^ Yeah since you don't have any high-res files to play like 24b/192k, usb on V800 is enough. Like John-Project86 said, having a decent spdif transporter is an optional addon, and for trying 24b/192k via usb (the Tenor chip accepts up to 96k). 25ps after elimination/reclocking process is "world class", and having a "so so" transporter like M2tech Hiface (50ps) is not necessary. Trying to get a single digit one like audiophilleo 1 with pure power is 'over kill' for V800 imho. Of course if you're seeking the best, it's absolutely worth getting, but I'd rather invest those money on a better DAC first

Violectric will be coming out with 24/192 USB for the V800 any time now.For existing owners it will be an easy upgrade replacing the PCB.I got this info from Freid on 5/23 and at the time he said they were 6 weeks away.post #513 of 7727/11/13 at 8:38ampost #514 of 7727/11/13 at 8:38amQuote:

I cannot share headfonia experiences, too. Ok, I'm quite limited in experience, but those items I had and were reviewed by headfonia did't match my experience at all (HD 800, Yulong U100, V800, V200, Asus Essence One, Asus Essence ST).
My advice is to listen by yourself.post #520 of 7727/19/13 at 2:40pmpost #521 of 7727/22/13 at 5:51amA lot of the stuff you read on Headfonia seems to be at odds with the general consensus. A lot of that is probably down to the fact that they have experience with the equipment they're writing about whereas a lot of the stuff you read on here is just people parroting what other people have said. I don't agree with everything I read on Headfonia. Sometimes I think their determination to sound impartial has the opposite effect and comes across as biased. Head-Fi is full of nonsense but there are lots of knowledgeable people like Project86 who clearly know their stuff.post #522 of 7727/24/13 at 2:55pm^ well put
In a statistical sense there's something to be said for consensus, except as you say it often is parroting. It starts with "I read" or "I heard that" and at some point the qualifier is omitted. It then sounds like someone's reporting their own experience. Not a useful contribution to the sum of listening knowledge.post #523 of 7727/24/13 at 4:21pmI remember reading about something called the "reverse insertion technique" in an IEM thread. Somebody in that thread was writing about the benefits to be gained by taking some in ear monitors and sticking them in your ears the wrong way round. I think he said it opened up the soundstage or something. Since coming across that, I've learned not to take everything I read on Head-Fi too seriously. That's not to discount the opinions of people who do know what they're talking about - of which there are plenty.post #524 of 7727/24/13 at 11:59pmQuote:Originally Posted by Tony1110

Just like my sig says.
Unfortunately the number of people who don't know what they're talking about and just copy what they read is bigger. (
It takes a while to find the posters you can "trust" but there are some really good guys here too.post #525 of 7727/25/13 at 1:55amQuote:
Even more unfortunate is the fact that opportunistic manufacturers cater for those who are easily convinced by such talk. If enough people on head-fi are led to believe in a particular solution, you can bet your house on it that within a month or two a commercially available product appears on a website via an innocent looking link in a thread on the forum. Never fails to amaze me.
