    Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 (Hybrid Amp) - Condensed FAQ and Info Thread

    I've had the Maverick A1 for going on two years and use it daily from my PC source. I have yet to have any issues with the tubes.   I haven't listened to enough other amps in this price range to answer your bass question but I think you can find plenty listed here on Head-Fi with decent...

    Koss Review Fun

    Just pulled these out of a long forgotten box of headphones and they still work and look like new. Too funny. Definitely not on my list of "2-buy" headphones but you could do much worse for $10-20.   Looks like all these links are dead now as no more Ah well, it was amusing while...

    Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 (Hybrid Amp) - Condensed FAQ and Info Thread

    I have the A1 and the D2. Both are connected to a Win10 PC (FLAC) and the D2 is also connected to a Mac Mini (ALAC) and Shanling PCD3000A CD player. For headphones I mainly use Alessandro MS2 and the A1 is ported to a pair of JBL ProPerformers speakers. I've had the A1, with upgraded tubes, for...

    Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 (Hybrid Amp) - Condensed FAQ and Info Thread

      I was under the impression that, as an integrated amplifier, the RCA was input or tube pre-out only. Has this changed?   Per Maverick Site ... "~~A1 is also a tube pre-amplifier, therefore, you can connect your Amplifier or even connecting a Sub-woofer to the A1 via the tube pre-output."

    Secret Scam of Cheap Earbuds

    I ran across this article, "The Secret Scam Of Cheap Earbuds", that is enlightening on the subject of headphones. I'm not surprised by the article or it's contents. In my opinion, it's easy to see how DAPs and Pods have fueled the headphone revolution. Look around any music store or music...

    SIGN UP! Zanth's Headphone Loan Programme

    Zanth was supposed to restarted the program back in July, but it appears no one has heard or received anything. Since it's now November, I think it safe to assume this program died.

    I need an excuse to buy toys

    Two approaches ... the real and the surreal ... 1. Put a small part of your money aside in an account just for you (your reward). 2. Spend it all now because the world ends in 2012. Good luck. You have my condolences for such a tough decision. Easy answer for me as I have no money this year.

    Ohio State/Columbus/Central Ohio Meetup

    I was looking forward to this meet but am certainly willing to wait, especially so more can show up. Count me in on a re-schedule. Can anyone locate a place in Columbus for Dec or Jan? I've never been, so afraid I'm no help. I'm up for the restaurant idea. As I said earlier, Panera has a...

    vinyl albums...

    Online Google search, eBay, and more. Local used shops, pawn shops and sometimes comic book shops stock used albums. I gave away all my albums years ago. While I occasionally miss the turntable action, I won't turn back. Good luck.

    Ohio State/Columbus/Central Ohio Meetup

    Status? OP?? I looked into UC but nothing for free, would have to be scheduled and it's too late for the 21st. If the OP doesn't respond and or we can't get Columbus, I vote go Dayton.

    Ohio State/Columbus/Central Ohio Meetup

    So are we set for the 21st? Location? Time?? Panera was just a suggestion as there are quite a few around, they are cheap and the meeting room does have doors to be closed off from the public. However it would have to be booked soon to get ensure the 21st. I'm fine with Dayton and/or Columbus...

    Michael Jackson's This Is It

    My economy is tight, so I must wait for the DVD. If I have to pay a show price, I'd prefer to see him alive. I agree on the getting tired of all the posthumous sales but you can't argue he wasn't an extraordinary talent. RiP Michael, and give a kick to those still trying to ride your coat tails.
