    The Incoherent Rambling Room

    AKA: The Splinter Thread   This thread is basically an offshoot to ljokerl's Shootout thread. Our... well, rambling was going too far off topic in some cases and possibly chasing people away from the thread. I don't want that - ljokerl has put WAY too much time and effort into that thread...

    Is the only thing keeping a sub amp from being full-range the preamp section?

    Is that where the Xover is? I have a couple of sub amps with fried preamp sections and was wondering if it would be worth tinkering around with these as full-range amps.

    Eskuché Control headphone impressions...

    Got my Eskimos today. Initial impressions...                 They are quite a bit smaller than they appeared to me in the photos. They are VERY reminiscent of the Nippon America CD-5500 from Mat Electronics (sold as Reference #CD-5000) in build with a metal...

    Could someone please point me to the thread with all the audiophile terms and expressions?

    I send out headphones to friends on another forum from time to time and the only thing I ask of them is to post up a review of them. Since most of them are new to audiophilia they sometimes have a hard time expressing their thoughts about sound. That thread was perfect for those people. Not sure...

    Best place in the US to buy Superlux HD668B?

    I wanted to compare them to my current budget champions (Maxell DHP ii) as they supposedly cost around the same - $30. Problem is very few retailers seem to carry these and the ones that do all seem to want well above $30.   Any place in the US still selling them for around $30?

    What are those budget multi-driver 3-way headphones again?

    I've seen them talked about quite a bit but can't remember the make or model number... Anyone know?

    ljokerl (or anyone) question(s)

    On your modded out KSC75's - what is the purpose of the "68 Ohm impedance adapter" and what does it do for the sound? Do you know how the resistance is run in this thing? Is it a straight inline resistor per positive or is it more like an L-pad with another resistor to ground? Also...

    And what I mean by hi-end is gold plated copper, silver plated copper, solid silver etc.

    ljokerl, could you give a few more words about the sound of the Coby CV-185?

    Especially compared to the JVC Flats, KSC75 and maybe even the JVC HA-RX700. You haven't reviewed these yet, correct? Also, the CV215's are the same phone just colored, right?

    Anyone here try the Coby CV720's?

    Their CV-185's seem to be getting a bit of buzz on the portable forum - just wondering if anyone has tried these full-sized Coby's, and if so, what do you think of them.

    Anyone here heard the RadioShack AUVIO CH102?

    "Retro Stereo Headphones" Did a search but came up with nothing. I went into a local RatShack and my girlfriend saw these and fell in love with them. "They're cute and you can change the color... blah, blah, blah!" I don't mind getting them for her but I don't want to spend 40...

    Is it worth it to modify/hotrod vintage cans?

    Specifically, I picked up a pair of Realistic Nova 44 quadraphonic headphones at a thrift shop and was thinking about replacing the drivers with more modern ones and wiring them for stereo. Is there any benefit to doing this besides just having fun tinkering? Here's some pics of inside the...

    Reccomendations for $40-$80 phones...

    I have reasonably acute hearing based on hearing tests. I just don't think audio quality is the most important aspect of music. I care more about the melody, beat, vocals, etc... of a song. So having the best fidelity is not the most important feature to me although I would like a pair that...
