They are both different and good sounding amps!

That's why I love my XE1 so much, if don't like the sound. It mean it time for you to roll them opamps.

Don't use your wallet to exercise your curiosity, your next upgrade might not be what your after and that could be a costly gamble.

Has anybody checked out/used the new Firmware and Driver for the E1? It's dated 6/19/2013.

Thanks for the finding ! Going to install.

Cool as, maybe they fix the upsampling issue with the early 15khz cutoff.

Where the new firmware files? I only see the new firmware upload tool and USB drivers.

Because it is not a new firmware, it is only a new version of the firmware update tool.

1x 2200µF 16v
2x 1500µF 25v
2x 330µF 25V 
1x 470µF 16v 

 

It cost me around 5€, so it was a pretty cheap mod as well. I had to leave the capacitor legs a bit longer because the legs are further apart on the Panasonic one-s, also the smaller capacitors are wider so they don´t quite fit next to each other. But this should not be an issue.

 

Or if you mean compare the capacitors by technical sheet, it is also not really possible because the original one-s are some OEM types without branding. 

 

Weird, I've just changed all my capacitors and notice your values in your XE1 is different..

 

1 x 1800uF 25V 12.5 x 25 105c replaced with Nichicon HV 1800uF 25V 12.5 x 25 105c
2 x 1200uF 35V 12.5x 25 105c replaced with Nichicon HV 1200uF 35V 12.5 x 25 105c
2 x 330uF 25V 8 x 10 105c replaced with Nichicon HE 8 x 15 3.5mm 105c
1 x 470uF 16V 8 x 10 105c replaced with Nichicon HE 8 x 20 3.5mm 105c
 
My stock caps are Panasonic FR. I compared them to the Nichicon I bought. Caps I replaced them with are rated to last longer and have lower internal impedance and better ripple current.

Interesting they apparently changed the capacities in the newer version. Mine also turned out to be Panasonic FR-s so the upgrade wasn't very useful.

Does anyone else hear a hissing sound in headphones while connected through USB and having the headphones volume knob all the way up? It's not there if you never listened to anything (just turned it on), but when you listen to something and then stop - hissing. Lowering source volume doesn't have any effect on it. It's audible starting from around 50% volume.

What headphone or IEM you using?
post #2274 of 3016

HD600. In ASIO mode looks like it's all nice and quiet. Tried different USB port, same thing.

No hissing sound for me. Btw, why would you listen to it with volume all the way up?

I have just received the email from NewJRC, apparently the Muses01 I have bought are 100% FAKE. They said only Digi-key stock them, but they don't have any stocks atm.

They have also showed me how to tell between the Authentic and Fake ones.

So please look at this photo and check before you decide to buy any from anyone online:



Hope this helps! Now I have to get my money back from Aliexpress, hope they're as good as Paypal :/

That sucks. Always use my MC aswell on the net as extra safety.

The muses opamps i bought where real but i bought them trough my wifes work that got them in China trough an electronic supplier. Still I like the stock opamps more with some headphones that are brighter in sound. Right now a friend is trying them on his Asus one so depending on if he like them or not I will sell them to him.

The print on their picture looks genuine, but it proves nothing.

Would be grateful for any info .

What Mobo are you plugging it into, and are you using USB 3.0 or 2.0?
