The famous "patrick82" back! lol
Audiophilleo do already this for many years.In final, it's solve nothing. What is in from of it still matter.
You are far from bit perfect with hq player because it done a lot of digital filter on the numeric part. If you want smear the bits, just use room correction, at least this will give you something useful.btw, the difference between hq player and jriver with fidelizer in paranoid mode is very small and not worth loosing the jriver functionality at all.
How about plug your idsd into your gold amplifier or into your speakers setup to know exactly what give direst stream vs I dsd as a dac? The advantage to I dsd is the battery. Ac cord change the sound and we never sure we have the most efficient ac cord for our setup. Price have no role in the sound quality for ac cord.
You should try ifi usb power.   laptop -> usb -> ifi usb-> USB 1 to purepower using the usb out (5volts only) and the USB2 port of the ifi to the audiophilleo.     If you going 2 usb cable route, keep your best usb for the audiophilleo. If you don't know ... no need to connect the usb cable to the purepower unless you want to recharge it.
As stand alone dac (plugged directed to poweramp) how this dac stand ?   Better than 1500$ mytek ? Better than Audio-gd M7 2000$ ? Better than ps -audio DS 6000$ ?   Why not ? I see people using the nano on a very hi-fi system ... he was using high level dac / preamp and remplaced them with a simple nano! I don't know if he have ears or not ... this is another story! ;-)   I just wait the regular version to be able to buy and have the opportunity to return if it's...
This will drain juice from the battery, change to 70 percent, drain the battery , charge to 70 percent ?
To avoid "warm-up", any manner to let the unit ON 24/24 and not take juice from the battery ?   The "perfection" for me is a switch to take power from usb or the battery. This way, permit me to listening music from usb power when not doing critical listening or simply to keep the unit ready.
Optical use a noisy optical decoding chip. You have no clue if the result will be noisier or not. Generally, optical is considered as the worst manner to link a dac. Coax is better generally. Coax cable matter a lot ... And optical cable don't all give the same sound ... It's very difficult to consider opinions while too much possibility. You can conclude optical is better because you don't have a good coax and same in the other side.
Ap1 and ap2 are supposed to sound similar. Ap1 upgraded for pure power can't work without the battery pure power. Buy pp before a ifi USB or better USB cable. Buy a better USB cable before ifi USB. With all that, software still have a big impact on the sound. So the filtration, buffer, reclock and isolation are not perfect and the better the source, the better the output. Enjoy the world of audio.
