    Whisky (or Whiskey) Fi

    Well, if you insist.    Just opened the bottle (of Caol Ila Moch) and am enjoying a dram right now.     I don't want to draw any definitive conclusions yet as, in my experience, the first pour isn't always indicative of the rest of the bottle. But so far, I quite like this.

    ??? Sorry, can't sign off on this.  I guess I am not part of the "general consensus".

    Whisky (or Whiskey) Fi

    I have an unopened bottle waiting for me...will probably break the seal this weekend.  Sounds like a pretty good chance I am going to like it.

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    I wonder if there is some variance.  I have no issues with the spiral dots (using the large). They fit perfectly and have never once come off in my ears...and they sound pretty darn great.

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    As you may remember from a few pages back, my K3003i's have developed an issue that I am trying to get repaired. I am covered under a SquareTrade warranty and they have been great.  They have given me every indication that they will honor the warranty, so no worries there.  I do have to provide...

    It's not.  Both sides hardened on my pair before I had it replaced.

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    Ok..the unthinkable has happened...and I don't even know how it is possible.   I have had my K3003i's for about 11 months now.  They are absolutely the best earphones I have ever heard. A couple of days ago, I started getting an occasional light popping noise while listening to Spotify.  I...

    There is a new revision?

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    I know.  The IE800 does the same kind of thing, when just a plain, simple case would do the job so much better. Guess they need to justify the price somehow.     edit:  just to be clear, I kid, because I love.

    That is what I saw reported early in this thread.  But I have not had that issue on my unit (purchased 7/12)

      I can't comment on that , but no doubt the phonak tips and resistance really improve the sound quality of the W4R to my ears.

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

       I was responding to huggs2, who didn't seem to be using an app that did auto-switching.   I actually use BitPerfect and Fidelia, which also change sample rates. Interested in Audirvana because of the new UI, but I have been using Spotify more and more and haven't been able to justify the...

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    Generally speaking, you want to set the Audio Midi settings on your Mac to match the resolution of your source files (typically 44,100 unless you have Hi Rez files). Otherwise, you are using your mac to upsample before sending to the dac.  That said, no harm in doing whatever sounds best to you...

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    I should add: In the meantime, I am really enjoying the Explorer2 with just plain ol' Spotify.   For some reason, the IE800, in particular, has never sounded better. EXTREMELY holographic, big soundstage.   Having trouble getting work done right now because it is too distractingly great...

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    I would not be very happy if I didn't qualify for this. I mean....it's just a trial.  But I am going to be patient and assume that I will be able to take advantage of the offer when Meridian provides more details.   I just double-checked my box to make sure there wasn't any info or a code or...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

    I suspect the lack of comments about the bass may be unintentionally revealing.  Doesn't seem like the bass will be a strong point.

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    I purchased both, with the intention of keeping only one.  However, I have kept both for about a year now. That should tell you something (It should tell you... I'm broke ).   That being said, if I could pick only one, it would definitely be the K3003.  I prefer it's treble presentation and...

      Me either.   I find the treble just perfect on the reference, but I can't imagine having more.  That said, given the price tag, I probably should at least try out all the features!

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

      If I had to keep just one, it would be the K3003 (although if Sennheiser fixed the non-sound related issues, it might persuade me other otherwise).   But, like you, I am choosing to keep BOTH
