    Weak dollar good or bad for headfi?

    I've started investing in some stock with moderate success while head-fi was down. During that time I was wondering how the cheaper dollar would affect the 'head-fi economy' because technically speaking, a used headphone, amp or source overseas in europe or asia could actually accumulate value...

    FS: RSA HR-2

    This is an extremely early version of the HR-2 amp and has some rather unusual asthetic details compared to the regular production versions. First off, it has a non-polished black aluminium case, a black volume knob and it also lacks silk screening. Interestingly, it doesn't even have a serial...

    IC: Ray Samuel Audio Emmeline HR-2

    I'm considering to sell my HR-2 amp to finance a trip to europe. As you see I haven't fully decided yet if I will sell this or not but if the price is right, then I will. This particular HR-2 is one of the earliest examples. It doesn't even have a serial number which puts it in "near" prototype...

    How to get rid of hiss??

    I seem to have a rather hissy set up but I can't figure out where it is coming from. I know for a fact that it is definitely not from my headphone and amp. It must be from the computer, ipod, foobar or dac. I'm guessing the dac might not be the source. If so, then is it my computer that is...

    Glass CD vs SACD in terms of SQ?

    I have a friend who advocates quantity (of CDs and iPod capacity) as opposed to my approach for sound quality. He was asking me if I would consider that new glass CD they just started selling in Japan. I replied that I'd rather use the money to fund a decent SACD player but we both couldn't...

    Head-fi economics

    Being both a business major and an active headfier, I often think of the economics involved in this forum. I've been active in this forum for quite a while now, but I realise that the total sum of the money I spent is considerably less than I have initially thought. Clearly, there are...
