    Good Starting Place?

    Before I get into this, I'm relatively new to the whole audiophile world (and a first time poster) so I apologize for any noobness! I am looking for a rig to get me started, but I also want it to be something that I won't be ashamed to still use a few years down the road. The very top of my...

    Xonar DGX vs higher end cards

    Is there a significant difference in features between the entry level Xonar cards like the DGX vs the higher end cards like the Xonar Essence STX or the Creative Xi-Fi Titanium HD if all you care about it sound through headphones?     While I do have an analog output to a receiver to power...

    Question about Objective2 Input

    Hey guys.   My first quality headphone hasn't arrived yet, but I can't stop doing research about the next upgrade to go along with it. I'm totally over the first idea of getting a standalone DAC, people who knows a lot more than I do convinced me here (...

    Which full size amp and dac to pair with my headphones?

    Two easy problems.

    1. I am attempting to connect my O2 amp to my computer to use my AKG-Q701 headphone. I don't yet have a sound card but am using a 3.5 male to male cable. Do I need to use a TOS cable or something as my audio player doesn't recognize a device there.   2. Is there another audio player someone...

    Objective2 Mini-Review and Discussion

    Yes, this counts as mini for me.  I’m prone to rambling...   Since Lord Voldemort was kind enough to send me one of his Objective2 prototypes in return for being one of his loyal minions (or maybe just giving him some useful advice from a different perspective) I figured I should write up...

    Need Help Deciding Between Some Grados

    Hey guys, at the moment I'm in the market for a new pair of headphones, and I was looking at getting a pair of Grados, either the SR80i, or the SR60i. Is there a large difference in the sound quality between the two? I've read that the 60's are easier to drive, while the 80's sound much better...

I listen to a lot of Metal so now i am in...

    USB Isolator build

    This was a fun little project i have been working on that may be of interest to some.  I recently built an Objective2 headphone amp with an ODAC in separate enclosures which had the unforeseen side effect of sucking me into the DIY electronics hobby. I then picked up an old Tektronix 2225...

    Hey Guys,   Please be easy on me since this is my first post although I've been a lurker for years.    I had the good fortune (misfortune?) of sampling some audio gear over the recent months (JHA JH5, HiFiMAN HE-400, Fiio X3, and most recently JDS Labs Objective 2).   For all of us who...

    So I could get an O2 for £90 which is like $139 for you American folks. Obviously prices of amps will vary in different country's. but from that price range, is O2 amp the best for a sennheiser hd 558 headphone, or should i look at other amps? I'm using a sound blaster titanium hd sound card...

    JDS Labs O2 Objective2 amp

    This was part of a hobby/project of mine that I have wrapped up with (testing various gear).  The O2 is in mint condition, I only charged it once and used it several times.  It still has battery left, so this means less than 8 hrs (stated battery life is around 8hrs per charge) are on it.    ...
