Asus Essence One Headphone Amp/DAC (CeBIT 2011) - Page 205

post #3061 of 3069

Mach3 did you change all the capacitors in your E1 or was it someone else? Anyway if you indeed changed them did it affect the sound much? If I decide to keep my Muses I will probably do some mods to my E1 just because its fun :D I'm also thinking about replacing the A10k pot with better quality pot.

How many are you planning on buying and where you planning on placing them? (Headphone buffer)

Yes, 2.

 

Do you think I should change also the others?

 

Will that make a difference? I mean a big difference...

Yeah I changed all the caps to higher quality cap with better tolerance. Check page 163, upgrade heatsink thermalpad, upgrade power supply caps to Panasonic FR 10000 hours low ESR. check 169 for full caps upgrade. If you use all the parts I suggest. Everything will work well and fit perfectly.

Replacing the stock with the MUSES01, I've notice it more forgiving with brighter headphones. Soundstage and clarity still there but more dynamic and lively. Unit doesn't heat up as much as my stock opamp either, not that it was hot to begin with.

Just like to mention I've got some request for group buy of the MUSES01. PM if you're interested. Actual purchase won't be until 4 week time from now. I've got at 3 people that are keen to buy 6x each. It's about $42 USD each

 

Not sure if this is allowed to be posted here. So I hope I'm not breaking any rules. Just wanna help  some head fi member get the good stuff for their Essence One.

Hi there,

 

I currently have a Asus Essence STXII sound card upgraded with 3x (genuine) MUSES01. Have to say it does sound really good but I am wondering how much better would the Asus Essence One Muses edition be compared to my STXII with muses01?

 

I was thinking if I ever did go for Asus Essence One Muses edition I can put my Muses01 in the Essence one plus that would mean I only need 2 more to max it out. 

 

I'd love to know!

 

:)

I'm pretty sure it would sound better and different. You dont need to max out your muses if you are not using rca and balanced outputs.
