    Schiitcago 2017 Impressions

    Have you contacted ESS to see if it is still there? This sucks if someone really did walk off with it. I have grown to trust this group and feel free to walk away from my gear at meets. I really hope this shows up and was just a mistake in what someone grabbed.

    Crack;Bottlehead OTL

    Has anyone seen any good instructions of the FAQ #3 mod for the resistors on the input or for the choke on the power supply circuit? Pretty sure I understand them, however, wouldn't mind having a go-by or something to reference off of.

    @MLGrado I never said they compromised for cost or that it isn't a sonically good amp/dac.  Its compromised in function.  Its to big to be truly portable (ala the Chord Mojo) and while trying to keep the size down you have to compromise for things like standard connectors and on a desktop amp I...

    I had the same result on the treble with the HD6XX and my Ether Cs.  Maybe they just aren't a good match as you said.

    Review by 'silvrr' on item 'iFi Audio micro iDSD'

    INTRODUCTION:   When I decided to sell my Chord Mojo the iDSD was one of the units that got put on my list to research more.  If you have a box to check, the spec sheet of the iDSD BL probably does it.  Super High PCM sample rates, check, DSD, check, absurd wattage output, check, optical, USB...

    Vibro Labs Introduction, USA tour, and Head-Fi discount!

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but the Aria has to go back to Luke for repair.   When I unpacked the Aria I noticed a small flaw in the housing which upon closer inspection while taking some pictures last night (macro lenses are great for finding every flaw in a product) I noticed it again...

    I Need A really Powerful Good DAC. There Is no price range

    What is lacking from the NFB-11?  Its putting multiple watts into your headphones based on the ratings, should be enough to make you deaf.     Also, what is your budget?

    Newbie Setup with Raspberry PI

    That would be a great first setup.     For help setting up the pi check this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/795895/a-70-bit-perfect-audio-player   Also any feedback you have on using the Pi setup and how it sounds is appreciated.     As a heads up volumio didn't play nice with my Modi 2...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    I didn't pull the pad off the Ether C Flow at the Chicago meet but there is definitely  some foam under there on the ear side of the driver, felt very similar to my 1.1 pair.  Also, as noted by @MrSpeakersPeter the wrong felt was installed (1 micron vs. 5 micron) for the Chicago meet pair...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    And here I was being very happy with my Ether C V1.1, listened to the Ether C flow and didn't like it at all, closed the book on the possibility of the upgrade.  Ill have to wait for another meet and someone hopefully will have a C Flow to demo.     I'm really surprised what I heard didn't...

    A $70 Audio Player?

      I remember looking into daphile awhile back and I didn't get very far with it.  Ill have to download the iso again and give it a try.  I like some of the features it has listed.  It may have just been an early release or something.  Thanks for the heads up on that!

    A $70 Audio Player?

    So Volumio (https://volumio.org/) which is a sister/cousin to Rune Audio that I use in the first posts of this thread has an x86 compatible version.  I think this may open an number of people up to this type of player.  Getting started on a x86 system brings the "scary" factor down quite a bit...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    So I'm not one of the "Mojo can do no wrong" types, I cite a lack of power for certain phones as a con for the mojo in my review (see my sig) However, the mojo to me (and many others) powers the Ether, Ether C and Ether Flow with great results. The Ether C Flow has the same driver as the Ether...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    Had the chance to listen to all four Ether variants at the Chicago Head-fi meet this weekend.  All of them were powered by my Chord Mojo and I used my stock 3.5 mm cable throughout as I switched back and forth.  I have the Ether C with 1.1 upgrade installed, no tuning pads, so that is what I am...

    Chicago area headphone meet - August 13th 2016 - ChiUniFi

    There should be a number of Ether Cs in attendance from the looks of things.  Ill bring mine and I have a balanced 4 pin, 1/4 and 1/8 cables so we should be able to hook them up to just about anything.  Looking forward to hearing the Flow Cs, see what the changes are.

    Care to share a shot of your setup the next time you take one?  As a photographer I always like seeing how other people approach a shot, especially when you have seen the result.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I'm getting some clicks over USB sounds like the Wifi as its only while the Wifi is in heavy use. I don't think I got the stock cable when I bought my mojo so your results may vary. The Digi+ from Hifiberry will give you an optical out

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Do you get any pops or clicks over USB? I use a Pi too and get a lot of RFI/EMI from the WIFI. At least that is what I have narrowed it down to. Can you share which Pi and Wifi adapter and USB cable you are using? I use RuneAudio (volumio offshoot) and don't think that would cause it but may...
