Fingers crossed the Sparrow's back on its way

 

Still no word from Audio-gd though

post #437 of 725

pm me for a good deal on a sparrow

post #438 of 725

Your posts really make me laugh. , no offence though.

post #439 of 725

thinking about getting one of these to use with my jh-13s, because i have recently decided to be fiscally responsible and wait a while to get my jh-3a's, but i already sold my protector and dac19mk3. so now im looking for something to use for the 6months to a year. 

 

I saw AVU, you said you're using your sparrow with your 13's, what do you think of it? have you compared it with any other amps?

 

i am really excited to finally be able to try out a ACSS amp though 

post #440 of 725

Just ordered version A with the WM8741. I asked kingwa about the AD1852 since haloxt said that it was more detailed than the WM8740, and he replied that he made it that way on purpose so that users would have option for detailed or warm. But as of July 1st, you can get the WM8740/1 both in the detailed dynamic version. so i went ahead and just got the WM8741. and had him lower the gain to 3dB for the JH-13's, but i asked him if he could put a 1/8th inch jack on the front so i wouldnt need an adaptor, but he said the hole was to big.

 

cant wait to hear my 13's on the ACSS amp.

How do you set it to work in windows xp, via usb? Do i just have to plug the usb cable and headphones to the amp, and it will work?

As a friend of mine just got it, and tried connecting his active speakers to the headphone out (with an adapter from jack to rca), and he says he hears a buzz and no sound.

post #442 of 725

The buzz is probably ground-loop hum.  He might try plugging something into a different power point to see if the buzz goes away.  Also, what kind of input do the active speakers have?

rca

mine works well with my active speakers and i hear no buzz. I use vista and usb. Just plug and play. As for using it to preamp to a dedicated amp, I never tried myself as I don't have a dedicate amp:). But according to their website and Kingwa's email, I'd imagine it will be the same as output it to active speakers.

Is his volume up? Is the plug all the way in? Does it work with headphones?

post #446 of 725

Still not in the post, however, this is nothing to do with Audio-gd. My problem seems to have been escalated to Kingwa, who has confirmed they will cover costs if I sort it out. So, a fair result (next best outcome) in the end, though it's taken some time, or at least to-ing and fro-ing to get there. It will be a relief to finally have it: fingers crossed there are no further issues.

I won't deny it's been a frustrating process but I thought it only fair to redress the balance once the promise of reimbursement was made.

Has anyone compared the fun dac only output to a power amp or active speakers, vs. the sparrow headphone out to a power amp or active speakers? Wich one is better?

Maybe in the future i'll buy a valve amp, and wonder how well the sparrow can be as a dac out via the headphone connector.

If using it with a dedicated amp, I'd say go with the Fun. I never heard the Fun, so I can't comment on the sound, but your setup will look tidier as you can use the RCA output at the back of the Fun.
