Sound unbelievably great on my Fire Phoenix. And on my Bravo amp. I haven't tried it yet with the ELE dac but there is no possible way it won't sound right with it. I will post a little turkey thanksgiving post on the HA-S500 thread tomorrow..

 

$18. And it makes everything you hear from your computer sound very great. Completely worth the cash and thensome.

 

When you get a chance, let me know how it makes those xba3's of yours sound smile.gif

At work I can hear interference when I just go to print something while using the onboard sound. I'd go crazy without a DAC. Yet nearly everyone else deals with it as I don't know of anyone else who uses a DAC. Ever, in two years of working there. There are even a lot of people who use these garbage headsets supplied for making calls even if there is no calling required for their jobs. Worst things I have ever heard for music by a mile, god awful "headphone headphones" like $1 Wal-Mart cheapies and stuff that sounds like you're listening through an answer machine annihilate them. All day, every day.

Why would you listen to the worst headphone in existence(that I've heard regardless of signature preference) for 7-9 hours a day 4-5 days a week for YEARS when you can easily afford something better? People. They're the worst.

Will do tomorrow. I have to actually go into work for a few hours on Thanksgiving. But it gives me a chance to mess around with my new toys.Will throw out some impressions of how the XBA-3 sounds with the ELE DAC..The MH1C sounded amazing when I had it hooked up. It sounded more closer to the XBA-3 than the HM1. Lol.

 

I am burning in my new USB cable and my new ELE dac that is hooked up to my new MDR-1R.. 3 burn ins at one time.

Getting a cheaper Audio usb is always a good idea for audio imo. At the bare minimum. Go to your local walmart and get a decent Belkin USB cable for $10.

Alright damn it ORDERED!!! BUT BUT the million dollar question is WILL printer usb cables work on these to power them up???  LMAO

 

My mind better be blown when I listen to my S500s on these cheapo DAC, cuz I am just listening straight from my ipod classic/ nano and am floored by their sound. These S500s are truly the KING of Value.

Lol. The reason is. People don't know any better. I bet if you let them listen to your set up They would realize just how much they are missing out. I have people that I let listen to my headphones at my work they poo as they have never heard a hifi headphone before. They just sit there and grin from ear to ear as they have never heard anything so good. I think it depends on your upbringing too. If you family was never really into music or listening to music then their kids will grow up never knowing how awesome it is to listen to music in the fullest purest form.

 

I think most of us had family that had something to do with music that influenced us to appreciate good sound. For me it was my father. He used to own the only record store in the city of Suwon south Korea during the later 60s and early 70s. I have picks of him throwing on his big headphones on my head when I was a little baby. I was listening to reel to reel audio and records before I could crawl.

Did you try more than one tube on the T1?

Any USB cable will conduct the needed current from the USB port of your computer/laptop to the DAC.  The same goes for transferring the digital data (ones and zeros) from your computer to your DAC.  A printer cable will work.  What you don't want is a very long USB cable because of high signal degradation related to USB cable technology.

 

Eventually, you will want a cable that looks better than a generic USB cable.  If your setup sounds good, you will also want it to look good.  But, use the printer cable first.  It will work.

Yeah that MV was genius when it 1st came out, then all the hipsters got on the bandwagon and it's just out of control now, pure madness. LoL Americans always late to the "hip" trends and over do it it seems. haha  deadhorse.gif

Ya I am sick of it myself but hey almost 800,000,000 hits cant be wrong Lol.

 

I was born in South Korea but immigrated to the states when I was 7 years old in 1978..So I am more American than Korean. I am married to a Korean woman and have 2 good looking Korean kids.

 

@Alberto. I bought the tube that was mentioned on the AUNE T1 thread and while for the most part sounded good. The sound was fatiguing. I couldn't keep my headphones on my head and that was when I realized the overall sound signature of the T1 was too bright. I also tried the stock tube that was provided and while this was better. It was still a brighter sounding DAC. I know with burn in or more use the sound would smooth out but I was completely blown away on first listen to the $18 ELE DAC more so than the T1.

 

I would much rather save the money for a new FXZ100 when those are reasonable.

I am telling every single one of you guys that use your onboard sound. Wait till you guys hear your tunes. Even your MP3s from your laptop out of this little dac. Prepare for the shocking revelation. Even guys that have much higher end dacs. Seriously you gotta here these.

Slow down Ds !      ....I can hardly keep up ! tongue_smile.gif

 

Speaking of which, something I don't get, why do you say 'Happy turkey day' when obviously the turkeys are not going to be very happy ? confused_face(1).gif
