Not sure how to describe it sorry. Sounds like a static ringing.

Stan I have already tried the same powerstrip as my pc and no dice. I'm almost positive something is up with my USB or pc.

Oh btw here is the thread where the person seemed to have the same issue

Those with Modi/Magni stack:

What headphones do you use?

How loud do you have your Magni turned up? (11 o'clock, 2 o'clock...etc)

My Modi made a hissing sound when my Vali is turned up loud (with no music playing of course) ;  narrowed it down to this setting :

 

 

Turning it to 24 bit / 96kHz playback makes the hiss inaudible, or at least quieter than Vali's inherent hiss.  Worth a try.

Don't have Magni, but Vali is slightly less powerful and I usually listen at 7:30-8:00 position with HD600's :basshead:

My money is on the PC having a defect that is causing noise on its ground. a USB isolator can probably help with this, The best thing is to solve the problem at the core. It could be, the computer's  PSU, internal wiring, power cord or even your power strip, etc. It is possible that a ground loop is formed between the PC and your amp, with the Modi acting as one of the ground paths. If you have one, try a portable battery powered amp to check on this, Is your amp plugged into the same power strip / plug? This kind of stuff can drive you mad.

I tried the Weckl - great stuff... big drum sound...  Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Beats" has some great LOW bass also...

check out  Wojtek Pilichowski Band ...

I felt the need to give this setup a bass workout this morning :)

the K712's and the Beyer DT-770's sound fantastic

I use the stack with Grado SR125i's. Since this is my office setup, I work in a cube farm, I usually don't go past o o'clock so my coworkers aren't bothered by my music.

Still a closed beta? (let's derail the thread.)

post #4347 of 12283
Xbox one beta has been open to all since this am
post #4348 of 12283

Xbox One.....ewwwwww eww eww.

 

PC is how you do it.

post #4349 of 12283

Consoles will be obsolete next gen or the gen after that. HTPC is the future and current best choice for doing everything consoles do and more

I have Fidelio X1 (30ohm) and just ordered Magni&Modi, will it be too powerful for X1 then?
