    Geshelli labs archel pro vs jds labs atom

    This is pretty much an offshoot of my previous thread but I was hoping a dedicated thread to this would get me more direct comparisons between the archel and atom. Let me know if I am breaking head-fi posting etiquette, I am not very experienced in that. I have pretty much narrowed my choices...

    Which way is better when I connect both my Fiio A3 and A5 amp to my Cowon Plenue D??

    Hi there, So I want to know which way would give more sound, power etc: 1) Should I connect my A3 1st to my PD and then the A5 to my A3? Or 2) Should I connect my A5 1st to my PD and then the A3 to my A5? Because when I tried the number 2 way it "seemed" like I got more power but wasn't...

    WTB: Valhalla 2 (Or other affordable tube amp) [US - GA]

    My headphones are an HD800, a ZMF Atticus, and I’m probably grabbing another LCD–2 again soon (stretching my budget to the absolute limit). The LCD–2 maxes out on my Magni 2, but the other two are obviously nowhere near their full potential on it. Bonus if there’s any possibility we can do an...

    Does an ipod classic's amp output vary depending on headphone impedance?

    Hello! I have a great sounding pair of Klipsch earphones that have a strange quirk, namely that they don't seem to get recognized by any device as being high impedance, not my old LG V20 phone nor my PC. Thus they end up not being amped up properly and sound terrible which is a shame. I found a...
