It's summer already, LME49990s AD797BRZs are toooo hot in E1. So I decided to start rolling some opamps again. LPF: ADA4627-1brz, I/V: Muses8920D, Buffer: ADA4637-1brz (600Ohm headphone, seems stable for me), , wow, i just can not stop listening.

Asus Essence One Headphone Amp/DAC (CeBIT 2011) - Page 201
Gear mentioned in this thread:
1) opamps in positions 1 and 2 have been replaced by the market leading Muses01 opamp from NJR: http://semicon.njr.co.jp/eng/MUSES/MUSES01.html
2) the PCB has been revised in order to provide a jumper to set the headamp gain in either LOW or HIGH position, as the regular ONE came with its headamp set to HIGH and this was a bit of a potential issue with low impedance/high sensitivity headphones for people who don't listen at loud volume.
3) the regular and Muses edition are using different pots(B10K>A10K) on the headamp: http://www.taiwanalpha.com.tw/english/p_e_70-1.htm
I couldn't really hear any difference
The E1 isn't making any use of the USB power(you can even break the +5V pin of your USB cable for that matter) and its USB drivers run in async mode so good luck hearing any difference
I have the STX and wondered about the same thing.
Searched a lot of reviews, and finally bought the One.
There is no going back to the STX. The STX is so bright, it ends up fatiguing.
The One is more analytical and more natural, I really enjoy the music.
Is anyone having problems playing back the latest MQN version 4 and 5 media player suites?
When using his latest creations which uses 256 period sizes it plays with a metallic sound and a lot of background noise, irrespective of if you use SSE, AVX or AVX2 instruction sets.
I am running the latest Windows 8.1 Professional with the 1st Driver release of 18.104.22.168, I was thinking this might not be a problem on Windows 7 or Windows 8 versions?
Would appreciate if anyone here who is a fan of MQN can shed some light on this issue?
I have the ST and bought the E1 to compare. The E1 one is better as an amp, but as a DAC I couldnt tell much difference. I ended up selling the E1 and getting an UberFrost and separate amps for specific headphones.
You mean more detailed and natural?, Cause I thought analytical and natural can be oposites.
It sounds like there is more space between each instrument.
Also it drives great high impedance headphones, like the AKG K601 I have, and couldn't bear with the STX.
keep in mind though, that the sound is kinda bassy, and it tends to create a problem with headphones that already have a strong bass.
I guess it wouldn't mix well with a Audeze headphone. I already tried the LCD-2 with the STX and it didn't sound okay at all. With low gain you reach half the volume meter and it doesn't get any louder from there and starts to clip. with medium and high gain there's no more clip, but the distorsion is unbearable.
