How early does the treble roll off on the ODAC? 10khz? Specs are 19khz, but it sure doesn't seem like it..
Am I the only one that seems like it's treble is almost too polite? Even the Ipod Touch 2G sounds like it has more treble..
Am I hearing things? It's not my amp or headphone.
Still love the ODAC, but this one almost seems dark. Impossible I guess. It's treble reminds me of the SCPH-1001/PS1. Stupid I know..
Maybe my hearing stops at 10khz
The designer's chart measures the frequency response as +/-0.1 dBA from 10Hz to 19kHz. Unless the FR curve has a majorly steep slope right at 19kHz, I suspect there's no audible roll-off until "well above" 19kHz.
He also shows oscope measurements of THD+N from 20Hz to 20kHz, which leads me to suspect there's no significant roll-off at 19kHz.
Disclaimer: I'm not an engineer and I suspect my old ears roll-off "well below" 19kHz.
