    What Brands of Headphones and Headphone Amplifiers do Fans of High Efficiency Speakers and SET Amps Enjoy?

    Hi LL, Thanks for bringing up EAR Yoshino!!! How are you enjoying it? As far as tube headphone amps go, I have only seriously heard Woo audio before. I know it's a popular brand among the head-fi enthusiasts, but every time I've heard it, it sounds slow, boring, and analytical, regardless...

    What Do We Mean By "Resolution"?

    Thanks. Brilliant writing by Alex Halbestadt. Excellent quote from Michael Lavorgna in the article: "Resolution can be a tricky thing when it comes to digital," my friend Michael Lavorgna recently told me. "Too much, and my focus shifts from music to sound; too little, and I become less...

    So whether we talking about the perception of audio or seeing the industry from a more holistic perspective, here’s a quote from Sir John Lubbock that can also shed some more light on where I’m coming from : “What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. ... In the same field the farmer...

    Microstrip, I respectfully disagree with you. To be honest, I just got a good belly laugh when I read your post. But I also sense some anger in your comments. Obviously, we view and evaluate the audio hobby from completely different frames, and enjoy different audio experiences. I gave you my...

    Degenerate?!?!!? :) :) :) What are your priorities, sir? :) :) :) I think you are missing the point , with all due respect. This is a luxury site for audio. Personal luxury is personal luxury. Many guys who own expensive audio gear aren't online, bragging about their stuff, yet just...

    She's also selling a whip for $535 or $550. A pretty good whip can be had for $30 or so.... :) According to Stereophonic, this DAC has been selling well. It must be going to ultra-rich guys looking for the highest price, and thus personal luxury is of priority, as we haven't seen too many...

    How Does the Output Voltage of DAC Affect the System's Sound Quality? Does it Matter if One is Using a Quality Preamp?

    How does the output voltage of a DAC affect system sound quality? What is the ideal voltage if one is / is not using a preamp? Does it even matter if one is using a great preamp? Or is it a concern only for guys who want to drive the amp directly from a DAC? How does, say, a voltage of 1.3...

    Hi Mike, I respectfully disagree. I don’t think any of this is organic per se. Adoption follows a fairly steady pattern of moving from an early market, dominated by few rich guys interested in luxury for its own sake in this case, to a more “mainstream “, “larger” block of more pragmatic...

    Hey Mike, With the wadax designer joining and explaining how it's a different / better design will be a much better approach than outsourcing that to worthless guys who have not done him any justice.

    Hi, Let me clarify: My tastes skew toward planar, omni, and high-efficiency because with the right partnering gear it expresses the emotion of music. That's why I love CAT - not because it does audiophile tricks like - soundstage, imaging, presence , bloom, treble, bass, dynamics, etc., and...

    Hi Stereophonic, Since you seem to have some type of relationship with the Wadax owner, is it possible to have him join the site and start a new thread? Look at the success the Lampizator thread and Taiko Exteme server thread are having with the company principals engaging with the fans...

    Hi Stereophonic, Since you have been a frequent contributor to Wadax information on this site, with unclear affiliation to Wadax to most members, it's only natural that people will question your incentives and motivation. Now I am not suggesting anything, but you should not be surprised by...

    Hey Elliot, The ads I have seen show audio pathways from Canadata as the distributor. thank GOD for Wadax that lady is not the distributor, as my understanding Avantgarde tried to get rid of that lady as their distributor , behind her back... The positive press the DAC got is from the least...
