any input.

    FS: Grado SR-225

    So, I have decided to sell my beloved SR-225's. I have had these for about a year now, and they are in basically perfect condition. One of the rubber stops is missing, but it does not cause it to fall off. The fit is tight enough where it does not effect anything at all really. The only other...

    WTB: Audio Technica W10VTG or W11JPN

    I know this could be a long shot, but what the hell. Would prefer the W10VTG, but would seriously consider buying the JPN as well if the opportunity came around. PM me if you have any of the headphones that you might be willing to let go and hopefully we can work something out.

    FS: Go-Vibe Portable Amp

    I bought this a year ago, and have decided that I no longer need a portable amp. Comes with two opamps (OPA2227 and 4556AD(?)) with the latter one being installed in it right now. I will also include a Cardas 6 inch mini to mini (the one available at Headroom) with the amp, a $14 value. It has a...

    Would a DAC help this setup?

    Currently I am running a Zen Vision:M DAP to my Gilmore Lite. My question is whether or not a DAC (such as a LiTe DAC-AH) would considerably help my setup? Basicly, would it be worth the $200 or so for the uprgrade? Or would I be better of buying a decent PCDP with a good line out (Like a...
