    Brexit- beware!

    Sounds obvious- we in the UK have left the EU so new rules apply for importing consumer goods. Yup. Good luck finding out what they are and how they will be administered if you look on the UK government website but anyway.... A cautionary tale- decided to look at getting an RME DAC and so I...

    Sequential damage

    OK, sounding out sane advice on this. A headphone amp still very much in warranty has a terminal breakdown that takes out a pair of (expensive) headphones. This wasn't user error. Is it reasonable to ask the amp seller and /or manufacturer to not only replace the amp or refund (given the...

    The post in which Darko basically tells anyone who isn't a rich rube to ignore him and audiophilia in general

    Sage words delivered in such a condescending, elitist fashion. If you cut each section off before he says "unless very high end" or "unless very expensive", it's not bad advice.

    Adapter needed

    So, I have a cable terminated with 3.5mm plugs for beyerdynamic cans. I want to use the same cable, with adapters, into audeze xlr. Naively thought searching mini xlr female to 3.5mm female would yield results in the usual places. The plan would be to leave the adapters in the audeze sockets...

    Then, for not a lot of money......

    https://positive-feedback.com/audio-discourse/audioquest-dragonfly-usb-dac/ And in the grand scheme, $300 for a DAC isn't that much. But $1200!!! for an interconnect to run it to his preamp?? Also, what's the max feasible length of USB from computer to dac for audio?

    DAC distortions and audibiity

    So, Ive noticed some comments on a few DAC reviews which I think might not be quite correct. First- SINAD- lets say DAC X has been measured as a SINAD of 120 and DAC Y 110. That doesnt mean DAC Y has 10dB of distortion more than X that you would then hear, does it? (Taking on board Solderdude's...

    Wow. Only $250!!

    For a cable that shouldn't need to exist, between two expensive boxes that should be one. Neither of which works very well. But it's OK. Its good value. https://wallofsound.ca/audioreviews/digital/review-audioquest-carbon-balanced-aes-ebu-digital-data-cable/
