    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Flashing firmware back to 1.81 seems to have allowed me to turn it on again. We'll see.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    My Realiser A16 is getting stuck at the start up screen a lot, I have to keep turning it on and off repeatedly via the remote. It seems to be getting worse and worse. I've heard of others having this issue. Do I have the defective hardware or is this a software issue?

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Seeing as how they survived as a company with the Realiser A8, I'm not worried about Smyth Research disappearing as a company. They never had any real competition for the A8, let alone the A16. Granted it's a very niche market, but Smyth Research completely owns it now. It's unfortunate that...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Web browser interface would be the most ideal. Being able to control A16 from Smartphone would be much better than using the remote.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Having a personalized PRIR in a top notch studio is a night and day difference. My current favorite is a local studio in Los Angeles, California (where I live). AIX Records. I have a 5.1 and 7.1 PRIR I recorded there a long time ago. They're my favorite profiles. I really hope they upgrade...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I pledged to the Realiser A16 campaign immediately when I saw it. I finally received my Kickstarter A16 (2U Version) this week. The UI and remote are horrific even by 1990's standards. Studying, and I mean thoroughly reading the PDF manual is a requirement. Fortunately Lorr Kramer at Smyth...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Update to a very old post, but I am now using Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. It pretty much checks all the boxes for me and has completely replaced all my other wireless earphones. The most killer feature for me is it's Transparent Hearing feature. It makes them perfect for office use...

    Sale on Made in USA Headphone Cases

    Does the Voce fit in this case? Probably won't fit the Voce due to it's attached cables, but just checking. Probably best to use a Nanuk / Pelican case for transport anyways.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I still have my OG HE-6. I don't miss the old headband style at all.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I might have to ressurrect my old Velodyne HGS-10 Sub. Maybe a mix of my Crowson actuators and the Velodyne sub might give the best of both worlds without upsetting family members sleeping in an adjacent room.

    I see mine as well, fourth from the left, one shelf down from the top. :p

    Planar headphones for gaming.

    I game with my HiFiMan HE1000. I use an Antlion Modmic with it routed through an Astro MixAmp for chat volume control, an old JVC/Victor SU-DH1 Dolby Headphone processor for surround sound (will switch to Smyth Research A16 when it eventually ships to me), and output the audio to my HeadAmp GSX...

    LG V30

    Yep, the V30 is the perfect size for me.

    HiFiMan Susvara Review: The HE6 is Dead, Long Live the Susvara

    I have not yet, but I'll definitely give it a go when I get a chance in the future. Probably won't be using a speaker amp for a long time, but I can certainly get some quality time comparing HE1000se to the Susvara with pinnacle level balanced output headphone amplifiers.

    HiFiMan Susvara

    LOL, we're talking about the Susvara like it's to the inefficiency level of ye old AKG K1000's.

    which electrostat has the fullest sound

    Stax 009s has pretty decent bass compared to it's predecessor. Moreso than the Voce. But the Voce had better imaging and flatter/tighter bass. Overall, the Stax 009s was a little more "exciting" to listen to when compared to the more neutral sounding Voce. But based on my memory, I did...

    LG V30

    Still not tempted to upgrade to a new phone from my V30+. Maybe a V50+ with an even better DAC?

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    As much as I like my Jaybird X2's and Freedom 2's, I only use them for my workouts. I haven't found a pair of Wireless IEM's that will keep me from using my JH Audio Layla's. Now if only JH Audio or someone would make a wireless Dongle adapter or something for Custom IEM's.

    HiFiMan Susvara Review: The HE6 is Dead, Long Live the Susvara

    Overall, the HE1000 v2 is more fun because of bigger soundstage and more bass, but the Susvara's better refinement cannot be denied. And yeah, the last 5-10% in Audiophile land is very very very expensive. :p

    HiFiMan Susvara Review: The HE6 is Dead, Long Live the Susvara

    I'm beginning to suspect that one as well. I had a conversation with a friend that has the Susvara and GSX mk2 as well, and he feels that the Susvara can use more power as well, from other more powerful headphone amps he tried.

    HiFiMan Susvara Review: The HE6 is Dead, Long Live the Susvara

    HiFiMan Susvara Review You may have heard that The HiFiMan Susvara is the best dynamic headphone that HiFiMan has ever made. You also probably heard that it's the most expensive dynamic Headphone HiFiMan has ever made. Both of these things are true. The question then to ask, is the...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    You'd be surprised at how mint condition people can keep their headphones. But for sure, something like the Sony R10's are too organic and basically decay on their own over time. And I really tire of the argument of touting speakers as an alternative to high end headphones. Some of us live...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    The Susvara is significantly more aggressive than the HE1000. Very punchy in comparison, almost too edgy at first (particularly treble), but after breaking/burning them in, it smoothed out. Mid bass not nearly as strong as the HE1000, though, but the Susvara goes lower and the bass sounds a...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    I'm kind of struggling to find a good way to describe the imaging and soundstage differences between the Susvara and Utopias as well. It's not that the Utopias have better imaging in general, it's just that it's tighter grouped because of the smaller perceived soundstage. Best analogy I can...
