    Will this work?

    I have Liquid Spark amp and an older turntable. Can I use the RCA out of the TT into the amp and listen to an album on my headphones. I am asking instead of doing as I am still hobbling around on my leg and can't get to the wires on TT easily. Will it work?

    Best Amp for Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 (UE TF10)

    My thoughts, after using the Stepdance for a month with my UEs.  I will whole heartedly endorse it for use with TF10s.  Mine will be coming in the fall a little later in the fall.     B

    Review: Portable amp roundup! 56 portable amps reviewed and compared - FINAL update 12-20-10 added RSA SR-71B

    I was loaned the Stepdance for a month a while back, and mostly use IEMs.  I have a set of TF10s and SF5s, and used both.  My son has a pair of Shure 210s (or something like that).  The happiest day of my summer was when Skylab said I could keep the Stepdance for another week.  The saddest day...

    Is it worth getting an amp for my headphones?

    Quote: When I purchased my Gary amp PA 2v2 it came with a cable about 12in long to go from headphone out to amp.  But like others have said, you will want to purchase an LOD to bypass the built in amp.  This means that you are controlling the volume via the amp, and saving the battery life...

    help me: advice for my first headphone amplifier - max $ 250

    What about a 3move from Meier audio.  A sponsor of Headfi and really good to the forum.  I have a headsix and am waiting for news on the Stepdance.  If I did not have the Headsix I would be all over the 3move.  Bonus is the built in DAC, and switchable crossfeed.      ...

    HE-6 Loaner Program

    Not interested in reviewing the HE6 cans, but wondering if my amp would qualify as a speaker output?  It is a vintage (early 1980s) Nikko 220w amp.  Laugh if you must, but it works driving my speakers.     B

    I put in a few quotes, being a novice with equipment.  I don't know much from how to tell how much tighter something is.  But I can tell you what I liked.  Those wooden super comfy headphones at Skylab's table.  The Rudistor, the cable from Whiplash I tried out on my tf10s.  The 800s in  TTJV's...

    Anyone seen Porcupine Tree on the current tour?

    Set list for Montreal show.  WOW, what a show. Bare stage with just equipment on it, no smoke rising from floor.  Effects just done by lights (like Pulse).  I think the wider stage gave the band a fuller appearance, The little video going on behind sometimes filled the whole back wall with...

    Anyone seen Porcupine Tree on the current tour?

    I still think it is still the same tour. It was so good that my son and I are going to see them again in Montreal (two hour drive, so four hours total). The first time was in a semi bar setup, this time will be a concert hall. Let us know what you think about it Skylab. Up until we saw...

    Fubar III is Fubar

    My son took his PC apart to go to a net party, when he came home and reconnected it all sound from Fubar unit was not there. I was able to find out that the walwort is still working at 24v. I am not sure if under warranty but I would guess not. Does anyone have any idea what kind of repair needs...

    Wow, what can I say. Since I have been involved with I have scanned what cans/iems that folk wear. Well last week while riding home from the NAHBS (North American Handmade Bicycle Show) in Richmond Va on the train. I sat down beside the guy with Senn's on. He had some closed HD280's, so...
