    WTS: Headstage Arrow 5TX

    The amp is brand new, never been used. I ordered a year ago and I just received it. Unfortunately I have moved on from portable audio and have little use for it. It is the the normal bass boost model. If you have ever been interested and don't want to wait a very extended time this is your...

    Sennheiser HD650 - Updated

    Due to unfortunate circumstances I am forced to sell my audio gear that I purchased in January. This ad is to sell my Sennheiser hd650s. They are in mint condition. No physical defects and sound amazing, I did replace the 1/4 inch to 1/8th in adapter (as shown in the pictures) with a much...

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    Quick and final update. Well I stopped using my cIEMs and also didn't use the tube amp/hd650s at work. When I started using the tube amp and 650s again the sound was so, so, so much better.   I have to assume I was so conditioned by the cIEMs and Headstage arrow that I expected everything to...

    Headphone Amp Advice Needed (Optical & iPad)

    I am looking for an amp/dac to run my HD650s when I am away form my main system. Portable would be cool but if not thats fine. The main qualifications are that it:   1- Handle my 650s 2- Have optical input (I will be running data from my airport express) 3- My iPad (3rd Gen) needs to be...

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    The Bottlehead Crack looks pretty cool but as I stated before, my abilities do not include anything that requires soldering.. or gardening or peaceful coexistence with my in-laws.   I would like to ask a question born in complete ignorance. The MKIII has preamp outputs. I saw solid state amp...

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    Thanks for the input guys. Dubstep Girl, when I say aggressive I might be using the term incorrectly. Classical and Jazz sound great. I was listening to a Bach cello piece on friday that took my breath away but with rock music mostly I hear is guitar and vocals. Bass guitar and drums sound like...

    j123my, that looks cool but I am certain that I would cause myself grievous bodily harm trying to put it together.

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    I just realized this is a pointless thread. I am sorry. I 99% certain the problem isn't the HD650s so I am going to order a Schiit Magni & Modi just for comparison. It's only a couple hundred bucks so its a cheap test. I have spent more money on cables than that.

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    Kramer, the macbook air, unlike the macbook pro, does not have optical out. The only way for me to get that is if I use an airport express which I did try but the wireless in my office leaves much to be desired. The airport kept dropping signal which is really annoying. Because of this I bought...

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    Quote:   Sorry, I am not sure what you mean by that. If you are asking what I normally use away from work, I use an iPod Classic feeding a Headstage Arrow amp into custom IEMs. I also have an algorhythm-solo I sometimes through in to the mix. All my music is ripped into apple lossless...

    Tube Amp - Lack Of Bass.. Suggestions?

    Hi all. I was informed at work that the entire floor was sick of hearing my music and that I had to kill it (damn the touchy engineers hating Bach followed by the Beastie Boys). So being the optimist that I am I figured it was a perfect time to spend money again. I picked up a pair of Sennheiser...

    Portable External Hard Drive - Pausing During Playback

    Yes, I stopped using audirvana for couple of days. I also replaced the cable all to no improvement. I guess a new drive is next.

    USB Cables - Good Quality & Apparence?

    Quote: So I have three cables total that I used to connect my USB 3.0 hard drive to my MAC. Using two of them the hard drive shows up as USB 3 and with one of them USB 2 and that is an issue with my macbook? Really? Or am I misreading your statement? Occam's razor points to the one...

    USB Cables - Good Quality & Apparence?

    Interesting thing. I just purchased two USB 3 cables for my portable hard drive since mine was all twisted up and a second because I needed a longer length at work. Same brand. With the short cable the drive showed up as a USB 2 device and with the long one as a USB 3. Now granted, these are...

    Portable External Hard Drive - Pausing During Playback

    Before I get too carried away I thought I would try a new USB cable. I am using the one the drive came with and I twist the thing up everyday. Its coming 2 day from Amazon (I love Amazon Prime.. free two day shipping is the greatest thing) so I will update after it gets here.

    Portable External Hard Drive - Pausing During Playback

    My Mac is a mid 2012 so its the newest generation.    Jake120, thanks for the input. I am creating some mp3 files to test with and I think the buffer is the issue and thanks for trying to save me money which leads to:   As to thunderbolt drives.. Oh man.. if I could afford one I would do...

    Portable External Hard Drive - Pausing During Playback

    The files are in ALAC format and run anywhere from 20 to 50MB (or more) each. The Macbook has two USB ports and I have tried them both, Macs dont have the same power management options that Windows has.. actually there are probably a lot things that are accessible via the command line but I am...

    Portable External Hard Drive - Pausing During Playback

    I am using a WD USB 3 "My Passport" attached to my mac as a music source. During play back using Audirvarna & iTunes I am experiencing 5 second pauses. It sorta seems like a buffer got hosed. It doesn't happen to any particular track nor time span and if I transfer music to the internal SSD it...

    USB Cables - Good Quality & Apparence?

    I am looking for two USB cables and I am having a really hard time with Google apparently. I am looking for a USB A to B cable to go between my Macbook and DAC. I want a quality cable and (this is probably vain, but..) one that looks good. Sleeving would be great. All I can seem to find are...

    DAC Shopping - LD DAC_I?

    Thanks guys. I went ahead with the amp purchase and emailed ga-audio about the 15.32. Is the price bump up to the 11.32 worth it?
