  2. Here's my review of the Nighthawk, and this time in a nicely-formatted pasteup. I cover the solidly good points as well as any objections I found in other reviews. Audioquest Nighthawk Stereo Headphone – Audiophile Review
  3. Had an interesting experience recently that I thought I'd share. As I reported in an earlier post, I've been ripping a lot of CDs lately, one at a time, and having a rough time of it: Many errors that required repeated passes and slowed things down a lot. Some--maybe 1 in 4 CDs--started ripping frame by frame, which takes forever. This was mainly with an LG ripper/writer that's rated for pretty high speed. (See my earlier post.) Someone here suggested the power supply might be causing this, and this gave me an idea. I had an Audioquest Jitterbug lying around. For those who aren't familiar with it, it's a passive USB-treatment device that you plug into your computer; it receives the USB cable. It conditions the USB's 5V supply and the data channels. Many have reported that it makes the music sound better. My external USB drive uses external power, but I thought I'd try it anyway, since it would at least be able to condition the data lines. By the time I thought to try this, I wasn't far from finished. But the effect on ripping was dramatic. I ripped more than 100 CDs with the jitterbug (after ripping hundreds without). I went from having an error with every third of fourth CD to NO ERRORS on the final 100 or so CDs. None. The process went much faster. This tells me two things: Despite what skeptics have claimed, the Jitterbug actually does something. It's not snake oil. (Whether it improves the sound I cannot say, since I haven't yet tried it for this, its intended application, although people I know and whose ears I trust report improvement, and I believe them.) Anyway, it apparently cleans up the voltage levels sufficiently to eliminate errors when ripping with a cheap (although not the cheapest; I paid more than $50), crappy USB drive. If you're ripping CDs and its going slow, give the Jitterbug a try. Jim
  4. Pros: Compactness, sound quality, no need to charge Cons: Could not found any This is really a must buy for an iPhone owner who likes to listen high quality music on iPhone. I am using it with my iPhone 7 Plus and the sound quality it improves will surely blow your mind. I know it is not that good like Chord Mojo and I am also owner of Mojo too but on the go it is very hard to manage it when DF Black will give you full flexibility because of it's compactness and it is really very pocket friendly in terms of pricing. Go for it. I also uploaded a small unboxing video on youtube. You can watch it here: Thanks...
  5. Well I've seen the ads in Stereophile over the last months and curious how it sounds. I placed a preorder for it over at musicdirect and should arrive in mid June. I plan on using it with headphones on my MacBook Air at home and when I travel. From their site: Features: 64-position analog volume control Accepts music files up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution Asynchronous Class 1 USB data transfer using the Streamlength™ protocol Direct-coupled circuitry from the ESS Sabre DAC chip through the analog volume control and output analog driver section Dual Master Clocks are used to minimize the amount of jitter present in the DAC circuitry $249.00 I know there are plenty of other options out there but do like the fact that it is so small and portable. Anyone else curious how this will sound? Thanks, Derrick
  6. Which DAC should I use while not having AudioQuest DragonFly 1.2? Hifimediy Async DAC or EMU 0202 USB? Have Alesis Elevate 6 (Passive), and T.Amp S-75 MK2 (75Watts on 4ohm and 45Watts on 8ohm) And some cheap Superlux HD-330 Headphones (and have ART HeadAmp 4) I am going to purchase AudioQuest DragonFly 1.2 later on
