Thanks a lot dude. From what you're saying, looks like we have some common in term of taste with the HD 650. I'll think when the essence one is available at my country, I'll buy it. Right now I'm still using some china-made value class DAC/AMP (Topping D2, in case if you ask), and I'm still not pretty much impressed by how it sounds. The Topping D2 has made the HD 650 sounds more forward and energetic than how it normally does, but I'm still not getting the "wow" factor. I think I'll try this essense one. Thanks for the information by the way.
You're welcome :) I just found this thread on Asus Xonar Essence One on here. Seems like it has received some attention on the boards after all. Plowing through it right now.
Not sure what you are referring to here, but if that was directed towards me and you plan on continuing proof reading my posts I'm afraid you just found yourself a full time job :D
