You guys are the funny ones for believing all this crap!


You're funny because instead of just leaving the hobby, you choose to waste your time coming to this website where no one is paying your thoughts any attention.

You would have to use either ASIO4ALL, USB-audio (not free), KS, or WASAPI to try to get bit-perfect output into the sparrow. The simplest is to use Kernal Streaming plug-in with foobar 1.0. I think it does make a good difference, and it's not that hard to bypass the windows kmixer.

I guess all the actual electronic measurements showing differences between DAPs and other gear are all crap too?  Just face it, that your hearing is not good (and you proved it yourself!) and stop blaming other people for it. You've saved yourself a lot money and you should be happy. Claiming that what affects you applies to everyone else, however, is very much a lie closer to your idea of "crap".

Do not buy the Sparrow.  It will not sound any different than your ipod.


I'm fairly sure it will, given I don't have an ipod

 

I've also just thrown more money away on the ALPS27 upgrade. Apparently the response is more suited to audio applications (logarithmic?) and I decided that for a $10 part, I may as well reduce potential channel imbalance. It may not have been a problem but I had no way to know.

ROFL my hearing isnt good! haha

More excuses from the golden ears audiophooles.  You guys will use ANYTHING  to justify your wasted expenses on audio.  Besides, its pretty common knowledge that audiophile myths are false.  Wake up.  I know many of you disagree with everything I say.  But alot of newer people are prolly wondering what all this is about.  I am trying to save their Wallets and time. Spread the truth. ;)

What is this official thread for?! Can we focus on discussion related to the Sparrow? Please.
post #416 of 725

Just report his posts using the orange flag if you feel they are just trolling.

post #417 of 725

Heh, Crazy*Carl's post slagging me off seems to have been edited/deleted. Well, Carl, clearly you missed the irony, or maybe you just wanted to reiterate your point.

 

Without wishing to derail the thread further, I'd like to thank Crazy*Carl for his reviews and insights, which I'm sure have been useful advice to some, but remind him that people have their own reasons for, and requirements from, purchases and, as it is a hobby, may simply wish to make up their own minds. For instance, an ipod is not necessarily a cheaper or more suitable solution for everyone. It is good to read down-to-earth comments about equipment (please continue OTHER reviews) but not unsolicited disparaging posts ad nauseum, it is not a crusade.

post #418 of 725

Truth = trolling on Head-fi.  After all, it is a big forum designed to advertise equipment, and I am reducing that capital.  Just look at the number of advertisements, especially with the "new" head-fi.  And boy does it work!

 

I just find it funny, that I am the one person who did blind tests with the sparrow. I even got this thread renamed.  Everyone elses reviews of the sparrow are just based of what they think they hear.  So I am the Troll?

 

I know my posts are working somewhat.  I have had my Sparrow posted for 2 months and still no one has bought it.  I have had several people show interest, but they bailed.

I don't think people think you are lying. They are angry that you are saying that ALL amps/dacs have the same results for ALL headphones. You have not proven that at all. So more than anything, people think you are a troll for acting like you have proof that this is all a scam, when you really don't have much to go off of. You'll notice Prog Rock Man hasn't gotten near the flack that you have, because he has his own thread with many more examples. You act like you just want to piss people off.

 

And congratulations on not selling your amp?  Glad to see you are reaping the benefits of all of your arguing.
