    One of the largest audio shows in North America in Denver, CO. There is a Headphone show within the show called HeadSpace. I love this show as there are over 160 exhibit spaces (many manufactures have a hotel room set up with their products). This is a must go for me every year. Any head-fiers...

    How important is the look of your headphones?

    Do you guys use a turntable as a source? I mostly use my DAC and tidal. But sometimes I just love that pure analog sound using a Avid Ingenium. Let’s see your turntbales!

I am not really interested in the headphone amp portion as I have a Wells Audio Milo and a Pathos Aurium. I am looking...

    Laptop sound card- Do I need a new laptop? (really long....sorry)

    Guys, first off I am limited in knowledge and new to head-fi. I have dove in head first though and I bought my first item (a Audeze isine 20) in January. So that is how “fresh” I am. So forgive the question if it seems stupid. From lots of trading and trying stuff out, I decided that a home...

    forgive me if I am ignorant. I am a newbie! I just upgraded my equipment and I have an Ampsandsound SE84/upgraded Leeloo on its way to me. It has an 8 ohm jack with an approximate 3w power output. I know nothing about speakers as I’ve been learning as much as I can about headphones. My question...
