    Can an Apple inline control work with Android?

    Wait now I'm confused as to what you are looking for.  There are a LOT of IEMs out there now that have inline controls for volume, fast forward, rewind, and pause.  So are you looking for IEMs that have those controls or ........  For example, I just got a set of IEMs off of Groupon for $10 that...

    Need advice on upgrade

    Can I ask a dumb question - why the need for your setup to have NO amp.  There are some of the best sounding portable amps out on the market that are way smaller than the DAP you are considering.  Also, you can find many people here on head-fi that make custom cables and LODs to keep the...

    Suggestions or Ideas

    Another quick question I had.  My tv has an out put labeled "Digital Audio Out".  My Tivo has a spot labeled Digital Audio but does not say in or out and is not near any of the other in or out connectors.  Could the Tivo Digital Audio jack be used as in INPUT so I can hook either my Tv or...

    OK DIYers. Answer me this

    So in theory it should be possible but it isn't as someone would already have figured this out and done it. Thanks for the response.

    OK DIYers. Answer me this

    Is it possible to take an Apple Nano open it up and remove the guts and replace the guts with a rockboxes iRiver so the Nano then creates a digital ouptut line. MY assumption is that you should be able to disconnect the screen and scroll wheel and reattach them to the control cables of an iRiver...

    Best portable amp for JH13'S

    Shadow works for me. Crisp clean detailed and very very portable. The Tomahawk sounded a little more warm but not as detailed. The Shadow it is for me.

    I can't get enough listening time on my 13s. I would really love to hear the 16s. Maybe at CanJam in June. Plus, the wallet can't take another beating.

    Something 'big' coming from SanDisk

    A true Digital output player with color would be nice. Something to rival Apple but with the option of digital output not Apple's analog output.

    How long do you plan to keep your amps?

    I don't see this as an issue. Technology is ever evolving so everything becomes disposable at some point. If it makes you happy in the interim, then you are all set. Eventually things like the Predator, the Tomahawk and the Shadow will be old news and something smaller and better will come along...
