    Apple Lightning Dongle

    This little dongle really pisses me off. I've spent way too much money in the past on amps and dacs only to find out that this little $9 marvel sounds at least AS good as anything else I've heard, and probably better. I wish I had found it sooner, but I guess I wouldn't appreciate just how...

    If a record is recorded by microphone from a tube guitar amp, then distributed digitally, why would I need a tube amp to playback "that warm tube sound"? Wouldn't it be "baked in"? Does this make the argument for using tube based amps moot?

    Grado e Series vs i Series Graphs

    Does anyone know if the e series has been measured for comparison against the prior i series?  I'm in the process of choosing between the RS1e, PS500e, and the GS1000e, and I can't audition any of them.  My only option is to buy them from amazon then return them.  This means a possible 4...
