    Suggestion: Disable profile posts

    Whilst it can be amusing when people post a public profile post when think they are sending a PM, my feeling is that it’s unfair and unnecessary. Can I suggest that part of the forum be disabled (or posters get some sort of warning that their posts will be public)?

    There's a podcast from "down under" that is gaining a bit of a loyal following. Entitled "Three Sad Bastards", it usually consists of three long-term friends bickering about their love of hifi. Entertaining, as long as you don't take them too seriously. But the latest episode actually has...

    does it make sense to test how amps behave when they clip?

    Do any DACs apart from RME have equal-loudness features?

    Hi all, hopefully the title is self explanatory. One of the features that attracts me to the RME-ADI2 DAC is the loudness feature, but I'm hoping there exists another DAC that also has this at a lower price. Does anyone know if such a device exists?

    I have a pair of Hifiman edition X planar magnetic headphones. I mainly listen on my iPhone and I find that it lacks enough power to drive them properly. Is there a portable device that can go in between my phone and my phones that will give me more power and possibly a better DAC. Something...
