    That distortion graph is unreal!

    Klipsch The Three Review (Powered Speaker)

    As a Klipsch owner I'd say they've transitioned into a lifestyle brand that benefits greatly from their familiar name and the fact that their classics fit perfectly in the current trend of mid-century modern interiors.

    Klipsch The Three Review (Powered Speaker)

    Oof sorry man. I was thinking about price to build because the backside looks like there are just a few generic audio boards inside. See AliExpress on 2.1 amplifier boards for <$10,- and Bluetooth receiver boards for under $2,-.

    Klipsch The Three Review (Powered Speaker)

    The naming makes it seem as if it is part of the 'The Fives', 'The Sixes' line but they didn't seem to be as bad as this (great even with EQ). This might as well be a $20,- Bluetooth speaker, repackaged with retro Klipsch styling.

    Genelec 8351B Review (Studio Monitor)

    Sounds like they are a JTR captivator away from perfection. Would that make the difference between them smaller?

    Abyss AB-1266 Phi TC Review (Headphone)

    DMS: "These headphones will make you cry." DMS: *plays funeral classics* DMS: "They cost $8000,-." Linus: *cries* Amir measuring these headphones: *cries* It totally works! As for myself, I feel a bit better about having bought $400,- flawed Pandas now. Thanks Abyss!

    Abyss AB-1266 Phi TC Review (Headphone)

    You can always save up and buy the headphones later in life. I mean, unless you're not a real audiophile o_O /s

    Drop + THX Panda Review (headphone)

    As an owner I feel like sharing a little. There is a firmware update out now that'll allow you to upload EQ, straight to the headphones. At that point, whatever you connect to, the EQ will always be applied. I think an onboard EQ, independent of the source, is a great thing to have. As an...

    Comparison: PCM DXD DSD (Sound Liaison High Res Format Comparison)

    I don't know if I'm correct but I personally feel like hi-res is a better source if you use DSP corrected hardware. I draw a comparison to photography* where a raw image and a JPG that is processed in camera look practically identical but once you start to push it in certain areas during...

    Inside High res Music (Antonio Forcione) (Video)

    I get where he's comming from though. In practice, we all know that the audible range is covered quite nicely in 48khz. I just think that the maximum frequency is only half the sampling rate in theory and in a real world recording it wouldn't be as reliable. It is possible to generate a 24kHz...

    Wavelet Android EQ

    Holy shit!!! I owe both the creators of Wavelet and SoundID an apology for my rant. There's nothing wrong with my ears. I heard something that could resemble a correction that was applied twice... Well :facepalm:. As it turns out, SoundID uploads your corrections to the headphone. So while I...

    Wavelet Android EQ

    I tried Sonarworks SoundID recently since it was recommended and officially supported by the latest Drop Panda firmware. There are two issues that I had with that app: - It always factors in your personal preference that you set using loops of royalty free music that I'm not familiar with. You...

    Wavelet Android EQ

    I'm going to keep an eye on this app, I purchased the effects to support the creator. However, at the moment it does some really strange things. The correction of the Drop Panda sounds very unsatisfying. As if the correction is applied twice? Mid-bass (bass guitar) is reduced to virtually...

    JBL 4349 Review (Studio Monitor Speaker)

    That's the main reason I bought the Klipsch Forte. I had chased perfection for so long that I just had to let loose for a while. What I'd ideally have is one Genelec 8341 + MiniDSP set and one set with large horn speakers to just rock out. Maybe more people can relate to this: Sometimes I want...

    ddHiFi TC44B Review (Headphone Adapter)

    If power is sufficient, this should even be a nice desktop upgrade. If you're on a budget then the TC44B can be one device that does it all. Plug it in your desktop PC or take it with you. $90,- and you can rest assured knowing that your DAC/amp is clean.

    Norne Audio Premium Headphone Cable Review

    Thanks for stating the obvious :p but I'm more interested in speaker and interconnect cables. I should have probably stated that to begin with because my speakers didn't come with cables and when shopping around for cables, it would be nice to have some unbiased data on what it all really means...
