    Effect Audio - AKA Balance Adapter

    What is with the audiophile obsession with using metal blocks to block emi/rf???? As an electrical engineer, I can assure you that you can go ahead and wrap your electronics in tinfoil and it would be just as good if you're trying to make some sort of Faraday cage.

    Sharing my friend's poor experience with Woo Audio's customer service

    I suspect a lack of self biasing or improper grounding between amp and case. But I will wait time see if they answer my previous post or if there’s something else up. There’s only that much hands off debugging to do

    Sharing my friend's poor experience with Woo Audio's customer service

    good CS for a broken product isn’t a great way to go either. Anyways I’m just interested from an engineering perspective. No stake in the CS problem.

    Sharing my friend's poor experience with Woo Audio's customer service

    Now that the CS side of this incident is over, I’m curious as to what actually the technical issue here is. Assuming moon audio cable isn’t broken, I’m confused by why this 5th connection is producing such a problem: 1) where is the ground reference - the case or the ground of the line in...

    Lotoo PAW S1 - Designed for HIFI on the go with Lotoo PAW quality and the first USB DAC-AMP with dual 3.5mm & 4.4mm output

    The long and short of the interference issue is as follows: Poor internal shielding. Putting it so close to the phone (maybe next to the antenna) results in this. Circuitry is not fully balanced. In theory interference picked up should cancel in a fully diff circuit, but if we use a...

    Campfire Audio New IEM release

    You bet. The "indeed" is the biggest quantifier. After having done the rounds with all the ToTLs that I'm interested in, I'm curious to see how this will fare.

    It doesn't. Transformers step voltage up and down and for current the inverse is true.

    Astell&Kern KANN CUBE

    All devices have output impedance. Just ask an electrical engineer (me). That said it seems this will have very high OI so if you plug in some low impedance earphones you're going to suffer from massive power loss due to the impedance division.

    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    Inability to design a crossover network with an acceptable impedance should be viewed as a failure of design not as a “we need more power” problem .

    Effect Audio cables thread

    I mean if my iem started oxidizing I think there’d be reason to panic too. More has been done about less on this forum. Not entirely sure why we’re looking past this but damn I guess it must be because it sound good (to quote one of my favorite manufacturers).

    Sennheiser HD820

    Okay I'll deliver. To preface, this is based on my impressions over the course of about an hour ishk? Maybe it'll change if I have a long-term use/loan of this against my hd800 on my home rig, but until then, this is how I view the 820. HD820 is pretty good for a closed headphone. However, to...

    Sony MDR-Z7M2 Headphone Thread

    @pietcux Interesting, perhaps I stand corrected. What I'm referencing is the geometry seen on the box. When I was at the Z7 press conference, it was never advertised as such. Perhaps after much use, the two earpads arrive at the same final product :p
