    Is there going to be a 4th Generation (4G) model of the Headstage/Headphonia Arrow Amp coming soon? If not, when do you suppose Rob will update the Arrow?   I know I shouldn't be asking this but has the shipping changed at all? Thanks, A1811

    FLAC Compression Level.

    What Compression level do you FLAC users use for your music? From 0 to 8, where do you keep your default compression level? Does it make a difference in audio quality and/or memory? Thank You, A1811.

    How does this sound?

    I know every Audiophile praises the Bowers and Wilkins audio systems in the new Jaguar lineup but how do you think they compare to this? The Bang and Olufsen system in the Audi Q7 shared with the old A8. Put it in 1080p and just listen. (Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.)  ...

    Conversion Concerns. (HELP)

    Hi. I appreciate the replies on my previous thread, "Bit Rate Converter," but I just wanted to know one more thing. If I download music (MP3s) at a bit rate of 320kbps from a site that doesn't guarantee it's lossless but convert it with a "lossy to lossless audio format converter" will the...

    Short Audiophile Music Lisc.

    Hello. I thought it would be a good idea for you Audiophiles to make a small list of your favorite music. This would be for anyone who is new to the serious music world and it would help them understand how much better our choices of music are compared to the average listener. There are two...

    What do you use?

    Okay, I'll keep this simple.   I use my computer as my primary music source right now. I plan on buying an S:flow2 in late December.  For those who own a portable music device or especially an S:flow2, what program do you use to sync your music in a 320 kbps, lossless format into your...

    Looking for Audiophile headphones (over ear)

    Hi. For the past few month I've been debating whether I should buy a pair of full size Sennheser's excellent HD650's of Shure's SE535. I like, or rather love, everything about these headphones except for a couple of things. The SE535s are great and would be a dream come true but I have been...

    Hi everybody. I am the type of person who enjoys buying my music and then downloading it to my computer but I have one concern about this. I fear that the location or source where the music was downloaded from can cause disappointing sound quality if not from the right site. For example, if I...

    What's so bad about noise cancelling headphones?

    Seriously, what is it that so many Audiophiles dislike about properly priced ($300 - $500) noise cancelling headphones?  I know it's the sound quality but how bad are they to deserve all the negative complaints? Can a brilliant yet well designed pair of NC's like Denon's AH-NC800 be any good...
