    Tube amp or Solid State for Grado 325i?

    I've not heard 1 amp better than the RA-1 with the sr325i personally. Synergy is just obvious with that choice. I have not heard the gilmore lite yet though, so keep that one in mind

    Extremely n00bish question about the Raptor/sources

    u need interconnects, thats all. digital connection is between the source and dac. you connect the digital out of your soundcrd to the dac via toslink or coaxial. for dac to amp, or dvd player to amp, interconnects are all thats needed.

    Singlepower MPX3 vs Emmeline II The Raptor

    Could someone do a short comparison please? I'm looking to buy either amps, and as they both cost about the same I am not sure which amp would be more suitable for my setup (look in signature). It would be something like: Audiophile USB coaxial out-->Blue Dragon Digital coaxial...

    Suggestion for <$1000 DAC???

    They may sound better to your ears because you dont like analytical sources, but in terms of sound quality the DAC-1 is above the other DACs in its price range, its been discussed and reviewed more than once.

    Suggestion for <$1000 DAC???

    The best DAC I've heard under 1000USD was the DAC-1, and I believe it is not my opinion only. Check into it and try to audition

    Is an amp worth it, I listen at low levels

    I'd say try a tube amp, if you dont think its worth the money forget about amps.

    Ever question your headphone preferences after hearing good loudspeakers?

    Its a very interesting story. I personally built my setup on the bright side and am everyday amazed at how much i enjoy my speaker rig. Slowly but surely, I'll start upgrading power amps and preamps and wont worry about headphones anymore :P

    What Headphone is the Worst for the Price?

    The worse price/performance combo I heard was the RS-1s. They're outrageously high priced imho. I'm sure the effect is worse with PS-1s though.

    Spikes should have come with your speakers (they did with mine) so its normal Dynaudio replaces them for free Personally I found the soundof the speakers when aligning them in a parallel way to be much worse than when theyre pointed towards me, on account that i am 8-10m away from then and...

    M-Audio Audiophile USB SP/Dif output problem

    I don't know if anyone's encountered the problem before, but I am trying to use the coaxial output on my Audiophile USB, and listening out the DAC-1's headphone out, and no sound... I tried using the toshiba dvd player as source instead of the audiophile usb with exactly the same cables n...

    Put the spikes on your speakers, move them so that the front is facing the chair, it has to be somewhat like an isoceles triangle where the chair is the top. Oh, and you might wanna get 2 little wood tables for the monoblocks. If possible, the most carpet/curtains you can have the better on the...

    EQing MY MS-1s

    I tried EQing using presets. It resulted in a big change of sound, fuller if you wish, but the distortion and statics were not worth the petty coloration caused by EQing. I'd much rather buy gear which wouldn't need to be EQed to sound good
