Yes, with IEM's, volume can get high quickly and I did not like that.   I also felt it did a better job as a DAC only and not as a headphone amplifier. 


Wow thanks mate - It didnt occur to me the different Windows versions.

My screwy machine was XP and my home laptop is Win7. Replaced my work XP with Win7 and all is good biggrin.gif

 

The volume is much better now but still quite sensitive for IEMs....I just need to be a bit careful to be off the Volume menu in Windows before I roll the mouse wheel. basshead.gif

 

Thanks

I have an S3 and I tried it.  It doesn't have enough juice to power it.  My Fiio E7 works fine over the otg cable, so I know it isn't the cable.

Hi,

Is it possible to use a Music Fidelity V-Link with the Audioquest DragonFly?  If so, I don't understand what the order of connections would be and how one would connect the output of V-link to the Dragonfly and in turn how the DF would be connected?  

 

Perhaps the idea is nonsensical; if so please advise.

 

Thanks

Ian

Anyone following the GEEK Kickstarter project? It looks very interesting.

I sure am - and backing it.  I'll compare it to the Dragonfly when the time comes.

I am in as well.  From the specifications, it seems difficult to believe they can deliver at their target price point.

The answer to this question is No and No.  There is no reason or method to do so.  The V-link serves the purpose of adapting computer USB digital music streaming output asynchronously to and external DAC.  The Dragonfly accomplishes this internally and thus fulfills the intended purposes of the v-link as well as the DAC.

Hi,

Thanks for the explanation re the DF and V-Link. Very much appreciated.

The Dragonfly+Hd 650 seems an OK combo, I am not impressed.

post #1243 of 1934

I thing you want to add an amp to that equation to get better performance out of the HD650.

That's my plan... Looks like the DAC part of DF is better than the amp part..

 

BTW wonder if you know once I got an amp how can I disable the amp part of DF?

You run the system volume of your computer at 100% and that is basically running the Dragonfly as a line out.  I prefer using it in that manner over as a headphone amp.
