Hi, I am new here and I am about to get the HD58xs as well as an amp with balanced 2.5 out and a single out 3.5 (Fiio BTR3K or BTR5). Sorry for a newbie question: Are HD58x headphones balanced? How do I merit by getting the balanced cable?
Hey, I just wanted to ask if anyone else is having the same issue I am... This is the second pair in which the right ear cup has began cutting in and out on me, and I'm wondering if anyone has seem something like this happen and has fixed it with a better cable. If so, I'd like to know which cable to pick up. I've only had these a few months, I'm surprised to see this kind of thing happen so quickly.
So I was planning to ask for a pair of hd58x for my birthday. However, I have read about a lot of people getting screwed over at the canadian border and their orders costing much more than they thought. So this got me wondering, does the 15$ drop charges for shipping to Canada pay for the border handling and shipping into Canada? Or will it end up costing even more?
P.S.: If you have any other open back headphone suggestions that are good for gaming that I could get a good price on in Canada, let me know!
I have both elex & HD6XX & while I really like the elex for how engaging, transparent, balance & detail & HD6XX for the smoothness & mids.. I want something that is wide, smooth & buttery while also having a frequency range meaning top & bottom extension & detail just relaxing, what headphone is it?!?
Best pre-amp & active speakers for Pro-ject Debut Carbon?
I am just getting into vinyl and have seen a lot of positive reviews on the pro-ject dc turntable. I was thinking about purchasing one, but didn’t know which pre-amp and active speakers I should pair with it. I am opting for active speakers to save money and space. Maybe once I get more into it, I can invest more into a stereo, etc. I am trying to find the best budget options for now as I know the pro-ject dc turntable is relatively easy to upgrade down the line.
any suggestions are welcome!
What can I use to move music over wifi to my stereo?
Afternoon guys, hope all is well in audio land.
I'm having a heck of a time with a system here. What if you have a big drive full of music but no easy way to get that music to your stereo?
Right now I have a tv with a couple of HDMI inputs. I have a universal disc player +AV receiver connected to one HDMI, and an Apple TV 4K connected to the other. I'm running a Sonos theater system off the digital output from the tv. I have the 2 channel outputs on the AV receiver connected to a stereo amp, which runs a decent pair of speakers. All of my movies and digital music are on a network drive attached to my wifi router. The stereo setup is for my LPs and CD/DVD/Blu, and the Sonos handles all the stuff I stream over wifi. It works pretty good.
Sonos sounds good, but not great. Its real value lies in how easy it is to use. As my stereo system evolves (I have some fantastic analog equipment now) and I go further down that rabbit hole, I now see that my enormous library of digital music...
