What makes you think it's due to the upsampling? My guess is it's probably just a difference in quality between your soundcard's DAC and your upsampling one, but without knowing what DAC and soundcard you're talking about, I can't really back that up.

I've done it here on head-fi 3-4 times since August because we're a tighter community, but I don't on eBay. I've been ripped off a few times, not anymore. Yeah, it can be iffy sometimes. I shipped a bass guitar to a guy in Canada one...

Retail is $399, but some audiologists will discount them because as one of them once told me, "we make our money on hearing aids, and you'll be back" When is the 3 coming out? Would you say it is definitely 'better' than the E500, or is it... Follow the first couple steps on there, and then unscrew the plastic thing if you want to get at the driver.
Where? I can't seem to find them... what's the seller's name? edit: nevermind I see it
Anyone know if bobsound1 still has any e500s left?

Then there is the Apache (around $3000), the B-52 (around $5000), and other rudistor amps over $2000. balanced amps, unfortunately, are not cheap. How do you like the sound...

I think the word 'audiophile' by itself is enough to imply that we're somewhat lacking in the sanity department.
