So I tried using Audirvana on my Macbook Pro but am still hearing 'hiss' within parts of a lot of the music I play.
I'm thinking this might just be due to my current amp (glacier portable amp) which needs to be turned up pretty high to get any kind of volume.
However I'd love to hear from someone about if Music, at the mastering stage, has hiss in it. It's almost as if I'm hearing the mic hiss on some tracks fade in as say the vocals are about to...
"Test load Audirvana software on yur mac...2weeks free trial, U get a cleaner quieter sound off yur lappy." Hi, Sorry but I was wondering if the 'hiss' I hear is within the music. I hear the same thing on different systems.
Does no one else hear this? Like a background hiss on some tracks within a song as they come in / out?
Is this just part of the recording process that I'm now able to hear with good headphones?
All the best,
I’ve owned the T1’s for about a year now, to my ears they sound amazing. Revealing more about a track than anything else I’ve listened to.
During this year I’ve used a portable Glacier AMP / DAC as I was travelling. This little box has done a fine job (again to my ears) but now I’m looking to upgrade to get the most out of the T1’s.
I have a few questions if anyone would be kind enough to spare some time answering.
1. My source is a Macbook Pro, where I...
"It happens the Radiohead is my favorite rock band too ."
They are amazing. I can't wait to Listen to them with a good set of headphones. In that regards I'm hoping the T1's will serve me well. The Glacier with it's DAC is a good deal I think as I'll be listening via my Macbook / Apple Lossless.
Have you ever listened to In Rainbows with the T1's + Glacier? Anything else you'd pick over that setup that would be better?
Very good explanation thanks. For me I listen mostly to Radiohead, Rolling Stones, etc. But also a lot of other areas such as Rap, and Electronic. From what I've read the T1's work the best with tubes so if the v3 doesn't give that tube sound the glacier would make a great amp. If you had to pick one for to listen to Radiohead which would you pick? Thanks, Simon
"But the T1 will run very good with my Apex Glacier OR my RSA Intruder (very hard to decide which one is better from both)."
Interesting, so you'd pick that over the Continental V3? I thought the tube would help the T1's?
Thanks for the feedback, if you had to pick one amp what would it be?
Just wondering is anyone out there has the V3 up and running with any Beyer T1's? I'd love to hear what you think to this combo and what the best way of getting a source to it is.
I have Apple Lossless files on from either my Laptop or iPhone / iPad
Any ideas would be most welcomed as I'm about the pick up a set of T1's and need a good quality amp that's also pretty portable.
Thanks in advance,
After a bit more searching I think I'm going to go with a Nuforce Icon HDP.
Not "portable" but very small. DAC and Amp in one. Seems to get good feedback for the price.
Does anyone know if this will pair up with the T1's well?
