    Best settings for Handbrake when converting for iPhone 6s?

    If I should just use one of the presets, which one should I use? There is no preset for the iPhone 6s. The iPhone preset available, I think, is meant for the iPhone 5/5s (with the smaller screen and resolution). I've read I should just use the AppleTV 3 preset?

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    Thanks for the replies! Any recommendations for wall-mounted shelves or speaker mounts for the LSR305? I was recommended this on the Gearslutz forum but I am not sure because it will only give me about 2 inches of space behind the port vs. the recommended 5-6 inches.  ...

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    Thanks. Two more questions... 1. Will I have to make sure the tweeter of the LSR305 is at ear-height or at least close to ear-height? I've read that these monitors have a very narrow vertical dispersion. 2. Will there be any issues by having a software-based volume control for the...

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    Well I went ahead and placed my order for 2 x LSR305 + 1 x LSR310S for my new PC audio setup. They will be replacing my current Corsair SP2500 speakers. Hopefully it will be positive improvement in sound quality and maximum SPL.   However...   When used with the LSR310S subwoofer, will the...

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    But the subwoofer in my actual/main home theater only has XLR input while my A/V receiver only has a RCA output for the subwoofer channel. I use a RCA to RCA cable with an XLR adapter cable at the subwoofer end and it works fine?

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    Another question just came up...   Instead of connecting the Titanium HD to the LSR310S with RCA to 1/4" mono plug cables, can I use RCA to XLR cables instead from the Titanium HD to the LSR310S? Or will it not make any difference?

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    So the LSR305 + LSR310S combo will provide better sound quality and higher output/SPL than the SP2500 in the same conditions, correct?

    JBL LSR305 + LSR310S + Titanium HD

    I think that even with the LSR305 placed right against the back wall, they are already going to be aligned with my monitor. If need extra room behind the speakers, they are going to be in front of the monitor. I really think they are going to look and be physically "overpowering" next to my...

    Sony's new flagship 2014 - MDR-Z7

      Posted this in the Z5 thread:   You sure the Titanium HD will power them sufficiently? I currently own the XBA-3 IEMs and they are recognized as "easy to drive". However, if I connect them to the front-panel headphone jack on my desktop computer's case (which is connected to the Titanium HD...

However, if I connect them to the front-panel headphone jack on my desktop computer's case (which is connected to the Titanium HD and I don't think it matters if I...

    Sony MDR-7520

    I asked what amp I should get for the MDR-7520 + Titanium HD and was recommended the Schiit Magni. When asked if I should spring for the more expensive Vali or Asgard 2, the user was not sure if it would be beneficial because the MDR-7520 are a 24-ohm load.   So, should I get the Magni or...

    Best amp for Sony MDR-7520 and X-Fi Titanium HD?

      Thanks. Would there be any difference between plugging into the headphone jack at the back of the Titanium HD vs. plugging into the front panel headphone jack on the case (which is connected to the Titanium HD)?

    Best amp for Sony MDR-7520 and X-Fi Titanium HD?

      Thanks. What if I want to save the RCA output jacks on my Titanium HD for my speakers? Could I connect the output from the headphone-out on the front of my desktop computer case to the Schiit Magni by using a RCA to 3.5 mm converter cable?   Edit: Are you saying I will gain nothing by...

    Are my earphones blown? (Sony XBA-1)

    Quote:   The louder I play the XBA-3 (right earpiece), the louder/more noticeable the buzzing. I think that at 65% or lower volumes (using 5th generation iPod touch with no amp), there is no buzzing. Note, this only happens on bass-heavy songs at certain parts.

    iPod touch (5th generation) + XBA-3 + loud heavy bass songs + 90%+ volume = distortion

    Read more here, including the quoted post: http://www.head-fi.org/t/608447/sony-xba-series-review-and-comparison-xba-1-2-3-4/90#post_8899924   Is this due to reaching the limits of the XBA-3 or the iPod touch?

    Klipsch Image X10 vs. Sony XBA-2

    Quote:   Thanks! I was hoping that would be the case.   By the way, are the XBA-4s worth the extra over the XBA-3s? One reviewer on Amazon stated that the XBA-3s have better bass than the XBA-4s. Any info on this?

    Will an iPod touch (5th generation/latest model) be good enough to drive the Sony XBA-4 earphones?

    How is the amp in the latest 5th generation iPod touch? Will I need an amp to get the best quality with the Sony XBA-4 earphones? I read some past threads where it was said that with some earphones, there was no improvement with an amp when hooked-up to an iPhone/iPod.

    Sony XBA-4 + iPod touch 64GB (latest/5th generation) = a need for an amp?

    Thanks.   If I decide to go with the iPod touch, which amp would you recommend? Should be less than $100.

    Sony XBA-4 + iPod touch 64GB (latest/5th generation) = a need for an amp?

    I am planning on getting the latest iPod touch 64GB with the Sony XBA-4 earphones. My question is, will the sound be better if I used a portable amp? I read some previous threads and some mentioned that they heard no difference when using a portable amp. Does this mean it also depends on your...

    US iPod Touch: volume cap with EU firmware?

    Mind telling me where you bought a US iPod online from Poland? Will they ship to Dubai, UAE?

    Ipod 160Gb gutless volume

    I might be wrong but non-US iPods have a cap on the volume.
