Smit Patel over on Headphonics has reviewed the updated Magni 2U & Modi 2U. It is a nice and thorough review.
Once you build your audiophile setup you need a place to sit and enjoy it. The “chair”. Others might laugh but the chair can be nearly as important as some elements of your audio stack. Who can sit and listen to blissful music while being uncomfortable in a hot and awkward chair? Michael Piskor over at Headfonics posted an article around finding the perfect chair. I use an old well worn and extremely comfortable reclining Murphy chair myself. My rule of thumb is if you can sit in the chair for at least an hour and still be comfortable and cool then you likely have found your audiophile chair. Falling asleep in the chair is also a good indicator 🙂
Enjoy the read.
Marcusd over at Headfonics has reviewed the new Oppo PM-3. I recently heard it and it was very nice. Unfortunately, my ears found them uncomfortable. My wallet was happy about this 😉
ALO is getting into the IEM market with their new Campfire Audio brand. Here is a review of their two new IEMs: the single BA Orion, single dynamic Lyra and quad BA Jupiter. Although nearly twice the price of the neutral/flat Noble 4 the reviewer found the Lyra to be far more musical and engaging. The reviewer also compares it against the IE800 and the C6IEM.
