    PEQ Sennheiser HD560S vs upgrade to Sundara or Edition XS, or other HP

    I'm using Senheiser HD560s via UAPP with Oratory or Crinacle PEQ.through E1DA9038D DAC/amp. It really is a marvellous listening experience. Using model specific PEQs, would HiFiman Sundara (£300), Edition XS (£430) or any other headphone up to about that £400ish price range be superior and if so...

    Hi, I feel a bit lost as I'm new to this space, and I'd really appreciate your help. I'm looking to get a setup that would power both a pair of active studio monitors and a pair of headphones. Both are entry-level (JBL 305P MKII and Sennheiser HD 600). At first, I had been considering buying...

    SMSL AO200 THD+N compared to other "lower power" class D amplifiers

    I just happended to stumble upon THD+N data @ 4 Ω for the AO200, published by Aoshida. SMSL isn't even displaying this data themselves on their AO200 page. They only show results for 8 Ω. Obviously, I can't check whether the data is correct and actually belongs to the AO200. But I thought I'd...

    Vintage vs Modern; Class A vs A/B

    My journey so far... I've been on the hi-fi merry-go-round for a little while now, and having an engineering background, decided to go the vintage route as an attempt to save on costs. I've found that after re-capping these units from the 70's, these units generally perform quite well...

    Can you compare hearing sensitivity and mic self-noise like this?

    Apples to oranges or pear-to-pear networking, that is the question. So that on top is the bog-standard hearing threshold curve for sinusoidal stimuli, I assume. Now what would have happened if they chose another analysis...

    Amplifier SINAD list ASR + 3rd parties

    I wanted to compare amplifiers measured elsewhere to the ASR standard measurements: SINAD at 5W in 4 ohms, and power at 1% THD+N in 4 ohms. So I chose some amplifiers that interested me more (let me know if you wish I can add more), read their graphs, converted to SINAD, color coded and created...
