    ZMF classic vs argon mk3

    From what I have seen on the internet there has only been 1 statement I saw that compared them both. Apparently the argon offers more bass but other than that , the rest are the same from the soundstage to treble and so on. I plan on using it to listen to music primarily with genres consisting...

I usually use my headphones ALOT and after using the LCD2 for a few like 10-15 minutes my neck was starting to sore. Unless I start taking roids and...

    Music Server vs. ripped files on a computer? Sonic benefits?

    As the title says, am I missing something by just using ripped files on my computer as opposed to using a dedicated music server like an Aurender or an Innuos/Zenith? (FYI, I use a Chord DAVE and a Windows PC with external solid state drives for my music storage.) Thanks.
