    Need Help: DAC, USB-SPDIF Converter, or something else to connect a computer to an old receiver?

    Thank you both for your continued commentary. I can confirm that the receiver will turn a 2.0 into a 2.1, as both the CD player and record turntable are connected through RCA, and output bass just fine. The thing is, I have a bit of an idea how to choose a DAC, as there are lots of reviews...

    Need Help: DAC, USB-SPDIF Converter, or something else to connect a computer to an old receiver?

    Hello everyone, I'm struggling with something way over my head here and could really use some help. My father and I are both fans of good audio quality, but we're not crazy audiophiles. My father's 2.1 sound system is worth, at the very most, 2500-3000 (Tower speakers, woofer, receiver, CD...

    Which is the better buy? The Sennheiser HD 6XX (HD 650) or the Fostex Th-X00?

    To be honest, I don't think that my current headphones are good enough that I'd be able to hear a difference, but I will check these videos out nonetheless. Thanks!

    Which is the better buy? The Sennheiser HD 6XX (HD 650) or the Fostex Th-X00?

    Hello everyone, My question is as it appears in the title. I have thoroughly reviewed both of the headphones being offered by Massdrop, the HD 6XX for 199.99, and the Fostex Th-X00 for 399.99, and the reviews for both are glowing. Actually, the reviews of both headphones are so good and use...

    V-MODA Shield Design Discussion

    I don't think that will work. As Val has stated, the laser etching machine can not do gradients or shades of grey. The metal plate either becomes Etched, or not etched, meaning Black or white.    So for example, if you have an orange plate, the lines that are black in your Vector file will...

    Hey all,   I'm so disappointed in myself for not having my design for the ear shields ready in time to order the VTF-100s. I think I was only a few days off too :l   Im just wondering, when I order the M-100s, what do I not get anymore? The faders, cork, and second pair of shields, I know I...

    V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc.

    I will admit that I'm a bit concerned as to the sound quality of these phones. Everyone seems to love the m-80s, but I can't tell if its the same kind of (excuse the term) fanboys who like a mix of looks/durability/sound, or if its true "audiophiles". As my father pointed out, it's always a bad...

    V-MODA Shield Design Discussion

    Quote: I am designing these for the VTF-100's though, the pre-released version of the M-100s, which are a different headphone than the LPs. I'm assuming that they're both going to be the same shape and size though, in terms of shield size.

    V-MODA Shield Design Discussion

    Hey all,    I'm designing myself some shields for my pre-ordered VTF-100s, and Im wondering if I should use the LP/LP2 template for their design, or if I should just make a generic 5 in by 5 inch design.    Does anyone know what size exactly would be best for me to create my design in?

    V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc.

    Yeah it does. I just liked how the D2000's sounded airy. From what I understand and have heard, V-moda is a more Bass-heavy company, and I'm feeling like it's going to sound a bit more compressed. Im wondering how airy and open Val can make it sound. Either way though I think I'm going to go...

    Hey eveyone,   I've been following this thread and the progress of the M-100's since I heard of them a few months ago, and boy, I am excited. I feel like these will be exactly what I'm looking for.    However, I do have a few questions to ask. Like I said i've tried to keep up-to-date...

    I've gone and tested several recommended headphones, and I am appalled. Looking for headphones that LAST, while delivering sound for under 300.

    OP here,   So I made my way down to Long and McQuade today and tested out the only two headphones that they had that were also well reviewed on the forums here.   I tried the Audio Technica M50's, and while the build quality was decent, I found the sound to seem very compressed, as...

    Quote: I tried a few times, and it seems that the hissing disappears when i attach them directly to the sound card. I've also noticed that I can hear whenever the computer does something. Like i can actually HEAR the sound of the mouse wheel scrolling. And I know it's not the real-life...
