    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    Nice input. Thank you. Does yours have the built-in DAC? How is the DAC section of the amp? To my ears, I feel like Sabre DACs have a brighter sound.

    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    Hi guys.  Is the Neo 430ha really as good as the reviewers say it is?  I currently own the Oppo HA-1 and been listening to my LCD-3f and HD650 through it in the past.  I have owned the Schiit Ragnarok and Yggy stack but sold them to try the Ha-1.  Wanted a more streamlined all-in-one package.  I...

    Anyone using Arcam irDAC & what do you think of it?

    Hi guys I just wanted to add that I got an irdac which replaced my Emotiva Stealth dc-1 and I have to say there is a night and day difference.  I love the irdac.  It has a warmer sound which I prefer but doesn't loose any detail.  I have the irdac paired with a Schiit Ragnarok and a pair of...

    Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC

    Maybe not a nice match with my Bryston.  I will try without my Bryston and use the Emotiva as the preamp.  Thank you

    Emotiva Stealth DC-1 DAC

    Hi guys,   I recently purchased an Emotiva DC-1 and have it hooked up to my Bryston BHA-1 that I'm using as a preamp with two Bel Canto REF-1000m and a pair of KEF LS50 monitors.  What gain setting do you guys have it on?  Variable or fixed?  It seems at fixed, there is too much gain causing...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Thanks for the reply.  I honestly, have not been able to tell the differences in dacs.  But I have never done a true A/B test.  I have owned other dacs or built-in dacs like Oppo 105d, Burson Conductor, Schiit Gungnir, Schiit Bifrost, Grace Design M905 & M920.  I don't know if I could really...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    One thing I have to say is why do these super expensive dacs have hardly any features?  I really like the bluetooth feature on my current Oppo HA-1.  It comes in handy when my fiancé just wants to listen to her podcasts or iTunes via wireless.  She doesn't really care about audio quality as...

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    Hi guys I see a lot of praise for the new Yggdrasil.  Just wondering how it compares to the Auralic Vega and Berkeley Alpha Dac2 with USB?  I have not heard any of these.  I like the Yggdrasil price better of course.  But am I really get a lot more performance with the Vega or Alpha?  As far as...

    AURALiC Vega

    Hi guys, I'm still trying to decide among Auralic Vega, Berkeley Alpha Dac2 w/ Alpha USB, or Schiit Yggdrasil.  I obviously like the price of the Yggdrasil.  I'm looking in the used market for the Berkeley and Auralic.  Is there really a major differences among these dacs?  Which measures best...

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    I think you to let them burn in a little bit. When I first put mine on I was too disappointed and as I put some time into them, they started opening up and bass to me was great. Comparable to the bass on my sennheiser hd650. I noticed a big improvement on sound after about couple of hours of...

    JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the input.  Honestly, I feel IEM are more designed for the purpose of portability and functionality.  When I had my Shure SE846; I didn't listen to them hardly at home because in the end the full size headphones like my LCD-3F, HD800, T1 etc just sounded better and was more...

    JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread

    OK so I just Google it and found it on Amazon for 549. Is that a good deal? Also, are these sweat proof? I don't see any indication these are designed for working out but as long as long as these are durable and sweat proof than it should work. How do these sound? What headphones or in would...

    JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the reply. It's seems really difficult to find some really good sound pair of iem for working out. What is the ASG2? I know this is not the thread but any other recommendations that sounds great and will work for working out?

    JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread

    Hey guys I'm considering getting a pair of Roxanne's.  I own the Audeze LCD-3F and love the sound.  From what I'm hearing these share a similar sound signature as the LCD.  Anyways, it seems getting the custom is the best way to go.  However, I honestly would prefer the universal fit for reason...

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    Oh and I think that's why beats did so well. There headphones are more of a fashion statement. That and genius marketing made them the best selling headphone in the billions.

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    All good points. I wouldn't wear the lcd or hd800 in public either. They look nice to look at but when on, they look funny. The T1 looks more handsome. I know it's not a fashion show but I have a point where I have to draw the line. Even my home speakers. My wife would kill me if got speakers...

    Audeze LCD-3 Impressions Thread

    I would be all over a Stack Sr009. But I don't like the fact that it uses different type of amp topology and connection thus not allowing me to use my current amps and limits the number of available amps.

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

    Hi guys, I'm excited to hear the new new Z7!  I just ordered mine on Amazon and it said it should be shipping out some time early October.  I'm going to do an unboxing on YouTube when I get it to share with the world.  I don't how they will compare to the Sennheiser H800 when it looks like to...

    Beats Solo 2: Is the Head-Fi community willing to give these a fair chance?

    Hi guys, I went by the local Best Buy today and demoed the new Beat Solo HD and I have to say definitely an improvement over the older model.  Less bass than before.  But still didn't impress enough to want to purchase.  If you like bass but not bloated bass, I would highly recommend the Senn HD...

    The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Just wanted to say hi and let you all know that I just purchased a new pair of T1 and they are on there way. I'm excited. I will be pairing with Bryston BHA-1 for now until I re-terminate then I have more options like my Schit Gungnir. I used to own the sennheiser hd800 twice (lol) sold it...
