    Best amp to go with the Sennheiser HD800 - time to revisit this question

    Cavalli Liquid Gold

    But at the same time, the company should also maintain a healthy product release cycle, which should not be too short. Anyway, as runeight has already explained what's gonna happen, there's no argue here.

    Cavalli Liquid Gold

    Then it seems to me they are doing experiments constantly, and treat their customers like laboratory rats. I would feel a little bit upset if I had bought an LAu...

    You mean LAu only has one batch, and then there will be no more LAu, just LAu MKII?

    MSB Analog DAC? (Review p3)

    I read that OR6 (cannot remember where) will be XMOS based, and a total redesign from the OR5. So the next version of Overdrive will be XMOS based also?

    MSB Analog DAC? (Review p3)

    I saw the dac comparison chart on their site, seems the dac module is 25bit in the Analog which is close to (or equal to?) the dac modules in the Signature IV+, and is better(?) than the Platinum IV+. Does it mean, other than SE vs. balanced, the Analog can beat the Platinum IV+?

    MSB Analog DAC? (Review p3)

    The volume control ($995) cannot be added later, so this will add up to $8,000. Expensive, yes, but ever so tempting...

    Eddie Current 2A3 - New updated version, new look with polished top

    I read somewhere purrin said that: The downside of the EC 2A3 with something like the HD800 is that a little bit more tube rolling and/or HD800 modding may be necessary (methicks the stock HD800 is too bright and dry.) Do you feel the HD800 "bright and dry" on EC 2A3?

    Quote: Isn't the HPA5000 optimized for low impedance phones (30~50ohm)? I haven't heard it, but their owner's manual said so.

    Audio-gd Digital Interface

    Quote: Wow, you have the Master-7. Can you describe the sound of it? How does it compare with other DAC, e.g., Ref7.1? Great to know USB-32 is better than AP1, that's a really BIG statement.

    Audio-Gd Master 7 - Discrete Fully Balanced DAC (PCM1704)

    Also another new finding for me (maybe already well known for other experienced head-fiers): according to Kingwa, the PCM1704U-K dac chip support 192KHz sample rate at 8x over-sampling, which is higher than the official specification (official data sheet here:
