I used 2 ipod touches here just to show that i use 2 apps to control my music (obviously u only need 1). The apple remote app and the onkyo app. I usually use the "direct mode" for HP use but you can see you can adjust basic eq and surround options from one of the onkyo menu's.

I simply use the hp out on the reciever, nuthing fancy. To me the dual burr browns in this thing and their hp amp sound amazing so im happy for now. Fiio e10 on top gets no use. The ipod classic hooks direct to the reciever bypassing apple dac but for some reason you cant use usb and headphone out at the same time. Its ok works better to have apple remote and listen to all my alac files from the pc.

Excuse my typing. Did this on my ipad. beyersmile.png
Which model onkyo is that?
I should look into those for the headphone SQ alone considering my Pioneer has channel imbalance issues :/
Also, may I ask if you own a PS3? I did have an onkyo a couple years ago, but the video DAC it used caused trouble with PS3s...

It is the TX-NR509. I got it refurbished from accessoriesforless.com. They are the only authorized refurb dealer for onkyo if you check the onkyo site. The newest version of this reciever is the TX-NR414 I believe. The specs are virtually identical so I chose to go with the 509 and save a few bucks.

I don't have PS3 but I'll bet it would work. The last sony I had was glitchy on the hdmi pass through of my computer to my monitor because my monitor is not 1080 it is a 1920X1200. But the onkyo handles it seamlessly. Not a single problem with the higher resolution.

Hope that helps.

I believe I had the 307 or 308, I'm assuming they fixed it then with their latest batch of receivers...

im having an issue with my Vsx-920k right now where if I reboot my PC hooked up to it, it will change black to green and white to pink...

thanks for the site as well.

How epic would it be if someone could use an actual CD/vinyl jukebox as their transport :O

I've been wanting to get another Jukebox lately but all the iPod based ones apparently suck. frown.gif

Yea you won't have that problem with the model I have. Listening to mine right now with my DT990s....

On the subject, here is an interesting thread on their high end line. This doesn't have HDMI and home stereo type functions but has novel things called "knobs" on the front and "audiophile grade" capacitors and components inside. Dacs are top tier. Won't be good with your ps3 but will be a hell of a headphone/stereo desk setup.

Last one here just shows some of the lighting I have going on. The picture makes it look harsh but it's very soothing in person.

Aren't you worried about over stretching your headphones like that? blink.gif

47 laboratory, nice!  They make a great DAC as well.

Originally yes, but the clamp force was high so I decided to stretch them out a bit. They still clamp just fine with having them stretched out as such. I don't see it as any different than having the headphones on all the time. The Ultrasone bands are also pretty flexible and durable so if I really needed to, I could increase the clamping force if they were to ever get too stretch out wink.gif

Wasn't sure what that stuff was and now that you've answered my question...their entire line seems fairly reasonable. Wonder where I can hear some...

I Am planning to get a Headphone stand Either audio technica Glastand (will Denon D5000 be too heavy for them?)  or something else maybe from Zoppapro

For now my only solution is this  (as i dont want to harm my Alienware screen by hanging them on it)

 

The ideal solution would be a round swing stand that could take 3 headphones but need somewhere to buy one
