    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    Anyone have experience with the Terminator II for gaming or movies? I primarily use my audio system for gaming and I recently became aware of the Denafrips latency issues. Only info I got so far is that the original Terminator has half the latency of the Ares, but still enough latency to...

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Is the "0 latency" confirmed for the Holo May/Spring3? If so that is a major positive and will make Holo my definite choice.

    Holo Audio Spring R2R DAC

    Damn, I had no idea about this latency issue. I primarily use my audio system for gaming and this really caught me off guard. Someone posted on the drop website that the terminator has half the delay compared to the ares, but still is an issue. Placed an order a few days ago for the Terminator...

    Musician Audio Pegasus R2R DAC

    Agree on Zeos. His reviews are also massively time consuming with off-topic comments that make it very difficult to get the info you need. Much prefer Passion for Sound, Soundnews and GoldenSound channels.

    Musician Audio Pegasus R2R DAC

    I would be cautions of sajunky's recommendation. I was not aware of Audio GD and immediately did some reading (I'm currently addicted to audio atm). Went through the R-7HE thread you can see sajunky very heavily favors all Audio GD products. In some situations it appears he hates on other...

    Musician Audio Pegasus R2R DAC

    I don't think the Aquarius would match up vs the Holo May KTE. $2900 vs $5600 dac. The dilemma I am having is the Spring 3 KTE or the Aquarius. I am led to believe the spring 3 KTE would outperform when using headphones, after watching the Soundnews review. All of these new DAC products are...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Thanks for the info. Makes sense. Something like this is what my custom cable would need. Now just to figure out if I should attempt the socket drop by resoldering, or attaching a new skinny 3.5mm pin to my cable like this one:

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Just want to make sure this issue is not the standard. Don't want to go down a return loop. Your he6se v2 does not have this recessed socket?

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Is there a DIY fix for this? Can't I resolder that side and lower it?

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Anyone else have this issue with a recessed 3.5mm socket on the earcups? Someone posted these photos showing this issue on another thread. It is on the left side which is the same as my set. It prevents me from using my custom cables on this.

    Denon AH-7200

    Wow now I realize this item was opened before, for a mod or maybe a repair? Was very lightly circling my hand around the ear pad to even see if they are removable, and the plastic ring on the R side very easily popped up slightly, with just a gently tug on the ear pad side. This is also the...

    Not sure if it is worth the time and effort to attempt a fix. Also think I might break something. Seller offered $50 refund for issue. I am also able to return for a refund if I want. I will search some youtube videos and see if any instructions available that would sway me towards a fix.

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    CEMA on ali are great for custom cables. Only one I could find willing to do A2DC connections on a quality cable. They can do a straight cable/no earhooks for sure.

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    Anyone able to compare these yet? Looking to pair with an Audio-Technica ATH-IEX1 iem, which I think are great but definitely too bright.

    Mid priced IEM cables thread.

    Anyone test Cema's newest copper cable? The "Super copper series 4-core thick OCC". I have a Audio-Technica ATH-IEX1 iem and I think they sound great, but definitely are just too bright. I am debating the 198 cema "7N Frozen Single Crystal Copper Special Tuning" as they are supposed to reduce...

    I realized the noise when I just picked them up and put it on my head. I heard it when using normally. You can see in the video when I am not shaking them and just placing them down and upwards around ~20 sec mark. Also when I am moving each cup slowly the right side seems to touch metal to...

    Yeah I tried to squeeze the hinges together a bit but did not do anything. I have never had headphones that were loose like this before, and I have a decent collection.

    Denon AH-7200

    Is it normal for the D-7200 to have loose hinges? Just bought a like new set and the hinges that connect to the cups seem very noisy. It gives a feeling of a cheap headphone which I did not expect. Otherwise they sound good. Here is a youtube link of issue.
