i mostly know about headphones. Innerfidelity- reviews and measurements for headphones- loosely affiliated with stereophile AFAIK. run by Tyll Hertsens. Great Guy Cnet- The Audiophilliac. Reviews and articles by Steve Guttenburg. various audio gear. Another great guy Headfi- one of the Largest and most diverse headphone forums. a mixed bag. run by Jude another great guy but possible corporate shill. r/headphones. not a bad reddit but the rules are pretty strict albeit reasonable. if you praise beats as being built well and being a good price you will be downvoted to hell

Depends on what facet of the audio industry you're talking about. I'm mostly on the recording side of things. Here are some good references for that end of the industry. (For some reason I can't post URLs, so these are the best I can do):
soundonsound dot com The general go-to for all things recording. Lots of knowledge to be gleaned from the archives.
recordinghacks dot com I mostly use this for the microphone database, but there's lots of other info to be had.
quietplanet dot com Gordon Hempton's blog. He hasn't updated the content in years, but it's chok full of good information for field recordists.
youtube dot com / channel / UCHHf1h8k7MA6-AG8FXjnQSw Booth Junkie's channel on Youtube is crammed full of good information for anyone doing voice acting or voice over work. His series for VA using Reaper is worth its weight in gold. (Ok, so electrons don't have a lot of mass, but you know what I mean.)
youtube dot com / channel / UCjL6MFoRxI9dbybAYO4uNzA Allen Williams's channel on Youtube is likewise crammed full of good information for anyone doing location sound on a movie set. He's currently doing a series of videos for boom operators that's loaded with good information.
gearslutz dot com One of the better communities for all things audio, not just recording.
groups dot yahoo dot com / neo / groups / micbuilders Getting a little more esoteric, but this is probably the best community resource for people who build their own microphones and recording gear.
Most of the rest of the audio bookmarks in my browser are probably too niche to be useful, but I hope this helps.

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
