    The Official Grado 325i Owners Club.

    Quote: How do you like them compared to the 701s ? I was thinking about getting a pair of 701s too, but it looks like you switched over to the 325i instead. Well I got a pair of 501 and 701s at the same time and I found although the 701 were a little more detailed than the 501s, they...

    Do you wear your Grados in public places, bus, subway, etc.

    I wear my SR60s out because they (a) sound good and (b) keep my ears warm in the -20 Kingston weather. I try to keep the volume to a level that won't attract attention. Although I have seen one or two other grado wearers from time to time, although never when I have mine on .

    Admit to it: you wear headphones in public that you shouldn't!

    Normally just my Etymotic ER-6s which don't notice much at all, although the way they stick straight out has resulted in me getting one or two looks. Once I had them in, with the cord wrapped around my ears and dark specs on and a military police car drove by me and slowed down. When I...

    Which Amp for Shuffle & Etymotic ER6s

    Hello, I was wondering which pocket amps are well matched for an ipod shuffle and my Etymotics. I suppose another question I should ask is, as the shuffle already has a quite good output is an amp really required or show an improvement. I am not looking to spend too much, any thoughts on...

    Which gen ipod has best SQ?

    Following on from what blessingx was saying, a recent issue of Hi-Fi + said that for mobile listening the first generation Ipods had the better sound of most portable mp3 sources. They recommended a 1G Ipod and Etymotics for listening on the go. I have never heard one so I can't say...

    New 24/192 dac from china-nice!

    The DY2000 is very mysterious, it by all accounts is an Analog Devices Op-amp, but when I contacted them about it, they did not recognise the model. I am going to send them more info at some point to see if they can yet still identify this op-amp.

    Zhalou 1.3 Dac Headphone Upgrade. (56k Beware)

    I have just installed the headphone upgrade for my Zhalou 1.3 Dac. The installation was relatively trouble free. I used the very useful installation photos on the Zhalou The new headphone section not only improves the headphone output, it also allows you to by-pass the dac using...

    I seem to remember quite a favourable mini-review in a British Hi-fi magazine. It may have even been what hi-fi. Have you seen this:

    New 24/192 dac from china-nice!

    Quote: not to be mean, but maybe a $75 Go-Vibe would serve better than trying to make the headphone out of the Zhao servicable? I mean, it's a DAC - you can thread it to an amp! You could well be correct, but I will give the upgrade a go. I maybe was mistaking under the impression...

    Av710 No sound

    I hope you can find a solution to your problem. I too only seemed to be getting digital output. But I have nothing to test the output with. But I grew too inpatient I am afraid and got another card.

    Av710 No sound

    Thanks for the suggestions, but tried those and still no joy. I think I may have a faulty card, as I tried it in another computer and I have the exact same issues. Cheers, James

    Av710 No sound

    Hello I have just installed a new av710. I first of all used the drivers on the cd and the card installed fine. But no sound is heard from any of the sockets. I then tried the via drivers as suggested by a guide of the forums and I get an error message and the envy panel program will not...
