    Why not to accept "gifts" on paypal when selling items on paypal

    Just a fair warning to all I got some funds frozen from paypal because I accepted a payment marked as a "gift" from a head-fier for something I sold and those funds will not be released for 180 days ymmv but for me it is not worth the risk.

    SS amp for hd800's/jh-13's

    My edition 8

    Ultrasone is unbelievable...

    Long story made short Ultrasone was suppose to send me a new set of ed8's which ultimately they did (although they screwed up the shipping but that is besides the point).

    hd-800 vs ed8 vs ps-1000

    Well I would like a top end full size can to add to my rig but I am having trouble making a decision. I have pretty much ruled out the hd-800 because on my current gear I cannot really even attempt to listen to them properly until I get some more home equipment. Now it is down to a ps-1000 or a...

    I just got my rx and the power supply on there has a relatively large size plug but the amp only has a small hole as far as I can tell? Is there something missing here?

    I am really looking for a good portable dac in the price range of $250-$350. I really am basing my purchase on sq as the priority with everything else taking a secondary importance. From my understanding the d10 uses a independent battery the pico slim uses the computer for it's power and the...
