Yeah taobao is a bit...

well, it should be ok as long as I buy from shops with good reputation.

and there shouldn't be much room to f-up for a piece of metal.

 

I'll be getting the case there too.

but from what I've seen so far, we may need to have it custom made afterall.... 

Our size is a bit hard to get with stock cases.

"transeint" What is this word supposed to be?

 

Why no combos? It's not like you have to use the built in amp. At this price range a lot things are combos I think. Plus, if you can get a good amp at the same time, why not? The only things I can think of that aren't combos around this price range are the ODAC, or an HRT Music Streamer II. That being said, both of those are actually very solid choices I should think.

Transient means it does not add anything, you know that

 

I might look at the ODAC, and yea I know [don't use the amp function] and I also looked at the 

Audinst HUD-mx1 Hi-Fi USB Audio DAC

Don't you mean "transparent"?

"Transient" means "short time"....

No it doesn't. Transient is like a loud and sudden peak in the audio. I think the word your looking for is "transparent." In that case, personally I would avoid potentially sketchy brands such as Nuforce, Audinst, etc...

 

As I always say, don't count out pro audio interfaces either, though it probably doesn't make a difference as there isn't really any price difference.

I remember the days when I used to spend time 'researching' what audio devices I wanted to buy. Now I'm tired and don't really care anymore, hahaha.

Difference in SQ I hear in different gear throughout my audio journey:

None -> A LOT -> a bit.

LOL

Buys multi-thousand dolor digital console -> use 2 output channels as DAC to listen to music biggrin.gif

post #38200 of 117675

When I first listened to hi-res files I was all like "holy cow, I can hear the purer more analog-like sound waves, so much more realistic! (◐ o ◑ )" And I remember getting into an argument with someone in the sound science forums because I claimed that the difference between redbook and 24/96 was "night and day." I got mad because people were telling me otherwise and asking if I did an ABX (it was an ABX thread) and I was all like "What's that? I don't need no ABX or whatever, I can clearly hear the difference!"
