O2 AMP + ODAC - Page 119

post #1771 of 3453

Lyr/UberFrost is far more engaging, UberFrost/Meier Classic as well.  Individual sounds can hang in their own space.  The o2/odac is a little soft, a little blurry, the distinction is never night and day but it's enough.  Kind of like the difference between a hot girl showing cleavage and no cleavage.  I prefer the cleavage.

 

But for sheer transportability if I can't live without my music; o2/odac is the bees knees!

What headphones are you using as reference? Just to get an idea of the total combo. :k701smile:

Nice. Looking forward to get an opportunity to listen to that combo.

Is anyone else dissatisfied with the O2 volume knob? It feels a little stiff and harder to twist in comparison to my Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII. Is there a smoother potentiometer I could buy to replace it?

Hard to improve on the alps pot for that size, it does loosen up with a bit of use though..

Does the ODAC support DSD playback?

It does. Tried with JRiver on an iMac.

Nice! That's good considering the original designer didn't even mention it once in his blog posts. XD

Thanks for the confirmation!

No problem, just to be exact, I tried DSF, but supposedly is basically the same thing. It played nice on the iMac via ODAC.

Are you sure JRiver isn't converting DSD to PCM? It says "By default, DSD will be converted to PCM for playback" here:

Oh dang it. That's a good point.

Audirvana Plus does something similar:

What would be proper way to try it? I thought something similar but I didn't come with other solution. Let me know and I'll try what I can.
