    Planing to order the SMSL M6, any alternatives?

    So, today i'm going to buy a new Amp/(DAC). I need an Amp fo rmy HD600's. Something to "hold me over" until christmas when either the Jot or the Hugo will be the options. After much research the SMSL M6 looks like a great temporary solution. I only really need an amp. My Cheapish audiointerface...

    Bandcamp WAV vs FLAC

    I just started purchasing some Albums on Bandcamp. I downloaded FLAC and WAV for testing. WAV comes out to (foobar) 1400kbps, Flac "only" 1000kbps. I'm not really sure if there is a difference there since flac is supposed to be lossless. The main question is, since WAV doesn't support tagging...

    Is there a Windows Application for Output Device Switching?

    "Portable" Home Player solution?

    Before diving head over first into diying some raspberry contraption, i thought i'd ask the knowledgeable people here if such thing already exists. I'd like some kind of portable player for home use only. It won't go out of house, and will only be used to play music in varying spots at home. I...

    Is "Balanced" a feature to look for sub 300$?

    Next month will be DAC/Amp time for me (recommendations welcome ^^). Looking at my options raised the question whether Balanced Out is something i should look at in my Pricerange? Basically i have HD600's, DT770 and 990. I'm debating modding the Beyers for Balanced. The HD600's would need a new...

    How to decide between bad recording and bad Gear?

    Hey everyone, i'm not 100% if i'm in the correct section of the forum, none the less, here goes. Yesterday i listened to some of my newer albums. I've got a flac version (16/44) of Ed Sheerans Divide. Upon listening to "Dive", i noticed some really odd digital distortion from the first chorus...

    Whats the best/cheapest way to build a high quality music Back catalog?

    After listening to 320 mp3's and spotify exclusively for 2 or 3 years, the arrival of my HD600 got me back into better quality audio. I tried tidal. The quality is good, but the price is rather high and offline music is sometimes more convenient. Especially since Tidal's Desktop client is sub...

    Recommendation for a cheap workout headphone

    Since my Biron BT died on me due to sweat, i need something new. I tried all the Anker offerings, and while they are decent, they just don't stay in my ears very well. Have the xiaomi pistons with Foam ear tips. They are ok, but the cable is to short. So, now i'm using the "tuned by AKG" earbuds...

    Is my focusrite scarlet 2i2 sufficient as a DAC?

    The easy part first: It's Headphone out is not great (mildly said). It's way to quiet and noisy. I'll be upgrading to a Magni 2 soon. The more important question: Is the DAC good enough? Will the Modi provide a audible upgrade in sound quality? The Interface is staying anyways, as i need it for...

    Need some advice on HD600 vs ...

    Ok, i've been off for quite some time. 2 years back i got myself the DT880's and have been happy ever since. Now, after listening to the HD600 in a store, i'm hooked again. They are just so smooth and easy to listen to in comparison. So, i'm looking into a new pair next month. A few options are...
