First off I am a complete novice with all of this stuff so i'm hoping to learn from the plethora of knowledge on the forum!!
I have recently purchased an Epiphany Acoustics E-DAC and Graham Slee Voyager shortly after. I am using these to play lossless files from my Macbook Pro.
I absolutely love the sound of the E-DAC when I come out of the USB and use my earbuds straight out of it. However when I then connect the Voyager and listen through that, it doesn't seem as 'musical' and details seem to be lost. It's almost like a loss in separation. This is of course a slight change but I just don't feel as engaged in the music.
Am I doing something wrong?
I am using the voyager on Flat setting as contour is not pleasing to me.
The mini-jack inter-connnect is not good quality as I am waiting for one from Forza Audioworks currently.
The earbuds are Soundmagic E10's until I have the cash for some good open-back cans as I felt it important to get a good amp and DAC setup before trying different headphones.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
