I just received the hardware that I posted in the title bar. It's alright. I thought it would be more. To be honest , I believe my HT Omega Striker 7.1 (with equalizer settings) had better sound quality with my HD600s. It was (pretty) clear highs , good mids , decent lows. With the D1 I feel as though I'm not "there". The highs are lacking. It sounds somewhat muffled.
Is the sound going to change that much over the burn-in period? I had it going for 5 hours while I went to work , came home and it sounds no different then when I initially tried it.
Would I be better off with a soundcard?
What can I do to improve the sound? Is it as is , or are there sound settings I'm missing.
(This is off topic a bit) but one of the reasons for getting the D1 was for PS3 compatibility. If I didn't have the PS3 I would of just got a new soundcard but my previous soundcard wouldn't work with the PS3. What options are there?
This is all I have for now. I'm pretty sure I'm going to turn in the D1. I just want someone else's opinion as well. And expertise.
Silly question - does the amp just increase the loudness and tone? It has little to no affect on sound? Or is it something else.
