    New CEntrance DACportable dac-amp

    What are your thoughts on the power output compared to the m8? I emailed Michael and he gave me a vague answer that said "power should not be a problem since it's the same amp as the m8". But power does matter. Or is it so close that it's a non issue?

    New CEntrance DACportable dac-amp

    Do you notice a difference in the power output with the skyn compared to the M8?  Trying to figure out if I can sell my m8 for the dacportable since it is smaller.  I only use the dt990(250) and the he400 from hifiman.

    So did you completely remove the lips from the front case or just make them not as deep?  Also did you just fold those clips in on the back case?

    Yeah that's what I was thinking.  There are 3 on the sides and 2 on the top and bottom correct?  Maybe flatten 2 on each side and one on the top and bottom.

    I managed to find someone at work that would trade their 7th gen 160 for my 6th gen 160.  I also managed to butcher the hell out of case opening it up.  I ordered a new one but dread the fact that I may need to open it up again in the future.  Is there something I can do to this new case that...

    Thanks again.  One last question.  The center button, is that attached to any part of the clickwheel?  If the mechanism on the button itself is broken what needs to be replaced?  I see the link above has a replacement cover so I am just making sure.

    Thanks.  Will that headphone/hold switch assembly work in the 5.5g?

    What do you mean by the Mid frame?  I just bought bought a 5.5g 80gb with a broken clickwheel and headphone jack.  I want to restore it to look as much as the classic as possible.  Can you give a list of things from a site like http://www.idemigods.com/?  Can the back case be replaced too?  ...

    How does this work? If they don't reach the goal do the contributors still get a unit?

    Yeah that price is ridiculous. I ordered the iflash from tarkan. Going the 256gb sd card route. $140 total so not too bad.

    Thanks.  Does that 240gb PATA drive require any adapters?  Which model is it?  If I don’t go this route I am going to get the Iflash from tarkan for a 256gb SDXC.

    Unfortunately I don't think rockbox is an option.  My primary use for this ipod is in my car which has a usb input.  The car needs to recognize it as an ipod.

    Thanks for the info.  Is there a CE-ATA drive available above 160gb?

    Weird.  It can see only above 128gb on the stock drive only?

    I have a 6th gen 160gb(fat case).  Based on my search it seems I can't use a higher capacity ssd unless I rockbox because of the 128gb limit on the logic board.  Can anyone confirm if I have any other options for a capacity upgrade with without rockbox?

    I'm curious to know this too. I am happy this occurs because I like to eq quite a bit. The vamp verza does the same thing.

    The dt990's are a tad bright on my stock tubes. Can anyone recommend something a litter darker(cheap)?

    I just said screw it and exchanged the modi for the bifrost. Don't want to deal with the USB issues. Plus it just didn't look right sitting on the corner of the lyr :)

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Yep. I hated how thick and stiff they were. I don't hear a difference in sound quality though as some reviews state. Sounds the same as the black cable.

    **Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    I have been loving my new 400's.  First time I heard an ortho and was completely blown away.  The cord is a pain but luckily I was able to pick up a new he500 cable and velour pads on ebay for $54.

    I tested the dt880/250, dt990/250 and the he-400. On some tracks I really had to push it almost to max to get satisfactory results with high gain turned on. I am not sure how a 600 ohm can would handle. The mad dogs handled well but not enough bass for my tastes.

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Yeah apparently the USB ports are of low quality(on a $2500 gaming laptop). I've read tips to try and use a powered USB hub to eliminate the noise. If that doesn't work ill just return the modi for a bifrost and use the optical out assuming that doesn't have noise in it too.

    Power manager? For some reason I was getting major clipping before I lowered the pre amp and windows volume.
