    Phonak Audéo PFE232 Review   I’ve had the PFE232 for at least a year now and I was planning on doing a review quite a long while ago, but things got in the way… Anyhow, I’ve decided that I should make one as the Audéo brand has literally erupted since the original PFE112 debuted. I’m not...

    Better sound with more hours?

    EF2A problems. Need suggestions!

    Okay, the HifiMan EF2A has no physical problems. The only problem is that I just bought a Marrantz CD5003 CD player and the EF2As volume knob is TOO sensitive and there is a channel imbalance... So... Even though the volume knob has, lets say, 10 cm of rotational roll and because the Marrantz's...
