    Apologies in advance if this has been answered already, but I'm wondering if there's a portable DAC/headphone amp that will support playback of the highest resolutions on Amazon Music from an iPhone 11. My understanding is that the Audioquest Dragonfly series only support high-res streaming via...

    Hi, I have a DAC / Preamp / headphone amp (Yulong Sabre DA8II, ), which I am currently using as an DAC + headphone amp (it is rated 1W), connected to my laptop using USB. When I turn it on, there is some white noise (like wind) coming in the earphones. The Yulong is connected to a wall socket...

    It's new with the original packing and accessories. I meant to return it to Amazon after auditioning this and a couple of other gear, I missed the return window. Now I am finally getting down to making this post. If I remember correctly, it is every bit good as the various glowing reviews claim...

    iFi is a UK audio brand with an impressive catalog of headphone-focused products including DACs, amps and DAC/amps. The Zen Can is a straight-up headphone amplifier, no DAC. Its focus is on giving you the gain you need to enjoy power-hungry headphones, even when using something like a phone or...

    Hey guys, Been searching for a solution to this and not come up with anything yet. I have a young child and the wife and I would like to watch movies quietly while she sleeps. So, of course I wired my couch with bass shakers and we have a nice dual Sennheiser RS185 system for the main audio...

    hi all. I would like to find a headphone amp under about $200 and I am so confused about which of the hundreds of models available that I should buy! I have a Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, and even a Sennheiser 599, which sounds like garbage on my Denon small home theater setup, probably needs an amp...

    I am going to buy the STAX SR-009S earspeaker, but am a novice in the high-end audio world, and need some advice selecting a full setup (amp + preamp) that won’t limit the performance of the SR-009S. My reason for this purchase is that I used to have a STAX SR-L500mk2 with an SRM-252ii amp...

    Truly great sounding music on the go typically requires an investment in a portable rig with better amplification than what you find in a phone. You could invest in a dedicated player with beefy built-in amps, but the cost of such a device is often very high, and you do not get the same...

    Hey All, Alright I’ll try and make this short and sweet. I dont consider myself to be an audiophile by an means but I have plenty of experience with A/V etc for 20 years. I say I’m not an audiophile because I have a super hard time telling the difference between DACs and head amps. Headphones...

    THX is usually associated with certifying the performance of commercial cinemas and consumer audio and video products. But the company is also deeply involved in developing new technologies and licensing them to manufacturers. Case in point: the THX AAA amplifier. This ultra-quiet amp design was...

    Most of the headphones I've owned over the past three decades have benefited when paired with a dedicated headphone amp versus being powered by portable devices. There are countless amp options at every price point, but in that crowded field, the Samson QH4 ($70) stands out. The new QH4 got...

    The trend toward wireless audio is evident almost everywhere. For example, Apple has abandoned the headphone jack in the iPhone 7, and others are likely to follow suit. But what if you want to use your favorite wired headphones with such a device? I found a super-cool answer to that question at...

    Can any recommend a headphone amp for a receiver? I have an Integra receiver, approx 10 years old. When using headphones one channel is louder than the other. I had the receiver repaired a few years ago but it's happening again. It's probably time for a new receiver... I assume the amp should...

    I just picked up a pair of AKG 550's on ebay (closed back) and also own a pair of open back Beyerdynamic. I am between the Cayin C5 Portable HIFI or the AUNE B-1 Class A amp. I am leaning towards the AUNE... Any advise? Also first post.
