I'm thinking about buying the GD FUN Version A with the AD1852, DIR9001 and FET output buffers.  Two questions...   1.) How will this sound with Grado SR80, Sennheiser HD595, and Denon AH-D7000?   2.) How easy is it to swap out OPAMPs on this thing?  I have some old LM4562NA sitting around in my old X-Meridian sound card I wouldn't mind plugging in.  Are they socket based or what?  I don't see it clear cut in the pictures...   Thanks!
bump...no input?  I'm sort of leaning towards the Audio GD Fun at the moment with AD1852 DIR9001 put in over stock...thoughts?
I've been searching the forums for the past hour and I'm really having a hard time deciding between these two.  Both are similarly priced ($400ish USD) and both offer the combo of USB soundcard with a DAC and AMP.  I'm reading that the DAC is better in the Nuforce but the AMP isn't the greatest.  Then I'm hearing the exact opposite with the FUN (great AMP...decent DAC).  Correct me if I'm wrong but the Icon can do 24bit/96Khz out the USB but the FUN cannot right?  Is...
if you get someone else to bite then by all means give it to them but if you're willing to negotiate down I'll take it off your hands. I'm patient and I know this can will go down in price again. I can get it new right now for $750 which is higher than what most paid for it and with $620+shipping+paypal I might as well just spend the extra $100 and know it's new and warrantied. So yea, good luck and if you want to negotiate lower I'll take it! They look nice but not...

There are some units that will have better quality depending on what card your using in comparison. Forte? I thought you were using a XM. Just for sake of conversation, this receiver your using now is new right? Your last receiver, had a DAC of lower quality then your XM...correct? You were using analog for best sound...
I had this problem with mine too once and I just put a blow dryer on cold air and placed it right on top of the driver and turned it on for about 15 seconds. Problem fixed. It's a fine piece of hair on the driver (a.k.a. grattle). Google it.
My work PC is just a custom build Core i5 nothing fancy. Here's my HTPC and setup. I got a video of it in action if anyone's interested. The recent edition
MY BAD on the wrong forum I wasn't looking when I posted it!!! Moderator feel free to move it. Anyways...with regards to the $550 as of yesterday I saw them HERE. This company looks shady eh? How about this one? I never heard of either and I'm kinda reluctant to drop that kind of cash to a site like these than to an Amazon, J&R, newegg, etc. Quote: Originally Posted by angle_sh00ter They can be got for $550 as of yesterday when I...
