If you decided to sell your Muses01, I don't mind getting them for $150 smily_headphones1.gif

Np going by more than half the people on this thread with channel imbalance problems I can't see why the RMA unit being anything different, so I probably will be selling the muses

++ For me it was more around 260$ but I would not call it worth it thats why im selling them, also with the T1 im buying I prefer the stock opams.

That's why I am giving up on the Muses01, don't think it's worth the $200+ for a little bit of sound change

Sorry Leonarfd, are you 100% sure you have genuine muses? to say you prefer stock flabby bottom end, no detail small soundstage, is just ridiculous for most people who have the muses

 

If you do that's fine I just fined it very hard to believe

I know it is the real deal Gandah as Ive also tested a genuine Asus Muses edition to check if it sounds the same as thestock version with the opams(bought the opams before I got the Stock version in house around february I think), the difference betwean the stock and muses is there but its not big. I prefer to use more money on a new good headphone than getting that little extra in some opams, with my hd600 and Mad Dog I prefered the muses, but with k701 and dt880 I prefer the stock version. Btw this is when im using the headphone out of the one, might be I would think different if I only used the dac of the one. I got no amp atm I prefer more than the one inside the One, will be getting a otl amp soon for my next buy the t1.

Guys, Muses made the E1 more "Musical" in lame words.

 

Much more enjoyable, which makes you close your eyes and transcends your soul with the music.

 

It makes me smile every time I listen to a track.....We should not forget, its all about enjoying our music.

Muses01 must be the most expensive op amp out there right?

"it clearly trounced the standard edition with its vastly more spacious sound to become perhaps the most spacious sounding DAC I’ve heard in the $1K mark. Along with the more expansive soundstage you also get a flatter frequency response especially to the stock unit. What I didn’t hear is an improved black background and a cleaner sound with less grain: the Muses edition is still guilty of these two offenses."

From what headphonia has described, the only difference between the muses01 and the stocks are that they provides wider soundstage and flatter frequency response.

I own the Muses, I started off stock, then Plus Edition and finally the Muses01.

I'm normally not one to song and dance, but the Muses opamps deserve worldwide recognition as the greatest contribution to audio reproduction.

Every time my system fires up these little delights have me turning Japanese in response to their amazing sound.

I am going to buy 11 of these and swap every one on my Xonar DAC as well as another three for my Xonar ST.

Well done Asus and JRC I cannot possibly believe it can get any better.

Has anyone tried muses in ether HP amp or XLR? I would be curious in impressions if anyone has

post #2308 of 3076

I used the E1 as an amp, and later as a dac to my woo audio wa2. 

In both instances I preferred the muses over the stock. 

 

II also preferred the muses with the T1's and the lcd-2s.

 

Just goes to show you how everyone hears things differently I guess.

Just scored a brand new E1 for $260 on eBay. What should I check when I get it? Ive seen stuff about volume controller versions? channel balancing? Gain jumpers?

post #2310 of 3076

Hi Everyone

 

I'm a E1 owner since 5 days to day my dac has decided to not giving sound with all the leds on.

I've tried to unplugg the ac cable and wait few minutes but nothing happens.

Also unplugged the usb cable (I only use the USB as source), headphone... nothing seems to work :(

 

Any clue?

 

Thanks in advance
