I’m looking for a small dac/preamp/headphone amp to replace my Audinst mx-1. I switched to Windows 8.1 and the drivers do not enable the properties tab where you disable sound “enchancements.” So, I need a small usb or optical dac that also has a headphone amp and variable rca outs. When I say small I mean smaller than a Benchmark Dac1, smaller than a Schiit Asgard. You don’t notice it’s there kind of small. The Fostex A4 looks the part but reviews aren’t exactly glowing....
 I have this as well. What could possibly be the problem with crossing the street? It makes no sense.
After a few days of use I've decided that while I'm not exactly thrilled with the bass, everything else is pretty sweet and I'll probably keep them. There's just too much bass and it's not tight. I think the looseness of the bass accentuates the actual boost in an unflattering way. I  eq'ed the bass down a bit which tightened things up.  I can deal with the bass issue but there's one problem that might make me return these.

Headphone.com (HeadRoom) will give you 20% off any item they sell (hello there LCD-3) if you send them a broken pair of Beats.

edit - I can't edit the title? oops.   edit 2 - I solved the problem. I did actually save the folder I needed, just in an out of the way spot.   My girlfriend has a massive, meticulously customized and curated iTunes library on our shared desktop. It’s pretty much one of her prized possessions. I recently reinstalled Windows and wiped the drive, and didn't copy the correct files to successfully open up her existing library in a new iTunes install. I copied the library...
I have a Galaxy S5.
My rig is below. GTX 780 and watercooling in the MiniITX box (with a printer stacked on top because gf) under my desk.     and I have optical running over to my Dynaudio x34s and Revel B112. Too much speaker for the space? Yup. Just the way I like it. Compromises had to be made regarding the size of the media center between my speakers...  
 Aaaaaand that did it. Yikes. edit - Also want to mention that these sound a lot better from my pc than my phone.
I can't get the Momentum to connect to my pc with Bluetooth. My motherboard has Bluetooth 4.0 and can connect to my Roku just fine, but it doesn't see the headphones as a device. I feel like I've tried everything. Is there some trick I'm missing?
