Anyone here an audiophile?

Recommended Posts

I would like to be buds with some fellow audiophiles and ask for some recommendations for some gear if anyone is down to reply. Right now I'm looking around for a portable headphone amp, I have a set of Campfire Audio Cascades (which why the way are fucking AMAZING and I highly recommend) unfortunately they have a lightly higher than average impedance/amp requirement (38 instead of 32). I know it doesn't seem like a lot but I can feel the lack of power in them sometimes and I know they would really shine if I have a dope amp to drive em. So far I've been eyeing peachtrees portable amp but sadly it was discontinued. I know Fiio also have some decent amps for a reasonable price. Of course the dream is a Mojo Chord but I'm a student and broke as hell so I shall just dream about that one. 

 

I also am looking to replace my Shure SE535's I got them like 3 years ago and they're wonderful but I know there's better stuff out there and I would like to upgrade. So far I love the Noble Sweet Dulce's and I am also eyeing Campfire Audio's impressive IEM selection. Though I know there's a lot of wonderful stuff on massdrop as well and while I want all of the things they are in America and I really don't want to pay customs/duty. 

Also I'm always looking for music recommendations! I love any music that's got meaning, wonderful instrumentals/good rhythm/ beat, and is unique. I am also totally willing to exchange music/artist suggestions if anyone wants to! 

Thanks for reading this super long post!

hi @SSD
I usually listen to lossless music. mostly use this formats for lossless 24bit 96khz flac, 24bit 192khz flac, ape, alac,dts, dvd audio, sacd, dsd.
I recomment you to get Fiio e17 portable amp/dac its a 24bit 96khz amp/dac with good build quality & nice sound quality
feel free to reply
regards

I actually have a dac built into my mp3 player it's a sony  nw-wm1Z (another gift i was incredibly lucky to get) and it's stellar, so thankfully i only have to worry about an amp. Thank you for the fiio recommendation! I too try to only have flac files, though i suppose it's not always possible so i try to get 256 or 320 kbps files. Do you have any trouble getting into the technical side of being an audiophile? Sometimes I find my eyes glazing over lol

there is no trouble in technical side of being an audiophile for me. I do really enjoy it. I adapt & update my knowledge about high-end audio equipment every day. get a pair of studio monitors from yamaha focal to feel the difference.

Respect, I find it's a bit tedious when I look into diy and repair things especially. When did you get into the audiophile life? And to be honest, though it's all tedious to me sometimes, I find myself knowing more every time I delve into the literature. Do you have a preference for what type of audio setup you prefer? I have a lot of vinyl loving friends, but I personally enjoy the ability to listen to music as I involve myself in day to day tasks and the vinyl life is just too much upkeep.

if you wanna buy new gear feel free to pm me for recommendation. I recommend schitt dac transistor amp & little dot tube amp mkiii. If I  were you I dont invest on portable amp first of all get desktop amp the desktop ones got the real power & sound quality for the same price
