    Looking for closed headphones at best buy for ipad direct connection

    Thanks gc336. You are SO right. Problem is we are traveling through the area (Corvalis & Eugene OR) and have this one opportunity to get our grandpa set up. Otherwise, would definitely be looking wider. But I looked as well and there was way too little in stock. Maybe I'll look for audio...

    Helping out an older fellow who just got an ipad and would like to play music without disturbing his family. We are passing by Best Buy and would like recommendations from their offerings - if they have anything that fits the bill at all! Your input would be most appreciated. Cans would need...

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    I looked back at eight pages and there was not one review of the CHANGE in those. Maybe they are back farther, but it seemed pretty far away.

    DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions

    Sorry that I did not notice the K1000 question until now. I have both the HD 800s and the K1K, and find that I more often listen to the K1K because the spatial dimension is so much more natural. It gets as close to sound in the room as I have heard, rather than sound in your head. I think they...

    I wonder how it compares to a 727ii amplifier? Any sense of that?

    Stax SRM-727 Voltage Input

    I am aware that there are two current versions of the 727, the 727ii (USA verson) and the 727a (Japanese version). I just purchased a 727a that was modified for 115v by Justin at Headamp (when the unit also received the feedback mod). My understanding is that the unit should now be suitable...

    New Audeze LCD3

    In my opinion, and that of Audeze, the difference between the classic and the faxor is minimal. I sent my classics in for conversion to faxor hoping for more transparency and extended highs, and had to call Audeze to confirm they had actually changed the drivers! I think folks on this forum are...

    New Audeze LCD3

    I just called Audeze and got the confirmation that they are replacing the classic drivers with new drivers that include the Fazors. NOT adding Fazors to the existing classic drivers. This is their current policy and how they treat all such upgrades, based on our phone conversation. Cost was $275.

    New Audeze LCD3

    Thanks. I already spent a half hour looking at the threads with no clear picture. Figured it would be kind and helpful with somebody who knows the answer could just answer.

    The Fiio X5 Thread

    I hesitate to say anything, in case my situation might change… But I have no problems with stuttering or the use of OTG. I format my cards with in the X5, and simply drag files over from my Mac mini and used a program to clean up the hidden files. I populated another card off at a friends PC in...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Hi guys. I'm seeking some advice. My amplifier is making crackling and static sounds. I read the manual, and will clean all the contacts for the tubes.

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    I just got a LD mkii v2 amplifier used with a number of tubes.  I had to re-mount the transformer, and I hope that the amp is working.  Will test it tomorrow.  One of the tubes is the EI 6HM5.  I just want to confirm that it is in fact suitable.  Can someone confirm?  Thanks, Peter

    Check out the thread about the Centrance upcoming product for Iphone 5 above and Ipod Touch 5 : Hi Fi SKYN         That could be what you are after.  P.

    Centrance upcoming product for Iphone 5 above and Ipod Touch 5 : Hi Fi SKYN

    This is tempting and I may go for it - just got an email from indigogo.  It's great that it adds battery life, provides good quality sound (even hi def), etc.  However, who has enough memory on their iphones to store DSD files?  I think this is most appropriate for streaming and the limited...

    Audio-GD Master 7 with HDMI I2S input (for Offramp)

    Hi Folks.  Have any of you used a Master 7 DAC with Kingwa's new input kit for the Offramp 5 (using HDMI I2S out)?  I've been in communication with Kingwa and this is what he says about it:   Master 7 customers asked us change the I2S input define to suite the OR5. Now we have the HDMI input...

    Can I wash my Sennheiser HD800 earpads?

    Fortunately, the situation resolved on its own and no washing was needed. When I first acquired the headphones, it turns out that the slight fragrance was likely from standard shampoo residuals, head and shoulders to be exact! Just letting them sit for a week, about all of that fragrance was...

    Can I wash my Sennheiser HD800 earpads?

    Here is the official word from Sennheiser:   "You cannot really "wash" the pads as soaps and solvents can break down the foam and other materials in the pad. All you can really do is wipe them down with a warm damp cloth and then let them air dry. Maybe you might even spray them with some...
