There is a whole new world for you to explore, and re-explore songs, you thought you knew. Todays access to studio quality files is key. Streaming is great for cruising, and to explore beyond your normal shores. Hirez streaming such as Qobuz is bucks, but very nice. For nirvana listening, get the actual best from places like: https://store.acousticsounds.com/cat/365/Digital_Download Set a budget and let us know what your listening pleasures are, folks will provide great advice for a dac/amp rig. A great paper, so I don’t have to go long here, but it is confusing, truly, so questions welcomed: https://www.us.marantz.com/-/media/Files/DocumentMaster/MarantzNA/US/Marantz_DAC_White_Paper_4_5_2016.pdf

I was schlepping bags at the AD home show years ago, when I heard some music and stopped..... turned around and there was no vinyl in evidence, in the booth... but it wasn’t sounding vinyl anyway,, so... I went back and asked what I was listening to? I was told a Linn studio recording in 24/96 FLAC... Take me to the water, we finally got access to some actual recordings, not the “hand-me-down” transfer formats we have been subject to. Now that some before very, very expensive hardware to fully utilize these files has become normalized, you are now virtually enter the studio, and hearing what the artists and the studio crew were experiencing. I am now re-listening to a new release of music, that I once again - though I knew, now released in DSD mastered from the original tapes. https://store.acousticsounds.com/d/133316/Pink_Floyd-Wish_You_Were_Here-Hybrid_Multichannel_SACD Your quest quickly becomes sourcing these studio level versions of your favorites. Some new studio recordings are going direct to DSD, stuff is amazing, my hardware now lags here, a bit, but happy as a pig in soup listening now.

The future of music events will be including the option of direct streaming and I would guess an option on future ownership of the release, if made. So here investment is the future.

Haven't picked up the SACD version... yet... but the Wish You Were Here Immersion Box set is a nice set for a diehard fan with stereo, Quad and 5.1 mixes of the album.

Just bought a Drop + THX 789 what's next?
I'm on a 500-600 budget and really want to upgrade. Right now I'm running an SHP-9500/Steelseries Pro Wireless. I just purchased the THX 789 and I'm looking to purchase a Dac+Headphone combo that would work well with the 789. Any recommendations in the 500-600 range? Thanks

Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!

Drop x Panda buzzing noise
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?

DAC/Amp to use with Scarlett Solo interface?
I have a Scarlett Solo interface I use to make music sometimes and it really cleans up my music playback. Although being used for music creation, the playback is a flat response, but I think a DAC or an Amp could spice things up and be used for a good mix reference tool. Does anyone use a DAC or Amp with a music making interface?

Can someone from customer support please reach out.
I purchased an R5 Saber edition, and the unit lasted about a week before it died on me. Someone named Haley said it would take a few days for her to reach out to someone to see if there are any troubleshooting tips. That was on Sept 18th, and I still have not gotten a response back. I sent another email asking for a refund because this is stressing me out that after spending $400 dollars no one from customer support is responding.

I would love a custom Koss build for sale. PortaPro X headband, KSC75x drivers and black Yaxi earpads.
I know I can make this myself, but I would happily order a pair. Throw in MMCX connectors on the drivers, and who could say no to such an awesome creation?
