Audio-gd Master-5/6/8/9 balanced head amp/ preamp - Page 46

post #676 of 876

I didn't see the pictures of the new M9. Is that just me or the picture they had in the front page looked identical to the M8?

 

Now they look like this, with a volume pot:

Yeah i am keen to know if that image is the real Master 9? The Master 8 did not have the volume control nob.

I don't own one.

I was just checking Audio-gd's website and found out that the M9 looks different from before.

Me likey!

 

I realize it's digital, but I still like having that pot. I think the overall design looks better than the M8. It's a small difference but I like!

 

Drool :devil_face:

I wonder if Sony UDA-1 will be a nice complement to Master 9 or their headphone amp. Right now I'm exploring the support for DSD...

post #684 of 876

I'd prefer it with out the nob , but I don't really care either way :)

 

I was thinking of adding in a Loki to give me DSD but hey maybe not

Looks good, interesting the headphone outs are wired to the 3 pin xlr first, also,hookup lengths are different so i guess this doesn't matter so much. I will probably order one some time in January.

The truth is there is almost no dacs that play dsd directly without converting it to PCM or multibit. I did a lot of reading on the topic. You are better off getting a good dac and convert dsd and all high res to wave. This will improve the sound in Almost all dacs . I even did this with my DAP , s as well . The GUI is much faster with this format , the chips inside do not have to process the files as much. It also improves the batter life as well.

I only have one DSD album anyways.. but that's a fair comment ALRAINBOW.

 

Also apparently, that IS the new face of the Master 9. According to someone in the other master 9 thread. I wonder why kingwa brought back the volume nob.

 

Also ALRAINBOW ;

 

How do you find the heat when stacking M8/M7? From my understanding the M8 runs pretty warm?

Not sure why . I read somewhere that king wa moved away from it due to breakage during shipment . I do prefer the buttons as it is easy to know exactly where you are with numbers. Does anyone here know if the knob changes numbers in the display ? If it does then I am fine with that..

Knob changed number before he did buttons, I'm sure it would now.

 

Maybe ask Kingwa about DSD? I would keep the ACSS connection between DAC and M9 if I could.

Last time i spoke to kingwa he did not seem to interested in DSD, that may change how ever.
