    Icon HDP vs. HeadRoom Micro DAC/Amp

    In effort to keep this concise, I'm curious how the two set-ups perform in comparison to each other (as I'm looking for a DAC and an amp). If you have any other DACs or amps to suggest (with a $600-800 budget for both) please do. I'm going to be using the Grado 325is as my primary headphone...

    ASUS Xonar STX vs. DAC + Amp

    Hello, I currently have an ASUS Xonar STX and am enjoying it thoroughly. I'm off to college soon, and I will be unable to take my computer with me--which entails that if I want to keep my STX, I will have to build a new computer exclusively for audio (it'd be rather low-powered...so it would...

    Do I buy an amp?

    Hello, I have a first gen Sansa Clip (i.e. not Micro SDHC expansion) and although they're not here yet, I will pair it with Grado SR325is (as well as my current HD595s). I'm thinking that I'm going to upgrade to a Sansa Fuze (perhaps the Clip+) and boost up the capacity with a Micro SDHC...

    Hey, I've never purchased a headphone amp...I just ordered HD595s, and I'm probably going to order the ASUS Xonar DX (best $100 PCI Express x1 card I could find) and am now looking for an amp to compliment it all. I don't know what "good" amps go for, so for my price range, I'm just going...

    SupremeFX II 8-CH Integrated Audio

    Hey, I have an ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard, and it came with the "SupremeFX II 8-CH". Does anyone know anything about this card (apparently, it's one of the best on-board chips there are)? I've been meaning to get a dedicated audio card, however, I don't have room for it on my...

    Looking for $100 IEMs

    Hey, I've been reading reviews, trying to find the best earphones for about $100. The best I've found so far seem to be the Jays d-Jays. You can find a review here: Jays d-JAYS Earphones | iLounge (I also found the d-Jays for only $60...so that's a plus) I've read about the...
