    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    Just have a question, I've been using the xDSD as a dedicated DAC (line-out to speaker amp) on my desktop setup. A lot of times, I leave it charging and forget to turn off the xDSD over night. So it's practically turned on and charging 24/7. Will it damage the DAC or amp of the unit in anyway? I...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    Just wanted to share this pic I took of my S8F. Been using them back and forth with my S-EM9. For the price, the S8F is a really great value. There is a ton of detail in these things and the tuning is pretty well done. However, they still can't compete with kilobuck TOTL IEMs.

    iFi audio xDSD- The Official Thread

    Hi guys, so I got a xDSD a couple of week and I am loving it so far. It's amazing for portable use like when I go to a Cafe to do some work or when I traveling around on the subway. Recently got a Fearless S8f and ran into noise floor issues so I had to use IEMatch. Can anyone with the same...

    FEARLESS Audio IEM's Discussion/Impressions

    So I finally received my S8 from black Friday sales after approx. 2 weeks. Originally ordered the S8P but got the S8F instead, oh well, don't really mind it. Anyway, back to the IEMs. First thing I noticed is that they are really sensitive. I can hear a noticeable hiss on my Dragonfly Red and my...

    EarSonics' two flagships: the universal S-EM9, and new custom EM10.

    Why must they limit the gold edition to only asia, they look so good!

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    I have no doubt that the Massdrop Plus IEMs sounds good but with the comparison of it being like the etys or UERM with added sub-bass, how does the overall bass impact, texture, and mid-bass compare to something like the earsonics SM64?

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Happened to mine too. When I left mine alone for 2 to 3 months, it worked again for a couple hours but then it happened again. The pulse gets stuck in a frozen state as I cant change any settings for the time it was outputting sound. So you are pretty much crap out of luck when it comes to USB...

    Audeze Deckard - class A amp, USB DAC

    How does the DAC of the Deckard compare to other dacs/amp combos at the 400-600 range? Specifically, I was looking into the Grace M900, Schiit Jotunheim, and the Burson SL9018 but the Deckard has me wanting to press the buy button more than any other. My Geek Pulse X crapped out and my DragonFly...

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Dam, my home audio setup is all connected through my desktop though my setup is just simple DAC/AMPs and I am what people would call a "casual" audiophile (I dont care for lossless formats and I stream a lot of music). Also my Geek Pulse X crapped out again. I don't wanna switch to android...

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    Gonna post this here for if anyone is experiencing the same problem as me and my deduction and solution to the problem. Hopefully LH Labs also revamp their support system cause it makes it seem like they are abandoning their current line of products and their customers if they can't get any form...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    I've had a lot of experience with Westones. I had my Westone 3 for 2 years and then went and got my Westone 4Rs that I'm still using today (4 years!) . If the wXX series are any similar, then what I've learned is that westones will sound amazing when paired with a good amp. Without amping, the...

    Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review / Preview

    From my experience with the Etymotic ER4P (I find them thin and too trebley), these seem like they are totally different in sound signature.

    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    no the problem is corrected when i unplug devices from my front panel usb ports (USB webcam, External HDDs, etc. etc.). I usually only have my webcam plugged into my front panel.  As I am currently out of town, I will try your solution when I get back and give an update. I still can't...

    HD 800 not cutting it - need something fun, cheap and cheerful

    I would highly suggest the HE-400 for EDM music. I'm using it now with my Geek Out 720 and I'm an avid EDM fan. Another headphone I would recommend is the DT770 Pros. Both work REALLY well with EDM.
