Naim DAC-V1 review

By | May 28th, 2013|Categories: DAC - Headmania|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Hey guys,

I’ve been waiting for a few months now to write this review. The first time I have seen that  Naim will release a headphone dac/amp/preamplifier combo I was really really intrigued and curious.

I’ve been bothering the guys from Jack for over 2 months now: “Did it come? Did it come?”

Well finally it came, and here it is on the review bench, and I must say it looks just awesome!

The build quality and the design really impressed me.… Read the full article

Audiobyte Hydra: High-End USB interface

By | May 26th, 2013|Categories: DAC - Headmania|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Hey guys,

I have heard for a while now, of a Romanian company that supposedly produces some very good audio gear.

Never had the chance to hear one of their products until recently.

The company I am talking about is Audiobyte. The owner, and main engineer is Nucu Jitariu. I have heard of him from Sandu during the last few years. From what I have heard, he is a legend throughout the audiophile society in Romania.

It has come to my attention that Nucu worked with some very popular audio companies like PS Audio, Wadia, MSB, Goldmund.… Read the full article

For whom we make audio

This is my first blog entry and I think a good place to start is a question: for whom do we make audio equipment? You might think we make it for audiophiles, but that is not the case.

In the past we have done two audio shows, although I’ve helped friends on a number of others. In the US, these audio shows are held in hotels, and the exhibitors set up their equipment in rooms emptied of their beds and furniture.… Read the full article

The King of Musicality: Audeze LCD3

By | May 16th, 2013|Categories: Headphones - Headmania|Tags: , , , , , |

Hey guys,

As you may have read a few weeks ago, I have re-auditioned the Audeze LCD3 and I have been very impressed.

I had to get the HD800 to really understand the LCD3 . First time I have heard it, it impressed me, but I did not think it to be that much above LCD2. 

In the last month with HD800 and LCD2 I found myself listening a little more to the sennheisers. LCD2 seemed to lack in dynamics, details and soundstage compared to  HD800.… Read the full article

The Little Black Box: Arcam rPac

By | May 2nd, 2013|Categories: DAC - Headmania|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Hey guys,

I have seen this little box recently and it intrigued me a lot. It has an impressive build quality.

Arcam rPac

It has a very thick aluminum case and it feels like a tank can get over it and wouldn’t hurt it.

Ok…Now I am curios..would it hurt it? Why am I thinking of this?

Because of this crazy video(where they run a tank over a 5000EUR dac, chord qbd76) :

Hmm…All i need now is a tank… Does anybody know a guy…with a tank?… Read the full article
