    Jambo DAC

    I bought the Jambo DAC kit over a year ago and planned to build it. But, then I moved and the project got sidetracked. To make a long story short, I don't have time to build this and I don't see it changing in the foreseeable future. So, rather than see this go to waste, this post is an interest...

    Recabled AKG-K240 Sextett MP Giveaway

    Bought this about a week ago, but the sound is not my style. Rather than reselling, I've decided to give it away. It has new pads and elastics and is recabled with Canare starquad cable.
