Is that the one that MyBroadband use?  Ok, but a bit strange with new messages.  At least Small Machines Forum s/ware is free.  I think the many add-ons interfere with proper operation.

I suggested Discourse a few years back and it looked like we might move in that direction, but it's up to the man that foots the bill.


How big is the software bill? I for one would be prepared to part sponsor as a commercial member and am sure I am not alone.

Headphones / Re: HD800 DAC/Amp Recommendations
« Last post by Hi-Phibian on Today at 05:58:00 PM »
I probably don't want to admit it and perhaps I haven't been aware but above is probably quite true.  When I am in the mood for what the 800 does nothing will do the same but it's not the only headphone I gravitate towards.  That said I wouldn't give them up for my Hifi man 4xx, DT880 or Stax.  If you want to avoid a merry go round of gear trying to listen is always the best advice.  The only real review or peer feedback that counts is IMO from reviewers whom have liked product you have owned or tried properly and found you like them too in the same way.  Peers with whom you have listened to stuff and whose tastes you have got to know are also worthwhile.  The rest is tricky.

Headphones / Re: HD800 DAC/Amp Recommendations

@kamikazi makes a good point. The HD800 can be a polarizing headphone and certainly isnít for everyone. While is probably one of the most revealing and detailed headphones with probably the largest soundstage of any headphone, it can also be overly analytical and - no matter the front end - the bass will never get to LCD levels. You need to decide if you can live with its strengths and shortcomings, and go from there. Many people have the HD800 as part of a 2-3 headphone setup that fills in the gaps where the others fall short. That could also be an option, and itís then worth finding a good amp and dac that suits each headphone equally. Good luck.

Are these basically an LS55 with 3x bass drivers added?

It really is archaic .....
I get an email notification about a new post in "for sale" two days after it was posted.
It's like Groundhog Day.

The spec is a bit vague

What frequencies does the USB input handle?

It does 24-bit/192KHz across both USB and SPDIF inputs. I'll see if I can post a screenshot, but I've closed my regular account for storing images as they got taken over by another service with some licensing terms that I did not like.
