    Mobile music upgrades.

    I've lived with an sdxc modded ipod for a number of years via Sony mdr 800 ex St and its been OK. But I fancied a change, the ability to drive balanced and use PEQ. Enter the fiio m15. Sounded a little better than the ipod with no eq, using Oratory's 10 band PEQ with the Sonys was a revelation...

    Belt up.

    I was sent a tt belt in the post. Squidgy blue slightly narrower and more flexible than linns lp12 belt. It's not sticky but it has adhesion iykwim. I put it on last night, not expecting anything, but subjectively it had a profound effect. Either I'm hearing stuff or this belt has sharpened...

    Servicing old gear.

    A while back I thought I'd like a cd transport, and decided to buy an old classic, Audiolab cdm, the original version with cdm 9 Pro mech. I picked one up for £100, gutted it, recapped everything, new belts, drive pulley, drop of oil on the motors, stripped and greased the sled, new bulbs for...

    Audivarna Studio

    Anyone watch the live stream reveal of the new Audivarna? Looks like they've reskinned it and rebuilt a lot of the back end as well as improve the control app. I'm a long time user on mac as it has long been the most stable playback app that handles most file formats and handles auto sample...
