    Headphone Upgrade Path: Electrostatic vs Dynamic vs Planar

    This will be interesting. I am at a complete loss on how you get a major improvement from where you are - both the HE400i (my own primary cans) and the RME ADI-2 (which I wish I owned). Perhaps if you have not yet optimised fr profiles for each HP using RME PEQ? (0$, bunch of time). Really...

    MQA: A Review of controversies, concerns, and cautions

    Possibly a simplistic view, but when we are still dealing with 1%>5%>10% transducer distortion, to be fixated on MQA and it's 0.000000005 % whatever possible ' improvements seems a complete waste of time, money, engineering, and whatever other resources. A solution in search of a problem if...

    Great! Thanks! Hopefully, Erin will not again tie this to Facebook. Not another dime to Schmuckerberg for me. The world would be a far better place without Facebook IMO. Just my view.. From an old f--t..

    Recommendation for budget DAC + Headphone Amp + Preamp under $500

    Why the need for an all-in-one? Lots more choices if you might consider paired discretes.. Might gain performance and/or save a bit.. For example, for $110 there is the 'all-in-one' Qudelix 5k. Has a 10- band PEQ for optimising your speaker and/or HP response, and room corrections. Nice...

    SMSL SU-9 Balanced DAC Review

    Personally, I have trouble seeing the value for $440.. Maybe two years ago..ok. But today I think a good case can be made 'DAC solved' for $200 and under.. Now if it had included an L30 equivalent HP amp, and a 10-band PEQ...maybe.. Even so, Qudelix 5k ($110) + L30 ($140) = $250 = lesser SINAD...

    What items have you NOT purchased as a result of ASR?

    Just about to purchase a miniDSP IL-DSP when ASR post(s) advised PEQ implementation was defective. Couple weeks later PEQ became available on Qudelix. Purchased. Happy camper :)
