The HiFiMAN HE-400 An Anti-Philes Dream

The HiFIMAN HE-400 is HiFIMAN's current best seller.  After spending some time in it's company, it was a no brainer as to why.  It is one the only conventionally styled headphone I am aware of, that gives you planar technology without baggage.  By that, I mean you do not need a dedicated amp, or any other headphone accoutrement to get planar performance from your computer or hand-held device.  At $400 (or any price), it's alone in my estimation both in price, sensitivity and the associated tech. The HE-400 will not leave any dyed in the wool audiophile, feeling in the least compromised and in fact they'll be noticeably satisfied, and feeling rather intelligent at how good things can be without...

Beck does Bowie, a new Binaural Experience!!

 Thanks to Chris Connaker and Computer Audiophile for this heads up!!!  One never knows what comes out of an experiment like this...could theatre in the round make another splash? Or be played back in some immersive fashion.  For my part, hearing it through the Metrum HEX, the iFi-iCAN, and the HE-6, was really a lot of fun.  Took the morning Joe for a ride.  It plays best if you watch all of the pre-vids.  If you prefer to go straight to the full 360 version, as opposed to the full linear one at the bottom of the page, just click here:  http://www.hello-again.com/beck360/main/beck360.html

HiFiMan, Sennheiser, iFi e Mia Famiglia

Like a good son, I have my Mother over for dinner on occasion.  Thankfully, there's nothing she likes more than a good glass of wine and a long listening session.  Like most anti-philes, she just wants to hear music.  Music has been the thread of her life.  She has perfect pitch, was singing parts on Broadway before she was 18, (not normal for a girl from Hamilton, Ohio) became a jazz singer in Miami in the 50's, (marrying my pianist Father), and did her most recent recording with Hank Jones, Marc Johnson, and Grady Tate.  Like many close to me, she listens to my prosthelytizing about audio with a certain feigned interest, which becomes a mildly glazed look, and then morphs...

Mark and Daniel, The Maximus-Opal-air4 and StereoDesk

 We're excited at having formed a relationship with Mark and Daniel!!  Very few floorstanders can produce the bass the SX-Woofer is capable of in a monitor.  More importantly is the implementation of the air motion transformers, which produce the majority of the signal, thereby keeping the crossover point out of harms way.   Marble cabinets seal the deal, for an inert accurate speaker that will give you high to low in most any setting.  And do they image!!! Of particular joy to StereoDesk is the Maximus-Opal-Air4.  In a joint venture with NuForce, Mark and Daniel has created an active streaming speaker, using NuForce's proprietary streaming technology which shreds wifi.  All the bits are in place as you can stream digital...
