I acquired this device finally as of yesterday, have put around 8 hours into it now, and I have some questions about it I was hoping other users could help me with.
- Does the stock USB cable it comes with need to be replaced, or is it sufficient? If I were to get, say, NuForce's Impulse USB cable, how much of a difference would that make?
- Is there a burn-in time for portable DAC/Amps? If so, any estimates on what it would be for this NuForce?
- Is there an option or setting that needs to be adjusted so that the laptop outputs material straight to the soundcard in the NuForce, or is this automatic? The reason I ask is because I can adjust volume of the device from my computer in the taskbar volume control, so it seems to me like the computer sound card is still being used as in in-between.
- With just 50 OHM headphones (Sennheiser HD 595s), should I still notice a substantial difference in sound quality as other reviewers seem to be achieving with this NuForce?
