The THX and the new balanced standard DAC look like, the solution they were meant to be. No entertainment screen frills with copper showing somewhere. The XLR connections,, use them, the updated DSD capability,, try it. The problem has been getting sound quality,, reproduced music at the level an artist would approve,, actually bouncing around $1K, this is a solution. It is this part of drop, what they do. I will also tell you that R-2R digital to analogues, are the most accurate reproduction of a human singing voice and played musical instruments I have experienced. It can even be improved, always nice, It is also expensive. DS is still the squeaky cleanest 🧼 and recordings are now made to work with the signature, everything becomes a filter, so really you want both in some form... but DS is cheap today for what you get, case: drop balanced dac. One rig can get you up there close, without too much budget pain; that bouncy $1K. The Elex hp here on drop and the Audio g-d R2R 11 dac/amp. http://www.audio-gd.com/R2R/R2R11/R2R11EN.htm Imperative, get a decent USB cable. https://www.amazon.com/Pangea-Audio-Premier-Cable-Meter/dp/B06Y1WRF26/ Don’t Panic, you also need a good player, a helpful guide: https://www.us.marantz.com/-/media/Files/DocumentMaster/MarantzNA/US/Marantz_DAC_White_Paper_4_5_2016.pdf

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?
