    Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes

    I have quit Fidelia et al and gone with Bit Perfect plus iTunes. Love it. Everything works. Add the iOS remote - Bliss. All the features (playlists in other words if you're listening Fidelia) and I think it sounds great! I do appreciate the advice of people describing how Bit Perfect works...

    Kinda like the belief that the Audeze either sing .. or they don't ! haha   ridiculous.

    New Audeze LCD3

    Quote:     You guys, no one specifically, are being asses.   I have the LCD2 - maybe they're not even comparable to the LCD3, who knows -  but I can plug them *straight* into a iPod Touch, hell, an original iPod (1st gen click wheel) - and they sound absolutely beautiful.

    The Accudio app by golden ears, a headphone revolution.

    Quote:   Does that not mean that you've found that "your setting" is FLAT? If so, isn't running your music through this App doing nothing ultimately?   (or is it still emulating an LCD2 with flat EQ, through your Beats?) ??

    FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought

    Quote:   Good review. I wish more amps would include a feature or two aside from a volume knob.   For instance ... E17 has 3 gain settings, full bass and treble control, balance, sleep timer, DAC, Optical IN, it's portable (or not), etc. ....    :-)

    Woo Audio WA6 + WA6SE: Tubes, Comments, Pictures, and Advice

    It is the metal changing shape and what-not, tiny welds included, as it heats up. Same with my Sophia rectifier. I am guessing that the "clicks" are metallic sounding. (and also not audible just in your headphone)

    Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes

    I think that is all good advice. Keep in mind most every player, half-dozen maybe even a dozen of them, will have a free version to use for a while so you will have plenty of time to do some evaluating and choosing. I use Fidelia, iTunes (looking into Bitperfect), and recently decided to give...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    That looks great! I have one, would love to look at some real wood - but frankly it's in great shape and it seems to work with the "veneer" ha ha

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    Hi, I have seen the descriptions "congested" and "complex music" used here on Head-Fi. what do they mean - what is it an example of music which would bring out those characteristics? Thank you!

    For what it's worth the 1/8" output jack on all the MacBook Pros are also dual-use - both stereo analog and digital optical output. It seems to work. Cheers. As you probably know, the typical plug has the signal on the outside metal surface of the entire shaft and tip, while optical has a...

    Mac OS X Music Players - alternatives to iTunes

    Quote:   A Macbook Pro. I'm familiar with adjusting Midi audio when using Fidelia. Would it just be the same with BitPerfect-- set it to 24 bit, etc. (the max. resolution file I'm going to play) ?   thanks for the help.

    New Audeze LCD3

    Quote:     It occurs to me that spontaneous big-smiling, which happens from time to time with Audeze -- is not quite a "flash back" -- but certainly relevant to leaping leopards and what-not.

    What is meant by 24/96?

    ...  and if you get into Hi-Def music (downloads of music which is recorded in "higher quality" than CD) - Like - Most all the music there will be 24/96 or higher (like 24/192).   I thought that might help fill out the definition a little bit.    The 24/192 will...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    What do you think about EQ the other way around-in other words decreasing by two dB … Does it degrade the signal in the same way?

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Quote:   I have been pleasantly surprised many times when plugging my LCD2 straight into an iPhone 4s, or iPod 2g, iPod 1g, and various Macs (with or without a Fiio E17 amp/dac) ........ and heard beautiful full sound -- not ideal of course -- but my feeling is they are extremely...
