    Nobsound NS-08E also know as Nobsound 6J9 hybrid tube amp

    Good find. Have you tried it with an efficient portable such as the px100-ii? Would the gain be too much?

    Sansa Fuze and Podcasts

    I have been using my Fuze for a couple of months now and am overall quite pleased with it. My only problem with it is that my podcast ID tags are a mess. Half of them end up under the 'unknown' tag. Is this something I can change easily or is this the fault of the podcaster not tagging them...

    Using a IBM t41 for movies and music.. both sound great through either my stereo or headphones .. Had a sony notebook before , which sounded terrible. It's hit and miss I suppose, with notebooks.

    Soundmagic pl-30 20.00 shipped

    Mine were delivered in 8 days from focal-price. First impressions were a little underwhelming . After a week of listening they've smoothened out a little and I can full enjoy them for what they are : AMAZING for what I paid. IN my opinion they are slightly better than ksc75 or px100...

    Did I Get Fake PL-30s?

    I too find it hard to discern between normal and bass-settings, They're quite neutral .. this is coming from a pair of ksc75s . They do sound good for 20 dollars, better than those horrible JVC fx66s, but they still have a little of that signature IEM harshness in the highs , not bad by all...

    Koss KSC75 worth it?

    Ksc75 are not exhausting at all . especially with a good source like a sony DAP. I am very sensitive to sibilance and had no problem going from older Px100s to ksc75 . I did have problems with jvc fx66 and Mylar X3 and even pk3 *which are not all that awesome at all. Dare I say, the ksc75...

    Anyone tried the Digital PClink on ebay?

    Hi, I'm looking for a cheap way of getting a good Spdif output to my receiver.... At the moment I own a audigy 2 , but I need something bit-perfect. My computer is about 3 meters from the receiver. The av710 is to expensive in europe and since I already have a nice USB cable for my Monica...

    best DAP for audio?

    It's more of a taste thing, and comfort as well. I prefer the sennheiser sound because it's very forgiving on mp3 sound . It's a warm.rounded sounding headphone that makes a lot of music sound nice. While the grado sounds thinner, but with more excitement. and a nice sparkly high. Good for...

    best DAP for audio?

    My best sounding player to date is the cowon CW-300... an oldie ( 2003) but still good 512mb space + AA 30hours battery. Got it for 10 dollars. Its soundstage is huge, and the bass is amazing. It sounds great with big cans too, akg k501 and MBquart qp55x ... It's better than- Rio carbon...

    Which Earbud?

    I'm really curious how this pk1 sounds I love the pk3's. they are in between the px100 and kramer modded ksc75 .

    Which Earbud?

    no y-cords yet for pk3... I just got them today and they are very impressive . better than mx500 for sure. I'm just warming to their sig. , I do notice they sound their best with a powerfull source (my sony portable radio ) , I think an amp improves them a lot.

    I can get some of these but the ad states that they are broken, they produce low volume sound . Are they worth the bother? I really like my small electrostatic computer speakers .... How would they compare to something like an AKG k500 or Sennheiser?

    HELP! Connecting a PVR/DVR to an external amp

    Any normal amp with RCA inputs will do ... If your television has RED/White rca output you could hook your television to the amp and get the sound of everything that comes trough your TV to the amp. If it does not have RCA outputs you could use a Scart adapter with a input/output switch :
