    do you turn down from the amp or the computer? why?

    I was wondering where you guys (i wonder if the guys i used to talk to are still here after all this time) turned the volume down from. I for example, have a chain as follows: laptop - Odac - O2 - headphones. I turn the amp up to 1 Oclock, the laptop at around 50%, and i use foobar as the main...

      ive never actually recabled a headphone, but lets think about it.. the cable terminates with a stereophonic jack, which means it would have 2 wires inside, left, right and ground.so i imagine the other ends, those that fit in the earcups, would be left+ground and right+ground. i dont imagine...

      you know what? that actually makes batter sense (about the baffles), infact come to think of it, the baffle is what separates the front end of the driver, the end that "sends" the sound to the listener, and the back end of the driver that emits roughly the same signal in an opposite phase...

    im not disputing what you said. i have never heard a d5k or a th-x00 so i cant say for myself.   but keep in mind that the driver isnt the only thing changing the sound. cups, pads, depth of cups, damping materials, etc. all make a difference. if you compare the d5k and the d2k, youll see...

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    if thats what john seaber says, then yea, id go get another adapter... hes the guy that makes these things after all.. be sure to take the old one with you so you get the same size plug. any ac-ac adapter outputting 14-20V will do (as written on the chassis). mine is 1A but if memory serves...

    correct me if im wrong, but the "Lawton damping" consists of damping both the cups, and the ,urm, bits around the driver (on the magnet i think). which would give the set a nice controlled and tight sound (or something like that).   im looking for a half measure, that would perhaps include...

    f.lux software - check this out

    thats quite the coincidence - i just installed this thing last night (before reading this thread). while i doubt very much it will help me with my sleep disorders - its definitely easier on the eyes! i even found some app to do the same on my phone - so far so good

    Review: JDS Labs O2 (Black edition) + O2/ODAC discussion

    i imagine youd need to solder the batter thingy out, and solder a cable or something to "connect the dots" as it were. im sure youll find all you need on the jds labs website. and if you email them theyll help you out for sure - they were very nice when i emailed them a while back..

    so ive had my D2Ks for a good long while, with alpha dog pads and deeper wooden cups from Lohb (which i installed sometime beginning of may i think). these are my "recreational" set that give a club-like sound, i listen to electronical music mostly, anyway - the D2K do their job really really...

    What these Frequency charts means?. break it down slowly plz.

      look at a speaker, the round thing that vibrates when you play music is what id call an "element" (it has other names). the material that vibrates is called a membrane. "how many times the membrane vibrates per second" = frequency. "how far the membrane goes forward and backward" =...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    is there a point? i dont know, what are you trying to achieve? assuming the X2s are "easy to drive" (which i wouldnt know btw) then you wouldnt necessarily NEED the combo if thats what your getting at. what point are you talking about?

    need (proper) spectrum analyzer for foobar please

    one that shows the frequency as well as level. my search yielded one analyzer that didnt work at all (couldnt see it in the preferences) and one "musical analyzer" which was very pretty, but showed notes - as opposed to frequencies, and that too was only up to c9 (~8 KHz aparently)... does...

    can i connect an acoustic guitar to a reciever via fiio e11?

    Very random question - i know. I hope this is the right forum for this... But my flatmate has an acoustic guitar (with a line out), i have a fiio e11 and theres a very old, very crappy stereo system in the livingroom - connectors and cables are no issue. What are the chances of killing one of...
