just plugged in my odac and O2 for the first time. looks like this is the very best audio tweak for bigger, better bass:
proper amplification and a good dac!
maybe its just because im excited about getting new gear, perhaps its just some psychological bias, but i found myself turning the bass DOWN on the eq, i took it down from +10 db to +7. coming from my sub-par laptop dac and a cmoy, i find the bass alot more pronounced. ill give it a few weeks to get used to the sound and then try and a/b the O2 and cmoy, and then a/b with and without the odac to try and see if i can detect a difference, but for now, im very pleased.
i guess its worth mentioning im using dt 770 pro 250 ohm. these are said to improve greatly when paired with a good amp, the better the amp - the better the headphones. so far, seems like its true =]
i understand one can get some sort of switchbox, where you connect (for example) two amps, and then can switch between them instantly, for the sake of making a/b comparisons. do these things exist, and if so, are they affordable? what are they called?
Ooh yay, gettin my first dac soon a schitt modi. Upgraded from.stock mobo dac xD but yea a good amp,makes a world of differance
