D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions - Page 7

post #91 of 664

so I've been testing my D7 as digital transport to feed my NFB3 this last few days.

well at start i was kinda skeptic that D7 would improve NFB3. but I think I heard more detail and more refined bass from my setup now.

I just hope this is not a placebo of mine L3000.gif

The XMOS USB receiver in the D7 is very good. It is asynchronous, fully USB Class 2 compliant and supports 24bit/192khz data feed. I will not surprised if it improves the USB receiver of your NFB3.

 

I am using the D7 as my DAC/Amp for my IEM and I really couldn't be happier. There aren't many out there that can touch the D7, especially given its price. Further, it acts also as a USB/SPDIF converter as well as a DAC for desktop speakers/amp/receivers.

Any hiss or channel imbalance?

Can't hear any hiss on my ES5.

 

Slight imbalance at the most minimum listening level with low gain. That volume is kind of too low for any listening anyway because I couldn't hear what the person is singing.

Do you experience small imbalance on D7 with your TF10 at normal listening volume?

I don't have TF10. Going by the specs of TF10, if there are going to be any imbalance, it should be much lesser than my ES5.

 

The imbalance is so slight. I never noticed it until pekingduck asked about it. It was then I tried to go to the lowest volume then I realized that sound first started from the left and then from both sides as the volume knot is increased.

I also never hear any hiss or channel imbalance with my GR07

Anyone with Senn HD-600s that can speak on synergy w/ the D7?

I admit to still being tempted by the low price of the D7, but the fiscal doom and gloom coming from the World Bank has me very, very nervous. eek.gif

 

To those of you with more fortitude, keep those impressions coming.

Go for it! Then when the gloom and doom comes, you will already have a D7!

The D7 is one of the few rare products that I sing praises about. You know me. I don't even care about T51.
