TEAC UD-H01 USB DAC - Page 17

post #241 of 278

Yea, I saw that picture and thought, "Hey, he's got the same setup. Nice." :dt880smile: I'm an F1 fan too. I have a couple of Alain Prost diecasts and rc cars.

 

That is quite a sale price on the NP-H750.

I hear that and I wish we had the same setup... I'm not about to go inside my Teac UD-H01 just yet!!! Hasn't been a week yet...

 

If you don't already know then check out the

 

F1 Lounge  http://www.head-fi.org/t/648825/formula-1-fi-read-the-first-post

 

But I digress....

 

Finally got J River to communicate fully with the UD-H01 and learned a lot in the process...

came across this  

 

http://marlene-d.blogspot.com/2013/07/review-of-fiio-e07k-andes-fiio-l7.html

 

went through the whole article and did the test tone thingy and even got  http://www.asio4all.com/

 

but turns out the Output Format box was clicked in my J River limiting me to 24/96:blink: via the Output Encoding... (now set to None)

 

 

 

but that has since been rectified pushing 24/192 now!!!

 

Peace.....:L3000:

There is a huge power conditioner.

Is it improving the sound quality significantly or noticeably at least ?

The cost of the power conditioner is big part of the cost of the rig.

If you're talking about the three oval window jammy on the floor then that's not the power conditioner....

 

That's the AVS 2000 - the power conditioner is the HTPS 7000 MKII  which is not too far away on a table.....(both are by Monster)

 

Everything (TEAC NP-H750, UD-H01 - Burson Conductor, HA-160, DA-160, Schiit Mjolnir ) is plugged into the power conditioner and in turn the power conditioner is plugged into the Voltage Stabilizer (AVS 2000) I've never listened to any of my gear without them being hooked up!

 

Living in a house you get power fluctuations quite often and after I witnessed my brother's plasma getting repaired a couple of times:blink:

 

I decided to learn from his mistakes and secure all my Home Theater/Audio gear with this setup. If it weren't for his

plasma getting continuously zapped then I probably would have just bought a rinky-dink power strip and called it a day.

 

 

- Peace...:L3000:

i think your setup makes sense not only for the SQ but protection from power surge.
PS audio sells the power plant to improve the sound quality through one big A-B class power amplifier to regenerate the pure power for audio rig.

I also decided to buy some Monster to do some pilot project to see some improvement for both SQ and safety.
it is interesting to witness that an amplifier for only 60 hz AC signal for audio amplifier to improve the 2nd order importance or sound amplifier.
According to amplifier theory the power rail fluctuation is not important so that its influence is ignorable or it is the 2nd order importance or less impact on amplification.

If you really want to see how far down the rabbit hole goes when it comes to Clean Stable Power then here ya go

My friend has nothing but praise for the Pole Pig but I don't think he owns one...:blink:

 

 

I chose Monster after doing my research - "To each his own I guess"

 

 

Just remember this is only half the Power Battle as all six devices that are plugged into my Monster HTPS 7000 MKII

have had their stock power cable replaced as well... All are running Synergistic Research AC Master Couplers 

except for the Balanced Setup (TEAC UD-H01 > Schiit Mjolnir ) which is on PS Audio Jewel Cables.... Whew!!!!

 

 

Enjoy....:L3000:

TEAC NPH-750 has indeed a very good DAC.

When it drove  LCD2.2 via speaker tap directly it showed some level of noise floor. But there is no noise through topping tp60 connected to DAC of NPH-750.

 

It drove HE-6 nicely which was hooked to speaker taps directly.

Through the same setup of LCD2.2 by using it as DAC, He-6 performs even better.

 

What a cheap solution for the high end headphones!

 

See there are lots of people here in head-fier who are spending thousand dollars for LCD2 and He-6 solution.

There ain´t much to complain at this Price, I am happy with, normally it costs 350 Euro in Europe, but I could buy it for 250 Euro in a shop who stopped dealing with Teac. The headphone amp is indeed a bit weak, but that could be due to the headphones used. For example a senn HD650 is difficult to drive but with the Momentum you could get better results.I use this DAC as soundcard for my Laptop and using Teufel headphones.

I did also re-install the Drivers after cleaning pc and now all works perfect.. This Driver is an update of the original one, after buying the dac, almost 1,5 year ago.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but can you opamp roll this unit to use muses01?
post #251 of 278

Does anyone know how this would compare with a fully tricked out (Uber and USB) Schiit Bifrost?

post #252 of 278
No idea i use this Dac to replace the soundcard of my laptop and i am happy with the results certainly at this price point,just looking for the right cans to go with it

To me, they have a softer and relaxed sound but have to wait for them to burn-in. For the price that i paid, it is a bargain but too bad the USB input doesn't work on Linux.

I just got one of these and I use an Ubuntu system. I've found that most dacs can be switched to via small app called indicator-sound-switcher. My last DAC also had a burr brown/TI chip and worked fine. Will I have trouble with this too? Has anyone gotten it working in 'nix ?

I had this dac (not anymore) but if you like a darker sound, Senn HD650s sound perfect with them as the Teac is very very neutral. AKG Q701s sound absolutely horrible though, unless you use a separate amp.

I just picked up one of these for $150 shipped. Not too bad of a price if I might say so. I was considering getting a bifrost instead, but figured I'd give this little guy a try first. I'll be using Grado SR-325i's with a Yarland P100 tube amp driving them and the teac as my digital source. However, what problems specifically have people had using this with Linux? I plan to use it with Lubuntu. I've previously had other Burr Brown DACs and never had a problem driving them with the yktoo indicator-sound-switcher in Linux. I hope this will be the case with the Teac. If it's not, I'll have a unit for sale soon!
