    Cans for Maverick Tubemagic D1+

    My very first post.   Recently, an uncle who moved to Australia (I guess he didn't outgrow his love of kangaroos as a kid! :-) handed me down his Maverick Tubemagic D1+.     Anyways,...  I am a measly factory worker with a somewhat limited budget of $250-$300, searching for a pair of closed...

    Apogee One vs Maverick D1 (vs other DACs)

    I just bought an Apogee One for recording purposes and wondering how it fairs to my Maverick D1. I've only had a chance for a quick comparison and it seems the One is clearer but this could be due to the lack of bass (or rather muddy bass from the D1).  Does anyone know which one is supposed...

    DJ Audio Interfaces vs. audiophile DACs

    Hi folks,   I was wondering why people spend so much money on their DAC for a headphone while DJs fill clubs with sound using audio interfaces. Generally, they seem to cost more, but there are audio interfaces for 600 bucks that give you 10 channels. So on the price, the DJ audio interfaces...

    FX-Audio Audio Preamp USB DAC XR1075 QS7779 SRS BBE Virtual Surround Headphone Amplifier on Ebay

    I picked up one of these on Ebay just for fun. I have to say I'm impressed when listening to a Dolby Surround encoded source.  I'm running the FX-Audio directly from the DVR analog out into the D1 analog in. It does not sound that great when a stereo matrix signal is absent. Also I popped in...
