    Buddy has ALO Pan Am which uses the WM8524G chip but only supports up to 96khz.  According to the WM8524G's datasheet, it supports up to 192khz.  After a long talk with ALO, it looks like this is simply a driver issue.  Basically, it is using default window USB drivers that only support up to...

    HIFIMAN EF-5 or ALO Pan-Am...help me!

    Both of them get  good reviews. And the difference with the price, I feel is comparable since the Pan-Am has a DAC. Don't really need the DAC. Will use the audio-gd NFB-11.32 or Maverick Audio Tubemagic D2. Since I also have the Maverick Audio A1 that use the same tubes that Pan-Am does that is...

    FujiyaAvic 2012 Autumn Headphone Festival in Tokyo report by Currawong

    The highlight of this Autumn's festival came not while I was in Tokyo, but, funnily enough, on the way out. As I looked out the window as we flew out of Tokyo, I noticed we were heading in the direction of Mt Fuji. The plane then banked slightly and I feared that our course would change, for I...

    Head-fi,   I have done my research and have settled upon the Bottlehead Crack for the HD650. But once I started thinking about it, I realized I would only upgrade the HD650s to something else, something better, most likely an LCD-2 or LCD-3. And with this new mindset, I set out to find an...
