    LCD-2 or 3?

    Finally decided to keep an Audeze around as I'll have a second living room. Ear time vs bang for the buck is the issue here so I'm wondering which I should pick.     Ear time can probably be measured in minutes per year. I've had the HE/V90 for years now in my existing living room (under a...

    Question For Stax 009 & HD800 Fans Who Like Electronic Music

    I've been steadily upgrading my gear over the last several years. Currently, I'm running a Headroom Max into HD800s.   I went through several different upgrades on my way to the HD800s, with the previous step being the HD650s. Of course, both are awesome, but the HD800s are SO much more...

    What would you say are the best 3 IEM's out in the market now ?

    If money was no issue,   Which 3 IEM's would you consider are the best in the market right now ?   No music preference just looking for general individual recommendations.

    Why do you people spend hundreds of dollars on headphones

    Reading around and and you have guys asking for recomendations on headphones that cost 200 bucks.   I wouldn't pay more than 50 bucks for a pair of headphones, if that.   I have 20 dollar sony headphones and they sound betetr than this overrpriced beats garbage or whatever

    New York Audio Show 2014

    I was there today. I heard the Mr Speakers Alpha dog, Not Bad. I heard them with the Hugo Dac/Amp, I think they were a little flat and polite. Maybe they need more power??   I really liked the Kingsound H03s, the only issue bing you need a special amplifier to pair with the headphones. If they...

    Delivery times, BHSE, Cavalli LL Mk2, EC Electra, Woo WES and "customer service".

    Greetings.   Having had dynamic HP set ups for years and had almost every HP/amp combo there is, I have decided to jump back into Stax and go for an SR-009. The choice of amp is the question.   Years back I had an O2 / SRM 717 and I preferred the SS energiser to the 007 by quite a margin.  ...
