The Talos By Cascadia Audio

The T50RP, perhaps the most modded planar headphone in the history of modding. People have gone beyond modding now and created businesses behind them like ZMF, Enigma, and MrSpeakers. Dan's team have gone from ...

The Shift By Peachtree Audio

"Made in Canada". Nothing feels quite as satisfying as a 'home run' in terms of engineering capability being done right in your backyard. Peachtree is sort of on the comeback trail after a few years that culmin...

The FSM-02 V2 By Lear

The FMS-02 V2 portable amp from Lear has been out for quite some time, 3 years to be exact. However, given the MSRP has dropped by over HK$1000 to a very enticing HK$1,998 and Lear has very kindly sent me a sam...
