    Sony NW-A105 Digital Audio Player Review

    The EU cap is such a stupid idea that the mind boggles. Just look around on any public transport and see how many uses the included earbuds versus upgraded headphones. I can only speak for Sweden, but I would guess that somewhere around 70% have replaced the headphones. And with better...

    NAD C658 Streaming DAC Review

    Why aren't there any decent audio streamers with Dirac Live or other corrections? I refuse to buy a unit "blind" without a thorough measurement by @amirm. After finding this site, I only purchase equipment that's been tested here. I haven't been disappointed yet, every piece of gear works great...

    Auralic LEO GX DAC Clock Review

    Well, if you want to go crazy, just get a used rubidium atomic clock or GPSDO from eBay for a pittance. Connect it to my frequency generator card, where you can get eight different frequencies at 0 PPM and replace all your oscillators in your DAC. It won't sound better, but it will be insanely...

    SMSL M500 Teardown & ESS ES9038Pro DAC Thermal Analysis

    It would be kind of interesting to see how it performs with a heat sink mounted.

    Review and Measurements of Yamaha WXA-50 Streaming Amp

    I hate to say it, but it has pretty decent performance overall. I am still hoping for a reasonably priced amplifier a bit closer to the THX unit.

    Measuring RME ADI-2 Pro with QuantAsylum QA401

    And when doing balanced, you don’t need to terminate at all.

    Measuring RME ADI-2 Pro with QuantAsylum QA401

    You only need to terminate the unused input when doing unbalanced measurements. So remove the 50 ohm terminator on the input.

    Review and Measurements of Audio-gd NFB2 192 DAC

    Did we go through the evils of feedback, jump to the benefits of meditation for use as a tool for audio testing, and now we're back at the sins of feedback? I’m going to apply my nihilistic approach for this one...

    ESS THD ‘Hump’ Investigation

    Yes, very awesome! And they are making the new version with XLR, so I’m really anxious to get my greedy little hand on the new board.

    ESS THD ‘Hump’ Investigation

    The Khadas guys have fixed the problem. But they are working on a new version of the Khadas Tone Board, this one with XLR-connectors on it, so they will spin a new board with the fix included. It will be a couple of months I would guess.

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    It’s way overdue to draw my Audeze headphones instead. :)

    Review and Measurements of Audio-gd DAC19 DAC

    I don't understand how this company can still be in business. I bought two different op-amps from them, and they were horrible. Fully discrete components and the old NE5532 was many times better, but You can get it for pocket change. I’ve never seen a good measurement of any equipment from that...
