    "Essential" fiio cables for travel!

    I have a fiio e7 on the way and was wondering what cables I should buy? I'll be using it with a selection of iems, an iPod classic 5g, and on planes, so assume I'll need an adaptor and some other small cables. Clueless at this point as it's the first portable dac/amp I've had. Sent via...

    Recommendation for Portable DAC

    I've been using the Fiio E7 with my Android phone for some time now and I'm happy with the sound. However I'm looking to reduce the bulk of my setup so I'm in the market for a small DAC/amp to replace the E7. I've been looking at the Dragonfly from Audioquest as well as the Fulla from Schiit.

    Upgrade from or to my Denon D5000

    After having the denon d5000 for nearly 2 years and buying cheaper mid fi (such as the AKG K702) cans along the way I have decided I like the denons sound the best. However it's been quiet a while so an upgrade is in order. I'm currently running the denons through the fiio e7+e9 combo and that's...

    Would this rackmount parametric equalizer work for removing HRTF from headphones?

    I'm trying to eliminate HRTF resonances in my listening setup. Right now I'm using a software parametric EQ but that only works in winamp and I want to do my entire signal path so that it works in games, in fruityloops, Itunes, etc so I can game, listen, and master, without those annoying 5k...

    Headphone w/ more bass imapct than AKG q460?

    Hi, could someone recommend me a headphone w/ more bass impact than the AKG Quincy Jones Q460. I really like the bass impact on the q460 and I also like that the treble is really soft/ the complete opposite of harsh. What I dislike about the Q460 is the mids, they sound boxy/congested.    So...
