I walked into a darkened room at T.H.E. Show Newport earlier this year. I heard music being played...but I didn't see the speakers right away; the room looked empty. And then I saw the little Riva Turbo alone on a small shelf.

What the heck! How is this thing filling the room?

The most modified headphone in the hobby, now modified by its maker. A terrific job, and done in a way virtually impossible for DIYers to achieve, but continues to allow similar modifications as the previous model.

It seems to me hobbyists have an excellent new starting platform for another round of modding!

In an ongoing effort to investigate current source amps I did some initial measurements of the Apogee Grove, which is supposed to be immune from frequency response changes to headphones with varying impedance.

Care to guess whether or not it works?

Mostly an exercise in what InnerFidelity writers would want themselves for Christmas.

Honest journalism at its best!

I spent all day yesterday measuring the two different pads with four filters each of the Torque t402v headphone.

Some things just don't go as expected.

I'd like to believe that neutrality, low-distortion, and excellence in transient response is what leads to a satisfying listening experience.

The HE1000 makes me question that belief.

When I get stopped in my tracks I just need to say something.

Curiostity sometimes gets the better of me and I've got to take a good hard look at something. In this case, the Bakoon HPA-21 current source amplifier, and how it's different than a voltage amplifier.
