    I can't find a 'Version 2' anywhere on HifiMan's website... can you tell me the difference between the Arya and Arya V2?

    I totally agree... I could more easily search the old system... quicker in all respects! I guess they like BIG splashes... Fancy is better to them. BUT, NOT to me!!

    A summary of recently recommended new arrivals, and March sales at SHENZHENAUDIO!

    No balanced in and out, and headphone SE in the rear, this is not a winner, IMHO!

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    Before going to the LPS-36, I found the Telefunken E88CC to be my favorite. Now, using the LPS-36, I find the Gold Lion Genalex E88CC/6922 to be my favorite. Hey, let me tell you one more thrilling thing flying the A4 Skyhawk, besides trapping on a carrier deck and being shot off... it was...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    I have now used the LPS-36 Linear Power Supply with the LP Headphone Amp for 100 hours. Disclaimer: I am not trying to get anyone to buy the LPS-36, rather I am just posting my opinion of what it does for the LP according to my stock ears. I have no idea if the LP will last another 100...

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    For what Keith aka @ksorota is charging for the caps mod... $150 including shipped back... anybody would be really missing out! Keith takes a good amp and makes it a really good... or, in my opinion, a great amp! When you get it back, then you need to get a good set of tubes.

    Monoprice Monolith Liquid Platinum - By Alex Cavalli

    This caps mod by Keith makes a good Liquid Platinum amp an outstanding amp... one that just draws me into all my FLAC/AIFF files stored on an external SSD connected to a 2018 Apple Mac mini 3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 with the Audirvana music app. It's hard to take my Aryas off my head... it...

My LP has just had the good mod put in by Head-Fier ksorota Keith Sorota and is on the way back to me... Friday scheduled...

    Topping D90

    How can you see what firmware you have on the D90? And, how can you install latest firmware? I've looked thru and thru the manual and can't find anything about firmware. I am using a Mac mini.

    Topping D90

    Have any of you pro-audiophiles compared the D90 to the Pure Audio Lotus DAC5? I have the Lotus and I like it a lot. Once I found the right filter setting for it, it really sounds great coupled with the THX AAA 789. I have the Liquid Platinum Amp coming... I want to see how well tube rolling...

    ifI iCan Pro - Impressions & Discussion

    That's very unusual ideed... I never had a problem like that. I wonder if something is inside the amp. But, regardless... get in touch with ifi and tell them your problem. Warranty should cover it. Also, tell or show your dealer the Pro iCan.

    ifI iCan Pro - Impressions & Discussion

    It is a system of components that reproduces sound... not just a source or USB cable or DAC or interconnects or amp or headphone cable or headphones. You can swap out any one of the components and you will get a different sound in your ears... some changes might be very subtle, while others...
