Sure.

I was by no means implying h1f1add1cted's choice is wrong.

For example in my hi-fi (sort of...) set, I am connecting the old, oops, vingate Onkyo R1 Integra CD Player to the Yulong D200 via optical, and it sounds so much better compared to the integrated dac.

 

I just wanted to know why he chose optical against coaxial and he gave an appropriate answer.

Also, not connecting both cables just to start switching and trying to chase subtle differences, instead on really enjoying music is a wise choice IMO :-)

Yes I never compared both in this setup, for example I use as transport my iBasso DX50 -> coaxial out -> coaxial cable -> coaxial in ->iFi micro iDSD and it sounds pretty awesome too in such a small package.

 

Cheers

They are called Rauna leira :) They are old concrete speakers from 70-80s (correct me if i'm wrong). My dad bought them and turned them in into a local hifishop, and in their turn they swapped filters and the speakers. All in cost of around 500-600bucks and they play in the 2k$ range!

DIY Daphile Server (Intel hardware, SSD with FLAC music collection on) > USB > Gustard U12 > optical Toslink > Schiit Bifrost Uber > analog RCA > iFi audio micro iCAN = head phones.

I use the Android Suqeeze Ctrl app to control my Daphile box, works perfect, great sounding setup.
Are you using bass boost on the ican with the hd800?
post #20226 of 20226

Depends on genre or music but yes I use the bass boost, but only Level 1, that is more than enough. I use mostly the 3D crossfeed on level 2 for classical music.
