looking for a Firewire 400 \ USB audio interface. For iBookG4.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm recently purchased an older firewire Apogee duet.  I'm finding that It is very fatiguing to listen to.  I was thinking of getting a PreSonus Inspire 1394 based off of my experience with my PreSonus Digimax 96KHz.  The Digimax sound clean and smooth to me.

 

I would appreciate any recommendations.  All I need is a Line out and head phone amp.  Two units? One unit?  Whatever!  Thanks. 

 

Edit: I'm also curious about USB/Firewire cables.  I feel that is an important part of the chain.

What headphones are you using?

You are on your own with digital cables - I buy my cables for $3 from Monoprice.

Right now I'm using "The Superex Professional ST-PRO-B"  I'm considering getting the Grado SR325i Ultimately.  I just moved from my modified Monoprice "Premium Hi-Fi DJ Style" headphones in which I converted to a vented system.

Ahh - vintage cans - nice. I think you might want something with plenty of power to drive those old hungry cans, although I'm guessing venting them might have made them a bit easier to drive. I really don't know much about firewire. If you end-up getting an amp to connect to the lineout of the firewire or USB DAC, then I think I might look at a tube amp - although the cost might be too high. The Grado 325i are low impedance but also not very efficient, so I'm guessing they might also appreciate some power.
