    Musical Extremes

    I've been doing a lot of thinking about the music I listen to, and it got me thinking about musical tastes in general. Lots of people on this forum have an extremely varied and wide range of music they listen to. Thus my question:   If you had to pick just two songs, what are your musical...

    Help me find a DAP ~$300

    So I purchased a Fiio x5ii from amazon and received it 7 days ago, and already it has broken on me. I don't blame Fiio, as these things happen sometimes, but I now have the chance to really take another look at all of the DAPs in the price range. I have a few requirements:   1) Speedy and...

    Balanced armature vs dual balanced armature

    So, not sure if this is a question for the sound science subforum, but what is the difference between dual balanced armature drivers and individual balanced armature drivers? Are dual balanced armature drivers the same as two, single balanced armature drivers, or is there a distinct difference?

    Vinyl vs CD

    So while searching in an antique mall I came across several old records. Looking through them I saw not much of interest, until I came across a compilation of Christmas songs, good ones, y records for $3. I thought it was a good deal, there were many, many songs I loved on there, so I got it...

    Any way to get specs?

    So I've scoured the Internet and even asked both Alienware and creative, but it seems no-one knows the specs for the Sound Blaster Recon 3di. Dell doesn't know it, Creative said it depended on the laptop manufacturers, and there aren't enough Alienware owners who care to find out. Is there any...

    Aiaiai modular question

    So I've been looking to get a pair of headphones, and I figured I'd look into modular headphones. The concept sounds amazing, and I feel like it would be an awesome way to try different sound signatures without having a pile of headphones, but something seemed amiss when I put the headphones...

    Decided on the fidelio

    So I was going to get the sennheiser game zero for my gaming laptop, but I don't think they would be very good for music, and at the moment I don't think I want to buy a headphone just for gaming.

    Monster turbines vs RHA ma750

    I was set on the rha, I really was, but man the monster turbines are a good price. How do they compare? I mostly listen to metal and like a v-shape in my headphones so keep that in mind. Also I have a pair of beats studio wireless 2.0 so that is my only comparison. I'm looking for a similar...

    I have a 2005 Ford F-150 and the radio officially died (rip 2005-2016) and I need to replace it. Not doing a full setup because I don't have $2000 to drop on one.

    Trying to get into hi-fi

    So I own a pair of beats studio wireless headphones, and all I hear on the Internet is how much they suck. Well I still like them, but the internet is always right so I'm looking for a full size headphone replacement. $200 is the most I'll spend and I don't want to need an external amp. I've...
