Re: Streaming service

I can’t hear differences

Jazz is easier to reproduce.

May you add 2 clips with pop or rock?

Reissues are the only way.

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

After decades with open headphones, in the last years I found that closed headphones have a more neutral (and musical) sound signature. Plus, thery are a lot less expensive!

In fact, closed headphones are tipically used for mixing/mastering.

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

Sorry

I hate the K701 and generally am not a huge fan of open-back headphones
(a part from the iconic Grado HP2).

Then we are in agreement. What a groove on some of those songs! I have tuned a LOT of circuits with the help of that record.

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

It's a refined version of the K92 (the queen of the bargain at 45€), more musical, with better isolation, comfortability and more accessories.

Re: Streaming service

Haven't listened yet, but will do... One thought: is it possible to stream Spotify directly to the DS, rather than Airplay'd, to make it a fair 'fight'? Or Airplay each in turn to change only the stream service? (assuming the same recording) IME, Spotify sounds best with the desktop app on a wired ...

Re: Latest records to enter your collection

Matteo, do yourself a favour and buy some originals instead of the reissues. You'll be positively surprised! Crazy prices, high shipping costs and a lot of VG+ or NM that are unlistenable (this is my very bad experience in the last months on Discogs). I will never buy an used LP in my whole life. M.

I’will give a try to this using the 3,5 input of the ADSM (that I rate very good):

Yesterday I tried this splitter.

The sound detrimental is limited, but one input sounds different from the other.

Re: Giella headphone amp

I wouldn't be sure about the jack splitter impact. Connectors and adaptors are mysterious; some simply sound good while others do more damage than I think is reasonable, given how simple the part is. When developing Giella, I bought many 6.35 and 3.5 mm jacks. Then I listened to all of them and sel...
