    Balanced XLR Conversion HOWTO Grado GS1000

    Well, if they can be balanced by re-terminating the stock cable, my next question is would you be interested in doing the conversion, for a fee of course?

    Hi Mr. Les... Does the Grado SR80e have enough wires to convert to balanced by re-terminating the stock cable?

    anyone can give some advice for DAC/AMP for HD 650

    I was just thinking the same thing.  PM me if you want to make a deal on the Headroom Microstack I have listed for sale.  I think it would be a great match for those cans.   Quote:

    Anyone have experience with Ion Audio USB Turntable?

    I have one. Still in the box though. I plan to fire it up within the next few weeks to rip some vinyl. The Ion also has phono outs so it can be used with a preamp/line level inputs too.

    Emu 1212m sounds ATROCIOUS unamped through grados

    How do gaming sound cards measure up to dedicated DACs?

    I think an e-mu 1212m can be had for $150.00 (or less). You'd be hard pressed to fing a $150.00 USB DAC to rival it, especially if you plan on recording in the future. You could run a gaming card and the 1212m in the same PC.

    is there a differance between different asio drivers?

    asio4all is for cards that DO NOT have a native asio driver. You do not want to use it in place of native drivers.

    Get the foobar vst bridge and then you can use vst EQ plugins with foobar.

    Just discovered Shorten Files (.shn) - Thoughts?

    I find a lot of shorten files and I usually decode them back to wav and then encode to flac for archiving and playback on my H140.

    Where's the bass?

    Get the foobar VST bridge: foo_dsp_vst and try some of the many free VST EQ's. I like classic eq for general boosts and cuts and AIXcoustic Creations - Electri-Q (posihfopit edition) for more precise EQ.

    what is the best soundcard money can buy

    You could also do a USB DAC instead of an internal soundcard but then you would need an amplification source to connect to the USB DAC.

    what is the best soundcard money can buy

    I think offerings from RME would be the top of the soundcard food chain followed by the E-MU 1616M.

    You can easily remove it with the RockBox Utility.

    h120 ?

    You can aslo dual boot... installing RockBox does not wipe out your original firmware.

    looking for MP3 player with a decent line-out?

    I didn't/hadn't compare(d) it to a PC as transport when I made that statement. You're quoting me out of context. But I do prefer the sound of my PC connected via USB to the microstack over the H120 optical out to the microstack. That's my personal preference and opinion, no explanation required...

    HD650 + Micro Stack: There's More?!?

    Not that this will change the sound sig of the senns but it may improve overall SQ, try using USB instead of the Digital out from the SB.

    looking for MP3 player with a decent line-out?

    The Rio Karma has a headphone out (on the DAP) not a line out. I never implied otherwise.
