Do you use Ferrites cores/bead on DACs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Could you please enlighten me? I was wondering how could affect ferrite cores DAC signals. Are they worth to use on cables? 

 

To put in perspective, I installed some to a fiio e10, and it sounds somewhat different. High frequencies are softer, but I presume its just my brain playing a placebo effect.

 

Thanks

There are many different kinds of ferrite beads that filter different frequencies at different ratios(and you need specific ones for high speed USB), personally I've tried a good bunch of them on both signal and power cables and could never detect a single audible change.

 

I'm sure they would show a difference on an oscilloscope, though wink_face.gif
