HiFiMan HE1000SE Launches - AVSA Latest News & Reviews

HiFiMAN adds SE version to HE1000 line-up Personal stereo specialists HiFiMAN has extended its HE1000 headphone offering with a new SE version.

Soekris DAC-1101 - Headfi.org Review

The ReviewComparisons among good DACs is the audiophile equivalent of wine tasting, where choices are often made based on personal preferences.

Opus#3 DAP - Headphonics Review

Posted by Yisroel Davimes on

THE OPUS#3 BY THE BIT   Sound Impressions Tonality & Presentation Opus#3 has a very similar tonal quality and presentation to the Opus#1 though it has a few small tweaks that place it above the Opus#1. The first is the level of lower treble energy and clarity which is greater in the Opus#3. Percussion is just that little bit more dynamic, slightly brighter and with more bite. Vocal work again is organic and natural sounding but in keeping with that higher level of clarity there does seem to be a bit of a cleaner edge and a hair breath more...
