I haven't heard of anyone doing it, though it's theoretically possible. The XLR out has an impedance of 80 ohms. That means you wouldn't want to use 300 ohm Sennheisers with it, as the damping factor would be too low. But with 600 ohm Beyers and such it would come very close to the ideal minimum damping factor of 8. So it would probably work just fine. Any benefit compared to the front panel headphone jack? Doubtful but you never know.

I scrounged up an abandoned Dell laptop at work that's running XP and loaded a trial version of JRiver MC and hooked it up to the D2 via a Wireworld Ultra Violet (1 meter) while I wait for my SBT to get here.

 

With the Senn HD-650's running out of the headphone jack I'd rate the performance somewhere between 8 and 9 on a scale of 1-10. With perhaps sound stage and bass clarity being the major weak spots.

 

For those users that have upgraded to the SBT+EDO, an Audiophilleo or Legato is the improvement pretty substantial over a straight laptop?

With CD quality, my Audiophilleo 2 + Purepower it is a noticeable improvement, but not huge. On Hi-Rez it is huge. Night and day difference. I also have a Aqvox, but I hear no improvement with the SBT+EDO. I think the Anedio D2 galvanic isolation does it is supposed do and very well.

Are you using SPDI/F (computer clock) or USB (D2 clock) connection?

USB (D2 clock) connection.

Just received the squeezebox touch and installed the EDO-Enhanced Digital Output app. Whoa! I love it! Even the internet radio sounds great. I played some flac files and they all sounded really good. Now I need to add a usb-spdif asynchronous converter, so many choices. I am leaning towards the legato but am looking at others as well. Is there a big differance among the converters? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Which would be better with HD800 in pair?

 

I am probably very late with an answer but I can tell you that the V200 is better with the HD 800 not because it is in my signature but because I have the D2 here and compared both setups. Project86 might agree on the V200 being especially better on the lower end.

Hi,

 

My D2 just shipped, and i'm so exciting, now!!

 

and, I'm looking for headphone. 

 

How does D2 drive HD800 or T1??? I just order 4 Vrms one.

 

If i get HD800 or T1, i'd better get another amp???

I own the D1 and it drives the HD800 superbly.

 

I'm in the process now of experimenting a bit with cables and EQ'ing to get the kind of sound I want but I think the HD800 directly out of the Anedio could turn out to be a really good minimalistic combo.

Has anyone tried to drive Hifiman planars from headphone output of Anedio D1/D2?

I have the D1 and the HE6 is a no. The HE400 works fine but it isn't terribly hard to drive. 

post #1062 of 1357

Im especially interested with HE5LE but not big deal. Just curious.

But thanks for answer.

Got my D2 today....what can I say.......Best source I ever heard in my life (of course it will be, it's my first serious desktop Dac)...beerchug.gif

 

I thought it's gonna be somewhat bright.from early impressions and D1 impressions. The high is smooth as hell~~~ Extremely neutral to my ears from bottom to top. Whatever I feed it with... It delivers. There is no hiss on any of my IEMs (sensitive or not sensitive)...The bass control is really super.

 

Thank you Anedio! I am a indeed happy customer.

anyone use HD650 with d2??? Then, How loud do you listen with them?? my case, around 40 is good for modern music, but classical music isn't enough even 60. Do i need to get amp???
