also detachable is important to know.

if the cable was the same quality but hardwired, you wouldn't be happy now would ya?

Audeze didn't give me a balanced LCD-2 cable for free. Lol.

I guess if you theorhetically ripped a vinyl to FLAC at that bitrate it'd work, but that would require so much work you might as well just get a phono stage and run your cans from your headphone amp as-is lol.

Is that correct?

 

Some people do not like the way the ES9018 sounds. It comes off as "digital" and I've heard it being described as "glassy". The thing is, there is so much that could go right or wrong from the PSU to your output jacks on a DAC that I don't know if a DAC chip specifically sets the tone by itself. That being said yes I've had the Sparrow and FUN back in the day and I can agree with 8741 being warm.

The LCD 3 gets both cables.  See below.   That's why I had to buy the 4 pin XLR cable when I bought my  Mjolnir .   The cable is not a "joke" or "cheap".  It's what's provided with the lcd's and it's good enough until I decided to upgrade to something that looks like a boat anchor chain and adds even more unsprung weight to the HP's.  Yikes, they weight enough already and thats probably why Audeze used the slim wire design.   Anyway, lets get back to the original purpose of this thread shall we, please.

That really depends on how its built around the ES9018. My experience with sabre chips are nowhere near "digital" sounding.

I find Sabre chips overrated. At the end of the day it's all about how the IC is implemented in the circuit.
