My GO 450 has been dead-silent with all the headphones I have tried it with (DT770 32 LE, PFE112, SH215), no hint of hiss or background noise whatsoever. My uneducated here is that it might be highly dependent on the USB connection, and whether it is "natively" noisy or not. If it is noisy indead, then something like the Wyrd makes sense.
I couldn't agree more, Foobar sounds very dull after a session with Bug Head. I still cant figure out how the filters (or the software in general) are affecting the output, but the result is outstanding. Currently using Banana1 x4, everything is more energetic, bass is tight as can be, soundstage is more open... Music has never been as engaging. I can only urge people to try it out.
After running into the same problem, I uninstalled the DSDIFF component (it actually transcodes to PCM) and let the SACD component do the work (set up using the pdf guide Michael linked). No problem anymore, DSD is played as DSD (ie blue light on on your GO).
David Bowie . Five Years (from Bowie at the BEEB CD 2) Best lyrics, bass line, melody... ever.
Downloaded the 3.00 version for a try, and man, I must say I am impressed. SQ is amazing even with basic settings ( I don't have ASIO drivers for my DAC...yet, and only 6gb of ram), much more engaging and detailed than foobar. Just had a quick listen and might be getting carried away a bit, but WOW. Definitely worth a try, even if the UI is...um... Thanks for the heads up!

Hi all, I just got my hands on Phonak PFE111, and loving them so far. I am wondering whether these would benefit from amping, particularly on my laptop.  I've been using headphone out on my Vaio Z, and while it sounds OK, I have to crank up the volume at times.   On the DAP side, the buds pair well with iHP-120, but again, some input on amping and whether it helps with sound quality would be very welcome. I've been looking at ibasso D-Zero, sounds great, but...

New to head fi, and glad to have taken advice from the Audeo PFE thread as I got a pair of PFE 111 at a great price. I absolutely love them so far, particularly with grey filters + slight bast boost in EasyQ. Now my question: do these benefit from amping? I mostly listen to music on my laptop, and am considering a DAC/amp like the ibasso D-Zero if it brings a significant improvement on the already great sound quality.
