    NEW - Campfire Comet and Atlas

    Has anyone heard the new Tin Audio t4? Its currently 89$ and uses a 10mm dynamic driver claiming to use some nano carbon technology (much like atlas). Supposed to sound punchy, engaging, and fairly colored. I just ordered a pair mostly for use at the gym.

    FiiO M11Pro | Dual AK4497 | THX AAA 78 Headpone Amp | 5.15" 18:9 720P | Exynos 7872 | 3G Ram+64G Rom |

    and your using the screen protector? someone complained about the m11p not coming with one pre-installed and fiio responded saying I cant see any sign there're a screen protector on, which is really impressive considering it's there. Is it just on the front or the back glass also? I ordered...

    I read they were having problems with very large capacity cards not working properly do due differences in how much power different cards draw cards draw. They said cutting down to one slot guarantees all 1tb cards will work. seams to me there should have been a solution that let them keep...

    Has any one who pre-ordered from Audio46 get an eta when they are shipping? I'm feeling pretty dumb having paid an extra 50$ vs amazon a week in advance with no information

    ZMFestivus II: October 5th, 2019

    Any sign we might be short on table space? I'm considering bringing my whole rig which would involve a Audio-gd Nos 11 next to a J2 power amp next to a spare laptop i hope i can borrow from my family, that's like 2-3 yards of table space plus class A power amp heat. IMO superbly driven He-6 is...

    right angle 4.4mm pentaconn connector

    Sorry if there's a thread like this already, couldn't find one via search. So I just ordered the new m11 pro and now I'm in the market for a 4.4mm to mmcx cable to connect my CA Atlas. I really want a lower profile angled connector and a cable that's not too bulky. As far as i can tell there...

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    Audio46 is a well established retailer right? I had never heard of them before now, do have a nice site but they seam to have dropped out of my google results. I'm about to (pre)order, hope they can ship ASAP so i can bring it to ZMFestifus next week:fingers_crossed:

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    So I'm on the fence between a few DAP's at the moment, does fiio app have a decent cross-feed function? I know i wont be able to you my favorite neutron player that keeps all the eq and cross-feed on a screen away from now playing. I've got a bunch of real high quality older recordings that...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    not a viable option IMO, It will play at lowish volumes but will really be lacking definition and presence, kind of deflated. If your planning your upgrade path you will need a better amp for he-6. The cheapest amp i properly liked was the ~750$ Cavalli liquid platinum. The liquid carbon was...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I spent several minutes with my Code-6 and Jude's TT M-scalar stack and ZMFestivus last month, did a very very good job. With out any time or means to compare I cant say how much of that was the extremely good DAC vs how well the amp section got the job done. I think its safe too it drove them...

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    I would defiantly buy double sided tape before those horrible things. they leak bass and are just the worst to put on.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I don't think that's a viable option. I had a chance to try many amps a few weeks ago and i would say schiit jorty and liquid carbon 'worked' but plenty of mid tier headphones would out preform the he-6 on these mid tier (but good value) stacks. I would say entry level for an he-6 is more like...

    ZMFestivus 2018: Chicago 2018 Impressions

    It defiantly did. one of my favorite listens of the day, but there were so many. Cpzzy's dave stack was just a tremendous addition to the event, please remind me the name of amp. That beast drove my modded he-6 extremely well, hardly any tube effect added compared to the other very nice tube...

    The Inaugural ZMFestivus 2018: Chicago 12/9/18

    I'm having trouble getting my super old laptop to work with the new Singxer drivers, so I'm probably going to forgo the SU-1 > Nos 11 and just bring my code-6.

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    Your going to be very happy, I think I undersold HeadAmp GS-X saying it was on par with nos11 (for powering he-6), it's extremely well regarded for he-6 and i would swap to it blindly given the option. WA-33 will probably do a fine job too and be an excellent contrast flavor wise.

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    are you referring to he he-1000se? On paper the 83db he-6se needs over 4 times the watts compared to 90db Hekv2 to reach the same volume, and i've seen user measurements putting he-6 (original) around 77 db per mw, which would be closer to 16 times the power required to reach same volume, vs hekv2.

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    I've read pretty much the entire amps that can drive he-6 thread, and an overwhelming majority of people you try a good power amp claim they hear tangible benefits. I wouldn't focus too much on the watt rating, large power supply capacitance and the ability to swing voltage fast (slew rate)...

    HE9 + R2R 7HE group buy

    Having thought about it a bit more the Direct Stream my also benefit from trickle down FPGA upgrades from the new PS audio flagship dac currently in development. Paul McGowan joked it might be 20k$, so they're throwing some fresh money at R&D. I've been planning to use my end game headphone...

    HE9 + R2R 7HE group buy

    I wouldn't buy a PS audio DAC for sound signature as its changed a few times over firmware updates. If i were to buy my system all over again I would probably go denafrips. never heard either though so don't count me. Every one who tries Audio-gd's high end stuff become members of the cult...

    only said that because zmf is known for extremely good build quality that hifiman needs and zmf is currently getting their own driver production up and running. didn't mean to take any stance on zmf's new drivers, which i understand are a very impressive debut offering. which is very impressive...

    As long as we're talking crazy how about a zmf / hifiman merger. Fang can design the drivers and Zach takes care of the rest. basic woods and good build quality for made in China flagship, USA made versions can focus on custom woods and Rolex level fit and finish.

    They threw in an extra without telling us! looks like the ear-pads are different, and because the original stale donuts were so bad any change is a 'significant upgrade'.
