    hd25-1 impressions thread

    I am amazed at how musical and involving the hd25 is - no-one would suggest it is technically the best but to actually listen to music and feel the music it is a great portable (and sometimes) desktop headphone. I was listening to my hd25 alu (custom cans mods) with the mojo from my laptop and...

    cheap cd player as transport

    I bought a s/h marantz cd5400 as transport and it is considerably better then my old lg dvd player via coax (or optical) - more depth/clarity/musicality. I do not know why this althought the cd5400 mechanism is reported to be excellent. Interestingly i compared the cd5400 to my pc (free...

    can anyone hear the difference between a cd transport and old dvd player (coax)?

    In answer to my own question, i bought a s/h marantz cd5400 as a transport and am very surprised by the difference between this and my old lg dvd as a transport. The cd5400 is night and day better using the same dac and heaphones. The sound has more clarity/depth and the voices are sublime in...

    coax or optical from cd player

    hi i am experimenting with the digital feed from my old dvd player which i am using as a cd transport. I find the optical sounds softer more rounded and possibly more analogue compared with the coax feed which sounds slightly brighter, harder and more digital. I wonder if this is common...

    cheap cd player as transport

    i noticed my dvd player outputs audio and presumably the digital coax feed at 48 not 44.1 - is this an issue or the coax at 44.1 and the setting for 48 audio is purely for the analogue output through the dac which shouldn't come into play with coax out? very confusing! d

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    My experience is that i needed both the smaller pads and 3.5 (single-ended) silver cable to turn these from bass monsters where the bass was way too much for me into really beautiful listening headphones that are euphonic. It is all subjective though.
