    FS RSA Stealth (230v)

    SOLD   For sale is my RSA Stealth preamp and headphone amp. It is in perfect condition (see pictures). It is also a 230 volt amp and I am in the EU, so an EU sale is the most logical choice (but if you are elsewhere situated and interested you're welcome too of course).

    Marshall Headphones, an interesting new option.

    I don't know any more than is on this link, but given the reputation of Marshall I consider this something to take a good look at.

    In the thread about the V200 amp from Lake People there was a mention of the new V181, a balanced solid state headphone amplifier. I am very interested and take a look. To my surprise they present it with a 5 pin XLR headphone output So, I decide to e-mail them about it. I got a prompt...

    Archos 5 question

    I noticed that the Archos 5 has Linux as operating system. I wonder if it would recognise a DAC if it was plugged into it's USB port... Anybody own an Archos and tried it?

    Trafomatic Experience Head One

    It has been a long time since this amp was in the picture and I don't seem to be able to find the old thread any more so I made a new one. I promissed some people a more comprehensive review of the Trafomatic Experience Head One headphone amp a couple of months ago. It took a lot of effort...

    FS/FT: Denon D2000 ***SOLD***

    I bought these to compare against the KH-K1000. Done that. And I don't like them so much that I want to keep them. There is lots of info on these all over the forums, so I don't think I need to add to that here. If you have any questions you're welcome of course. I'm looking for $225 +...

    Kenwood KH-K1000

    A few months ago I came across a mention of this new Kenwood flagship on a Japanese site. It was acompanied by some frequency graphs that were very promising (at least I could read that...).

    Sleek SA6

    A couple of months ago (six months, a year?) I found on the web an interesting site of someone planning to make a pair of IEMs that could be tuned using different sizes of tubes in the housing. I followed it a while, but lost interest after I bought my PK1s (and nothing happened on the site)...

    Rpx-100 + K1000

    Just want to share something I recently found out. I have always been intrigued by the AKG K1000, but having to match them with a separate amp always kept me away from them. Last Sunday Blackmore was over and brought his K1000 with him (among other stuff) for me to try out. I had asked him...

    I Bought 3 mini to RCA cables from him. When he tested it before sending them off he noticed one was defective, so he sent me an e-mail and refunded me promptly for the defective cable. He is friendly, reliable and communicates well. I would certainly do business with him again.

    VERY easy 325i mod. (and maybe also for other Grados)

    Hi all. This is a very simple mod for your 325i. Reversible within 1 second flat. Total cost: about $2. I got the idea from a mod on my turntable. It has a heavy metal platter. The mod is that you put a heavy, tight elastic band around the rim to dampen vibrations in the metal. Well, I...

    Pinkie mod: warning

    I am a long time fan of my HD650/X-can v3 combo. I (still) think it does exceptionally well. But you know ..... I suddenly needed an Equinox cable. That was good. Expensive, but good... A bit better control in the bass department. A bit more forward in the midrange. A somewhat livelier...
