Hello there folks.. Its been a while since i posted. Lucky enough i came across this thread just as the right questions were being raised. OK.. long story short:
Blue Alien, I (WILL) have the almost exact same rig as you: Lenovo (audio destroyer) => USB Bifrost (magical audio fixer) => Lyr (nuclear tube power plant) => K701 (my sweet AKGs). I have 3 questions for you:
- Are you pleased with the way the Lyr drives the K702. Essentially, does it warm them up a tiny bit and do you like the overall presentation? Hopefully it is less bright.
- How does the USB Bifrost work with the Lenovo? Ive got a newer Lenovo but im still concerned that it will not work properly. I hope there wont be any jitter.
- On your current setup, how do you rate the Bifrost's USB performance with its SPDIF performance (sans the Lenovo, if you have tried it)?
HK_sends, what wuld you suggest as a suitable RCA interconnects for the Lyr - Bifrost combo. IMHO, I dont think high end cables are necessary such as Cardas or Nordost, however, I have no intention to run them with a 5$ crap bought in pc electronics store. What would you suggest? I am expecting a presentation that is as neutral as possible, or slightly warmer if it has to be, however, I dont want to add to the brightness of the AKG K701s.
Thank you guys, my questions are open to everyone!
