Hi folks, new member out of Tucson, Arizona, looking forward to tap into so much audio experience here.
I am just transitioning into using external DACs to achieve a better listening experience and am currently checking out a few DACs, the problem is I cant find any settings in Windows 7 op system which wouldforce the computer to act only as a transport device, so that it leaves the music bits untouched and simply transferred to the external DAC. So far I don't like the results I hear
I assume that the if the computer leaves the bits untouched, then I shouldnt be able to change the music volume via the computer. Correct?
My music library is in FLAC format, headphone Sennheiser HD 650, mobile device Cowon J3, Computer is Dell Latitude (Win 7 Op sys), I am trying out a HIFIMAN - EF-2A HEADPHONE AMP, Schiit Modi USB Digital/Analog Convertor (with Schiit Asgard as amp), CEntrance DACmini CX, Benchmark DAC1 500-14050-200 2-Channel Digital Audio Converter
Thanks for your opinions
