    Want to say hello and introduce myself

    I'm a new member. My main hobby...actually my only hobby...is portable audio...earphones, source and amp gear and such...and will be offering my impressions of each model of equipment in my collection as well as any new equipment I acquire. I have alengthy collection from Shure SE530 to iFrogs earphones. And from COWON D2 to everything else...lol

    I love my hobby and what I get out of it, namely stress relieving, high quality music and have an ear for audio quality. I'm not much into the video side of PMPs or DAPs, just the audiophile side of it and am an activist for getting Line Out audio onto DAPs because it is the best way to gain the most out of the quality audio signal through a quality external amp.

    Currently the only DAPs offering LO connection are the iPods in the various forms, Creative Labs Zen Vision in its various models and Sansa View....though the Line Out Cables may be a bit difficult to find for the Sansa and Zens. The iPods, because they are dominant in the portable audio market, are very easy to come by the requisite cable. Those cables cam be very exspensive depending on the vendor. buut there are a few not-too-expensive forms of Line Out Cables or adapters to be had. I currently use an adapter I bought on eBay for $20 and won't post the brand name for fear I'll be presumed a spammer this early in my membership.

    I intend to be her for quite a long time if permitted.

    Hi, welcome to AR and appreciated the recs you gave on my "killer earbud" thread. I haven't bought anything yet still hesitating. I currently use an over the ear Sennheiser PX-200 I think, they are the black ones. I'm not big into music on computer. I use a MP3 player commuting on public transportation out of contempt of today's FM. I wanted music only. I started with a Zen Stone but some wanted more storage. My wife bought me a Sansa 4GB Clip for my birthday which I am using now. I haven't played much with the EQ, just using "normal" mode. I Rip and Sync with WMP at variable bit rate set at the largest file size.

    Excellent. Your wife fixed you up good. That little Clip is compatible with OGG/Vorbis audio format with the latest firmware installed. Using an audio converter/ripper such as dBpoweramp will rip CDs directly to OGG/Vorbis and will allow a much better sounding music experience.

    Add a FiiO portable amp to it and a set of SoundMAGIC PL-30s and you'll have one of the lowest cost audiophile sets arounds.

    Thank you, and to all the rest, for the warm welcome.

    ...permitted? My friend, any headphone junky can stay as long as they want. The portable room needs a kick in the ace! 2leftears and Happy Camper are headphone types as well, nice to meet you, looking forward to draining you of your portable knowledge!
