I'm curious how many people here have turntables (that aren't neglected in the garage or attic). There are a lot of great things that I'd love to see drop here specifically for turntables. Record clamps/weights, phono preamps, cleaning supplies, etc. There are so many accessories. Having a turntable show up from time to time would be pretty cool too.
Obviously if nobody is really interested in turntables here there isn't much point trying to find some cool stuff to drop.
KEF LS50 Drop....Anyone else drooling at this prospect?
For those of you who may not know, the KEF LS50's are one of the best rated desktop/monitor speaker around. They have received constant praise from sites like "what hi-fi", cnet, sound and vision, stereophile magazine, etc etc. almost always achieving a near perfect score and receiving multiple 2016 product of the year awards.They are normally $1500 for a pair, and come in some pretty awesome color schemes like black and gold, titanium grey and blue, white and blue, and red and gray I believe. I've been saving up for these for a few weeks now, and I would love to see them offered in a drop! Below are some links about these gorgeous works of art.
Thought I'd throw this idea out there.
My name is Mik, and I've been selling the Aural Life IEM Headphone Stands via Amazon and on the Aural Life website.
The purpose of the IEM stand is to display your collection of IEMs.
I've been on Massdrop for quite some time now, and it just occurred to me that it might be cool for our community to have our very own Massdrop IEM stands.
I've had a few audio companies ask me to produce IEM stands with their own logos on them.
I can ask my manufacturer to produce a limited run of IEM stands based on the amount of interest out there.
Of course, I'd have to talk to the Massdrop team themselves and work out all the important details and legal stuff.
What do you guys think?
I was looking into buying some IEM headphones here but none of these provide Bluetooth connecting cables for replacement.
I am a fan of wired headphones because I am an old-fashioned guy but sometimes I feel like my gym workout would be easier if I wasn't confined to my wired connection.
I've found some replacement Bluetooth wires for MMCX on Amazon with mixed reviews and the 2-pin connectors had different measurements and wasn't sure whether they would work.
Does anyone have any experience with Bluetooth connecting replacement cables and if so:
Which pair of headphones/connectors do you use?
Which replacement cables you got?
Is it worth getting?
Any advise on 2 pin/MMCX/other compatibility?
An incredible challenge posted by Audeze official - will Dan, Sennheiser and Focal step up?
This is real. This isn't a hoax. Attached is a screenshot from the Audeze LCDi4's Amazon page. Transcribed below:
Buyer Question: How much do these headphones cost to manufacture? I'm curious what the markup is
Audeze's Response: No problem - just ask Sennheiser, Focal, HiFI Man, Beyer, and Mr. Speakers what their BOM costs are and send it to Audeze, and we'll post our information.
(Note from me - BOM = bill of materials)
You can see by the SELLER label this is the actual reply from Audeze official.
Audeze has since deleted the comment, but I was amazed to see someone both bold enough to ask this question, and Audeze being bold enough to reply. I screenshotted the comment not realizing they later deleted the reply, immortalizing it forever.
I think Dan of Mr. Speakers lurks Massdrop, and maybe others do too. What do you say? Can we get sign-offs from the major players to agree to post their production costs? Audeze has issued this incredible challenge, who will step up?
