    Allnic ZL cables

    The Allnic website has a list of all dealers and distributors worldwide. Someone in your region should give you cables to audition. They are worth a trial - I recommend in descending order: ZL5000 PC to the power distribution center, and amplifiers ZL5000 SC (solid-state amplifier) ZL8000s...

    Review: 64Audio A18T Custom In Ear Monitor

    Who makes a quality amp that can perform well with an 8 ohm impedance in-ear-monitor? Woo I hear is good. Anything else to consider?
