VenturCraft Soundroid Typhoon - Page 18

post #256 of 332

Based on the inputs, the summary I can make as below about the sound quality:

 

SounDroid (MUSES02) >   Verza >   Go-DAP TT>  DD Socket1>  GO DAP X

 

So SounDroid is the best combo (DAC+ Amp) to pair with iPod Classic.

In term of sound quality, I think nothing can beat DD Socket 1 since it's dedicated DAC.

Good news, onkyo has released an app which allows you to playback DSD and high rez files direct from your itouch devices!

 

https://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/onkyo-hf-player/id704139896?mt=8

 

Excited I know I am! With the release of 128 GB ipad mini I am sure in near future we will see 128 or perhaps 256 GB ipod touch. The UI looks good and should match well with portable DSD amps/dac like typhon, future looking very nice!

Great, I'll talk to them tomorrow at the Tokyo Headphone Festival about it.

Ok, I speak to both VentureCraft and Onkyo.

 

VentureCraft engineer will test what kind of signal that they get out from iDevice with those Onkyo app.

 

I speak to a person that is part of the development team that make the app and he said that without camera connector and external USB Hub (with power supply) it won't sending a higher sampling rate PCM (DoP or whatever) out from iDevices. He said that external DAC will draw too much current from iDevice and apple won't allow it.

 

I try those setup and connect everything to micro USB port instead of standard USB port for iDevice and I can get those blue light at 88.2 kHz on Typhoon.

 

If you want to ask further question, PM me and I'll give you his email.

thanks mthefirst.

 

I am also waiting to see the results.

Does the Soundroid Typhoon have enough power for hard to drive full sized headphones? I'm looking for a portable amp/DAC combo that is more powerful than my Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII to drive my Sennheiser HD800.

 

My UHA-6S.MKII is just enough for my HD800. I have to listen at max volume for very high dynamic range tracks. I'm hoping the Soundroid Typhoon would give me more volume headroom and perhaps better sound quality than my UHA-6S.MKII.

No, for a 300 ohms can you will only get about 8mW max power.

Been looking for a portable amp/dac solution for a while and I thought all that was available to US buyers was the VERZA. Now I see the SounDroid Typhoon - question is, with an iPod classic 5th gen, will this work nicely mated to JH16 and alternatively M100s? (I have no intention of using it with high-impedance sets).

 
GIven the source, are there better / more cost-effective alternatives? I don't want amp-only.

Yes, or get the Sony PHA-1 for about $300.

post #270 of 332
True, the PHA-1 has a disappointing battery life, though. I assume the 2 will be similar.
