    Yup, we had to do it. Prudent decision given the circumstances. We will be back in 2022! To think, we were the only audio show of 2020. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Western Digital sells both bare drives as well as storage products. The latter come with their own AC adapter that you plug directly into the wall socket. I am guessing you have the latter, which means it falls into the first category Peter is...

    For both long and short runs I use balanced if at all possible, because with so much gear and external EMI I can only run single-ended connections for a short length before they will pick up noise.

    I'll second Randy's recommendation for the BHA-1. It's capable of driving any dynamic headphone with ease, and will often be the last headphone amplifier someone gets until they look for a different sound (e.g. tubes). For an outstanding tube...

    Unfortunately yes, a high-quality headphone amplifier is needed to get the best out of high-quality headphones. Independent of how the amplifier (and DAC) will impart its sound character on what you hear, the headphone amplifier needs enough drive...

    NekoAudio replied to a thread Thinking of .7 or 1.7i in Magnepan
    If you cannot get Magnepans far enough from the rear wall, but still want their sound, another option is to install sound absorption on the wall behind them. This can significantly help tighten up the sound. You'll still get the negative wave that...
