    New Audio-Gd Reference 8 and Reference 9?!

    Someone posted this over in the computer audio but i thought here was more appropriate. Right now only the chinese site's updated, so we can only ogle at the internals. It's looking really good. н¨ÍøÒ³ 1 н¨ÍøÒ³ 1 Man, Kingwa is on fire. Ref 9 is their new entry-level balanced dac...

    Review of the Audio-Gd DAC-19 DF / MKIV

    Introduction н¨ÍøÒ³ 1 I thought it might be useful to include some background information so it’s easier to know where I’m coming from. I was using a Styleaudio Peridot DAC + Audioengine A5 speakers. I had a Compass DAC before and back when I was comparing the two (just the DAC section)...

    Upcoming Audio Gd DAC?!

    I was googling for a used dac19/19mk3 and look what i found off a chinese forum. Appears to be a new 'DAC17' model and apparently will retail at around 400USD. It looks good, finally there's a DAC that fills the void between the DAC19 and FUN. Might anyone have the inside scoop on this...

    Is this normal for hd650?

    Okay, so i opened up the hd650s i bought off a fellow head fi-er to clean up the innards, and saw something rather disturbing. Or am i over-reacting? The pictures don't capture the detail very well, but the entire driver is black with uneven spots of shiny bits on it. Note: The...

    How much to pay for 2nd hand audioengine a5s?

    First of all.. i'm not based in USA, so i don't have access to alot of the slickdeals you guys have. A brand new A5 costs me approx USD375. Someone has the older revision A5 with no warranty left and is willing to part it for USD241. Would that be a decent deal?

    Advice needed: Upgrade from E4C

    I've had my e4c for some time now and i think it's finally time for an upgrade. I think i would like something more fun sounding AND wont bust my bank. I've heard the SF5 pros but didn't really like them - not sure if its the UE sound signature that i'm not fond of or just those particular...

    Does anyone make a stereo-mono converter here?

    Well, i'm not based in USA, so i can't go down radioshack to get one.. Plus for some reason the audio stores in my country don't sell that.. I've went to at least 6. It's for use with an ipod. I was wondering if someone makes one, then i could pay you for it.. I'm deaf in one ear, that's why...

    Shure Olive Foamies Isolation/Feedback

    I've been using them on my e4cs for around a week now, and i realise i'm not getting as much isolation as compared to my old er6i biflanges. I suspect the foam's not the correct fitting. When i plug out my e4cs, the foamies dont appear to be that deformed looking.. leading me to believe that...

    Any advice for me? Lost my ER6i

    Lost it in a cab while i was getting off, TOGETHER with my ipod classic 80gb. It hurts so bad. Now i'm wondering whether i should get another er6i or look into something else. Don't think i felt so much love for a gadget before. The only gripe i had about the ER6i was the lack of bass. I...

    ER6i Impressions

    Finally received my package yesterday, spent 1-2 for casual listening. All i can say is they are soo good. Separation is great and clarity is just astounding. One thing kinda irritates me though: the microphonics.. that just destroys the great experience i have with these IEMs, i don't really...
