    Dock for iPhone to bypass internal dac

    I'm aware of the camera adapter but is there a dock that has this all in one neat package? Basically I want to use my iPhone as a source for centrance dacmini, so lightening to USB A to USB B into my dacmini. I found this mess (attached photo) on the internet for reference

    Identical sound signature to the ah-d1100 Denons?

    So my d1100s crapped out on me. They were horribly built plasticky headphones (cracked at cup joints and other areas), on top of that, the ear pads faded away and peeled off. My question is, is there a similar headphone out there with the same comfort (they were around the ear not on ear) and...

    Any opinions / reviews on the new McIntosh D100?

      agreed.  $2500 isn't cheap, but for McIntosh you'd figure they'd try to charge 5000+.  I love the look of their components but they're so overpriced for the most part that it's comical.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Yeah, did the glue looks like crap. Won't hold for long though. Ugh, bad design, great sound.

    Denon 1100 best bargin?

    Oh lord, barely had it past a year and it's cracking like crazy at the same spot on the plastic that holds the cups.   Ugh, now I wish I didn't buy them.  I haven't put them on in a long while.  Is there anything I can do?  Does Denon offer replacement parts?   this sucks

    K702's or Schiit Asgard first

    Quote:   Oh, I see.   Most of the time I consider true rock all the stuff that came out during the late 60s up till the late 70s.  Stuff after that is a bit rougher and different.     I guess what I'm trying to say is, although I love the bass and drums on my D2000s, I'd like to...

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    Quote:   I used to own the 225s.  I got tired of them after a while, same for the 125s.  I think the problem is I don't like on ear headphones.

    Do the Sennheiser 650s compliment the Denon D2000s well?

    I was looking for a Yin/Yang kind of comparison.  I use the Denons for my Punk/New Wave/80s stuff, but I was looking for something that pairs better with Rock and Vocals.   Any advice?   Anyone know where to score them cheap?   Thanks, in advance.

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    Quote:   They're pretty durable.  I've had them for 8 months now and no complaints, even after a few trips and more than a few commutes (I live in NYC, so they're very handy on the train)   Cables are NOT replaceable.  At least not easily.  But everything oozes quality with this set. ...

    Best Headphones for 500$ or less

    Quote:   I like the Denon 1100 a lot.  It may be a bit bassy but it still sounds great and feels great on your head, while being pretty good at blocking noise.  I have to say, they have to be one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned.  I know a lot of people here will...

    On ear are the least comfortable headphone you can buy.  I've sold every on ear I've ever purchased.

    Quote:   Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure you need a special cartridge/stylus to play 78s   good thing for you that that's only regulated to very old records   my paltry vinyl collection dates back to the 50s and there isn't a 78 to be found.

    Went back to that same junk shop I saw the Thorens 190 at and it was still there, so I decided to grab it this time.   Took it home, found an adapter and plugged it in   it spun!   So I have a cheap cartridge and phono amp on order, if this baby works, then I'll start giving it real...

    Garage sale Thorens 190 ... worth 50 bucks?

    He had no adapter for it so I have no idea if it works.   Looks good, missing a stylus.  Older version with the RCAs wired in.   Should I go back and roll the dice?   Price is not negotiable.   It wasn't his, selling it from random junk he picked up.

    CEntrance DACmini DAC/Amplifier Official Thread

    I thought it was only an issue with one of headphones but noticed it was present with everyone of them, though fainter on some.   I'd contact the account here for CEntrance about the problem.

    You might have a defective unit.   I was having static issues with my volume knob as well, so I sent it back to CEntrance and had it fixed.   No problems at all since then.
