    What setup do people use for their audio?

    Personally, my go to is the Fiio BTR5 2021 Bluetooth DAC (bought mainly for mobiles due to everyone trying to kill the headphone port) and the old trusted Bayerdynamics DT 770 Pros. Simple setup that just gets great results.

    I used to use some Apple Earpods, since Ive had to upgrade phone after nearly 5 years Ive had to switch to Airpods. I like Ear/Airpods, but cant stand the ridiculous prices of Airpods.

    Were you expecting a picture or something?

    FiiO makes some good shit.  
    I use the Q5S TC with my Galaxy S21 Ultra when I'm on the go. I pay for Tidal Hi-Fi so I can get that lossless up to 9216 kbps quality. I choose the USB-C connection rather than the bluetooth option for this. Most of the headphones I use daily have been paired with a 4.4mm balanced cable. The only ones that aren't are connected to my turntable through a AMP with a 6.3mm jack.


    All of my over the ear headphones are Sennheisers. A pair of HD 598 SE and a pair of HD 800 S (both open back). My IEMs are a pair of FiiO FH5s pros that stay at home. And a pair of Shure SE215 pros that I take everywhere.
    I have MANY other pairs but those are my most used.

    I love that Sony has kept the ability to use a 3.5mm jack. Or go bluetooth with their XM series headphones.  And as always Sony and their LDAC codec and ANC rules the roost.

    While i cant get a balanced cable for my DT 770's I do keep considering sending them off to Custom Cans for their custom detachable cable mod...

    Those are pretty good prices for balanced cables.

    I grew up listening to my dad's record collection until I started my own at around 10 years old.
    Now I have over 1,000 and this is my preferred way of listening to music.

    When I'm out of the house or want to listen on my google home I use Spotify.

    Lastly I have an MP3 collection using iTunes at 320kbps quality.

    FLAC is just too big for local storage.

    I use Spotify a lot but i also have a collection of CD's and vinyl, plus MP3's and FLAC on a storage drive.

    i dunno, with the price of storage now, FLAC's are much easier to store now than years ago.
