Have you already compared the Headstreamer to the D1? I'm considering both as my next purchase.
I may be wrong but as far as I know the D1 has a better DAC, and the line out and S/PDIF in are a huge plus.
From what I've read the D1 uses adaptive USB mode and the Headstreamer uses asynchronous mode, but from the manufacturers specifications the D1 has a TI1020B USB controller and the Headstreamer has a TI TAS1020B controller, are they the same?
I only plan on gaming and listening to music through my computer, no editing, mixing or recording. Would the asynchronous mode bring any benefit?
And what about the Headstreamer vs Music Streamer II with a <$50 headphone amp?
I really can't decide yet and I don't have any way of testing any of the products I mentioned here in Portugal.
I'm currently using my iPod's IEMs but planning on buying a pair of AKG K412P.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
