• Monolith Cavalli Liquid Spark Review

    October 12, 2018 Luckbad 0

    When I heard that Alex Cavalli was ready for retirement, I was sad. My favorite all-around amp of all time is the Cavalli Liquid Crimson. I’d heard rumors of a compact Liquid Spark and balanced variant of the Liquid Crimson that came to be known as the Liquid Platinum. I was tremendously excited to see […]

  • Flexound HUMU Review

    June 29, 2018 Luckbad 1

    I had the chance to experience an extended test of the HUMU Augmented Audio Cushion. Yes, it is indeed an audio pillow. I thought the concept was strange as well. That is, until I tried it. Bear with me, as it’s not the easiest product to explain. I recommend watching a video or two before […]

  • RME ADI-2 DAC Review

    January 27, 2018 Luckbad 3

    After attracting the attention of the audiophile community with the ADI-2 Pro, RME set its sights on us once again with the new ADI-2 DAC. It does away with the analog-to-digital conversion that was part of the Pro unit while providing quite a few feature enhancements targeted specifically at music lovers. Some of the audiophile-focused […]

  • Schiit Gungnir Multibit Review

    January 7, 2018 Luckbad 1

    The Schiit Gungnir Multibit has been around for a couple of years now. It is often recommended as the DAC to get in the $1000 price range. I’ve heard it a few times in unfamiliar setups and found it to be quite good in those situations, but I’ve long awaited the opportunity to try it out in […]

    January 1, 2018 Luckbad 2

    The Audeze LCD2 Classics (aka LCD2C) are a love letter to the original LCD2 headphones that put Audeze on the map in 2009. They were recently introduced with a special holiday price of $599 and an MSRP of $799. Since its release in 2009, our original LCD2 headphone has been an industry favorite amongst passionate […]

  • Focal Clear Review

    December 31, 2017 Luckbad 0

    The Focal Clear headphones are a new $1500 open back offering designed and developed in France. They look absolutely stunning! I had an opportunity to take these home and demo them for several days. Rather than a compiled retrospective review, I decided to present stream of consciousness impressions. This will reveal the journey I took […]

  • Brainwavz HM2, BLU-200, and B200

    June 11, 2017 Luckbad 0

    It’s been a long time since my last review here at Basshead.Club. Real life and work cut out my ability to properly maintain the site and even listen to music nearly as much as I’d like. That being said, it’s time to start catching up. Here, we have a trio from Brainwavz, a company that […]

  • Holo Audio – Spring DAC – Level 3 – “Kitsune Tuned Edition”

    November 13, 2016 Luckbad 0

    I recently received a Holo Spring Kitsune Tuned Edition digital-to-analog converter on loan to demo and review. It’s a modern DAC with patented R-2R technology. It’s the first discrete DAC that has linear compensation. It uses a dual R-2R network for PCM and a dual R-2R network for DSD. The technology involved made this intriguing to me, […]

  • MHDT Labs Pagoda, Stockholm, Atlantis, Canary, and Orchid

    August 21, 2016 Luckbad 2

    It’s no secret that I’ve become a huge fan of MHDT Labs. They make non-oversampling R-2R tube DACs with no digital, op-amp, or feedback, and they’re all gorgeous to listen to. I’ve had the privilege of owning several and having extended sessions with others, and I decided to put together a previously-unpublished comparison of the […]

    August 14, 2016 Luckbad 0

    One of the most talked about headphone releases of 2015, the AudioQuest Nighthawk has gained a legion of adoring fans and a mob of antagonists. What makes this headphone so controversial? I spent months with the AudioQuest Nighthawk to find out. In the Box Headphones Two detachable cables (one hi-fi cable, the other slimmer and […]
