I've been testing Tidal again the past few days and I find it hard not to appreciate the improved SQ compared to lossy streaming services. It's not the kind of difference you hear when you go from 128kbps to 320kbps or even 192kbps, but the extra crispiness, deeper base, better instrument separation boderlining on placebo all make for a significant difference -- the kind people around head-fi usually pay good money for.   Problem is, I just cannot get over all the other...
I currently own a Lumia 925, I'm quite happy with its audio-out. I'm on the lookout for a new Android or iOS phone that features good quality audio and a screen that is 5" or smaller.   Another thing, I looked at LeTV One and I like its looks, even though it's quite big. Does anyone know how it stands up to LeTV One Pro which I see being mentioned here a lot, SQ-wise?   Where do you guys get the detailed specs on phone audio chips etc.? These things are rarely...
For some reason the issue seems to be more prevalent in Windows 10. I've been using the new OS since July and it's already happened at least 5 times:\
If this was a heat issue, it'd happen when I'm playing games. It never did. Besides most people are aware they should keep their sound card away from their video card to avoid interference.
DaniloMisura, I'm not noticing any difference between Premium Spotify and Deezer. As for Spotify/Deezer HQ vs CDs/FLACs, well, it's the usual case of 320kbps/v0 vs lossless: sometimes you can hear a difference and sometimes you can't. Did A/B tests with the help of another person.   Vorpax, I disagree. Like I said, according to my ears -- and trust me, I can tell a 128kbps songs from 320kbps ones -- there isn't any difference between the two services. The streamed files...
I don't think this issue is limited to the Essence ST(X) I / II line of cards. Regardless, that reply you got from ASUS is not just disheartening, it's an outright lie. I personally reported this issue directly to ASUS and spoke with people who did so as well; there were many threads on their official support forums (I might've posted some links a few pages back, though they're probably dead now,) where many people reported the same exact issue of random high-pitched...
I probably should've updated the thread, since it's been a while and Deezer seems to have upgraded their entire library to 320kbps since(according to the amount of data that is transferred during streaming). I've actually moved from Spotify to Deezer around 3 months ago, and as far as sound quality goes, I've got no complains.
 Alright, scratch that. It's just extremely rare.
Sorry to hear that, I remember how annoying that is.   There were discussion threads up on the official ASUS forums concerning this issue a long time ago. Not sure if they're still going after all these years. Last I checked, there was no official word on how to fix it.   It's possible that this might not be a driver or even chip specific problem though and something else is at fault here (some mobo/soundcard incompatibility, software configuration). I've seen...
 That's probably it. Unless you did the tests expecting jriver to sound better and it's just placebo. From what I've read, dsound should sound just like WASAPI/ASIO if no streams are being mixed, but that's just theory.
