    Help Shape Our Next Innovation: The ZA5 Balanced Power Amplifier!

    Purifi More than $300 but worth it A pre-out and a sub out If you can do it for “Around $300” That would be quite an achievement

    I'm looking for a DAC with warm sound

    Using a single-ended tube headphone amp will introduce the distortion/second order harmonics that many people like and enjoy. I use one that is also a preamplifier and the sound is pleasing to me depending on the music genre. I also have a solid-state headphone amplifier/preamplifier that...

    All-including kit for DIY bookshelf speakers?

    Speaker are marked up obviously but if sold though a dealer/retailer the mark up is crazy. You can build a fantastic speaker and save a bundle CSS is one of the best examples
