    welcome to the forum, You will learn quickly that the word best does not float around here much. Speakers, Dacs, Headphones and all audio equipment is extremely subjective.

    Option 1! I lower them on the shelf just underneath whe I listen to my kit. My kids are young, and a tube amp is not a great toy.

    Liquid Platinum Tube Rollers.

    Hello! I broke a tube yesterday by dropping one of my kids toys on the left tube... :angry: Does anyone know where I can replace them? Is this a good time to swap tubes? If so, any quick recommendations for a no-fuss type guy that just wants a nice mid-tier tube for a relaxing audio session...

    Closed back cans

    Good morning, I've been at this hobby for 3 years now and i'm starting to understand my needs a bit better. I settled down with my amp/dac combo that I enjoy and will keep for a while.

    Is going "balanced" really worth the hassle?

    my experiences: Plugged USB from My laptop running Tidal HiFi I run a RMI ADI-2 DAC and a Monoprice Liquid Platinum I Tried both single ended and balanced on my HD 800S I did not hear a difference. I might not be good at this, but the difference for me was soooooo minimal, I didn't even...

    All in one unit for my desktop with Sennheiser HD 800S - looking for input

    I'm by no means an expert, so even tho it's probably not pulling 100% out of the 800s's (probably more like 80-90%) It was more than enough for my needs. This hobby is all about hearing micro-details and dynamics and so on. For me, it's enjoying the music I love, and this setup brings me back...
