Being new..with my Violectric V800, V200, Audeze LCD-2's and (now) Amarra....(I tried a HiFace 2 USB interface but could discern no difference in the sound in my Mac setup so back it went to Amazon).... I am rediscovering my whole catalog of music in a new sonic environment. What I am finding is something good and something bad.... some recordings that I merely "liked" before are so well recorded (and that fact is brought to light by this equipment), and I am more than WOWED by that sonic purity along with the music, while some of my other recordings where I have really "LOVED" the music in the past are poorly recorded and this fact is screamingly obvious now...and it is disappointing as the poor tech quality of the recording takes away from the music big time. It took me a little time to realize what was going on. At first I thought, Hey this expensive equipment is no better the my Skull Candy Buds plugged into the headphone jack on my Mac....but alas...I think I realize the truth now. So this is kind of a love hate thing for me right now!!!! LOL! Has anyone else experienced this mini roller-coaster ride?
I plan on purchasing a Anedio D2 DAC (as I am on the waiting list for the Sept. batch), for a small 300B tube amp/bookshelf speaker set up I am putting together, so I will have something to compare the Violectrics to when I get the new DAC. This should be fun and interesting and I am looking forward to it.
Shame that the HiFace 2 didn't work out for you!!!
