    Radial Engineering (Twin-ISO)

    Hey Guys. I was wondering if anyone here has some feedback on this brand? From what I gather, Radial acquired Jensen so their products should use high quality transformers. I can't read any negatives online either. I suppose one can't go wrong with this brand for this kind of product? This is...

    New Schiit Modius AK4493 DAC announced

    New DAC unveiled. 'Unison' USB, AKM AK4493. Modi's bigger brother. Measurements look "good". Only oddity is two separate output stages, one for balanced output (LME47924-based), one for single-ended output (OPA1662-based). SE one is performing better through the AP...

    Headphone amplifier with balanced pass-through?

    Just wondering if anyone knows of any... for example, the THX 789/887 have SE passthrough but not balanced. So far haven't found any that offer this. Thanks for any tips :)

    AK unveils new 'AK4498' DAC with dedicated D-S chip

    "AK4191EQ and AK4498EQ split the traditional DAC's digital filtering & delta sigma modulation and analog parts to reduce the interference between the digital and analog parts. The general idea is similar to removing the current-voltage conversion with the AK4499EQ. The more scattered the better...

    New: "Jotunheim R" for Raal headphones

    This just came out: Includes AP testing from Schiit hence the thread. It says it can deliver up to 13A which seems insane. But, the distortion looks actually pretty bad at 1A already? I'm really puzzled by the AP report. Doesn't look very good at...

    Recommendations for DAC w/ AES/EBU?

    Sorry if this comes across a bit lazy but I'm looking for a DAC that supports AES digital in, and that will not break the bank. Would rather not spend a grand. Open to used deals. I just see mostly 'Pro' gear and more expensive products supporting AES/EBU. Would appreciate some extra input. Thanks

    [Sold] SMSL iDea (dac-amp dongle)

    For sale the SMSL IDEA. Had bought this to use with work computer. Not really needed anymore. As new, barely used. Sounds great, goes pretty loud for a dongle. It's really small which is convenient. Improves upon sh*tty audio of lower-end phones or computers (from my limited testing). This...

    Transformers adding some "iron" to the sound

    So I'm pretty flabbergasted how this is supposed to work, but many audio forums, gearslutz in specific seem to swear by transformers somewhere in the audio signal adding something fun/warm/vibrant/"iron". Transformers of note are Jensen, Cinemag and others. So I got to try some Jensen...

    Some measurements of iFi iDSD Pro DAC with comparisons

    So back when I had an iFi black label which was a really nice, powerful little handheld device, I always wondered about their top-tier iFi iDSD 'Pro', especially considering the iFi black label measured pretty decently (good to very good), with its highlight a very powerful amp. On Jan 3...

    Some measurements of Holo Audio Spring DAC

    EDIT: @WolfX-700 has measured holo spring, holo spring 2 and holo May. I suggest you check out those accurate measurements instead. Enclosed here are measurements by third party (and reseller!) Wildism Audio. Note that they can easily be cherry picked, but let's see how a $1600 R2R-ladder DAC...

    After XMOS, Amanero: ESS now has an USB chip

    Just something intriguing, ESS now has its own USB bridge, the 'ES8620' chip. Gustard was quick to make a device built on it, released in late September. I don't believe...

    FAT sounds best

    Looking at reviews of the SMSL iDea and the Sabaj Da3 I came across this post and felt it was worth a chuckle and a share.. I swear only the audio hobby brings out such hocus pocus into otherwise logical-thinking people.

    Topping D50 (sold)

    I'm auctioning off my Topping D50 which I bought during the aliexpress sale since I'm keeping my older/less precise DAC and I don't need two. If you need a great performing DAC feel free to bid, I placed an international ebay auction starting at €100/$117. The unit was tested to work flawlessly.
