    E1DA DACs Discussion Thread (PDV2, 9038S, 9038D, 9038X, HiFiToy, HPToy)

    Hey there, when I plug my PDV2 into my Mac, immediately a window pops up saying that the device needs too much power and was disabled. I have no chance to make it run. Please find the infos to my Mac in the enclosed screenshot. Would be great if someone could help me make it run...

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    A lot of what people perceive being "typical tube sound" is owed to tansformers in the signal path (as such, just to achive exactly this, some amp companies put transformers even into a solid state signal path. check out the difference between JR Capri 1 and Capri 2). OTL tube amps do not have...

    XDuoo XD-05 Portable Dac/Amp Introduction - Impressions

      Well, I will receive a XD-05 soon... and this mod with the Burson SSO V5 was exactly what I had in mind. I was even considering to mill a hole into the top of the case and have the V5 sticking out... an Op Amp Glory Hole :-) Whereas I am not sure whether it really works, becaus from some of...

    AKG K702 Impressions.

    ...my impression after I did the bass mod some time ago: the 702 plays in a different league now! The all over sound signature remained, super clear, super precise, super crisp, but now with that little more in the bass region, which gives the music the substance it needs to sound more...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Just shortly after I ordered my X00 mahogany, the purpleheart was announced. I was a little angry, since there was a chance that I would like the purpleheart better. But then, later, I had the chance to compare both of them directly. Then I knew, that luckily I picked the right one for me. All...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Correct, an optical illusion. I myself needed to double check whether it really were the genuine standard pads, also because the picture gives the impression as if the pads were quite glossy, whereas the standard ones are matt. But that is only due to the flash I was using. I have the same...

    Reply to review by 'musikaladin' on item 'AUDINST HUD-DX1'

    Frankly, I find the price quite stiff compared to other offers on the market (ifi iDSD micro and others).

    Reply to review by 'musikaladin' on item 'Fostex TH-X00 Massdrop exclusive'

    ...in the beginning I found mine soundstage-wise also rather congested. But actually the soundstage is improving a lot after some very serious break-in. It will be on eye-level with other, if not excellent but still very good closed headphones. I am just now enjoying it... @Redcarmoose, careful...

    Audeze LCD-X

    ...I find Audeze's statement not showing a revision because they permanently imporve their products very questionable. I mean I could live with it if the improve the headband or something else that is visible from outside and as such recognizable. But changes inside, especially such significant...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    ...i was using the neutral nozzles since I own the 846. I found the treble a little too recessed but it wasn't urgent enough to change the nozzle. I also hesitated because I read several opinions around here pointing out that the white nozzles sound too bright and sometimes fatiguing. Well I...

    Audeze LCD-X

    My relationship to the LCD-X is quite ambivalent. Important to know, I bought a very early one from the very first batch. Long before you could actually buy it here in a shop. I bought it directly from Audeze, despite warnings, that Audeze previously had some issues with early serial production...
