Yes! big difference. Anyone that can not hear the difference, should buy some bose headphones, and be happy.

I don't believe there's anything wrong with USB 1.1 - a 24 bit 192khz audio stream is only 9 megabits per second. USB 1.1 tops out at 12 megabits per second, so you shouldn't experience any issues.

Hey guys I'm about to purchase the Schiit Bifrost to pair with me HE-500s and Lyr, but I want to give you my setup to see if its worth the 419 w/ Uber Analog.

 

As of right now I am playing music from my foobar2000 w/ WASAPI through my Creative Labs SB Titanium HD, then using Blue Jeans Canare RCA cable to the Lyr then my HE-500.

 

I have an Onkyo DV-SP1000 which plays SACD, and everything else...and I bought a Blue Jeans Canare opitcal coaxial cable when I do get a DAC. (I know the SACD will only be coming out PCM with this method)

 

I am not sure how good the DAC is in the Onkyo, when this player came out I think it was hand-built and retailed for thousands so I'm thinking it has to be somewhat decent. Since the only ouput that I have is a DMix (I think), it must be downmixing the music somehow out of a red/white RCA connection.

 

My computer is pretty loud, and since the HE-500s are so open I can hear it in the background when I listen to music which is why I'll be using the Onkyo player for music listening.

 

I've already tubed rolled the Lyr with Amperex Orange Globes.

 

Thanks!

The money might be better spent making that PC silent. Antec TrueQuiet case fans, SSD hard drive, fan controller unit for the GPU - water cooling system. In order to fully appreciate any increase in sound quality from audio gear when using open headphones, you want your noise floor to be as low as possible.

Thanks for the reply, ok that makes sense. But what about if I just play music through that Onkyo, would having a DAC be that much of an improvement to warrant the 419 price?

Why not just get a close headphone that isolate the outside noise? :basshead:

I've tried them and not really a fan of em. I prefer open.

Like I said I dont need to use my computer to listen to music.

I don't have much experience with different DACs. Can anyone tell what is characteristic for Bifrost (Uber) soundwise in comparison to other DACs?

Good sound stage neutral sound 3 inputs reasonable price

Don't know if anyone has tried this, but two Bifrosts, in a parallel configuration, reach deep into the recording, delivering its true essence.
