    The Members Lounge thank you to Tyll!

    You're the reason many of us got into this hobby, or even realized the hobby existed. I don't want to be limited in what I say to being friendly to the guys that took your baby, abused it, and kicked you out. You're the reason headfi isn't about being alone in a room listening to music...

    iphone hands free for car

    I'm looking for something to use my iphone in my car, using my speakers for output and also hands free use. I'm looking at the Motorokr T505, but would prefer something to use line out instead of fm to get it to the stereo. I'd also prefer a full duplex setup. Anything out there that works well...

    Baltimore/DC MiniMeet Impressions Oct 6, 2007

    Small but good. Almost everyone bailed on it, so it was a small group. PeterP's 6SN7 transformer output ac heater amp is a wonder to behold. Great sound, and he was using somewhat inexpensive 6SN7GTBs. Colin's Millet Max sounds really good, as well. The remarkable story is still the pico...

    Benefits of a Meat based diet

    The main advantages of a meat based diet is you don't eat a lot of refined carbs, you get your nutrients pre-processed for you, and you get to be predator, instead of prey. I mean, come on, would you rather be the bunny or the eagle? Plus, bacon tastes better than rice. My cholesterol is...

    Review: K701 vs RS-1 vs HHF-1

    I'm not really a wordy reviewer, but it boils down to maker's signature sounds, really. The K701s are very nice, good bass, good detail, good space, very hi fi. The RS-1s have better energy, and that amazing midrange that nothing else has. The HHF1s are somewhere in between, with grado energy...

    SACD vs Computer Source Revelation

    Let me start by saying that I'm still going to stick primarily to using my laptop as a source. Having 2/3 of my cd collection available on random is a wonderful thing. However, I brought my Pioneer DV-563A SACD/DVD-A player into work to try with my new MPX3 tube amp and PS1s. I compared the...

    OPA604AP in SuperMacro V1

    I've now tried the AD8610, OPA627, and OPA604 in my supermacro V1 with my beyer DT770s. I have to say, for my listening (jazz, rock, electronica, rap), I've been most impressed with the 604s...I sacrifice the finer details, but the punch and speed are amazing. It may not be the best choice for...
