    FiiO’s Upgraded Bluetooth Amplifier BTR1K: Qualcomm QCC 3005 BT chip, BT 5.0 and aptX /aptX LL/AAC supported, RGB light, NFC pairing, Type C and USB DAC

    Fiio, "May not currently" can be interpreted in several different ways. Are you saying that the BTR3 may not work as a USB dac like the ES100? If that is what you meant, what are the chances that it may work as a USB DAC like the ES100? Is that even one of the target goals of the BTR3, or not...

    FiiO’s Upgraded Bluetooth Amplifier BTR1K: Qualcomm QCC 3005 BT chip, BT 5.0 and aptX /aptX LL/AAC supported, RGB light, NFC pairing, Type C and USB DAC

    Aptx LL benefits games the most. Some people are lucky and don't have any audio latency issues with their device and their games. But a lot of people do. Video is a hit or miss with everyone. But for those that have not tried aptx, don't knock it until you experience it first hand. I will...

    Which Sennheiser 5-series? (too many now)

    Sorry, I don't mean to start another "recommendation" thread, but the Sennheiser line is getting too big now. Have own the Sennheiser 595 for 10 years now. Though their good for home use connected to my stereo, they are not good for portable use without an amp. 120 imp doesn't help. So...

    Xears Thread (formerly TD III)

    Are the Xears TD-III v2 still being sold?  I went to xears.com, but I can't find them.  If they are not being made anymore, what replaced them?

    IEM comparable to Sennheiser MX-880 earbuds

    Quote:   I'm sorry, I know you're trying to help, but I would like to get advise from people who have actually heard the MX880/980 and a similar IEM.  Not just what other people have said or what rating a model may have.  Thank you though.

    IEM comparable to Sennheiser MX-880 earbuds

    Quote:   Thank you.  However, the MX580 that you are using as your reference sound more like the MX680.  I still own those.  Those two have a completely different sound compared to the MX880. I use to think my MX680 were nice for earbuds, but it is just sad how good the MX880/980 sound...

    Introducing Nuforce BT-860 High-End Bluetooth Headsets

    I forgot to post my review here, so I'm cutting and pasting most of what I wrote elsewhere.  Just a quick review. I had the BT-860 for about two weeks. Fortunately, I received these from Nuforce a few days before going on a business trip. So I had the opportunity to use these on the road, in...

    Need Recommendation - Touchscreen portable media player that can sort by Genre/Album Artist/Album

    It looks very nice, but the need for HD is useless for my use.  I will be using this device in a car with an 8" and 12" screen.  The 12" screen has a high resolution, but that's only through VGA connections.  I just setup up the car using RCA connections.  So DVD quality at most.   Quote:

    Need Recommendation - Touchscreen portable media player that can sort by Genre/Album Artist/Album

    @rroseperry MP3.  I already have my entire CD collection ripped to entirely to FLAC.  Then I made a copy of that collection in MP3 to save in on a portable harddrive.  So my collection is readily available in MP3 format, properly tagged and all.   @kitkat12012 I would be using analog RCA...

    Amp without volume knob

    Leny, Thanks. lol You didn't really need to explain all that. I know how it works, I just didn't know if I was misunderstanding you and you meant it the other way around (meaning the output from the processor being too high instead of the amp). Thank you though. You've been very helpful.

    Amp without volume knob

    Thanks. So there really ISN'T a dedicated headphone only amp, huh. And I couldn't really find any headphone amp with a remote either. ...SOL I guess.

    Short Sennheiser PX-100 II review

    Never heard the HD238. They have them here, but it didn't look as gym-friendly as the PX-100's, so I didn't consider them an option.

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Nuforce uDAC USB DAC AMP with line out and S/PDIF out

    I've had this for about three weeks now. So far, I love it. I tried out a portable headphone amp (iBasso D2 Boa) before with my Audio Technica A900's, but didn't feel it did much for performance. This little Nuforce uDac is awesome though! The fidelity from the uDac compared 3 different laptop...

    Laptop to Udac vs. $500 CD player question...

    I agree with dana789. There is a lot you can do with a netbook and uDac. Dedicated players always seem to have an incredible soundstage compared to lossless audio files, but they both sound great. Now, if you game or watch movies, I would say go for the uDac just because you get much more for...

    Wow! The Final Audio Design FI-DC1601SB (also known as "Don't go to Yodobashi" lol)

    Fender, it would have been worse if you went to Osaka. I thought the Yodobashi in Tokyo was big. I just visited Osaka last month, and the one there was 13 floors of electronics! The headphone section was sooooooo sweet! There were several booths with siding to block out noise. Each booth had...

    ATH-A900 too loose. Are there any mods for that?

    Just as the title states. I love my A900s, but they are way too loose. The A500s I previously had were not THAT loose. I basically can't move my head without it starting to slide off. I went to the store and tried on all A500, A700, and A900. I found that the A500 and A700 both have the same...

    Having problem with EAC....please help

    Hmmm... that's interesting. A few things you could try. 1) Clean your drives with a lens cleaner (the CD cleaners) 2) Run the wizard on EAC so it can detect everything your drive can do regarding ripping 3) On EAC Options, check "Delete leading and trailing silent blocks" And lastly, if...
