    SOLD - Cambridge Audio iD100 digital transport for iPod/iPad/iPhone/Nano NIB

    I had planned on using this dock as a digital transport for my iPod classic feeding a high-quality head amp of some kind; but after we moved back to the states from Germany, this sat on a shelf unused until ultimately I picked up an Oppo HA-1 (already MFi) and moved on from my iPod to one of...

    So I am buying a Rega RP1 soon, and I was wanting to go with the Cambridge Audio Azur 640p to go with it, but the guy I am buying it from is recommending "the Tonar" (didnt give me a model #) for 50 bucks less.   Any thoughts? 50 bucks is nothing to me, and ive been looking up the 640p for a...

    Small Objective 2 Review

      To Start…   There are a lot of amps out there that use exotic topologies and expensive parts.  Even “budget” amplifiers try to get in on this game.  Too often, that practice fails and you end up with a “transparent” amp that is anything but.  Or an amp is made that trades reliability for...

    USB DAC recommendation

    Id like to have some USB DAC recommendation. As I have powerful amp with punchy headphone, I want a neutral DAC. Also, good jitter handling is a high priority for me. How's little dot DAC 1 or Pico? Is there a better one with more recent chips? My price point is $300 or lower.

    AMP A / B COMPARISONS

    I made a little box with 2 headphone cables coming out of it with standard 1/4" phone plugs on them, a DPDT switch, and a single female headphone jack.   This allows me to directly compare 2 different amps with the flip of the switch.   The headphone cables I used are pedestrian, just...

    Not Getting Any Sound? Help!

    Hi there,   It's been a while (admittedly) since I've listened to my records. The problem was that my old stylus broke while I was moving rooms in the house, and I hadn't gotten around to replacing it until now (Some 2-3 months later)   Anyway, I'm going from the N97xE for my M97xE to...

    BY REQUEST: Best sounding HP jacks on integrateds/receivers.

    Now, we need a thread discussing which integrated sound good, and what characteristics they have! I think we should start a non-dedicated amp appreciation thread, where people can post what non-dedicateds they've used. Well, two requests anyway. In any case a thread (which should be made a...
