I running this 13 year old M-audio delta 66 and was pretty pleased with it till now, when i began questioning stuff when i bought dt770 80 pro.
The Delta does not have an amp, and its DAC is questionable, i can hear noise without trying too much.
I was wondering if the E10 might be a better option considering it has a built in amp, and the well received WM8740 DAC
As-is, i have to crank up the volume significantly more then i had to with my 48ohm JVCs,
Also i heard the dt770 supposedly can have bass "with a mind of its own" if inadequately driven, and to be honest i do feel like the bass is everywhere with these...
I havent had luck with the xonar DGX (it gave out a lot of noise,didnt sound that great, and had physical popping noises(comping out of the computer case) when changing output types or whatever it was in the software) (this is a sub question btw, if anyone can tell me what was up with that)
Thats my question really, do you guys think getting an E10 would help these cans, or is it not worth it considering I already have the delta66.
Also another question...how would you treat USB audio as opposed to other types of connections? Im still somewhat unsure about it, being USB and all..
