No diffence in sound quality with amp

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

 

Just received my Topping D1 mark II. Connected to laptop via USB and then plugged in my Mr. Speakers Mad Dogs. But I can't notice a difference!

The on-board card isn't good, so there should at least be a small difference. But well, nothing.

Or is it just my ears?

Not unusal, there is only a slight difference with cheap external dacs. If you want real improvement, you have to climb the price ladder way up.

So sell the Topping and be happy about the saved money.

Based on this review: http://www.headfonia.com/topping-d1-mark-ii/ I thought that they'd do a good match. While the reviewers noticed significant differences, I noticed nothing...

Good for you that an euphoric review by an expert doesn't fool you into believing you hear differences while you don't. This will save you a lot when you stay on this page longer.

I wish I had this attitude 5 yars ago, would have saved me a little fortune.wink.gifsmily_headphones1.gifwink.gif

I found out that Topping D1 has the following IC ... PCM2704 which DON'T have I2S port , I wonder how they interface with CS4398? Maybe using the PCM2704 Headphone output  (CS4398 no analog input).. crazy build!! Or Amazon printing error, it should had been PCM2707.
