Audeze I-Sine 20 headphones, great on Vacations with Family

Just how easy and awesome is using some I-Sine 20 headphones when you’re driving on a family vacation, or headed on a plane trip?
 

Ed Masterson at Audible images AV Melbourne, Fl talks about Audeze Headphones.

 
Shared by Ed “As most you know I spent most of my time in front of a bigger sound system with speakers and things, but occasionally the need for a good headphone system arises and just coincidentally and just in time for summer and some family travels, vacation stuff….the I-Sine 20, a product from Audeze an awesome set of headphones…they give me that planer magnetic or electrostatic speaker experience… it’s sonically incredible just like it’s a true high-end system, I use it with an iPhone and you know one of the neat features they have is their their iPhone adapter and I use with “Tidal” on my iPhone with high quality streaming…and you know it’s a great experience when the base almost hits you hard…”

Ed Masterson talks about the Cronus Magnum II from Rogue Audio

Ed Masterson talks about the Cronus Magnum II from Rogue Audio.

Shared in Video: “Rogue Audio American-made amplifiers combining the finest tube circuitry with meticulous engineering…Rogue Audio amplifiers an intelligent indulgence…today we’re going to talk a little bit about my newest product line the Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum 2 and I’m pretty excited to be able to bring very high performance at a I’ll call a reasonable price point for those people looking to play music in their house but keep it simple, you know basic stereo…this is a fantastic way to get going you know for a long time people have felt like tubes have an advantage…lower price points… the tubes tend to have an advantage of the mid-range of the high so it’s just it’s kind of hard to let go of if you want to sit back and really enjoy your music and just find yourself melting into the music for hours…
 
you know a nice vacuum tube amplifier is pretty magical and Rogue Audio saw that they they kind of figured that out a few years ago and started making right here in America in Pennsylvania… the Cronus Magnum that was a hundred watts per channel has just driven every pair of speakers I’ve hooked up to it wonderfully without  hesitation so it has broad application…I’m using a blue sound piece right now feeding it for it’s a streamer piece and using a pair of Martin Logan as a whole system together is it’s about six thousand dollars ($2500 for the integrated amp alone) and you know that’s not an inexpensive system… but when you hear what it does it’s it’s pretty spectacular later on we’re gonna bring in a turntable hook it up since it does have a phono stage built into it along with a headphone amp…”

Audible Images AV Melbourne, FL talks about dCS Rossini – Only the Music

As the Newbie to this Hobby/Industry, and as the blogger,  what questions regarding dCS & the Rossini, might one ask for the seasoned Audiophile and for the less informed but High End lover, of this insight from Ed in the video?

Q.   How does this product video help Me,  a Consumer (but not a Geek yet) who definitely likes their Music to sound Incredibly Real and Live performance sounding ?

Q.   What does this mean to an Audiophile fully knowledgeable in audio recording formats and Ultra High End Gear, but have not heard a DAC at this level?

A.    Ed Masterson’s Passion is to design, provide and tune your system to the most Exceptional Sound Quality possible. 

So, If you have an Ultra High End System or are considering one, with for example two Monobloc Amplifiers (left and right speaker separates) and a Ultra High End Preamplifier (volume control & music source receiver if you will),  then what component/s might one use to balance out the rest of your Ultra High End components, for your digital media?

Enjoy the Video!   I just love the Passion…
