I have no opinion on them since I only own the Micca OriGen G2

The Massdrop Grace DAC +O2 will work as well, if you want to save $100. Once you jump to that $250-$300 price point you have A LOT of options. Fostex HP-A3 Aune X1S Liquid Spark + $100 DAC JDS Atom + $100 DAC Topping A30 + D30 And many more.

You won't hear a difference between the two. The Amp section is identical, and both are quality objective 24-bit DAC's. Get whichever is cheaper for you in Canada.

They both use USB, you must be looking at just the amp. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-o2-sdac-dac-amp

Varmilo Problems on Mac
I bought the Varmilo Dragon Phoenix VA104M Mechanical Keyboard and initially it worked great. I'm on a Mac, so I got some mac modifier keys at maxkeyboard.com. The only problem with them is that the LED backlights shine brighter through these than the other keys. I may try to attenuate the keys somehow. Any suggestions? Unfortunately I've run into a bigger problem: I used the traditional method of remapping the modifier keys to the mac layout (through the Keyboard panel in the system preferences) and all was fine for about 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden certain keys seemed to remap themselves. I reset the Keyboard mapping in the system preferences and this is what I'm left with (using Windows ID's): Left Control is mapped to Caps Lock Right Control is fine Caps Lock is mapped to both Control keys Both ALT keys are mapped to nothing, unresponsive Both "Window" keys are mapped to the ALT keys I installed Karabiner - Elements and was able to remap the Caps Lock and Control keys to...

Why Massdrop rebrand to Drop?
When I was looking for new headphones this past month, I thought Drop was a different company, but realized later that it was Massdrop all along. In my opinion, Massdrop brand is better, it identifies them who they are. Drop? That is too generic and it does not really say much about the company. I do not see why they need to rebrand themselves. If they want to rebrand their name for said reasons, of all the names, why Drop? Drop reminds of DropBox or something.

How do I setup my HD58X properly?
Greetings, I just got my new headphones today, but I have the feeling they don't sound as good as the should. Are there some Windows settings I need to change or something? I have an amp (the SoundblasterX G6.) Maybe I need to tweak my amp settings? Or maybe I need to use some EQ settings? I'm not really an expert. Thank you

Are there any headphones like the hd820 but way cheaper?
the sennheiser hd820 are the pair of headphones I’ve been looking for. They are closed back with a very wide soundstage, they apparently sound great, it has light isolation and they look sick! The only reason I’m not getting one is because the cost 2400 bucks. Is there any pair with same features but cheaper; like 700 or less [image]

Nothing wrong with the 789 at all, just wondering if the current drop THX amp will get an upgrade.

Subwoofers
1) What is the difference between "front firing" and "Closed Box, down-firing drive" sub. I guess front firing are more expensive so better. 2) These are specs for 3 different subwoofers in rel acoustics line. Does it matter which one I chose? What difference would it make? a) -6dB at 28 Hz, b) -6dB at 30 Hz, c) -6dB at 32 Hz 3) Any experience or reviews on Rel Acoustics Sub Woofers? I am considering pairing it with KEF LSX. Which model would be good?

Anybody have the QDC Anole V3?
Does anyone else have these cans? It can't just be me, but I think they kick ass! Thought they were crazy expensive then I saw the top of their line! I would really like to hear owners' opinions. They look almost as good as they sound, post pics, please? ;-) [image] [image] [image]
